Amritsar

I found my seat today,
Today I found my seat
Across the water from the temple, the temple of burnished gold;
I sat across the water from the Golden Temple of Amritsar.

I found my seat on hard cold marble
And took my seat on that stone floor,
Legs crossed, eyes closed, breath soft and slow
And not a worry stirred me as I sat with my eyes closed.

The Gurus had called me across this holy water,
Across this holy water I heard the Gurus' call:
Sit my brother, sit quietly, and let your spirit flow,
Let your spirit flow in this holy place of prayer.

Cross-legged and eyes closed
I let their call run through me,
Through me ran their call and peace was mine to see;
Through eyes closed shut yet I could see this holy peace run through me.

For half an hour I sat there,
I sat cross-legged for one hour halved
And not one movement did I make,
Moved not one foot or finger.

Peace was mine to be there,
To be there was all peace of mind
And when I stood when day was shot the night softly descended
And my prayers had all been answered.

Comments on this Poem

Comment The Lord's blessings on both you Kulbir and you Kumarendra Mallick. This experience in Amritsar was truly inspiring and long fought for after three years of grieving and a difficult search for solace. Nothing happens by accident and I believe it was part of the path God has placed at my feet.

Comment The prayer was serene, the heart peaceful and the mind still - that is gift of the Guru! May your journey henceforth have ripples of divinity.
