About Mirror of My Self

Self is God. Self is Guru. Self is Everything.

This blessed mirror reflects nothing but the Self of my Beloved Brother, my Highest Gurudeva and my Spiritual Father. Whatever you see, read and experience in this blog are only from Him, through me, for you, my dear visitor.

This slave is taking immense pleasure in welcoming you to experience my Self in all its glories!

A smile of His own

"As a child, this slave smiled, a smile of his own.
As he grew, the world did ruin, the smile that was his own,
and made him feign a smile, that was truly worn."
So thought the slave in forlorn.

Knowing that his smile is a fake,
laughing as if there is nothing at stake...
His Merciful Master decided to awake, the sleeping snake!
And gave a huge blow...'O this slave couldn't take!'

"Not the world but you, who ruin, the smile of your own"
Said the Master, whose sole work is to shatter!

When the words first appeared,
even the faintest smile he had disappeared,
and, on his face, tears smeared...
In utter anger, cried the slave, "O Master, that's weird!"

But, as the Master's words seeped in,
and mercilessly exploded within...
an uproarious laughter did begin!
In utter joy, cried the slave, "Dear Master, You always win!"

Now, and forever...
The remains of that havoc will just remain,
as a smile of His own, O what a gain!
