Eight Years of The Blessed Mission Narayankripa

4th July -- The day a mission for peace called Narayankripa was born. 4th July 2018 eighth anniversary of our blessed mission Narayankripa.

The first blogging anniversary had felt like a huge success. As the years passed, looking back today the journey so far feels so short and when I try to set my eyes on the future path the view ahead is a long infinite road to travel. The road touches the horizon where only light exists. Brightest possible yet soothing. Farthest ever yet so inviting that I can touch, feel it around me. Stations, milestones, halts look as the tiniest marks in the expedition today when my eyes focus on the light. Yes, however small the milestones may feel they're special...each station has given me memories to treasure for the entire lifetime and they told me that the next station is even more beautiful. They reminded me that I can't halt at one place after my time there has passed; I must move forward towards the light calling me.

Poem: Is Poetry Dead?

"Poetry is dead"
"Who says it?"
"Poetry is dead!
Who writes it passionately?
Who reads it passionately?
Who loves poetry anymore?
Poetry is dead"

For Peace and Purity -- The Holy Month of Ramadan

Ramadan Kareem dear friends! The sacred ninth month of Islamic calendar -- Ramadan has begun. Narayankripa blogs primarily about Indian culture and traditions, but today I'm blogging on Ramadan as a spiritual seeker and also as someone who believes Advaita.

I am using the word Ramadan instead of Ramzan without any hesitation. I have read many times about the Ramadan-Ramzan word usage etymology and cultural roots, but Ramadan sticks in my mind because of my childhood memories.

April Poetry Month Day 30 Poem: PoetryPuja

It's the last day of daily poetry celebration. But that doesn't end the poetry celebration. We may not meet every day, but our revered poetry celebration will continue in future as well.

We began the celebration with SaraswatiPuja with a prayer to Maa Saraswati for the successful celebration. And we've succeeded today. Today's poem is a gratitude poem to Maa Saraswati for fulfilling my Sankalpa and completing the April Month PoetryPuja.

Thank you, dear friends, for joining me in this endeavor.  It became possible because you were with me. Thank you.

The serene lake
I reach out to find myself
in my struggle with the dark days
