April Poetry Month Day 18 Poem: Akshaya Sadhana

Today is Akshaya Tritiya. The muhurta of Akshaya Tritiya is considered as propitious for buying gold symbolically as a wish for Akshaya prosperity. Kshaya means loss or decay, Akshaya means something which is beyond any kind of loss. Today's poem is a prayer to my Sadgurudeva H. H. Shri. Narayankaka Dhekane Maharaj for the blessing of Akshaya Sadhana and devotion to it.

This post is the 601st post on Narayankripa. One more milestone in the long journey. Thank you for all the support and unfading love for Narayankripa.

April Poetry Month Day 17 Poem: Law of Karma

The brutal gang rape and murder of Asifa has shaken the country. I find myself too insignificant and small to talk about justice, law or court case. All I have, as a poet, is my pen and my faith in the law of Karma. In today's poem, I tried to express these feelings and while writing this poem my pen and fingers felt helpless thinking about the suffering of the little angel.

April Poetry Month Day 16 Poem: Lifeline

Today’s poem is dedicated to the epic Mahabharata. A superstition is widely spread about Mahabharata. Ironically, among many devout Hindus, this false belief is followed that the holy scripture shouldn’t be in our homes as it may initiate war-like conditions among family members. I don’t see any reason, why a true knowledge-seeker or any devout Hindu should fear Mahabharata.

Here's the dedication to Mahabharata:

Mahabharata, the epic of great ancient Bharata
The epic where Krishna meets us with Bhagwadgeeta

April Poetry Month Day 15 Poem: Not My Leader

April Poetry Month Day 15 Poem 'Not My Leader' on leadership or lack of leadership:

Delivered emotional speeches
one after another
when you weren't in power,
to take necessary action
you shed tears for country's plight

People trusted you
People trusted your words full of promises
People chose you as their unanimous leader
And then it's only you and you
