995. Give Me Heart Void Of Thoughts

Poem By Raman Savithiri

Amma, Give A Heart Void Of Thoughts!

I wait to have
A pure heart void of thoughts,
To sing your thousand sweet names,
But it is like waiting to bath in sea void of waves.

I wish to be obedient to you.
But my mind is not obedient to me.
I wish to bind it by your thousand powerful names.
Alas! Like an ugly fly, it slips and goes after trivial things.

I want to engrave your thousand names in my heart.
But, this body is embodiment of thoughts.
Is it ever possible to eliminate all thoughts,
Without the physical heart demolished too?

when an ordinary mortal like me shed tears after reading yr poem, Mahakali would have been ushered to you with such fervent calls; great poem again from yr golden pen
Only constant chanting Amma's names and meditation on Her mercy can divert our mind and focus our thoughts towards Her divine presence, as you have rightly said.
