A Prayer for myself

 

How can this mind of mine

so full of worldly delights

taste divine bliss

of thy name?

Neither had I left everything

nor had I followed thou-

how can I taste divine bliss

of thy name?

Let this mind be a lotus leaf

shaking off the last droplet of worldliness

and taste the divine bliss

of thy name.

May this mind of mine

only seek holy company, solitude and thou-

just to taste the divine bliss

of thy name.

O my mind

be restless and be intoxicated

with the divine bliss

of His name.

  1. Rejecting materialism and embracing spirituality is the connection to the Divine but as you said fighting off the delights when being exposed daily through media and social interactions makes it almost impossible for most, especially younger folk. Prayer…that is what’s needed to change this all around. Thought provoking poem

Thank You :)
