Entertainment and Enlightenment!
by Dr. Varanasi Ramabrahmam
Bookmark and Share
  Entertainment cannot provide enlightenment
Just as "water" in mirage cannot quench our thirst
Entertainment makes us slaves to our mind
Enlightenment helps master our mind
Entertainment leads craving forever
Enlightenment leads to tranquility
Entertainment is human
Enlightenment is manly

Entertainment that leads to enlightenment is best
Though lesser entertainment amuses
Cannot liberate us from our "self"
We need enlightenment to
Enjoy entertainment fully

We need enlightenment
Not to get submerged in entertainment
And neglect our duty
Both entertainment and enlightenment
Are needed for fuller life
Not denying anything to ourselves
And also for transcending our "selves"
