I got everything I desired,
A loving wife, an obedient child and a job I liked;
Yet there was something amiss,
An inexplicable strange emptiness in life.
I ran from pillar to post,
To find an answer to this strange bug;
I went to god men for a miracle,
But it was all humbug.
I meditated and prayed to God,
I chanted slokas in search of peace;
It gave only momentary relief,
But I continued to feel ill at ease.
Then a friend shared his experience,
Who had been through similar travail;
Till he met a Guru, a spiritual guide
Who put him on the right trail.
That’s how and when I got exposed to Mahatria,
And started following his thoughts and teaching
All very simple and straight
Yet with an effect that’s far reaching.
If his teachings and messages have such profundity even from such distance,
Such is his persona, such is his dignity
I envy those who meet him and have his Sakshatkar,
They are indeed blessed to an infinity!
His birthday is like Guru Purnima,
For his disciples and admirers alike;
Happy birthday the Great Mahatria,
Please continue to spread peace and light!
