मुक्ताकाश


स्थूल रह गया नीचे
अस्तित्व छूट गया पीछे
और अब तो तू भी नहीं
सिर्फ़ मुक्ताकाश
अनंत शून्य. . चैतन्य.

कोई वासना, कामना,
शिक़ायत, प्रार्थना,
आभार ही.
कौन करे ?
किससे ?

क्षण निरन्तर नहीं
कैसे रोको उसे ?
आया और गया
घटना घट गयी
बस.. बात ख़त्म  हो गयी !

*This  poem is dedicated to Purba Chakraborty, whose ‘Paragliding…’ inspired me to write this on one of my out-of-body experiences in deep meditation in remote Himalayas.

*With apologies to my Guru who advises us not to share these…sorry Boss, the writer in me couldn’t resist the temptation of wording a part, and overpowered the seeker in me…can’t hide from You, You are omniscient! We err to be forgiven by Your benevolence.

  1. First of all, thank you so much Sir for mentioning me in this post. I am so glad that my post on paragliding inspired you to write this.

    I got goosebumps as I read the poem. I was wondering how that out-of-body experience would have felt like in real...wow! Thank you so much for sharing this extraordinary poem. Loved reading it :)

  5. न कोई वासना, न कामना, न शिक़ायत, न प्रार्थना, न आभार ही. कौन करे ? किससे ?
    Though you have primarily mentioned here the state of meditation, it also shows the state of passive acceptance when almost nothing matters. A very profound poem Sir.
