Such total giving
Such total giving

Such total giving
Back to you, the world
Down to the marrow, the bones

Such complete shedding of me
Purge of will
Adoration so deep it becomes surrender

Submission such as roses or stones
As a leaf in the wind
I give up my mind

To the waves of silence
In the still pool

Pariksith Singh

Pariksith Singh is, first of all, a poet and a philosopher, though not of any academic mould. He has evolved, and is still evolving, his own philosophy of life and work which he has been articulating in terms of his very personalized poetry and equally personalized medical practice.

Whether healing a patient, running a business or writing a poem, Pariksith Singh is always looking for that “perfect expression of the spirit in matter” – and this is P. Singh’s unique and consistent signature in all his works.

P. Singh’s literature is the articulation of this “inner quest” for the spirit’s perfection in matter, and therefore an expression of the eternal struggle of form (matter) to attain the supreme fluidity of content (spirit) and content to attain the perfect expression in form.
