Best Tahera Mannan Poems

+ Fav Poet


Patanjali sat with folded legs
Breathing deep and free of will
Timeless movements checked and hidden
Sound of water, no other thought
Arising from earth, water, fire, air and space
Senses stilled as the dream within
A secret place, a master desiring nothing
Soul in peace, a vow of purity
He sees eternity and far beyond
His soul undying, primeval
The jewels he carries within
The red ruby lights up the senses
The orange carnelian brings creativity
The amber radiates confidence and courage
The emerald is forgiving and kind
The sapphire brings forth the truth
The amethyst awakens intuition
The diamond connects the Holy One 
Come says Patanjali
Close your eyes and your mind
The very centre of your being
The jewels are hidden
Discover them thru meditation
Come says Patanjali
Make this life worth living...

Patanjali- founder of Yoga

Dedicated to all the wonderful people of my country.

    An excellent example of your contest. I looked at your contest again and saw that you wanted us to write one like this if we did yoga. I was curious if you would consider humorous ones or rhymed ones. I just had my first experience with yoga and it was rather humorous! Luv, Andrea

    just lovely Tahera, I am afraid my poem is a humorous one, not serious like this

    Beautiful, Tahera, I will try my best to write a poem to make you proud~~

    I can relate to this Pantanjali Yog and practiced it for a long time. Now following Baba Ramdeo, Tahera

    Tahera, this is a lovely poem. I took Yoga classs once and they focused more on "positions" of the body than on meditation. Both are needed for Yoga to be spiritually fulfilling. A fine example for your contest! Love, carolyn
