Thought

Pitiable one forsaking duty

Or recluse attached to world

Work’s joy in action’s beauty

Hermit’s life disentangled



Pitiable one forgoing penance

Developing tastes for luxury

Or those harbouring grievance

Against imaginary enemy


Pitiable in every respect is he

Who heartless others harm

Who cherishes his own body

And fails to find inward calm


Pity not for glorious life gone

But for those living suffering

Who gave not their all for one

Radiating a constant blessing


(Adapted from Tulsidas's Ramcharitmanas)


Prayer

O Lord of constant blessing grace extinguish my desires that only one may remain for Thee. Grant that I may find the joy of service and in movement as well as those timeless encounters in my soul. May all be happy, peaceful and blissful in and through Thee.
