Atamshakshatkar-Divine Bliss


I kneel at the feet of my Guru,
Longing for blessings,
waiting for Myself to be revealed to me.

Guru, the store house of cosmic energy,
showers his grace.
The blocks within melt,
The Life flow acquires a new meaning.

The cosmic energy flows, pulsating in every cell and nerve
Pounding within and around breaking down barriers..
It moves with a life of its own
Dragging down you away from the hold of the senses..

The centre of gravity shifts.. and the tiny flame within appears..
The silence gives way to a whirlwind of activity.
The large flame swirls and twirls at supersonic speed..
Throws out majestic flashes of patterns of light
The naked dance of light
No words can describe.
Is the brilliance of the Lord.

Then there is neither light nor darkness
Neither this nor that as the tiny flame is engulfed.
Back to the world of senses..
In wonderment and thanksgiving to my Guru..
For taking me to the Lord's doorstep.

    Di speller of darkness deep
    He/She comes when you most need
    To guide your way when the going is steep
    Pushing and sometimes carrying you across the Meade
    Till we all eventually the promised heaven reach
    Or into the divine dissolve and in ecstasy cease......

    Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev (Isha foundation) has been my guiding light for more than a decade now and your poem reflect my feelings too for my Guru....... (Report) Reply

    a difficult write is what that covers some abstract feeling! ! !
