Without Pride of Tide


The voice of silence is supreme

Beyond all levels of consciousness

All methods of communication

We should jack up listening

Stop opposing

Stop arguing with sagas

Just enjoy their presence

Silence will give us everything

Everything the world can never give

Be like a corpse without pride

A sea without tide

Making Death A Joy



Mantra

A syllable, set of words

Automatically stored

In the unconscious mind

Unaware,unknown to us

Upon death

The ignorant is frightened

The spiritual one is guided

By the stock in his store

Our mantra will peacefully lead

Through darkness

Becoming the torch bearer

Between death and birth

Make mantra, a rare friend

Needed here and hereafter

Let it create the deep grooves

For our minds to follow spontaneously

Our bodies are garments

Cast them off with ease

Keeping the mantra within our lips

Making death a joy

Boy oh boy.

Let It Drift



Time buys us

The real philosophy of life

Thoughts, speech, actions light up

Needing constant vigilance

Not rigid discipline

Learn to commit

Accepting discipline for self-growth

Set rigidity adrift

As we'll only know

What to do

What not

Never can we know

How to be

No Desire To Love In Vain


I loved flowers not happy with all
Now I've found you in a branch so tall
You've all-embracing virtues taught by mum
Affectionate speech, nothing to shun

I love the way you flick your hair
Your glittering eyes, a lovely pair
Not inside nor outside my thoughts abide
My love for you I cannot hide

I think of you night and day
My feet are always headed our way
Your cheeks have a light touch of pink
How should I approach you how should I link?

Your hair hangs down as a water screen
I love to watch you from in between
My desire to see you creates pain
I have no desire to love you in vain

I'll wash your clothes clean each shoe
I wouldn't mind being a slave to you
When men see you, around you they flutter
Like lunatics jumping out of hot water

Losing You Is My Only Fear


Fallen has your soft voice on this fry
Pinning me down by and by
I can't dance to your sweet chime
I've no rhythm no such rhyme

What laws should I hold on to
Can't cut the ropes I'm clinging to
I won't blabber about my fate
My love is yours forget the stake

The Ceremonial Laws of Whipping Gods
Can't bar me from you my sweet dear
Though I have sharp educated swords
Losing you is my only fear

My stream of life begins to sing
To corners of my heart the rhythm you bring
Giving me a new experience every time
I set my eyes on your face so fine

Push me not down the steep slope
I'm not giving up on your wink of hope
Like iron to magnet you I'll follow
Be it at peak or at hollow

All Is This

The puja drum
In rythemic beat
Throwing out
Universality of dukha
Providing mental training
Stirring the mind
To drop wordly things
Bloomed has the desire to see
All sentient beings
On the Vajrasana
The ten myriad repetations
Married the hundred syllable
The mantra of Vajrasattva
Evil confessed
Though still in stillness
The ten myriad offerings
Of the Mandala
Cuts obstacles till today
If all is this
Then this is all
Or is this all?

Mastery Of Life And Death

Life and death were under his thumb
He asked for a spider
I brought him one
Sat and watched him as his abider

He cut it into four pieces
Seperated them from one another
Closed his eyes and sat motionless
The four parts moved towards each other

Having joined together
Away moved the revived spider
It couldn't be hypnosis, what wonder
My scriptual knowledge was way way under

My son
Scriptures, anger, spirits like gin
Would never make you a Dharma King
You have much knowledge of scriptures
Your first hand understanding is out of the picture

Mastery of life and death isn't from lectures
Let your senses develop new culture
When you're studying and learning
Attach not mere words with proud feeling
Dormant fire of passion will go blazing
Good thoughts and deeds it'll be consuming

I Flee

On the mountain
No people no beast wander
The sky I curtain
With rice and water
For guru,Yidam,Dakini and Protector
The Mountain God I forget neither
With unexpected obstacles under blanket
I strip naked
Visualizing my fall into the fire of hell
The heat within me dwell
Unbearable pain me befell
May you attain Buddhahood
To sentient beings I yell
I fire spree
To save, to set them free
My first giant step Adi
Before the next, I flee

A Little Power

A little power makes pride
Not nice
One out of a million have siddhis
Creating stumbling blocks
Lengthening vastly the spiritual path
Egotistical greed creeps in
From intentional cultivation of powers
Swaying away from the Path
Miracles by the Buddha,Christ and other sages
Had a purpose,were spontaneous
Never performed with selfish motives
Never to create a sensation
Then again there is black magic
Looking like genuine siddhi
Enlightenment is entirely different

The fool spent twenty years
Alone in a cave
Succeeded
Produced fire from his mouth
Idiot
I can strike a match without fear
Produce fire in a second.

Again And Again

The sun is down

Little light remains

To a flower I smile

For whom do you maintain?

For whom do you fade?

Again and again

May You Freely Depart

I flee
I hate the cold
Yet hit the brakes
The Hell of Ice
Would never be nice
The mountain of knives I conquer
The tree of blades I climb
I jump around
Become an animal
Bark, mew, bellow
Pig,lamb,chicken and buffalo
I wrap their pain upon myself
Yoked to the field
Whipped by the master
I tire myself
Not resting not lying not sitting
Just touched the surface
The right DU done
The left Du done
Blackish and grey and dark
My body all torn apart
For hell beings to freely depart

Long Growth For Short Dish

As there is life
Desire there is to thrive
Man with sharp knives
Slaughters beasts
Cooked in fire,fried with cheese
Eaten piece by piece
It's a fright to be killed
For the stomach to be filled
The chopping board red in blood
Combine all houses it's a flood
It took a long time to grow
A fry it swam to and fro
Just got hooked, the beautiful fish
Only for just a quick short dish
Eating all meat, red and white
Man thinks he has the right
To know the source of suffering, wars and fights
Listen to the screams of the slaughter house at night.

Avoiding dependence, modesty and even free given fish

The cut the forest
Burning the soil
Devas are crying
Wildlife bakes in this oil

For avenue satisfaction
Righteous they seek
Searching for arguments
But their slights are weak

Not yet they came in touch
With the cause and its aim
Endless spending their time
Other to claim

Having found the mad things
Now the feel secure
In their judgment
Right, noble and pure.

Not seeing what their babel now causes
They even turn on their forces

Bringing hypocrite to its highest peek
About the cause of suffering they do not like to speak

Taking, conquering, praising the way
The sheep now having a righteous possibility to stay

Attached to pleasure, heroic desired
Grasping and clinging for pleasure in life
Using now the righteous
“For the welfare of many – love and peace alternative knife"

Not easy they would find the way out
Following the mass, the "righteous" crowd

Receiving what is given, they did not learn
"It's disdained, dependent and not worthy to yearn."

Taking the flesh out of the face
Now they avoid to do
Cutting into the backbone
The mirror would maybe not sue

Identification is what they avoid to eat
Nothing else then themselves they cheat

*smile*

Purnima

Your Purnima
The very basis of Buddhist Dharma
I've kheer with raisins and badam
You went through extreme austerity
To slam the back door to Enlightenment
To enlighten us
No short cuts
We'll kneel
Pour water and say in reel
All evil thoughts may we eliminate
Good deeds may we cultivate
All beings may we help save
Remembering the dragons
Spurting two streams of water
Hot and cold
Gently cascading down
To bathe You
To bathe us
Wiping our under dirt
Dirt of ignorance, greed and anger
In our Maya body
We clean our thoughts untidy.
