Ananda - The Boundless Bliss

Ananda! Indescribable delight!
Flowing like a river
Into the terrain of pure bliss,
Unending pleasure,
Undying happiness,
Unbelievable state of joy!  

Greater than a kingdom on earth,
Happier than a seat in heaven,
Cooler than a twilight moon,
Sweeter than any sweet nectar,
Cosier than a lover’s embrace,
Is Ananda! The undefinable mirth!  

Ananda! Boundless bliss,
Beyond doubts and disturbances,
Above all confusions and connivance
There are no questions to be asked
Nor any queries to be answered
There is only the illumination of infinite joy.

To let go of all material wealth,
To push out all desires,
To chuck out the ego,
To let lose oneself in divinity,
By embracing love - pure love,
Only then, can you find Ananda!  

To pursue only the path of devotion
To serve with selfless motives
To open up to the will of God
To realise the oneness of creation
Through sympathy and empathy,
Only then, can you find Ananda!  

When devotion is steady and intense,
The devotee gains knowledge,
Knowledge of unity of existence,
Knowledge of Oneness or togetherness
The unity of consciousness
Of Self in all beings and all in the Self.

The mystic wanders - as a subject
Seeking his God - the Object
As the mystic embraces love
And the love ripens like a juicy fruit
The duality ceases - no subject or object
Only Ananda of love supreme!

The bond of love
The lover and his beloved
Get absorbed in love, so intense
There is no lover now
Nor any beloved
There is only love!  

Ananda! The unity of the triad,
The knower,
The knowing and
The known!
The three are not three entities
But just one unit of love!  

Ananda cannot be measured with a tape,
Ananda cannot be tasted like a delicacy
Ananda cannot be acquired like a property,
Ananda cannot be inherited from the forefathers
It has to be earned with infinite love
It has to be experienced by the silent inner being!

Comment Creative writer always acts & reacts upon writing.You write very emotionally and heart touching poetry.Why have you stopped writing
poetry with spiritual touch? Very few writers adapt
their views on these serious subjects.I cordially
request you to write some more poems for
"Bahujan hitay, Swant sukhay".I liked your poems
too much.I think,you review on it. A lot of thanks.
Thank you very much.
