23. I And You are One

Baba!
I often say that you are my Master!
If it is so
Does it not mean?
I and you are separate entities.
Is it correct to think thus?
Immediately on entering my life
You occupied the inner chambers of my heart
Driving the ‘I’ almost out of me
But do you not remember
It is you alone who told me
To complete the discharge of my responsibilities
Before you allow my ‘I’ to leave the body

And clever as you are
You slowly showed me the beautiful garden
Of rendering organizational seva of your
And the flowers of various hues sporuting therein
Name, fame and position.
Exceedingly charming to look at
It I got involved in their beauty
Leaving you on the back buster
How can you blame me for it
For it was your own doing.

Let be gones be bye gones
Why shall I talk of the past?
You are now firmly enthroned in my heart

Make me lose my sepearat identity
So that eternity may sing songs
Of your pure Divinity
And call you
The Bestower of Grace of your bhaktas
Making them one with you
Shedding away the distinction
Of Master and servant.

24. When the World Sleeps

When the world sleeps
You O’ my Baba!
Keep wide awake.
Your watchful eyes
Keep a vigil on your bhaktas
To rid them of their miseries.

Day in and day out
At all times of the day and night
Unmindful of the calamities of Nature
During winter, summer and rains
You remain constantly absorbed in your task
Don’t you ever feel bored?
O’ my Baba.

And what you normally get from those
Whom you protect with all your abounding love?
Mouthful boasts of their own prowess
Of their capacity to achieve, their intelligence to plan and what not
Why don’t you share with them
Your patience, your coolness, your dedication
O’ my Baba!
You are great and wonderful.
