Treasure Island

Ramdas Bhandarkar

(Madikeri)

All Are Mine, All Is Mine


Trees when smile at man, heart enjoys
cool breeze brings a better day's birth
dawn may be still dark, hope awakened as
birds when welcome rising Sun's rays

Elephant's heart tremble to roar a of lion
but sleeping lion's heart may tremble with
vibrating ground under foot of elephant
ground may vibrate, but earth may not fall.

Many religions, many spiritual disciplines
may change life of men
but not change the course of river
not growth and fall of a tree.

More great Lions, mammoths once feared
ran for life when dinosaurs reigned earth
then also there was vibration in ground
but earth never fell off its track, not moved

Dinosaurs gone, smaller became lions
mammoths reduced to elephants
deer, birds, rabbits, squirrels played
Man came in, now even remain unsatisfied.

Advaita talk about non dual consciousness
Christianity and Islam.. love and prayers
Ahimsa of Jainism, nirvana of Buddhism
stoicism of Greeks, just like foot steps
Ground may vibrate, but earth may not fall

Truth is truth, Many books are published
Truth is yet in unpublished book of universe
probably mankind may end its journey
but Truth remains as it is, only as experience
only a personal, not sharable nondual experience

Dogs are dogs, bark and bite, fight or flee
fear and feel, whether large or small
black or brown or white, like people are people
Advaita is beyond all duality, non dual existence...

Namaste or salaam, better than hello, hi
good morning, good evening and goodnight
love is better than hate, bouquet is better than fight
loving self, seeing it everywhere its greatness is mine
its follies, its foolishness, its love or cruelty, all is mine...

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
