“How do I talk to YOU my God?
Do I visit your famous shrine, or bring YOU flowers special
Do I donate to YOUR shrine’s treasury, or earn some credentials
Do I call a big crowd, and sing YOUR praises to them
Do I travel to the places, which my religion says are YOUR realm
Do I make a temple in YOUR name, and have YOU all glittered in gold
Do I offer YOU jewels, and get YOU the most dazzling throne
Do I have to sit alone – eyes closed is it my Lord?
Do I follow the rituals as mentioned in our holy records
Will YOU understand through these actions, that I really love YOU so much
Will ever someone else pray to YOU with love such!“
Just while I thought, I had understood it all,
A roaring laughter I heard – it had me enthralled
“No need for any paraphernalia, no gold or flowers I want
No crowds or throne with jewels, all this is so wrong
A heart full of love, eyes with tears of joy
Hands folded? Oh it doesn’t matter, if sitting with me you enjoy
Whether you come in the morning or later in the day
Just make sure my child, you come with love, not fear!
Whether for a quick hello, or for hours you sit with me
Don’t come if someone makes you, just at your wish you be
And do you know my child, what will have me more impressed?
If you offer your helping hand to that someone in distress
Bring a smile on someone’s face and then you’ll see my child
How madly, deeply, crazily I’ll love you and make you mine”
“So go to the shrine if you want, do all that they say too
But only if you want it, not ‘coz they say ‘I told you to’!
I live in your heart, I also live in the other’s
So if you want to please me, don’t be for anyone a bother
Love and live my child, for love is the greatest of all
Only those who cause a pain, have misery on them befall“
With tears flowing endlessly, I listen to every word
“I will do as YOU say my Baba, what a beautiful message I’ve got
Whenever I want to meet YOU, I will try to look within
Your beautiful message my Baba, has left me with the biggest grin”!
