Jai Ganesh Deva

Ganpati Bappa Maurya!
Lord Ganesha you lead 
Our beginnings,
Make our path
Obstacle-free,
Your names are thousand,
Ekdant, Aniket
Vignesh or Vinayak,
You love laadoo and modak
And ride the mushak,
We bow unto you and seek
Protection and good luck.

You are our beloved,
Our most worshipped,
To you we belong,
Bless us to choose
Right over wrong.

Make our Vivek-buddhi
Sharp and strong,
As every step we take,
Our path problem-free
We pray you make.

Grant us a future bright,
On our destiny
'Shubh' and 'Mangal'
Please do write.

Please protect us,
Be by our side,
Bestow us success
In every stride.
Shower us
With prosperity,
Joy and delight.


In our heart and soul
Your Murat and bhakti
We forever enshrine,
As we sing Aarti,
Grant us blessings
And your Darshan Divine.
The image/idol represents symbols and helps retain the ancient wisdom in public memory down the ages

Kanhaa Poem

The  Kanhaa Poem: 1 
By Amita J Sanghavi.
19/8/2022.

Krishna, krishna!

Heading straight

To the Haveli,

We stop at the phoolwala

And his tokri,

Our steps halt

As we bend,

Flowers to the soul,

Bliss lend:

The moment

Of spotting fresh blooms,

Mogra and Prajakta,

Bringing a bright glow

On our face and our heart,

We bend to touch the petals,

And the softness

In the Marigold garlands,

How we love to hold!

And now hurry to visit

Krishna in the temple,

Inhaling incense,

Lotus scented agarbatti

Lighting lamps for real,

Chanting aarti in chorus,

As we drape blooms

Around His neck,

And join our hands,

Overwhelmed

With real Darshan

In our 'ami'-filled eyes,

As our blue Kanhaa

We behold,

The maakhan chor,

And His mesmerising,

Mischievous muskaan

Forever heart-held,

Come let’s celebrate,

The birth of

Our Divine consciousness

On Krishna we focus,

Govind Hari, Gopal Hari,

We chant in chorus,

His feet,

The ultimate Sharan

For us.

Anticipate

The next moment

Anticipate

Something wonderful,

And something pleasant

Is about to happen.

Life happens in moments.

Have a day blessed with

Hopeful, peaceful,

And lovely moments.
The moment before flying…

Migrant

Smile more
The winged explorer,
The sky-migrant,
The global glider
The borderless flyer
The bird
Tell me,
Do you look back
To your first nest,
To your first branch,
To your first tree?
Do you only fly onward,
Do you only move forward,
Never glance backward,
Never sigh,
Just fly high?

Me too, a migrant,
Between cities,
Between tongues,
Between thoughts,
Between my origin
And final destination,
Here and now, on earth,
Only pursuing
Peace is worth,
I perch for a while,
I just have one lifetime,
So, I search for peace,
From mile to mile,
And ultimately realise
Peace itself perches
In my heart and my smile.



Peace is within.

I’m not sure

😇
I'm not sure 
What love is,
But I know
Kindness is pure.
In the end,
What changes the story,
What matters totally,
Is how well you treat
The one you claim to love
In thought, word & deed.
Love without integrity is no love

This too shall heal

However lost and hurt you feel, remember impermanence.
The fact of impermanence

We ought to hold

Onto closely,

Especially awarefully,

Consciously, every day.


Impermanence in life

Does remind us

That injuries

of the heart,

body and mind

Do not hurt forever.


This new injury

Feels heavy right now,

Unbearable somehow,

But its not permanent,

Soon it will heal.



Always remember

We are all temporary,

What happens to us

Does end, does pass,

And so shall we.
Each experience, each moment is Fleeting…

A thorn…

Thorns can’t be wished away.
If a thorn pricked,
Hurt and bled you terribly,
Would you intentionally
Put yourself through
That prick again?

Then why let a memory
Of a day bygone
A survived, bad,
Injurious experience,
Revisit, re-prick,
Rehurt you repeatedly?

Let go the past,
Protect your heart,
From hurting.

Heal yourself:
Replace the thorn,
By revisiting
Re-touching the petals
Of only the best
Bygone moments.

Let go gloom,
May your heart bloom.

CHOOSE TO BLOSSOM AND BLOOM TODAY⚘

Thorns do not stop us from reaching out to touch the buds and the blossoms. Live life to the fullest!

Saal Mubaarak

May joy fill up your heart!
May your new year 
Be filled with cheer
Your mind crystal clear
Lots of lovely time
Spent happily with
Your near and dear!
Wishing you
A happy, healthy
And prosperous
New year!

A daily celebration of the Divine in you

Share and Care
The best way 
To observe
The divine
Is to be kind
In thought,
Word and deed.
The best way to pray
Is to share and care
For all fellow beings
And living beings
Who cross our path
Or happen
To be around us.

Share and care!
Pay kind attention to those around you. Each one has a story.

A day full of possibilities

Through small actions
Just think each hour,
Within your power,
What can you do?

You've 7,200 minutes
Plant seeds
Of flowering trees
Just for minutes 15
To find one morning,
Smiling flowers 16!

Left with 7185 minutes
Imagine how much life
You can fill in these!

Have a positively action-filled
And happening day.

May you choose to:
Nourish, accomplish,
and flourish!
Take care.

Mother

Happy Birthday Mummy
Happy Birthday Mummy

Our mother
Like you
There's no other.
We love you more
Than words can utter.

For us
You did ensure
The wealth true:
Confidence
In ourself
You grew.

We are strong
Do no wrong
Take on reality
Fight adversity
As growing up
We saw you
A mother
Like none other

Our mother
Like you
There's no other.
We love you more
Than words can utter,
We love you more
Than words can utter.

Eyes

Your eyes reveal

Kindness
Sadness
Madness

Laughter
And
Glitter

Or

Bitter
And
Anger

Keenness
Meanness
Curiosness

Boredom
Or just dumb,

Desire or dream,

Or shielding shrewd
And outright rude,

A guilt sheer
Or fear clear?

Truth sneaks out
From your eyes
And
Reveals both
Your rise, your fall,
Gives a glimpse
Of your soul.

Eyes know your 'all',
Your wounds and wisdom,
Your greed, your glare,
They reflect it all.

What stories silent,
Sealed lips hide,
Your eyes
Whisper them all.
When your lips rest
your eyes work best

Happy Humming Morning!

Happy Humming!
Today
Welcome thoughts
Of hope and peace,
Negative thoughts
Just release.

Allow not
Disappointment
To stay too long,
Bring back hope
Invite love warmly
And insist laughter
Along to accompany.


Its your heart
Your mind, your soul
Your choice to control.

As hope brings
A smile along,
Hum a song,
Hum a happy song.

Happy Humming Morning!
A New Dawn

Forgiveness Prayer

I seek forgiveness for all my wrongdoings this lifetime and previous lifetimes towards all creatures great and small. May I be forgiven and released from bad karma
Annual Jain Forgiveness Prayer day has coincidentally fallen on 9/11 this year. As if the Universe has conspired that people all over the world ought to forgive each other and move on...for forgiveness will bring peace, and peace will bring progress. 

May the day
Be smooth, silent
And peaceful too,

May this day
You truly forgive
And release all
Creatures great
And small,
From any guilt,
Or hatred or anger
That you may harbour,

May this day
You be truly
Forgiven too,
Not just
For bad karma commited
Intentionally or unintentionally
this life,
But all previous lifetimes too.

Micchaami Dukkadam🙏

Let it go…move forward
