Non-Violence Is The Foremost Religion

Mohan Das Karam Chand Gandhi known as Mahatma Gandhi was born on 02 October 1869 in Porbandar, Gujarat India. He died on 30 January 1948 after accomplishing the struggle for India’s independence. Indian philosopher, writer, thinker and internationally esteemed for his doctrine of non-violence. Gandhiji was a great politician and spiritual leader of India.

Gandhiji said:

  • “Ahimsa (non-violence) is the highest duty. Even if we cannot practice it in full. We must try to understand its spirit and refrain as far as humanly possible from violence.”
  • “Hatred ever kills, love never dies; such is the vast difference between the two.”
  • “Hate the sin and not the sinner”.
  • “Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”
  • “Truth is the breath of my life. The only virtue I want to claim is Truth and Non-violence. I lay no claim to super human powers. I want none.”
  • “Humanity is the key to success.”
  • “You may never know what results come of your action, but if you do nothing there will be no result.”
  • “An eye for an eye will make the whole world blind.”
  • “I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings. My wisdom flows from the Highest Source. I salute that Source in you. Let us work together for Unity, Love and Peace.”
  • “Be the change you want to see in the world.”

(Remembering a great teacher)

30 January

 

30 January 1948

Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi was short dead by an angry violent man Nathu Ram Godsey who unfortunately did not want to breathe under the free sky; he opposed Gandhi ji’s non-violence doctrine to win back India’s independence from Britishers who ruled over India for about two centuries and enslaved India and its people’s mentality.

Gandhi ji said : “An eye for an eye will make the whole world blind.”

Colours of Autumn as seen through my window:
 
.Coulours of Autumn
 
 I am grateful to the golden leaves
 
they wrote their message on the branches
 
decorated the bare trees with yellow- saffron
 
red, brown, crimson and golden leaves.
 
I see them through my window
 
falling slowly and waving good-bye.
 
Waving in promise to come back
 
in the spring and will bloom again
 
will bring greenery for every eye.

Star-studded Scarf

 

The sky is fully dotted
with tiny shinny stars
Star-studded scarf is mine.
Gazing at the stars
slowly and slowly
stars land into my eyes
the dew-drops glide down quietly.
I see the stars with my shut eyes.
I stay still in meditation.
And tears majestically
roll down on to my cheeks.
Some thing has no beginning
and some reality has no ending.
I pull the star-studded scarf onto me
and cover my entire body.
The lights illuminate each and every
tiny body-hair on my body
and my body becomes radiating.
I don’t know where to take this light.
My feet still walk in the darkness.

  

…And The Flight Dies In The Wings

 
At the seashore
the scarlet rays of the setting  sun
slowly dipping down into the water
touch the shimmering waves.
 
The oil keeps on gushing
spilling and contaminating
the vast waters of the ocean
the cool breeze used to pass
through my hair gently
now it smears my hair
with the smoky oliy mist.
 
In the fading oily sun light 
the silhouette of the flying birds
with black and thick feathers
with dangling fligt trying to fly
and the flight dies in the wings.
Along with the shore, sea-shells,
driftwood, pebbles and oil blobs
birds are stuck there
their feet their feathers
all stuck in the oily mud
their tiny soft feathers
pushing in vain get heavy
with the sluggish waves,
the waters became black
the air is thick with
the smell of the oil.
The birds try and try to fly
but get planted there forever
cannot breathe cannot eat.
Countless thousands are dead
countless will be dead soon.
 
I fear what would become
to my feet walking along
the shore on the oily sands
if I dip my feet
in the sea water at the shore!
What would become
the bone white sea -shells,
honey drift wood,
multi-colored pebbles,
the golden sand,
my bare henna-colored feet  
my footprints?
Life is dying
and the flight dies in the wings!
