The Last Lesson of Yoga

The Last Lesson of Yoga

.

The reason Yoga was taught in the midst of a battle,

Is that it is Kali Yuga and iron is its metal,

.

So, the principles of Yoga will be practised under fire,

And our last pose will be shavasana on our funeral pyre.

.

Meanwhile, the corruption of our world will bubble and roil,

Until we are done with the stench and crudeness of oil.

.

Yet, that will not be the end, but a new beginning,

A word from our sponsor before the second inning.

.

For this world was designed to test our assumption,

An exile devised to see if we have the gumption,

.

A global plot to challenge our desire,

To force our hand and see with whom we conspire.

.

Will we remember that all the players are divine?

Or merely salute when “the dark ones” say to stand in line.

.

Will we learn who is who in the politic?

And with our conscious knowing finally pick -

.

The planetary path of truth and beauty,

Living love, preserving life our duty.

.

That is the dharma handling each thing just right,

Removing darkness and filling the world with light.

.

But the “blind king” has stolen all the land,

While his “slumlord son” makes cages out of sand,

.

And his uncle runs casinos filled with whores,

Whose previous birth was as soldiers in needless wars,

.

While, alcohol and drugs destroy their brain,

And feasting on animals raised in pain.

.

They are extinction waiting for time to unwind,

These are the hundred children of a life made blind.

.

But this is the slime and mud where the lotus blooms,

A pregnant pause while the “Fates” adjust their looms.

.

When the clouds and threatening winds are gone,

The lake will again reflect the gracious swan.

.

So, fear not “Arjuna”, O Draupadi do not fret,

For Bhagavan has not fully descended yet.

.

The prequel has cast the players and set the plots,

Condensed the knowledge, undid the ancient knots.

.

And the twisted vrittis by which we once were bound,

Have been cut, broken and cast upon the ground,

.

So, with Vishnu’s love and upon Garuda’s wings,

“Uttishta! Uttishta! “stand up”, the chorus sings.

.

For we are here this time to see Love win,

To heal our planet, so let the symphony begin.

.

“Namaste”! I see you and you are divine,

So, let that be your drug, the immortal wine –

.

That intoxicates with a bliss that never fades,

That heals and saves us from the petty masquerades,

.

Where plots to harm are merely foolish masks,

To a newly awakened world of light that basks –

.

In truth and beauty preserving a sacred life,

Where Vishnu and Lakshmi are cosmic husband and wife,

.

Where together male and female Divine restores us,

Raise your voice with love and join the chorus,

.

And winning by forever killing the need for war,

The last lesson of Yoga is freedom’s door,

.

And we are here to embody immortality,

To embrace all life at last and set them free.

.
