The whole night they blare
senseless mantras to arouse
gods and keep mortals
from sleep without caring how
they hurt the old, sick and child

they don't sing praise
with understanding if they knock
the door will open:
love compels descent of divine
in white silence reigns spirit

white silence reigns spirit
You definitely caught my attention! "...Love compels descent of divine in white silence reigns spirit..." Beautifully put in a meek voice of grace.

My brother is one of those who go around preaching to others about what they "should" believe. And his way is the only way to believe, oh how great Christ is and on and on but then does many things that are so contradictory. He calls himself such a Christian then behaves like anything but.

I am not fond of these, as I call them, "Twelve O'clock Christians" I have never liked being preached to. However I do hope they all find a higher understanding. For me, it's easy ti recognize a true believer. They are one's who send silent messages of love.

Thank you for this wonderful work,
God Bless

Calling God loudly
In the Kerala 'dehath' where i live , this is an all -too disgusting fact of life.

Just opposite where I live ,is an ancient Hindu temple , built over the spot where ,legend has it, the Pandavas set foot on. For generations though ,it remained unused and derelict.

However ,rather recently ,some Brahmins took it upon themselves to 'purify' it, presumably exorcising all the demons that had 'inhabited' the place for aeons.And get it 'going' once more.

Bizarrely the direct result of this has been the shattering ,to smithereens, of our collective peace and tranquility . Often for weeks on end it becomes impossible to sleep , with the temple loudspeakers blaring chants and filmi tunes throughout the night.

Appeals to temple authorities have been to no avail. They seem to believe it's their constitutional duty to prevent people from getting a fair night's sleep.

The cops ,for their part, are petrified of intervening - for fear of raking up the RSS and their goons. And precipitating savage communal backlashes . Which is the other Damocles Sword hanging over us Indians.

It's all very well for blinkered Westerners , who've never set foot in India, to romanticise about 'white silences ' etc.

The reality however is far more sordid. The 'silences' - more scarce than water in the desert - have to be blood red or pitch black. Truly terrifying lulls preceeding monstrous maelstroms.
