Poetic insights into Shrimad Bhagawad Gita – 5

(5) Spiritual life

 

Fire ritual, penance, charity

Spiritual life’s holy trinity

 

Fire ritual in modern times

Means performing duty righteous

 

Without expecting fruit for self

Purely for the Universal Self

 

Penance is not going to forest

Chanting divine name on one foot

 

Nor is it starving for years on end

To meet god beyond world’s end

 

Penance is all action worldly

Speech, Thought and Bodily

 

Done in total god consciousness

Without any slightest selfishness

 

Charity is giving wholeheartedly

Without benefit for self worldly

 

Income less or more, immaterial

Sharing a part of it charity noble

 

Into three, life activity divided

Saatvik kind is spirit oriented

 

Rajasik is worldly selfishness

Not showing any kindness

 

Ignorance, laziness tamasik drivers

Causing deliberate harm to others

 

Engaged in saatvik is seeker spiritual

For him rajasik, tamasik avoidable
