Om, That (Brahman) is infinite, This(Universe too) is infinite. The infinite (Universe) emanates from the infinite(Brahman).  Assimilating the infinitude of the infinite(Universe), the infinite(Brahman) alone is left.


OM, Purnamata purnamitam purnat purnamutachyate, purnasya purnamataye purnamevavasishyate – Bri.Up V.i.1

A SUCCESSFUL BOAT

                                                                              A SUCCESSFUL BOAT

 

I battled for life,

In the middle of the tides

The wind is withering me

High tides are pushing me back

I drifted here and there

The roar of the ocean scared me

The power of the wind bothered me

Left alone,

And unable to find a path,

I accepted every suffering

Suddenly, someone from somewhere,

Began to row me,

As if he knows the path well.

He rowed me through the high tides

He rowed me in the direction of the wind,

But, only to control it.

Till I crossed a point,

Rowing was a challenge for him.

Suddenly, everything seemed peaceful

He left me in the middle, and vanished away

Far away from the chaotic shore

How peaceful it is,

Till I saw, I never imagined a serene ocean

I thanked my Guru,

Who rowed me with the oar of knowledge.

How peaceful it is,

I reached my destination.
