9. Your Glory O’ Baba

How can I sing your glory, O’ Baba ! !

Is body is full of filth

I am afraid

When your name emanates from the core of my heart

And reaches my lips

It may get smeared

With the foul smell of my breath

Which may pollute it.

But haven’t it been said throught the ages,

The name of God sheds its eternal fragrance

All around

And purifies all that comes into its spere.

Why should then even the thought of pollution

Enter my mind

And waste the precious moments

Which shall never return.

10. A Visit to the Hills

Basking in the cool comfort of the hills

Amidst peaceful surroundings

All to myself

In the deep crevices of my heart

I adore you, O’ Baba!

How merciful and benevolent are you

To me

Bent down by age and physical infirmities

And yet the ‘I’ within

Enjoying the bounties of Nature

And thy abounding grace

Withi nothing in between,

I and you and the Mother Nature.

Could one crave for higher joys of life?

The supreme bliss overflowing

Both inside and outside me.

Why lament for the wasted days of life!

Those were yours and so is today.

O’ the Self live in the present.

As wasted moments shall return

Never again.

And feel His love and grace.
