Ahimsa 6 - Abhaya Or Fearlessness
Poem By Dr. Geeta Radhakrishna Menon
Fear or ‘Bhaya'
Frightful mental condition of
Facts unknown erupting into
Fearful reactions of
Falling into a trap of ignorance!
Effusive fear gushing
Eliminating all reasons,
Embittered by illusions,
Enveloped in emotional predictions,
A complicated, yet, a common emotion,
Admitting and causing a commotion,
Anxiety and worry,
Anguish and woe,
Anger that causes
Agony without any pauses!
Rising from a state of ‘Bhaya' or Fear,
Reaching a state of ‘Abhaya' or Fearlessness
Requires tremendous mental strength,
Recurring will power,
Ahimsa can be practised only by
Awareness of the eternal spirit,
Acquitting all intimidations
Admitting only unshrinking dauntlessness!
Song Celestial ‘Bhagavad Geeta' pours
Soothing words of wisdom;
Soul is indestructible,
Soul is imperishable,
Soul is immortal - Then why?
Sentimental of the trembling fear!
