(36) Svadharma

Svadharma concept quite distinct

From dharma or religion extant


Svadharma way of life for individual

Towards liberation from life physical


Religion is collective principle

Code for coexistence peaceful


Every individual life predesigned

With distinct karmic role coded


Role enacted by genes underlying

In the drama of creation fascinating


Svadharma is individual way of living

Per one’s aptitude, situation, liking


Doing what is warranted at the moment

God conscious, without selfish interest


Follow svadharma, even if difficult

Or is likely to entail certain death


Paradharma avoidable, even if easier

For that, shun duality of pain, pleasure


Accept fruit of svadharma, sweet or bitter

Incur no sin, even by killing people score


Don’t compare your life with another

Don’t put in a round hole, a peg square


Do what fits your capabilities, limitations

Not solely out of desires’ compulsions


Desires bind to repeat life after life unending

Horse chasing sheaf of grass, never reaching


Everyone’s role fits the big plan of Creator

Abandon svadharma and mess up big picture
