HAPPY BIRTHDAY BELOVED Sri Swami Vishwananda June 13, 2015
-By Swamini Vishwalakshmianandama (Swamini Lakshmi) Written for Sri Swami Vishwananda On his 28h Birthday, the first year we met in America,, 2006
NO BEGINNING—NO BIRTHDAY—NO END The Guru's Ash
An urn carries Sacred Ash of the Guru,
Spun by his human arm,
Brought forth from the depths of his soul,
The essence of His Self
No beginning—No Birthday—No end.
The Guru's devotees gather to partake
Of the Ash — the bounty of his wisdom.
The Guru’s Ash conveys the meaning
Of life, the everlasting Truth of Love.
Love is All There Is—the Divine.
Fish do not know the wisdom
Of the Guru’s Ash,
That they are One with the All.
In total unawareness,
They don’t know that they are fish
Swimming through God.
Humans strive lifetime after lifetime,
Even a million or more,
To reach the truth that lies within
The wisdom of the Ash.
All material things, be it Guru’s body
Or the Ash of wisdom he conveys,
Eventually return to the eternal—
“Dust thou art, and to dust
Thou physical form shalt return.”
The Truth of the Guru’s Ash
Stands as a sentinel of the Divine
Like an urn full of water poured from the
Guru’s hand into the tranquil, celestial
Himalayan Lake Manasarovar,
Sending ripples of Love
To the shores of the Divine.
