Corona to Compassion

A Hindu by birth

But today if

My religion be asked,

I would say it is compassion

It is being kind

And being humane!

And if I be asked

Do you believe in God?

Of yes,

With all my mind,

With all my being,

With all my heart!

My God is Love

There is nothing but Love

And Love is all that we need to have!

So let us be Kind

Let us be Compassionate and

Let us be Humane!

Let us Pray and

Let us Serve

And make a conscious choice today;

To shift our thoughts

from Fear to Faith,

from Corona to Compassion

She has begun to Heal

She was crying

And we heard her not,

She was saying

That she was hurting;

But we were deaf

To her calls!

She was burnt,

And she was beaten,

She was raped

And she was cut;

But we kept

Beating our drums,

And kept dancing

On Her breast;

Without missing a single step,

And a single beat of

Our hearts!

But the Divine Mother,

That she is,

She still kept loving us;

She kept

Shedding tears for us!

And She kept pleading on our behalf:

Forgive them Father,

For they are your children;

However ignorant and lost!

Our Heavenly Father,

Who is both:

Wisdom and Law;

He shed tears for us too;

But how could He violate

His own formed Laws!

He does love us,

But His love for Her,

Is equally vast and deep!

Both have forgiven us

And She has

Begun to Heal!

I can see it in Her eyes,

I can see it in Her smiles,

Hidden in the clouds and the sun beams!

I can smell her

Fragrant breath,

And I can hear

Her sigh of relief;

She just had her rain bath,

And is blissful in her glee!

HOPEFULLY

We have learned

Our lessons;

And shall be more aware,

In the years to come;

Of Her feelings and Her needs!

And these are

Just like ours;

A little more respect,

A little more care;

And much more love;

That is all She needs.

United in Fear

Am so happy

To see us all

Standing United!

Families and Friends,

Communities and Nations,

Of the World

At large!

Yes, I am happy

At the same time sad;

That we stand

UNITED in FEAR

And shall soon scatter

And depart!

So sad but true

Just wait and watch;

For we have more Fear

And much less

Faith and Love

In our Hearts!

A day will come

Maybe in times

Distant and far;

When we shall

STAND UNITED

But never again

Scatter and Depart !

For then we

Shall be together,

Once again;

Not in Fear but LOVE,

For One and ALL!

I am Praying

I am Praying

For that is the Highest I can do!

I am praying for the ones

Suffering from the virus,

And I am praying

For all scary souls

Thoroughly bewildered

And completely lost!

I am praying for

The Doctors and the Nurses,

And am praying for all

The Helping Hands;

Who are working tirelessly

In all the lands!

I am praying

For the Destitute,

The Homeless,

The daily Wage Earners

And for all,

Who are Marginalised!

I am praying More for

Ones suffering from

The greatest virus of all,

FEAR

Which has paralysed

Our Intellects and

Power of Thought!

And I am praying Utmost

For Leaders of the World,

Business and the State;

They need much more

Wisdom, Compassion and Strength

To work for the Highest Good of all!!

So let us PRAY

And strengthen our FAITH

For that is HIGHEST

We can do,

Every minute and

Every hour of the day!!!

PS: I learned this great lesson from our Swami Shraddhanandaji, a very senior monk of Yogoda Satsanga Society of India and Self Realisation Fellowship founded by Paramahansa Yogananda more than a century ago.

We shouldn’t say: The only thing I can do is pray. It is the best, it is the highest we can do. And yes we can and should give any other help and assistance we can give.

I had the honour and the privilege to be with him for a few days, earlier this month, and I learned so much.

Please do check out the Home Study Lessons of Paramahansa Yogananda, at SRF and YSS websites. These cover everything we need to take care of our body, mind and soul, in all times, and specially at testing times like these.

She has begun to Heal

Why Corona Why

Dear Corona,

Why have you come

Whence have you come

When would you go

Whither would you go

Are there other planets

And dimensions that you roam?

Corona, O mighty Corona

Do tell us all that you know!

O yee humans

I am a tiny little virus

What would I know

That you already don’t!

Yet however small and however little

I am part of the One Big Whole!

I shall do my bit and leave

As others before me have

I know it and accept it

I don’t have grand dreams!

But yee mighty humans

Who are blessed

With such INTELLECT and

CONSCIOUSNESS supreme

Why do you kill?

Oh why, humans, why

do you suppress

And subjugate

Your very own

Is there no end

To your greed?

Like me you too shall leave

You too shall have to go back

Like others before you

But you still don’t learn

And you still don’t see

That you too are a nothing

Just like me!

O humans, wake up

Wake up before you

Are smothered and vanquished

Just like me and the likes of me!

Kill me if you would

But don’t hate me

For: Hate consumes the Hater

And not the one hated.

How many vaccines

Would you make

How many remedies

Would you use

Mightier viruses would come

And shall keep coming too

Till you learn …

Till you learn

To become more humane

Till you learn

To become more kind,

And till you learn

Oh yes, till you learn

To conquer your very own

INNER-SELVES!!

For I am not your enemy

It is within you

And it is your EGO

Which is MIGHTY BIG

And not the tiny me!!

Let go of your Ego

And let go of your Pride

Bow down with Humility

Then you shall learn

That there is no separation

We are all ONE – LOVE

💕💕💕💕💕💕💕

Virus O’ Virus

Virus O’ Virus

O Corona Virus

You are so tiny!

And you are a pigmy

Compared to the likes

Of Ebolas of the past!!

And yet you

Have become

The most talked about

And scariest virus of all!

Oh how powerful

You must be feeling

Hearing how invincible

You are!

I hope you are grateful

To the media

For glorifying and magnifying

The few microns that you are!!

Take my advice

Gracefully bow to the

Publicity wide and far!

And quickly withdraw;

Just like your arrival

So sudden and so fast!!

We know so little

It is so easy to find fault

It is so difficult to do!

It is easy to see what is wrong

It is difficult to do what is right!

When we say how stupid

It is we who lack wisdom!

To see beyond the seeming

And perceive the Truth!

Alas! We know so little

And we judge too quickly ☺️

Falling Leaves 🍁

Winter is yet to say bye

Spring isn’t saying hi

But leaves are falling all around

Is it autumn’s hi?

If trees start to worry

About the fallen leaves

How shall

Fresh blossoms bloom?

Falling leaves are His blessing

Sunshine warms the heart

Beauty in His own handwriting

Heavenly and sublime

Life is beautiful and divine

Fallen leaves or

Blossoms fresh

Adding different hues to its charm

Thy Majesty 💕💕

Thou art a magician!

Thine unseen touch changes our blemish into beauty, our emptiness into fullness, our life’s harshness into sweet tenderness.

The marvel of Thine infinite majesty fills my heart with wordless ecstasy 💕💕
