Two Poems by Nileen Putatunda


Non-Stop 

 

On my way to Belur Math, 

The buses will stop 

At different points; 

May my Guru-mantra japa 

Be non-stop.

Thakur, 

More than three kalpas ago, 

Before the Big Bang, 

You had decided to dance here 

Starting AD 1855, 

And create the sweetest universe possible, 

One that will never end, 

Only sweeten. 

 

 

(with gratitude to Shyamal Dasgupta, Swami Atmajnananda, Swami Atmajnanananda)
