Master’s Tears


A disciple to the Master:Master and disciple

I love God, God is great

I must find Him, I just can’t wait.

Master said:

There is a diamond, hidden in your house

You will surely find it, If you sincerely browse.


Disciple thought:

Master knows it all, I must trust0_01850.jpg

I must do,  what he says, first.

A diamond In my house, surely I need

I must have done,  some noble deed.

Goddess Lakshami hiding in my house,

I must find

Lord Visnu , for sure, will follow behind.


He ran to the house, without wearing shoes

Like a drunken , loaded with booze.

On the way to the house

he stepped on a mouse

Sorry! But you will go to heaven

Still there is satava, in the morning at seven.

He stepped on  glass, but felt no pain

He was focused on diamond, and hefty gain.


Angry wifeThe wife was in the kitchen,

cutting vegetables

He told his wife,  holding on to safety cables.

Pointing with a knife

said the wife

Are you crazy, O lazy?

There is no diamond here

I clean everyday, everywhere.

Don’t waste time, go play ukulele

You might improve, if you practice daily.

Be realistic in life 

Forget the diamond

or you may loose your wife.


He said, the Master never lies

Man_Searching_There is no harm if he tries.

He searched here and there


He searched In drawers, in closets

and in cupboards

Don’t break them, said the wife

They were custom made in Hubbards.

He searched under the carpets, and  under the rugs

There was no diamond, but there were  dead bugs.


He became restless, he couldn’t sleep

Thinking of diamond, he would  weep.

He had only one thought, day and night

He saw diamond only, wherever went his sight.

crazymanresi.jpg~c200Every night

in his dream

Diamond, diamond

he would scream.

For days, he didn’t eat

no matter what the treat.

He didn’t bathe, or combed his hair

The wife left him, but he didn’t care.

Said the neighbours, he was gone mad

Trusting blindly was really really bad.


There was a damond for sure, that he knew

He trusted his Master, his words always came true.

Angel 2Though there was no proof

he still broke the roof.

He broke the walls, one by one

He didn’t stop, until he was done.

 Not one, but ten diamonds

fell from the last wall

Bright and beautiful, each bigger

than a tennis ball.

He felt proud, he found the diamond(s) at last

The News spread very very fast. 


Neighbours ran to the Mastertwo-dogs-running

There was a mad race

Just in case the Master

ran out of grace.

They didn’t care

if they stepped on a mouse

They wanted to know

if there was a diamond in their house.


The wife came back

O my dear

giraffe_coupleLet’s move forward 

and not look in the rear.

I love you, though you are silly

After all these years

you still can’t play  ukulele.

I left you, I did you good

Walls wouldn’t have come down

if here, I had stood.


pride-1Master was pleased. He felt relieved

Someone, with persistance, had achieved.

Finally, there was someone, who knew how to find

Who loved from the heart, and not from the mind

Surely, he will find God, he knows how

What a disciple, wow!


Disciple built a house, with hundred rooms

For future children, their brides and grooms.

He hung a big picture of the Master in a golden frame

He did  puja, with roses and camphor flame.


He sent a cheque to the Mastermailbox

with a note

Addressing Him in Capital Letters

He wrote:

Sorry, I have been busy

There is so much to do

Life could be so hertic

I had no clue.

With sincere appreciation

I send You this donation.

I miss You, I love You, I do Your puja every day

Please bless me, that my troubles stay away.

We have a son, named after You.

Please bless him. He is Yours too.

Thank you for Your Grace, for all  You have done

Thou are my Father, I am Thy son.

If You know of another diamond , please let me know

I will find it, I know how, I will show.


Master read the notesad-baby-face-photos-9

 Gave it another scan

Then threw the cheque and note

in the garbage can.

Looking at the sky

He wanted to cry

Why just Thy grace

And not Thee.


He felt tired, and very cold

The son had traded, Father for gold.God's Tears

He sent his blessings and his grace

There was sadness arising on his face

He didn’t want to weep

So he went to sleep

But he wept

Before he slept.   <3
