WHISPERS: Buddha and life

On 17th May, Lord Buddha's Birthday was celebrated, hence thought of sharing some of my Haiku on Buddha and life.... This is also in celebration for the birthday of a friend on 22nd May....

Zade Buddha in China

The silent Buddha
Is not so silent
Listen from heart
I went to that lonely temple
Again, Buddha smiled
I was looking for pain
Buddha meditates in the song
The girl sings as she cleans the floor
Cleansing his soul
A rock solid thought
Plunged deeper in the pond
Calmness ripples across Buddha's smile
This 100 year old Banyan tree is in the Center of Auroville, Puducherry
Looking at young Bhikshu sitting below
Bodhi tree wonders
Who Buddha is?
In the shadow of Bodhi Tree
Young Buddha smiles
What life is?
Bodhi tree
Sad and alone
Needs another Buddha to enlighten
Tree knows
So do the falling leaves
Times does not know, it has come
Life sometimes
Is lived
Sometimes wasted on living
Anchored in Karma
Chained to past
Living is: trying to break free
This is a mural on the walls of Buddhist temple in Sarnath Varanasi
Here Buddha gave his first sermon
Soul is beautiful; lotus in the pond
Scentless, detached;
Yet flowering, in soft colours of living
We have lived and died
On the banks of eternal river
Of various lives
Between the two mirrors
Of life and living
I reflect, eternally
Anchored in ocean of life
A red little boat
नमः शिवाय
Om Namah Shivaya
