Good Bye Dear Books! My Intimate Friends!

Good Bye! To you my Dear Books,
Good Bye to you my intimate friends;

To you, who have taught me alphabets to vast knowledge
I bid Good Bye! My dear Teachers!

To you, who have introduced me to languages, sciences and philosophies
And made me study and learn them, I bid Good Bye! My friends!

An animal I was, transformed by you into a human and humane being;
Dear Teachers and dearest ones, who caused in me
Awareness, scholarship and discrimination,
To you, I bid Good Bye!

I am here by the Grace of my Parents
And am brought up and have grown in the company of
Near and dear sharing love and affection with them,
And in your intimacy, I have matured and ripened;

In these final moments, when I am breathing my last
And am settling for eternal sleep
I bid Good Bye to you my dear books
I bid Good Bye, my intimate friends;

You are an ocean of meaningful and graceful words
And have put me on the throne of intellectual pleasure
And peaks of emotional fulfillment;
I do not believe in birth after death and cycle of rebirths;
You have transformed me into a Jeevan-Mukta,
I am liberated while I am alive, thank you!

Definitely I would not come back again to this planet
I will take eternal rest in complete Silence
I bid Good Bye to you who made me what I am
By making me enjoy literature, knowledge, Love, wisdom, spirituality and Tatvam!
Though I could not master them, I could taste them;

I merged in the Absolute in constant study of you and subsequent contemplation!
You helped me to transcend false ego and get absorbed in the True Reality
And made me a fulfilled person, thank you;
Definitely I would not come back again to this planet
I will take eternal rest in complete Silence
After getting dissolved in the five elements;

I joined night with day, seasons with years,
Years with decades in your beautiful and delightful company;
My Good Bye to you who made my mind and utterance wealthy and worthy
By commanding, dictating and guiding them;
I bid Good Bye to you, my friends who led me through my life;

By the reality, “jaatasya maranam dhruvam”, once born means one has to die,
After leaving this ephemeral body, I would not come back;
Good Bye to you my dear books!
Good bye to you my intimate friends!
