Deus non alligatur. God is not bound. Nibbanam paramam sukham. Unbinding is the Highest Happiness. The Heart is Divinity. God is the primal radiance of Divinity. Nature is the primal manifestation of Divinity. The Buddha is the primal realization of Divinity. La ilaha il Allah. Allah is Complete Wholeness.

Lineage

I come from a long line
of shudras,
vaishyas,
kshatriyas,
and brahmanas
And even mlecchas!
My great-great-grand dad born a shudra,
and died a vaishya
while great-grand, a vaishya all his life.
His son born a vaishya,
and became a brahmana
until his passing,
but not before his son adopted
the vaishya line, until
I came along,
and entered
my mother's lineage.
Now I have siblings and cousins,
shudras,
vaishyas,
kshatriyas,
brahmanas,
mlecchas, even --
all sprung from the same body,
the body
of the Great
Embodied
Person,
the Auspicious,
the Truth-Person,
the Sat-Purusha.
To speak of superiority
or inferiority
is as silly as to speak of
chocolate
or
vanilla.
