Bhagawan Gautama Buddha
by Dr. Padmapriya S

Lord Gautama Buddha,
Son of King Shuddhodhana,
Son of Queen Mahamaya,
Spouse of Yashodhara,
Father of Rahula.
 
Born in royalty,
He abnegated everything,
Without a trace of anxiety.
 
He saw something in four signs:
A sick man, an old man,
A dead man, a monk!
He understood that in forced authority,
Peace does not reign!
 
He left every worldly pleasure,
Practised severe austerities,
He realised that happiness is not,
In pleasures’ intricacies,
Or in excess austerities.  
 
Under the Peepal tree,
Sat he for days seven,
Attaining enlightenment.
 
He said,
‘Love all with compassion,
Compassion is the greatest religion,
Do not accept everything even what I say,
Without reason.'
 
The Buddha taught
Truths major four,
Sufferings, desires,
Desires lead to sufferings,
Give up desires,
Give up sufferings,
Follow eightfold path.
 
The Buddha preached The Dharma,
The path of righteousness,
The law of cause and effect,
He had faith in the principle of Karma.
 
Many sutras to guide us,
The Sutra Pitaka,
The Vinaya Pitaka,
The Abidharma.
 
The Buddha was a model teacher,
A kind-hearted noble speaker,
To him, God was formless and nameless,
Omnipotent and omnipresent,
The Buddha loved all people,
From all religions, regions, castes,
Nations, genders, colours!
 
Long live the Buddha,
I bow my head before him,
And to one, who gave him life,
His mother, Queen Mahamaya.
