…To the Cosmic Source, I did call out,
Wanted to know what life was all about…
…Why was there suffering and so much chaos?
The waves on the ocean,
Why did they with fury toss…?
…Why did man kill, maim and wound,
Creating an island,
Isolated and marooned?
Yet in Nature,
The worm turned into a butterfly,
From where it had been cocooned…
…Why did man frown when faced with loss or no gain,
While other children of Mother Nature,
Stoically bore all pain?
…Why did man want more and more,
While all else in Nature never did hoard and store?
…Why with man it’s always give and take,
Take more than give?
A sorry way to live,
While in Nature it’s give, give and give;
Live and let live…
…Why does man of avarice, desire, jealousy,
And anger not rise above?
And learn from Mother Nature about,
… Why did man grab, hoard, build walls,
And many a boundary,
While in Nature all lived in peace and harmony…?
…When would man learn that Nature provides,
Enough to meet his needs,
But problems arise due to his insatiable greed…?
…Seeing man’s actions create an imbalance,
Steeped as he was in darkness of ignorance,
The Lord decided to grace Mother Earth,
With His divine birth,
…Clad gracefully in a flaming orange robe,
With a thick dark halo of hair…
Oh! And petal soft Lotus Feet,
Most wondrous a pair…
Ceaselessly, He reaches out to one and all,
With Tender Loving Care…
… His love, His grace is limitless,
It’s there for the tiny ant,
The mighty elephant,
Plants and trees,
The deadly shark, the pretty birds,
The sky and the breeze,
The soil and the sea,
Everything celestial and earthly,
Caressing lightly, enveloping wholly,
Especially so indeed…
…For you and for me…
Let us pray,
To the One Whose name,
Resounds in every heartbeat,
To Beloved Mother Sai,
The One with petal soft Lotus Feet,
Of Consciousness, Mercy, Consideration and Compassion…
May Compassion enter the soul of all Earth Beings,
So they earn the title Human,
Behaving in a manner,
Behoving of Human Beings,
May Compassion be born in the hearts of all Terrorists,
So they become Humanists,
May Humans too,
Their lives with,
Ceaseless Compassion align,
So they then arrive at being Eternal and Divine,
Samastha Lokaah Sukhino Bhavantu,
Peace for all beings the Universe through…
