In the name of God?


Walls with a strange graffiti
With the blood of innocents
Limbs strewn all around
Its not just playing spoilsport
Its plain savagery of the worst

What kind of madness is this?
To kill in the name of God!
Is to Kill God himself

Destruction is just that
Whatever be the goal
Spiritual or worldly

God does not require any pleasing
Nor propagation, nor protectors
On His behalf

If this is religion
Then let religion be damned!

Religion is just a means to unite
Not with anything outside
But deep within
To light a spark of Eternal Luminosity

Of wisdom
Of Love
That all that is
Is just me

An extension of me
Each is precious
As I am

Nothing ‘greater’ nothing ‘smaller’
In the world of the Infinite
The One Divine

Excellent post. I wish for the day when such messages are not necessary and every single global citizen feels and acts nonviolent and tolerant.

Dear Chutneypocorn, aatma, Padmasini:
Thank you. Glad you liked it. Really wish non-violence spreads first through thought, then shall peace follow.
