(Dedicated to universal peaceful co-existence – Deepak Sarkar, www.kolki.com)
Humans always wondered about the world around
The sky above, the oceans, beings underground!
But most of their simple queries remained unanswered
Despite vast knowledge, academic and corporate, gathered!
Discussions among colleagues, friends, networking with peers
Eventually led them to have faith in a God of fear!
I had seen people being initiated!
As friends, colleagues, baptised in faiths inherited
Watched helplessly as many turn inwardly limited
Kept myself away un-baptised, un-initiated!
Realization comes with vision unlimited
Recognizing Initiation happens throughout life so many ways
Rebuilding faith in learning as an evolutionary process
Observing parents, siblings, family, friends, in neighbourly village
Watching plants, animals, birds, insects and fishes
Feeling seasons with transitory sun, moon, stars and planets!
Message of dawn bombarding earth each day
Irrespective of Baptism by Gurus or Priests in temples and churches
To help us ascend over limitations embracing universal acceptance!
