Chamkan Tare

So many gods, so many creeds,
So many paths that wind and wind,
When just the art of being kind
Is all this sad world needs.

Sparkling Stars

In the dew drenched night
lit with sparkling stars
the lovers of oneness awake
while the world sleeps.

Lovers wake to breathe stars
for there is no life without;
but in most hearts elsewhere
beauty lies on its deathbed.

Wake! Let these stars in
Ignite the darkness of desires
Be a sparkling star yourself
Shiv, sing from within

Raag: Tilang

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

So many gods, so many creeds,
So many paths that wind and wind,
When just the art of being kind
Is all this sad world needs.

Shakespeare

Is she kind as she is fair?
For beauty lives with kindness.

Wordsworth

That best portion of a good man’s life,
His little, nameless, unremembered acts
Of kindness and of love.

Emily Dickinson

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain.
If I can ease one life from aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Into his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
