THE TRAVELS OF JIVA

THE TRAVELS OF JIVA


There once was a tiny anti-material particle

Not reported in any regular news article

Jiva was the name of this glowing entity

Who somewhat lost purpose and identity


In its wanderlust it really liked to move

Feeling as though life would then improve

Yes, Jiva was up for travel far and wide

A wish that absolutely could not be denied


The search was on with the gift to freely fly

It looked about for directions in the sky

The Moon, Sun, Saturn, and Mars

Heavenly bodies including the stars


Discontented there, Jiva pondered the deep blue sea

And took the dive to the lowest degree

Made some peers, but defied predators

It felt too oppressed with all the competitors


It was time now to see what Earth could offer

Would life there be gentler and softer?

"I think not," concluded Jiva, losing hope

The pattern appeared a downward slope


Poor Jiva was running out of places

Weary of bearing all too many faces

Weary of wearing fur, feathers, and scales,

Bodies of skin, fin, and long or short tails


Jiva thought hard on the current situation

Perhaps pleasure is a dream's anticipation

The place of origin was the actual paradise

Convinced of home, Jiva u-turned and thought not twice


– By Bhaktimarga Swami




ARRIVAL IN MONTREAL.
