This poem is dedicated to my spiritual master H. H. Sri Sri Ravishankar ji. I am eternally grateful to him for bringing me closer to the divine by bringing me on the spiritual path. He transformed me!
O Master! With thy grace and brilliance
This life has been illuminated.
Pulling me out of this life of convenience
And now lost in divine, I am so intoxicated.
All along I had been living in delusion
You awakened my heart to the love and light
And disentangled me from my self-illusion
Rescuing me from the web of hatred and spite.
O Master! Thy secrets of love and detachment
Irradiated me with a steady glow of happiness
Freeing me from the worldly entrapments
And the unreal phantoms of distress.
Igniting the spark of knowledge and wisdom
You led me from the material to the divine.
And now I blissfully dance in the new-found freedom
Basked in the glory of that celestial shine!
