Here we are at the Millis Ashram after just playing kirtan in Gurdwara. Jap Preet was very good at sitting up there with us during the whole program! We loved being there with the Sangat! Thank you Baba Siri Chand Ashram, thank you Kundalini Yoga Boston, and thank you Shunyam Productions for being so loving and supportive during our time in the Boston area.
Here is a quote by Yogi Bhajan that inspired the following poem, "Time to Listen".
"Prayer is when you talk to God, Meditation is when God talks to you." Yogi Bhajan
Time to Listen
I am holding in my hand
The flower you gave me
So many years ago.
You whisper and think I don't hear you.
I am that close.
I know what you have been saying
All these years.
You placed that flower at my feet.
Now that you realize
Your mind has been talking
It is time to listen.
THE MEANING OF PRAYER
Oh, let me be a horse!
So I can carry the Master wherever he wants to go
His will is mine
No objections, only trust
Slowly learning the meaning of prayer
Oh, let me be a prayerflag!
Carrying the message of the Masters written on an empty surface
moving the hearts of people just as the prayerflag moves mine
Gently catching the wind
Understanding the meaning of prayer
Or let me be a kitten…
Snuggling up in the Master’s lap
Cosy, confident, comfortable
Enjoying the meaning of prayer
And thank you, Snatam, for all the beautiful music you share. It is such a good companion on the Path!
