All This And That is Simply Love. Dedicated to Harish Prasad. By Manatita






Dedicated to Harish Prasad for his love of life and life of God; his discernment and ability to see beauty in God's creation.

The Light is Love, the shadows Love,

To ‘this’ and ‘that’ I simply serve.

The gates of darkness in You dwell,

Where rogues abide and good men fell.

Sweet heaven came, straight from Your bliss;

The face of every child You kiss.

In religion lives Your hand,

As in the atheist heart You stand.

The 'good' is Thou, the 'bad' is Thou,

Sweet pain abide we know not how,

To quell its ceaseless fire hue,

Awake in Joy, alive, anew.

Garden of beauty




Its Love this mind that implements,

The words on pages I just sent.

Sweet nothing, Love, the Form; the void;

In all my woes, You surely cried.

The babble’s Love, the fool; the new,

The old, the haggard; saintly few.

The scholar, poet; the dullards brew,

And all who never think of You.

On Beauty

Political wiles, You smile; You know,

They reap the seeds that You did sow.

Thou only real; illusion too,

Part of Your body, through and through.

The rich, the poor, the weak; the strong,

All manifest Love's grandeur-song,

Like sun and moon from high above;

The lark, the crow and flying dove.

So come my Lover, Flow in me,

Let me be fashioned; merge in Thee,

When all is gone, so I can see,

Your wondrous works; Your oneness-tree.

Yes Victor. It sure is not an everyday kind of poem. Especially when there seems to be so much suffering. Hope your Sunday is great in Hawaii, and that you have some quality time today.

My dear Mantitta, this is such a gesture from you that I am humbled and wonder if I am worth it ! This poem is really a very sweet explanation of all that is known as love of God. My friend, your words are proof of what happens when one feels the nearness of All Loving God. All barriers are broken when a real essence is absorbed. You've created marvelous literature of substance here for humanity to follow. Loved reading this poem that is a great message of love. Thank you very much, my dear brother. Wish you all happiness and peace !

I accept gratefully and with humility, Harish. I wanted to honour you for some time, but I could not give you one like I do for the girls (smile) It had to be different. I am very happy that you like it. You and I, we move along the same front and try to serve. Higher Blessings. Hari Om Tat Sat!
