the match stick sage
the match stick
Well if you are an Indian by birth, yes you guessed him,
Saint though by birth, he let any issue just burn to ashes,
Dear friends, do not worry he is not an antagonist nor a proto,
Yet he plays a major role,
in each character of Hindu mythological world.
And is the sole cause of the
Sri Mahavishnu's dasavatara, shall say.
With a tanpura in his hand, singing hymns, prayers and other songs,
In the act of devotion to lord Vishnu, a sage wise yet mischievous,
Creating Vedic litterateurs, most clashes, between Vishnu and his devotees,
You all know his audacity to screw Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakasipu
The two loyal guards of lord lord Maha Vishnu.
He is said a great muni or rishi not for his penance alone,
but for the the benefit of man, as his name means.
'Nara' means man, and 'da' means benefit,
He spoke as gossip to create troubles at bad times,
But the end results being good.
In his eagerness to protect the righteous
And punishing the wicked,
A messenger who added a little
Of ghee to make matters worse.
His discussions are found in Chandogya upanishad and Pashcaratra literature.
To the lay men known only as the sage who created problems,
In words a match stick, which just requires a scratch,
Is a first order musician, well versed in all veda's and Upanishads
Of all the sama veda, the veda of music,
A student of the Sanaka, Sanandana, Sanatana, and Sanat Kumara
the four mind born sons of the great Brahma,
the first jounalist on earth,as bhagavat purana says,
is the son of of a maid, parentage a bramhin and a low caste lady,
who after the death of his mother went in search of absolute truth
worshiped lord vishnu until the day of his death,
was given the blessing though he would die shall be in the upanishads
