playtime

he takes a thrust with his sword
through and out through my heart
we hug, laugh and hug;
the blade
had pierced sheer void

i think the trick is to be a total void. 'nirgunan.' all colours pass through you. total innocence. i got the dimension of the thing reading Ramayana this karkitakam.

to be unaffected by the stabs and thrusts, one has to have the ability to stand aside and watch oneself...

P. Venugopal said...

just imagine you are dead. no longer have you any stake. what is the quality of that condition? you see everything with overwhelming love. there is no you, only the love in you and the whole exist. cosmic music.

Balachandran V said...

Dead? It is a void. Nothing, least of all love, exists there...

how come the blade cud pierce oly sheer void ??

P. Venugopal said...

extremity, you will understand this only much later in life. poise with the sword extended like a fencer. step light and quick ahead and thrust the sword straight through my heart. imagine your surprise when you find it going through resistenceless void. it will bring you to the ground. this is from the teachings of Buddha (as i understand it).
