Thought and its Futility
Thought and its Futility

Thought and its futility

Are seen

Desire and its pointlessness

Are seen

Fear and its subsidence

Are seen

The unwavering flame of attention

Engulfs all that is

Mind is still, void of content

Ego sinks back in quiet repose

To its source

All is as is

Naturally at ease

And the Self is all there is

A presence within and all around

The benevolent monarch

Calm and eternal

Patient and gentle

Soft and subtle

All-pervading, yet untouched

Creator, mover and destroyer

Of worlds upon worlds

Which are all but itself

Playing with itself

The raas of Krishna

And Shiva’s tandav

Are one cosmic dance

Of the unmoving Self

मैंने देखा मौन का साम्राज्य

Poetry by Omendra Ratnu

वाणी के जगत के समानांतर, धारण किये उसे भी , किन्तु अस्पर्शित, अभेद्य , अप्रभावित, स्थापित एक वर्तुल में ,स्वयं में लीन विस्तीर्ण और अविभाज्य ! मैंने देखा मौन का साम्राज्य , वाणी के भरता घाव स्थायित्व से , गर्भवती स्त्री सा , स्वयं से ठीक विपरीत को पोषण दे , पूरी सहिष्णुता से, बिन राजा , बिन प्रजा , ये कैसा राज्य ! मैंने देखा मौन का साम्राज्य … भासता निष्टुर , किन्तु है करुणामय , बैठा अनमना सा, ढोता ब्रह्माण्ड को सहज ही , निश्चिन्त उपवास में रत , देता प्रवेश निस्पंद , विदा भी, बिन क्रंदन , परम अद्वैत में स्थित, न कुछ ग्राह्य , न त्याज्य ! मैंने देखा मौन का साम्राज्य
