Light the Lamp

Light the Lamp

People, today I came across a very beautiful short story and I wanted to share with all my fellow writers.


One night Sri Adi Shankaracharya, a great Advaita Master, was desperately searching for something on the street outside his small hut.

One of his pupils was returning after completing an errand. On seeing his Master in desperation, he could not control his curiosity & asked , “Acharya, what are you looking for here in the street at this hour?”

To which he replied “I lost my needle, I’m looking for it”. The pupil joined him in the search but after searching for a while he asked, “Can you try and recollect where you might have dropped it?”

Shankaracharya said, “Of course, I remember. I dropped it near the bed in the hut.”

The pupil, utterly astonished at the strange answer, said, “Acharya you say you lost it in the house then why are we looking for it outside?”

Shankaracharya innocently replied, “There is no oil left in the lamp, it is pitch dark inside the house. Hence I thought searching for it outside since there is enough street light here.”

While holding back his laugh the pupil said, “if you lost your needle inside the house, how could you even expect it to find outside?”

Shankaracharya simply smiled back and pupil understood the deep message behind the Acharya’s puzzling act.

Isn’t that what we do?

We run to various shrines and religious places, walk up the mountains in search of what we lost inside, in ourselves.

Why?

Just because it’s pitch dark inside!

Silly, aren’t we?

Light the lamp inside you and find your lost treasure.

True Gift

True Gift

I love it when my mother buys me a gift.

And

I LOVE it when my mother buys a gift for herself.

Are you listening??

Are you listening??

Once my soul had a rendezvous, with a beast masked as human. It demanded a reform.

Yelling, screaming, shrieking for a transformation, for an astute manipulation of thoughts.

A keen penetration to my own soul and gouging out all the goodness, burning each thread of benevolence.

Glaring and gaping at me simultaneously, with an uncontrollable contempt so that for once I could be a beast too.

For once I could be the someone who enjoys hurting others

For once I could be the culprit rather the victim.

Those vicious barbarous sounds still lingers in my ears-

Are you listening??Answer Me!

You can be as vile as you want. I’m the darkness you have been waiting for.

Embrace me. Surrender!

Are you listening??

High on Food

High on Food

Squirrels hopping in search of food.
Two eyes staring.
Cat found her food.

The Voices I hear…

The Voices I hear…

The psychic in me talks a lot.

Sometimes it’s just difficult to differentiate between the voice blabbing in my head than the voice whispering in my ears.

Time to Unlatch??

Time to Unlatch??

I thought if I’d run I’ll catch you.

And here we were –Like Poles of a magnet. The more I ran towards you, stronger you repelled from me.

(Process of unlatching should commence when those feelings are cluttered in disarray. Twitching of reins must come to an end when it’s making you go bonkers. Stop, wait, realize till the time you’re sane before you’re outran by incoherent dust of blind love. .)

She donned the darkness gloriously…
When engulfed mine,
I finally breathed.

Strings Attached, Heart-strings intact

Strings Attached, Heart-strings intact

Gentle touch to those strings summoned up the past; throbbed her veins, made her quiver, ignited scintillant glow.

What’s yours?

Song that keeps playing in my head👇

Strangers in the Night

Strangers in the night
Exchanging glances
Wondering in the night
What were the chances
We’d be sharing love
Before the night was through?
Something in your eyes
Was so inviting
Something in your smile
Was so exciting
Something in my heart told me I must have you

Strangers in the night, two lonely people
We were strangers in the night
Up to the moment when we said our first hello
Little did we know
Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing dance away
And ever since that night
We’ve been together
Lovers at first sight
In love forever
It turned out so right
For strangers in the night

Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing dance away
Ever since that night
We’ve been together
Lovers at first sight
In love forever
It turned out so right
For strangers in the night

My favorite Thirst Quencher

Bare desperate feet
marching towards you
Lost all our yesterdays’
are the days I rue…
The only ask I have now-
is just one glimpse of you…
