and Kush used to regularly play with animals and birds that frequented
the hermitage. On one occasion, a bird dies in the ashram (hermitage)
Lav, Kush, at their tender age, are in tears at the loss of their
beloved bird friend. Filled with grief and unable to comprehend
anything, they ask:Mother! Why is there death in this world?
Mother SITA seizes this opportunity to explain to her children the
Cycle of life and death.
|| The Toll of
The time will take its toll,
No one can escape it,
Even the Gods incarnate,
Have not been able to skip it.
The question that remains is,
Will your name die with you,
Or will it inspire many a heart,
For ages to come after you?
|| Momentary -Living
On the fathomless ocean,
Waves break up so very quickly.
In the cosmic infinite time,
Living creation is indeed momentary.
The only truth is the Almighty.
By keeping pure intentions,
And performing Dharma (duty)
Youll cross spiritual milestones.
|| Memories of
Good Deed ||
The end will come like lightning,
The curtain will fall.
People will stand a moment in silence,
And continue with life eternal
Whatsoever you amassed,
That you cannot take along,
Only the memories of your good deeds,
Shall forever linger on.
You belong to us, do you know that?
