A Request

Ooh my Lord, thank you for the cup of sorrows,

this is one which makes me remember you;

this is one which makes me a human being;

this is when I dont trample on other people;

this is when I can see,understand,empathize.

Ooh my lord, Dont give me your cup of joys;

Because thats when I do all the misdeeds,hurt people;

I even forget your omnipresence.

Ooh my god. thank you.

  4. neel3,
    Thanks for you comments.

    Some body,
    thanks but I am too old to fall for that trap!! I have insurance against such management wishes.

    I keep coming back to this post.
    I do hope I remember to practise it.

    Dukh mein sumiran sab kare
    Sukh mein kare na koi
    jo sukh mein sumiran kare
    dukh kaahe ko hoi—kabira–
