Teachings of Guru
Bestow on me, Uma’s Spouse,Thy eyes’ corners two;
That’s thy slave’s wish
With this shall inertia overcome:
The mind finds no room to feast on any of them.
(Chith-Jada- Chitanam: 2)
Bereft of Grace, one is nothing
But a stinking carcass of bone, skin and vein;
Such one is like a stream in desert, lost,
A fragrant flower sans fruit.
You are existence, subsistence and value,
You are the present verily, and the past and future
Are no other than You; even the spoken word considered
Is nothing else than You at all.
Man as that or this who discriminates
Be he a chief, as animal is he;
When all attachment is completely cut off,
Genuine waters of happiness shall gushing come.
(Descending Inner Experience:10)
Man’s humanity marks out the human kind
Even as bovinity proclaims a cow
Brahminhood and such are not thus wise;
None does see this truth alas!
One of kind, one of faith and one in God is human
Of one womb, of one form; difference herein none.
What name? Caste? Trade? How old?
From questions such, when one is free;one gains release.
From all considerations such, one freed
Himself becomes He, the one Released.
Shadow can’t subsist unaided without model original
As this manifest world itself sans Its original;
Shade is it neither,nor reality; but all things
Seen like a snake an artist cleverly draws.
Always do man every way survive
For Self’s happiness, count this
As the only religion of this world ;
And shunning evil, restrain the inner Self.
Not killing makes a man good
Else an animal’s equal he becomes;
No refuge has the slayer
Although to him all goodness arrive.
In the deep ocean of Your glory
Immersed let us all become
There to dwell, dwell everlastingly
In Felicity Supreme.
