U r still within us…

…. this post of mine is a tribute to Gandhiji, our respected BAPU. Whatever may be his political views but He is the father of the nation called India. But somewhere he is lost. Sometimes he makes his comeback through Munnabhai and circuit. Otherwise he is just a photo in the currency notes of India. Here is a hymn which was a favorite of Bapu. It’s called ” Vaishnava Janato… “. I’ve included it in of my photoshop creations which I’ve created in honor of Bapu.

The translation of the hymn goes as follows….

A godlike man is one,
Who feels another’s pain
Who shares another’s sorrow,
And pride does disdain.
Who regards himself as the lowliest of the low,
Speaks not a word of evil against any one
One who keeps himself steadfast in words, body and mind,
Blessed is the mother who gives birth to such a son.
Who looks upon everyone as his equal and has renounced lust,
And who honours women like he honours his mother
Whose tongue knows not the taste of falsehood till his last breath,
Nor covets another’s worldly goods.
He does not desire worldly things,
For he treads the path of renunciation
Ever on his lips is Rama’s holy name,
All places of pilgrimage are within him.
One who is not greedy and deceitful,
And has conquered lust and anger
Through such a man Saint Narsaiyon has a godly vision,
Generations to come, of such a man, will attain salvation….

This post proves nothing. But at least it can say ” Bapu, you are still within us…”
