About This Poem

Yoga in Poem - A novel Approach 01 of Many


Yoga in Poem - A novel attempt 01/ Many YOGA is a priceless gift given by great ancient Indian saints for every human being through Vedas. I am trying to bring one step each week before all my known and unknown friends of Poetry Soup and for other viewers for a glimpse of this treasure of India, which in fact is a gift of Good Health for the entire humanity. Ravindra Meditation Step 01 Meditation remains The essence of healthy living And the most precious Gift given to humans By the Almighty God. We think and think And puzzle our mind With ideas and emotions With worries and Irrelevant thoughts. This goes on in our minds Ever since we find that We have grown-up To know and understand And to behave with The world. But unfortunately From that very time We unknowingly start Worrying also and Sometimes Not only during daytime But even When we are in sleep. This never ending Row of worries and worries only Sometimes for reasons And often without a season Have become a habit To lament On what we have and More on, What we do not have. This constant Lamentation and pondering Brings and form shape A Free Gift for all of us In the form of slow poisoning Which we inhale and drink Every day and every moment When we breathe and talk When we love or walk When we behave and misbehave When we are in a haste and Even when We lie on a cot Or when we fight Without a cause. This constant thinking and Worrying Slowly destroy everything Good and great in our heart Given by the Almighty God. But meditation and Yoga Can restore What we often unknowingly Just throw away By our day and night worrying Which continues When we go to sleep or Are busy in accomplishing our tasks. Meditation and Yoga Can restore What we often unknowingly Have lost By our worries While sleeping and even while Accomplishing our tasks With a gift of better and healthy life. Ravindra Kanpur India 4rd /6th July 2013 To be continued …… NOTE: The series which I am starting today is also a gift for all American friends on their Great of Independence 4th July. My Greetings for all of you. With best wishes…Ravindra

    Thank you! I think you are describing what's called by some as the 'monkey mind' endlessly chattering! I do yoga breathing before sleep every night, it helps a lot!

    Thanks Debbie. I know you do Meditation and have even tried Yoga also but I am not aware if you are doing it still or not? Since each and every posture is not meant for every Yoga doers & their suitability differs from person to person, hence one should practice only those which suit you according to your health & health problems. Hope you would find some of these to be added highly beneficial.

    ok, I will be reading your steps. I don't think I have the mindset to ever sit and just calm my mind. If you can show me a step that I would actually be able to follow, I could give it a try!

    Thanks my friend for your kind comments. The best benefit which you are going to have would be in the form of sound sleep. I was about to write my comments on your poem, when there was some internet problem yesterday. I will make it today. Ravindra
