Come Preta

You clung to possessions
Large,small and that of others
What eyes of timid karma had you
Hands like claws of eagles' sangha
You fell deep into the brother of sleep
Burn your love for such a greed
Your mind your energy
Irnun without direction
Though in oneness they abide
Your organs of sense
Bloom sorrow and delusions
Let's stop the irnun in transmigration
Come in freod, Preta come
We'll sit together to Buddha hum

Preta 2

You are the undertaker of your life
You began this lineage
By overstepping the Buddhist boarders
Into danger zones of Buddhism
Enjoying the empty pleasures
Closing the doors of escape
With denial without rejecting
Of greed within your mind
Making the karmic baggage heavy

You enjoyed the temporary moments of glory
Never letting go, never retiring
Now accept the price of disappointment
Your suffering does not require an answer
No explanations
As you disconnected from the Buddhist Truth
So were you born

Once your world was full of suffering
And full of overcoming suffering too
Yet you chose the path of greed
Unable to dissolve it
Unable to break the link
Holding on with all your might
Chopping the green tree in your heart
No birds could come to sing

Now in the trap of unfulfillment
You don't like what you have
Where you are
How you are
Still bouncing between aversion and craving
My heart aches in grief
In the midst of your great bitterness
I couldn't be deaf to my own being
Still caring for you
Praying for you
Ignoring the needs of my heart
For you serve as a remainder to me
To heal myself
To keep within the boundaries

I wish to spoon-feed you
With digestive food of Dharma
As you came to me in tears
Fifteen years ago
Slept beside me
As I listened to the whispers of your heart
I know of doors you opened to me
Doors you closed for me

Kisa Gotami

Responding to signals within
Deeply you looked into the face of your child
With the language of your heart
You tried to bend death
Your certainty could not be crushed
You could not escape the nadir of grief
Nor bury the river of sorrow
Failing to touch the dead
Those around the dead
Those living
Impermanence caught your eye
The little gift of suffering
With the Enlightened One
Your pain did not remain a life sentence
Healing us till now

Lost at the station of my life
Not seeing my past
My mind cluttered
I went quiet
My eyes fell upon my house
Idle lay
Standing isolate
Full of tolerance
Not elbowing the tree
Nor questioning it
For growing too close by
Not dying to be in control
Not distorted by failure
Neither wanting an upper hand
Nor showing the power of self
Not thinking of itself
No craving to be better
To be mightier
To be above all
Ruling nothing
Giving no command
Looking still, aware,receptive
Empty is its self
So unlike its owner

The killing of the thought
The confusion, the misunderstanding
Uprooting wrong view
The 'I'
The cravings
The belief in the self
All untrue
Burn the body of self
Kill it through meditation
This is not 'I'
Nothing is mine
Dig the roots of all sorrows
With nothing to rule
Nothing to direct
I don't want to be a king
No one owns me
I own no thing
No one orders me
I rule no one
I chase nothing
Angry people do not pose a threat
Aging,sickness, death is not a threat
I blame no one
Fear none
Refuse to struggle
To compare or cling
With the tamed 'I'
Empty is the self
Burnt to nothingness
As there is no 'I'
How can there be a 'you'?

when the Buddha sang
no one heard
and when silent
singing was unpraised

every petal has its arising
every flower falls
every blade we step over
cut down

the middle way
is our center
our heart
our precious jewel

Go now
stepless, flowering, singing
Buddha polished, ungilded
to Nothing and Beyond

Splashing lagustream with hammering waves
What a powerful stranger this is
Chilling me right to the bone
Enveloping me with such ease
I flush out the last breath of lyft
As clouds of confusion fill my mind
I try to drink the ocean dry
Swaying with no rhythm no sweet rhyme
Lost in this devilish ocean
My head hung heavy bidding silent goodbyes
My soul starts trembling in vain
For thither comes Gigantics
Gulper, Fangtooth and gang
But of karma did John Greenfield secgan
"The tissue of life to be
We weave with colours of our own
And in the field of destiny
We reap what we have sown"
Cepan my body it's all yours
Have to go through the karmic doors
