Mother Nature (Poem)


The home of Mother Nature has no gods-idols-hero worshipers
In biotic-abiotic nature comprehend Supreme Spirit personified;

She’s ever visible, audible, edible, tactile, sexual...

Progenitor, boon to mortals, Dance of Life and Death, too;

Mother Nature embodies one language–Dharma–scripture–Law;

She is Primal Guru – Primal School, freely available to all.

(Translation of the original Marathi composition by the Author)

In this composition there is nothing new. Our forebears may have said this in different words at different times. There is no doubt this is in conscious – unconscious Indian mind, for millennia. Majority of us – the people from the Third World India and the Fourth World India diligently have been following the Way of Nature – Srishtiyog – for millennia; they help to maintain the natural balance. I bow before them.

Today is New Year Day of Gregorian calender.
We pray to Mother Nature, that she may give the leaders of the so-called advance countries gathered some time ago at Copenhagen to decide policy of “world climate change”, some sanity, to examine their lifestyle in the light of the majority people of the world, and if need be learn from them.
