Poem By Bhaswat Chakraborty

It all begins with yourself
All love and all friendship
The unity beyond duality
And all meaningful relationship

Who are you without love?
With yourself be the kindest
Love yourself first so that
You love and appreciate the rest

Other limitless qualities – all noble ones
They all have their seed in love
Even for compassion and equal mind
Kind love is the key to serve

Only you can have love unbound
As you are yourself boundless
That is you – the one beyond duality
Love all and may God bless!

Comments about Love

true words, beautifully expressed...
it's true.. 'love begin with yourself'
Well said; the poem starts quite appropriately: 'Love, It all begins with yourself.'
All relationships are meaningful to those bound by the relationship and maybe a meaningless relationship only to an outsider. So we need not stress on 'meaningful relationship'. 'Relationship' is enough. Love has to be unconditional. Otherwise, love can be a bondage, a disappointing affair. Kind love actually means unconditional love. It can happen only in an unprejudiced heart. This is the point.
hehe.......well said and well penned

About seventy years ago
All said and done
There is now peace – peace aglow



I am a little petal of hue and smell
I am gorgeous you can tell


Of all human manifestations
May I say, you are the greatest
As you give milk, food and protection
What to say of love, peace and rest!
