Have broken a coconut In front of Ganesha to Come flourishing in exams. Read theological comics, Debated who was powerful, Vishnu or Vinayaka? When the eye of reasoning opened, Discerned God is not many but one. With closed eyes, have knelt before the lord Praying for A.C.T.S, Until knees wore out, tears dried up Have concurred with random philosophies You are God! Realize and be quiet! Devour your soul, all will be clear If Kundalini is pierced, a beautiful thing will Blossom inside your skull: Subscribed to someone’s doctrine God, the universe all are fantasies Nothingness is the only reality Said Buddha, I stood stunned Who’s watching that void? Would he too disappear If the void ceases to be?
The basic forms of prayer are adoration, contrition, thanksgiving, and supplication, abbreviated as A.C.T.S.
