Stotram: You Are With Me

For the past eight days we have been praying Maa Bhagawati in various forms like Mahayoga Sadhana, Kundalini Shakti, Sadguru, Kulaswamini, Women. We even had Darshana from some village temples. Today is Ashtami, 9th day. Yesterday, I felt very relaxed and absolutely free from all the doubts keep bothering our mind due to ignorance.My ignorance - Agyana and thoughts  confined in the material boundaries disappeared by praying and thinking about her presence. I realized her power and why She is Shakti. Today's poem is in the form of my conversation with Devi Maa. The first poem is a hymn to Maa and the second one is in the form of assurance by Maa to her children.

The prayers I could express for all the Navaratri are my heartfelt emotions written in tears.

My Prayer to Devi Maa: 

Millions of names you have
They cant describe you completely
Millions of hymns sing your glory
Theyre incomplete till today

Poem: Do We Really Worship Devi Maa?

Today's poem is dedicated to the worship of Devi Maa in the form of women.

Yesterday I participated in a Twitter chat (Check with hashtag SpiritChat) on celebrating Divine Feminine. My thought about best way of celebrating the supreme power is ending the gender bias. When we worship Devi Maa, the major focus is on rituals and worship in the form of Murti. However, our devotion to Mother Goddess won't be complete till we won't work rigorously to stop the crimes against women and gender bias. Today's poem is all about womanhood.

Hymn: My Life - Sadhana

Today is the third day of Navaratri festival and this year, worshipping Maa Amba in the form of Kundalini Shakti. My life is blessed by Mahayoga path of Sadhana. Sadhana is a life long journey towards self-realization. Mahayoga Sadhana is the worship of Prana - in simple words the worship of our involuntary breathing. Today's poem is a hymn to Maa Kundalini Shakti. Since the auspicious day of Deeksha, in the journey of life and Sadhana,  Maa Bhagwati has become my greatest power. Whenever I think about how Sadhana protects her devotee every moment and how she has blessed my life, tears start rolling....words start flowing.

Poem: Leadership Void

The political era we have been witnessing in recent years seems to be turning into more and more immature leadership. Is it the influence of social media that gives a feeling of power by creating followers' army to attack, abuse the opponent or trend 'whatever' to prove the power to the world? It's quite difficult to analyze the inconsistent policies of Indian political parties these days.

Poem: Yes, I am a Poet

Today UK-wide celebrations for National Poetry Day are going on. I just saw National Poetry Day trending in Indian twitter trends also. Poems and poets are beyond all the boundaries. Reading amazing poems and celebration tweets, I have proud feeling, "Yes, I am a Poet." I thought, why not have some love for poems and the bond between, you and me, that inspires me to write more? A poem dedicated to poets and their power.

Proud to wear the title,
"Yes, I am a poet"
I write for my soul,
Write for my love
"Yes, I am a poet"
