Life is …

Life is …

Life is a journey,
Towards the infinite turned inward
Life is a mystery,
Resolved forever, realizing the Divine.

Life is a song,
‘Tis sung in the infinite musical notes
Life is a blessing,
Surrendered at the Lotus Feet of the Divine.(1)

Life is a lesson,
Turned into wisdom by the righteous deeds
Life is an emerged wave,
Merged back into the immortal ocean of bliss. (2)

– by Sridhar

(1) A Divine Master like AMMA
(2) Dissolving one’s self in the Supreme Self through meditation, keerthana etc …  i.e., AMMA
