The object of our reverence and respect
keeps on changing. It goes on
vacillating between petty selfishness
and the noble heartedness.
We crave for petty material pursuits
and also “cry” for justice!
We fight for mean gains and we “long”
We preach nonviolence and we
prostrate in front of hooligans.
We profess against child labor and we
deny productive education to billions.
We worship saints and simplicity and
we adore glamour, glitter and
We say health is wealth and the
“healthy” ones do not manifest healthy
feelings, thoughts, perspectives, plans,
policies and actions and keep
perpetually exploiting and chasing “D
grade” crude pleasures!
We call ourselves spiritual and stoop in
front material power and escape from
We promote ourselves as health care
providers; but we ourselves are victims
of the disease of meanness! We are
blind to enlightenment, paralyzed to
support justice, moribund to rise
against injustice, deaf and dumb to
assert our innate selfless wisdom!
We have to keep on acquiring and
manifesting healthy feelings, thoughts,
perspectives, plans, policies and actions
and ride over the conflicts; even as they
would continue to erupt and bother us!
The traditional measure to be taken by
billions of people from different
backgrounds; is NAMASMARAN.
