That be A Religion


That be a religion

one that is so regional

could have been worldwide

could have gone wider in tide

could have been restricted  in the sway

could have slowed down  in the way

being one of tolerance  of magnitude

neither enforced  nor   abused  in latitude

one of passive endowments  so  mild

an ancient one with  principles  easy to abide

propagated through oral tradition  from yore

the hymns and the songs  flow

the literature and the  scriptures  denote

revolve around precepts that emulate  in notes

discipline and  decorum  emphasized

faith and belief very intensely   described

not set in rules as others put across

free to practice as now and when  in pause

a concept of a rare quality with an enlightenment

where compassion overtakes passion

where truth overcomes reason

where ideals overwhelm ideas  with an insight

where science and religion coexist

astrology and astronomy work together

predictions and reality go hand in hand  altogether

truth or “sathyam” being  paramount  in life

pretext and pretenseHinduism_Philosophyion are condemned  in the strife

while “karma” holds the loop as we find

the seven births show the precincts  in a kind

being born as per your earlier birth’s deeds

the good and the bad being the outcome  of all deals

the religion has many latent facets and facts

be it called Hinduism as in its  rightful track.

The Secularism I Found.


I hear the church bells

could be  a reminder of the mass

a little away there is a call

a broadcast of the Koran’s clause

as I walk past the lane enraptured

the Nadhaswaram sounds  flow

as the drum beats  capture

the  bell jingles all the way

as people flock to the  portals

devout Christians walk in  all gay

I see the Muslims  paying obeisance in total

recite the Koran with devotion

the temples abound with bhaktas

carry  coconuts and plantains  in baskets

along with flowers  to offer

all in a short pause

not for any cause

but to see the Lord

be him nailed to the cross

be him the Nabi in the mosque

be  Lord  Shiva  and  his consort

or Rama and Seetha

an exhilarating   experience

lends a great significance

the fervour and belief

the  faith with  the relief

could be seen in their faces

create destruct Gods Miracle miracle. Poetry

The Greek And Hindus


There are numerous Gods

in the Greek and Hinduism cards

schedule one to create

another to destruct.

wonder  Gods destruct.

Found in both cultures

as they do nurture

a quaint abstraction

more or less a distraction

similaritiesinclined towards a reverberation.

Shiva in Hindu cult destroys

ignites his third eye  in a choice

Perseus grabs Medusa’s  head

rescues Andromeda

both versions excite  instead.

Countless other Gods they allow

one each, for the wind, the sea and love

chivalry, knowledge, diligence

call for deities in reference

Could be a sign of indulgence?

Zeus and Zephyr to name a few

Vishnu and Krishna take the cue

exalted and enhanced by glamour

along with the shield and armour

enliven themselves with their paramours.

Rituals and festivals abound

accompanied by deafening sound

the upbeat feel is absolute

the unshaken trust  turns resolute

enough to provoke an immolate.

Beliefs and virtues so dear

inculcate a thought of fear

to instil a discipline severe

shapes and figures were engineered

idolatry came to be revered.

Mythology has become a religion  in play

myths are now scriptures  in stay

Gods are in increase all through

penances are ascribed not in few

similarities keep us in blue.

Greek and Hinduism are ancient

their celebrations are fluorescent

talk about miracles in length  all-time

yet the two profess a strength fine

a marvel they are  with shine.

The Religious Embrace


The conversion as such
calls for nothing much
mean the religious change
that be within a range
India being a secular nation
with Hinduism as the religion
along with many others in the fray
Islam, Christianity at the bay
with other faiths in a minority
Sikhism, Buddhism and Jainism as priority
the ancient land of Vedas and scriptures
stays May-23_bahai-religiounited in all other features
the Hindus tolerant in all ways
pay slight attention in any case
the others do not express similar feel
become infuriated and come out with a deal
cry hoarse over their faith being shattered
not knowing that it is each one’s wish and interest
cannot contrive a restriction and a circumspect
politicise the religious beliefs to the wildest
fleecing peace and bringing chaos in the quickest.

Introspections in a Song.


Circle-of-religionsThe mind is not at ease any longer.
It,at times, likes to wander.
it takes a selective route.
Initial round-up is across nature.
Where everything is a lovely feature.
The next sojourn is around human life.
Where every other thing expresses rife.
The final entry is into the realm of religion.
Where all things are controlled by strict instructions.
The mind slowly gets back to its abode.

Settling in its home it deliberates.
How does the universe go about? it is desperate.
Is it governed by some unseen element?
Does the element have form? the mind intersects.
How does it wields its power?the mind dissects.
Does it get an answer to its fullest satisfaction?
Never would it as there are innumerable reactions
in the form of different religions
Hinduism, Christianity,Islam ,Buddhism prevalent in various regions

Religions Speak.


in the name of religionReligions guide us through life.
Living upright is the way of life.
Speak not lies is all religion’s call.
Help the needy is their essential call.
Believe in truth is their underlying principle.
Never belie trust is every religion’s gospel.
Kind words and acts they advocate bring in harmony and peace.
Radiating cheer and happiness they prove demand no fees.
Humility and respect they insist command progression.
Authority and audacity they point out lead to destruction.
That being the basis of all religions at large.
Wherein breaks violence and unrest in a gorge?
Destroying the human race in gross.
Would people ever try to rectify the flaws?

The symptoms of Down.


Rituals keep us tied down.

Religion makes us bow down.

Commitments compel us to flow down.

Fear forces us to lie down.

Distress tracks us almost down.

Struggle combats with thrust down.

Survival is the only thought that blows down.

The Concept Of Religion.


Is religion anything to be afraid of?

Does it hold anything to be scared of?

It is a puzzle that keeps us off.

 

A blind follow of religion is common,

Any question is considered uncommon,

Religious calls are like summons.

 

Believers have different convictions,

Some say it is superstition,

Others express it as hallucination.

 

Well, things go about like that,

The best interpretation of religion is flat,

It says , occupation is religion, with a bat.

 

Business is an occupation,

It proposes a clean transaction,

Indeed, it is a positive perception.

 

Governance is a challenge,

It demands a balance in a range,

Incidentally it is a plausible change.

 

Professionals have to be sincere,

Their vocation commands high revere,

Likely it is  trait of great endear.

 

Each one has his own duty

The  predicament is itself a beauty,

Cumulatively this is religion in its glory.

The Spiritual Destination.


Lot of definitions , lot of thesis, lot of analysis, lot of controversies  engulf the word Spiritual.

Spirit is the soul.

Spirit is the innermost  consciousness.

Spirit is the divine.

Spirit reveals the mysteries of life.

These are all the deliverance of theosophists, preachers.

To an ordinary folk ,like me, spirit is none other than yourself.

Self is the magnificent synergy of  mind and heart.

Hindus believe, death  destroys the body, leaves the soul .

The soul traverses .

Then settles in the body of another.

Thus goes the theory of rebirth.

Hindus believe that there are seven lives.

Christianity puts it firmly ,that there is one life.

Islam advocates reincarnation.

The raging debates and the ranging faiths  keep us in a mire.

Religion is a guiding force.

It is a formula.

It is a hypothesis.

Learning from its analogues is essential.

Deducing our own results should be unanimous.

One man’s meat is another man’s poison.

That ,because one  person got sanctified by following certain principles ,should not be the code of conduct for the rest.

Just ,because one man got cured of his ailment, by singing a hymn in a sanctum sanctorium, need not be aped by another.

Much because one got exhilarated  by chanting slokas  ,must not be copied by a stranger.

Well, because one attained salvation, while meditating under a huge tree.,,should not induce others to do  a similar recourse.

The self should dive deep into the realms of its own thought.

The self should analyse the needs of itself.

The self should choose between that which is necessary and that which is irrelevant.

The self should deliberate on the effacement of the  ego.

The self should embrace an absolute trial to live with   contentment and peace.

I have enough.

I feel it is sufficient.

I am happy.

If the self starts feeling thus, the spiritual destination is reached.

A trip to Varanasi, a pilgrimage to Mecca, a flight to Rome , all become an unnecessary prologue., once you understand self.

Try it .

Achieve it.

Glory be yours.
