?~ Date of Return…  ~??

(Everything but karma

has an expiration date)


O’ Mankind! Be it known that

Every soul has a date of return

Written in the invisible letters.

It’s bound to leave your body

Someday, to its heavenly abode…!


Must you realise this eternal Truth,

The wagon called this human body

has to return to its place of origin on a

particular day at a particular moment.


Make an effort to realise this Truth

Be prepared to reach the final abode,

before the body starts its own journey.

Drop your temporal pursuits resolutely

Lest they haunt you for yet another birth


Hence, keep sublimating your intellect

and develop the power of discrimination

To merge with the Supreme Lord Himself..!


~ Pravin Raghuvanshi
