O Mother!

Why is there so much hatred against you,
When you are the symbol of love?

Why is there bloodshed on your sacred land,
When your land has always nourished
the soul of the world?

You have brave sons and daughters,
Who died that night so I could sleep in peace...
I salute them today, O Mother...
I salute them...a thousand times!

My tears that fall incessantly,
Are for your plight, as I watch those who have betrayed you.
O Mother, today, the custodians of your well being,
The rulers who rule in your name,
Have forsaken their pledge
To serve you and only you.

Today I watch the saffron, white, and green
The blue wheel of time,
as it flutters above the carnage
Crying for help...

Waiting for your sons and daughters
To fight for truth and your name!

Maa Tujhe Salaam...Vande Mataram...!

In Gratitude

23rd November, 2008: A heartfelt prayer on the birthday of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba...

"Make me a channel of your peace,
Where there is hatred let me show your love,
Where there is injury your pardon Lord,
And where there's doubt, true faith in you...
True faith in You..."

Thank you for being my guiding light. For your shower of blessings, for your promise of eternal happiness, here and now. Dear Sathya Sai, a heart full of gratitude for, and always.
