The Thousand Names

Each one,
beautifully
juxtaposed,
like a garland
of scented
flowers;
ebbing and flowing,
in a rhythm
like a mountain river,
penned with
deep love,
kindling love
and devotion,
the thousand names
not enough
to describe the
infinite attributes
of the Radiant One!

Chanted and heard by
millions and millions
in the timeless, recurring
cycles of manifestation
and dissolution of the
yugas.

As the white light
dispersing
from a prism
forms a rainbow;
the Names,
a constant reminder
of the underlying
presence
of Divinity in
this colorful,
pulsating,
Universe.

As the rainbow
gets recomposed
and merges with
the white light,
so to, chanting
and hearing the
names,
takes one back
to the source
– the effulgent,
Radiant, Loving One
