In Sound, In Silence .................
Truth that is

The sage searched for wisdom in solitude
I search in the multitudes ........
Of people, situations, relationships that surround

There is solace in the silence of the woods
Solace in the din of the kitchen

Krishna spoke of the highest wisdom in a battlefield
Of human emotions, of anger, jealousy and hatred

The same that the sage wrote in the woods

After all happiness is a state to be in
Live in

Also, karma yoga is superior to karma sanyaas. Thats another reason for being in the battlefield.

Trespasser :

Tresspasser you are not, you are most welcome. Yes indeed. Karma sanyaas is delusion.

Karma Sanyaas is not dropping of Karma or running away from it, but performing karma in the spirit of sanyas, which is the whole essence of the Bhagavad Gita.

Beautiful poem.
And it expresses the thought that I always subscribe to - of living (and not just writing or speaking of), the Highest Wisdom in the Battlefield, and not necessarily only in the peace and solitude of the forest.

Yes parvati I precisely subscribe to that. Have always felt that everything I have is a divine gift, then the Divine is here and now in every relationship and every situation.
