Roses! I just love them so much...!!



O, my luve's like a red, red rose,
That's newly sprung in June.
O, my luve's like the melodie,
That's sweetly play'd in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonie lass,
So deep in luve am I,
And I will luve thee still, my Dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry.

Till a' the seas gang dry, my Dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun!
O I will luve thee still, my Dear,
While the sands o' life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only Luve,
And fare thee weel a while!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho' it were ten thousand mile!

- Robert Burns


मन उधाण वाऱ्याचे, गूज पावसाचे


मन उधाण वाऱ्याचे, गूज पावसाचे,

का होते बेभान कसे गहिवरते…

आकाशी स्वप्नांच्या हरपून भान शिरते,
हुरहूरत्या सांजेला कधी एकटेच झुरते..
सावरते बावरते घडते अडखळते का पडते,
कधी आशेच्या हिंदोळ्यावर मन हे वेडे झुलते…
मन तरंग होऊन पाण्यावरती फिरते..
अन क्षणात फिरुनी आभाळाला भिडते..
मन उधाण वाऱ्याचे गूज पावसाचे..
का होते बेभान कसे गहिवरते………… …..

रुणझुणते गुणगुणते कधी गुंतते हरवते,
कधी गहिऱ्या डोळ्यांच्या डोहात पार बुडते..
तळमळते सारखे बापडे नकळत का भरकटते..
कधी मोहाच्या चार क्षणांना मन हे वेडे भुलते..
जाणते तरी हे पुन्हा पुन्हा का चुकते..
भाबडे तरी भासांच्या मागून पळते..
मन उधाण वाऱ्याचे गूज पावसाचे..
का होते बेभान कसे गहिवरते…………

Is Your Love Strong Enough?


Just one step at a time
And closer to destiny
I knew at a glance
There'd always be a chance for me
With someone I could live for
There's nowhere I would rather be

Is your love strong enough?
Like a rock in the sea
Am I asking too much?
Is your love strong enough?

Just one beat of your heart
And stranger than fantasy
I knew from the start
It had to be the place for me
Someone that I would die for
There's no way I could ever leave

Is your love strong enough?
Like a rock in the sea
Am I asking too much?
Is your love strong enough?

A Hymn to Shiva

This is a translation of Swami Vivekananda’s Sanskrit hymn to Shiva, reproduced from his Complete Works 4: 501-04.

Salutation to Shiva! whose glory
Is immeasurable, who resembles sky
In clearness, to whom are attributed
The phenomena of all creation,
The preservation and dissolution
Of the universe! May the devotion,
The burning devotion of this my life
Attach itself to Him, to Shiva, who,
While being Lord of all, transcends Himself.

In whom Lordship is ever established,
Who causes annihilation of delusion,
Whose most surpassing love, made manifest,
Has crowned Him with a name above all names,
The name of "Mahadeva", the Great God!
Whose warm embrace, of Love personified,
Displays, within the heart, that all power
Is but a semblance and a passing show.

In which the tempest of the whole past blows,
Past Samskaras, stirring the energies
With violence, like water lashed to waves;
In which the dual consciousness of "I" and "Thou"
Plays on: I salute that mind unstable,
Centered in Shiva, the abode of calm!

Where the ideas of parent and produced,
Purified thoughts and endless varied forms,
Merge in the Real one; where the existence ends
Of such conceptions as "within", "without"--
The wind of modification being stilled--
That Hara I worship, the suppression
Of movements of the mind. Shiva I hail!

From whom all gloom and darkness have dispersed;
That radiant Light, white, beautiful
As bloom of lotus white is beautiful;
Whose laughter loud sheds knowledge luminous;
Who, by undivided meditation,
Is realized in the self-controlled heart:
May that Lordly Swan of the limpid lake
Of my mind, guard me, prostrate before Him!

Him, the Master-remover of evil,
Who wipes the dark stain of this Iron Age;
Whom Daksha's Daughter gave Her coveted hand;
Who, like the charming water-lily white,
Is beautiful; who is ready ever
To part with life for others' good, whose gaze
Is on the humble fixed; whose neck is blue
With the poison swallowed:
Him, we salute!

- Swami Vivekananda
