A disciple to the Master:
I love God, God is great
I must find Him, I just can’t wait.
There is a diamond, hidden in your house
You will surely find it, If you sincerely browse.
Master knows it all, I must trust
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.
The wife was in the kitchen,
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
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.
in his dream
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.
Though 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 Master
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
Let’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.
Master 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 Master
with a note
Addressing Him in Capital Letters
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 note
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.
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
