Nothing but One

Penned this poem during the week long silence program in Ashram. Do share it if you like it.

Nothing but One

Millions of different flowers but only one soil,
Different clouds passing by in One vast sky,
The differences too many when the mind is in turmoil,
All become one when the answer comes to Who am I !!

Emotions, feelings are just travellers,
If dispassion is the Owner, the mind is away from all growels,
The passion to find the source is only worthwhile,
The grace of the master only takes you an extra mile

Doubts, insecurity are just a tiny thorn of a fragrant Rose ,
They evaporate when you come back to the source ,
The colors may be many but the light is Only One,
The sky is clear when one sees only the Shining Sun.



1. Acknowledging that one knows very little :

Many people think they know, without knowing or they get stuck in their limited knowledge. So they never learn. So the first thing is to acknowledge that one knows very little.


2. Willingness to know :

Many people acknowledge that they do not know, but they are not ready to learn.


3. Being non-judgmental and open-minded :

Some people would like to learn but their judgmental attitude and close-mindedness does not allow them to learn.


4. Total commitment and one-pointedness to the path one has chosen :

Some people are open-minded but lack commitment and one-pointedness. They keep shopping here and there and never progress.


5. Always putting truth and service before pleasure :

Sometimes even committed and one-pointed people stay away from the path in pursuit of momentary pleasures.


6. Patience and perseverance :

Some people are not swayed by pleasures and are committed and one-pointed, but if they lack patience and perseverance, they become restless and dejected.

The life, utopian times and funny explorations.
