Vesak thoughts

Ascending, descending
High or low
Burning with anger
Craving with desire,
Ego-centric, selfish.

Cheating, misleading
Competing, fighting
Accumulating, claiming
Planning and plotting
Deceiving and killing

Panting and ranting
Passionate, lustful
Avaricious, envious, rapacious
Hovering and lingering
Repenting at last
In the whirlpool of life.

We the lesser beings

Calm, composed,
Compassionate, serene,
Tranquil, unbaffled,

You the Supreme One

The refreshing breeze,
A ray in the darkness,
The drizzle in the drought,
Oasis in the desert,
Solace to the burning heart.

Redeem us.
