From The Form To The Formless

My cosmic journey commenced
With a vehement restlessness,
Such as an astronaut experiences
In a spacecraft after ignition,
Presaging an obscure shape
Eventually attaining a distinct form.

My spiritual vision ushered with this very form:
My Smiling Buddha - emanating radiance;

I saw the Light of the Universe
Converging into this form,
Like a thousand floodlights
Illuminating a stadium.

I embraced this form,
Loved it with focal intensity,
Merged into its soul,
And felt it respiring at my core.

Eventually its contours diffused
Into phenomenal spectral beams,
And then emerged - the Formless.

I saw the Light of the Universe
Diverging from the Formless,
Like a spinning disc of blazing fire.

Inspired by the following song from the movie - Yuvvraaj:

'Tu muskura jahan bhi hai tu muskura,
Tu dhoop ki tarah badan ko chhoo zara,
Sharir si yeh muskurahatein teri,
Badan mein sunti hu mein aahatein teri,
Labon se aake chhoo de apne lab zara,
Tu muskura jahan bhi hai tu muskura,
Sharir si yeh muskurahatein teri,
Badan mein sunti hu mein aahatein teri…

Aisa hota hai khayalon mein aksar,
Tujhko sochu to mehek jaati hu,
Meri rooh mein basi hai teri khushbu,
Tujhko chhoo lu to behek jaati hu,
Teri aankhon mein, teri aankhon mein,
Koi to jadoo hai, tu muskura,
Jahan bhi hai tu muskura….

Tez chalti hai hawaon ki saasein,
Mujhko baahon mein lapet ke chhupa le,
Teri aankhon ki haseen nooriyon mein,
Main badan ko bichhau, tu sula le,
Teri aankhon mein, teri aankhon mein,
Koi to nasha hai, tu muskura,
Jahan bhi hai tu muskura….'.
