A deep dive

A deep dive

A resplendent light
lights up the heart;
and a gush of energy
ignites, pours and
drenches me in a
wave of happiness!

Moments before
a thousand thoughts;
unceasing;
like the
waves in the ocean
were lashing the mind;
creating varied
hues of emotions;

Staying on the surface
getting swept in these
waves is pain;
below the surface
beyond the reach of the waves
is resplendent calm and
pure bliss; sweet as honey!
Waiting to be tasted by
all who choose to dive in!

The Encounter On The Road

In the madness of
peak hour,
bumper-to-bumper
traffic;
horns blaring,
all on a edge;
trying to squeeze
their vehicles into
non-existent space;
in a rush to reach
their destination!

I had an encounter!
Caught in an unexpected space,
eyes on the road,
mind somewhere else
music in the background;
The grey monsoon clouds
threatening to rain;
the gentle swaying of the trees
in that sweet monsoon breeze!

All these
faded into oblivion
as Wisdom dawned!

I strained to hear
what It had to say;
but, I caught not a word!

Yet, in that short,
muted exchange
It left me with a
still heart and a
peace inexplicable!

It comes when It wants to
and I mostly have
a fleeting encounter;
Like a stolen kiss,
it leaves me wanting more of It!

Unconditional Love

In the depths of
meditation,
where the mind
disappears into
nothingness
frozen
and then
awakens
to random thoughts;
somewhere out there
in that space
I remembered Him;

Frozen body
and an open heart
swirling in an energy
– indescribable –
soaking the mind
and heart
in light and love!

The foundation of Sadhana
is devotion;
yet it is Sadhana that
strengthens the Devotion.

Even on the driest
days of Sadhana;
where the mind is
just not into it;
a remembrance is
all that is needed
to be showered
with
unconditional Love!

Thoughts after Kriya/Meditation: 30-May-2017:: There are days when the Sadhana becomes a routine, a chore, almost a mechanical practice, done just for the sake of doing; the mind hurrying me to complete it as soon as possible; and then the reminder comes, that it is grace that allows the practices to happen; all I need to do is to remember, feel and surrender!

The Universe within!

In the deep stillness
where the mind stands still,
the breath ceases to flow,
in that vacuum of nothingness
I get a feeble glimpse
of that vast Cosmos;

A moment, I am part of it;
Another, it is part of mine;
Still. Unmoving. Quiet.
Yet, A buzzing field of action!

The Sankranti Bonfire

The lone
North Star
shimmered even more
brighter;
as it watched
The Mystical One
light a fire
of Consciousness
that devoured
all the thoughts
and minds
of the thousands of ones
who meditated with Him
in the dark, chilly
winter night!

The Light Within

The soothing rays
of the winter sun
soft, yet luminous
ignites
the light within
a billion times
brighter;
erasing the duality
and lo!
The Oneness pervades!

Bright as as bright can be;
setting the heart ablaze;
the gentle soft rays
ignite the fire within;
and lo!
The Light within is the Light without

Seek it outside
or within;
The One Light pervades all.
Such an awesome revelation!
