“ENVIUS THOUGHTS” was born days thousand and eight ago
Time flies and rapidly moved, one thousand days crossed-oh!
One thousand and fifty fifth post this day – happy day
With more than 0ne lakh and seventeen thousand views-hey!
Number one thousand and eight has its own significance
In all the religions and other fields – of magnificence
Lord Siva designated by one thousand and eight names.
He is the God of sacrifices accompanied by Sakti!
During the passion of Our-Lord, one thousand and eight
Persons mocked of HIM on the cross- most sacreligious
Act of the ungrateful people! Envius Thoughts this day
Resolves to continue with its work with HIS grace and views!
“Spiritual retreats” important part of religions many
Hindu, Buddhist, Christian and Sufi (Islamic) -heavy
All resort to RETREATS-in solitude or community
Intimate way to improve powers of concentration and insight!.
Withdrawn from the din and dust of atmosphere in a city
Remote village far from the madding crowd- under the giant tree
A sacred hall with an atmosphere serene, simple but great
Indeed never to be got back the retreat will be a great treat!
Spiritual retreats a source golden for reflection, prayer
And meditation for all more in Buddhism -in rainy season
Goutam Buddha’s preachings! Darkness is ideal for the retreats
For Christians from a few hours to a month) spent away from normal life
Reconnecting, in prayer, with God. a sacred and noble practice!
All religions have their own- for serenity, peace and poise!
Today is third triggering thoughts of three in my mind
A number that attracts every one- TRINITY-a kind
Brahma Vishnu Shiva in Hindu pantheon- taking
Creation, Protection and destruction-quite striking!
India that is Bharath my holy Motherland
Has a tricolor as its proud flag- heartland
Has purity, sacrifice and plenty/prosperity
All the basic needs for a happy society!
Languages galore in a civilized society
Rich in Prose, Verse and play- as the ancient ones claim
Sure make the people cultured, noble and great
‘Three’ indeed has spiritual significance – a treat!
All the religions in the world-four thousand and three hundred
In all- have the goal same -making the people noble and great
For their living in peace and harmony, poise and plenty pure
It is for the people to follow dicta and live noble sure!
Lord Karthikeya- Muruga-Skandha in Hindu pantheon
Is the one revered all through and HIS day was yesterday
The day He felled the demon -surasanhara a holy day
To tell the world man has to fell the evil and succeed!
Human beings we are- created by the Lord Almighty
Have to be good to all-loving and serving all our lives pretty
Helping ever and hurting never as the goal in life
All good things on earth are sure to stand to support us in file!
There are demons more wicked inside than outside to fight
More fiercely- not to be allowed their ugly head to raise right
Anger, Anxiety, Avariciousness, Selfishness, Atrocity,
Envy, Jealousy, Fear, Ferocity, Dishonesty and variety!
A joyous occasion should have been alas- my Lord
“Joy of Giving Day –Deepavali” this day my God
Turned out to be a pompous show- vulgar and vain-pity
Soundest day it was-poor crows and dogs and their kin on run!
Sick and the old suffered not a little -worst pollution
Of sound and smoke- even the strongest could not stand the day
Could do nothing but cursing the young and their damn parents!
Children could not sleep or eat pathetic their parents
Weeping children’s cries- good Narakasura was killed!
Deepavali of late appears neither religious
Nor social but has become anti social and pompous!
Spending five hundred for hundred sounds- atrocious
Not once but fifty times- twenty five thousand drained in sounds!
Making the roads dirty with pieces of papers across
Giving respects scant to the “swachh bharat abhiyan”!
May God bring in some sense in the youth and their parents
Irresponsible to the core spending lavish, exhibiting
Their ugly wealth on crackers! Children in millions
Go without food and dress, engaged in child labor!
Old age homes full of inmates with half food or food less!
Here are people spending lavish in their food and clothes
Worst of all in CRACKERS- should be banned for ever!
Self control and discipline have no place unfortunate
Big stick may help- least concern for the neighbors- they hate!
A great day of joy and happiness for all- young or old
Poor or rich, learned or otherwise- for te brave and bold
Fireworks and crackers make them celebrate the day with joy
All over for the Hindus- nobles winning over evils!
Let us treat this mid day week as the JOY OF GIVING DAY
Giving all love and affection to all around us-pray
Lord Almighty to bless all with the grace, make us all pay
Respects to the old and have nots among us to enjoy!
Soundless Diwali yet quite bright and joyful for all
The sick and old, birds and animals mortally afraid
From the morn till night and days before and after-provide
Only joy of giving what best one can to others- Divine!
“Many things are wrought by prayer than the world dreams of”
So said Lord Tennyson; Prayer to whom looms large to think of
To the humans or Gods-prayer to the Judge in the Bench
Or to the Masters in our profession; or ones we search!
Theists who worship idols in the temple regular
Atheist who decry idol worship in temple
Worship idols-peculiar the busts kept in street corner
Paradoxical is the behavior of humans-simple!
Idol worship is ideal worship for a devotee
Of God – calm and peaceful temple sanctum sanctorum
Mother Mary in a noble and great Church pious
Insha Allah-Masha Allah in a mosque virtuous!
