Tat Tvam Asi
by Rajender Krishan
Bookmark and Share
 

I have a Twin
     - Wanderer -   
reveling in absolute freedom
moment by moment
painless of the dead yesterday   
carefree of the unborn tomorrow
unaffected by laws
merrily being
with a singular belief
Transient Must Pass

When I ponder
in comparison
I enviously ask
why I'm not like
the Wanderer

I hear my Twin’s echo

Look beyond
the dichotomy of life
Tat Tvam Asi *

Literally = Thou Art That

Comment 29 October 2012
TO: Mr. Rajender Krishan
Somehow I link your poem with a sloka of Upanishad. Pardon me if I'm inconsistent -

"Asato ma satgamayo / Tamaso ma jyotirgamaya / Mrityoramritam gamayo"

(=Lead me from Untruth to Truth / From Darkness to Illumination / From Death to Immortality)

Comment As simple as being oneself as a whole and one with it. Enlightening.

Comment Your poems are wonderful. I understand them when you do not use Indian (sanscrit, hindi?) expressions. Though I sometimes guess the meaning of them, but this time "Tat Tvan Asi" needs your translation.
It is absolutely shocking that for you and for most of educated Indians more than one language may be considered to be your mother tongue. My congratulations!

Comment A great philosophy pleasingly simplified! I recall my poem, 'You and I'.

Comment dichotomy of existence---revealed poetically! The blending of Sanskrit philosophical line with English recalls Eliot in his most expansive mood. Superb!
