Poetic insight into Shrimad Bhagawad Gita – 2

  • Bhakti

 

What?

To god, one surrendering

His bodily ego dissolving

 

Likes and dislikes vanishing

Worldly identity disappearing

 

That is devotion, true bhakti

Another name for non-duality

 

God and bhakta no different

No desires of body impermanent

 

God consciousness, no cares of world

That’s liberation while living in world

 

Why?

Maya, Creator’s aspect illusory

Casts a powerful spell sensory

 

Gunas like genes in cells biologic

In terms of known theory scientific

 

Sattvik, rajasik, tamasik

Living beings’ natures basic

 

Ridding Maya spell, impossibility

Just surrender to God Almighty

 

Many paths to liberation spiritual

Bhakti is the easiest and universal

 

How?

Change outlook completely

Discard worldly desires totally

 

Seek not pleasures of ego, bodily

Nor company of people worldly

 

Anger, greed enemies powerful

In the path to detachment total

 

Bhakti all about attitude mental

Not at all about rituals external

 

 

God needs only sincere mind

Not materials of various kind

 

Rituals and materials just physical

God, however, is transendental

 

Rituals may help focus the mind

On god, away from world unkind

 

Rituals may cause fear and doubt

About what is wrong, what is right

 

Hands busy in rituals elaborate

Mind wandering all over planet

 

That can’t bring benefit spiritual

Of liberation and bliss eternal

 

Engaged in normal activities daily

Mentally firm in life’s purpose godly

 

Mind engrossed in god eternal

That’s the true bhakti non-dual
