IN PRAISE OF SILENCE
Leave your restless wanderings- traveler-hark
And quieten clamorous voices from within,
Which rise- O! listen- be attentive- keen
And what Vyogi says, O! traveler mark.
O’er- burdened with the word, we call success,
Which world proclaims so loudly. Underneath
The very loudness lissome sounds. Beneath
Your breast is harmony- within access.
So reach for it and listen, pay homage.
To hurtling go at problems is bad taste.
Be patient silence can with ease manage
All calamities which lay humans waste.
When you are faced with problems and carnage-
In silence meet them—not in clueless haste.
