The Ultimate Liberator!

For the seekers of knowledge
Can there be a knowledge?
better than
The Knowledge of The Divine, Shri Rama!

The one who liberated
Even the blades of grasses
And all the swarms of ants

Leaving none behind
That ever existed
In the Good City of Ayodhya

And placed them in
An exotic heaven
Created exclusively for them
By the Great Grandshire Brahma!


Ramayanam is Agriculture
Bhagavatham is Harvest

The twin-syllable, Rama
When a devotee exalts!
The Birth-Death cycle
It permanently halts

Goodness and Wealth
It everyday brings
Sin and poverty
It cleanses and shrinks


Goodness Honesty Sweetness Simplicity
Gentleness Strength Humility Bravery
Valour Talent Prowess Success
Memory Trustworthiness Heroism Genuinity
Such adorable qualities and so much more
By chanting Rama's name you will score!


My Lord's Story: Goodness Incarnate

Ramayanam in English poetry.

The Supreme Lord of the Universe was once born on this earth as a Human Being, faced challenges and had His share of pain and pleasure going through both good and bad times like any of us. Like any of us He too, took His turn in laughter and cry.

This humility of The Lord, that makes Him come down to earth and share with us our difficulties to show us a way to handle them is what I admire in Him. This quality of Him, makes me surrender to Him unconditionally and makes me want to sing His Glory on and on and on.

My Lord's Story is an out pour of my devotion that seeps out in gratitude for the pains He took to be a lighthouse for us, to cross the ocean of Samsara.

Smile of God!

Drenched by a shower
This cute little flower
Smiled at me warmly!

Not a word did it utter
Nor did it mutter
But taught me a lesson calmly!

"The weather does palter
My spirit does not falter
Heat and cold alter
I look not for a shelter

I know my precious life is too brief
I do not want to spend it in grief
I make use of this little while
By bearing the best possible smile

My smile is for both good and bad
Hoping to make men not look sad
Giving joy to men like you
Inspiring them to write Haiku

My smile is for all, alike
Not a soul, I do not like
Rich and poor; Honest and fraud
For, I am the little smile of God."

Story behind the poem:
Last weekend was a rainy one. After the rain subsided I took a few photos of the wet atmosphere and mailed them to one of my best friends and a co-blogger, Venuss66 She liked them and suggested me to try writing a poem for one of them. Though I blinked for a moment, by the grace of Lord Rama, I could come up with this one. To visit her poetry blog, click here. To view the other few photos, click here.

Dear Venus,
Thanks for initiating me to write this poem. If you hadn't asked, I wouldn't have written this. So you are the reason behind this poem. Thanks for that.

Meaningful poem, well written.We have lots to learn from nature like Avadhuta who derived his lessons from observing their way of living. He had 24 teachers.-Uddhava Gita.

shri ramesh sadasivam said...

Hello Hema,
Welcome to my blog. Thanks for the visit and comment.

Yeah, we have to be like Avadhuta. That chapter is one of my favorites from Krishna's wisdom.
