English version by Ravindra K Kapoor.

Madan Dahan- Hindi name

Part 04

The Glory of 2nd Age (Treta Yug)

The youthful prime period of Satyug,
Was at the verge of fading by now,
And the force of delusion had entered,
On the lovely Earth of Gods.

In such golden age of Gods,
Only Shiv* the God of destruction,
Was lost in deep contemplation,
To acquire the power of destruction.

To destroy delusion's opulence,
By the power of soul's force,
Created by the sacrifice of self,
And sufferings of the senses.

    Thanks Andrea. My father wanted these to be published during his life time but due to many reasons, he could not do so. Some of his creative works are worth becoming a pride possession of the world literature. If I can bring them in the limelight of the world, after making few changes & editing, it would be an achievement for me. Such things give the real inner joy for which we all are here.

    and it seems to me, we are still right there, trying to "destroy delusions opulence, by the power of the soul's force," or enlightenment, perhaps. Enjoyed. hugs, Catie :)

    You are right Catie. The Power of soul becomes a force only when enlightenment comes and enlightenment comes, when one finds the light from one's soul....Ravindra
