Kindness is my religion

Shaloo Walia is an astrologer and tarot reader. She is an Art of Living teacher and also an ardent Krishna devotee and a follower of ISKCON.

An ordinary soul seeking answers,

Questioning the creation and the creator,

Analyzing the purpose of this mortal existence,

A sincere seeker in the pursuit of truth.

Where have I come from, where I have to go

And while I am here, will the mystery reveal?

Striving for perfection, searching for answers

Following the Master, walking the path

Being more humble than a blade of grass

And more tolerant than a tree.

Amidst meditations, diving deep into silence

While chanting or the prayers

A tiny voice whispers a simple advice

“If nothing else, be kind.”

Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.

— Desmond Tutu

      Hi Swalia. I really thought this was a good poem. An important poem that makes a valiant point, it really doesn't matter the creed of everybody's religion. There is one religion we should all practice and pray for and that is kindness. I like the message in your poem. Good Job. :)

      Thank you Missy. All the religions preach love and compassion. Yet, it's sad to see people fighting each other in the name of religion. I believe that love and compassion for the fellow beings is the greatest religion.

      true Jackie! All religions preach love and compassion. Yet human beings fail to understand the real essence of their religion and fight in the name of religion.

      @sgbrown I am glad you liked the poem. I strongly believe in the 'law of attraction' that Rhonda Byrne has explained in her bestseller 'Secret'. We attract in our lives what we think and what we give!
