OH  GOD ! ! !

Oh God! Do I see your presence ?

Yes Of Course.  I see You!

Across the world in millions of Temples!

 

Oh God! Do I feel your presence?

Yes Of course. I feel You!

Across the world in millions of Examples!

 

I see you in the Garbha Gruha of the sacred temple.

I feel you in the Garbha Gruha of my clear heart!

 

I see you behind the wrought – iron gates sometimes opened, otherwise bolted!

I feel you behind the temples, in my brain constantly, perennially, never closed!

 

I see you being showered with Holy water every morning and evening,

I feel you in each drop that starts from the sky and touches the Earth.

 

I see you jeweled in most exquisite diamonds and expensive ornaments,

I feel you in the priceless jewel – the dew drop – nestled in the leaf.

 

I see you adorned the most dainty and fragrant flowers,

I feel you in the plethora of flora abundant in the wilderness !

 

I see you by the oil lamps, burning constantly – 24 x 7.

I feel you in the first ray of the sun, illuminating the snowy mountains & deep valleys!

 

I see you beside the beautiful decorations and colourful rangolis,

I feel you in the magnanimous blend of the Vibgyor – The Rainbow!

 

I see you in different sizes, shapes, colours and forms,

I feel you in the space beyond me in your Viraat Swaroop!

 

I see you at certain hours of my day, as prescribed by the pundits,

I feel you persistently, repeatedly, endlessly each moment, per se!

 

I see you when I am low in life and have a need to see you,

I feel you when you lift me with my weight of sorrows!

 

I see you when I am high on Life, and come to say a polite “Thank You”,

I feel you when you push me gently on my buyant road of success!

 

I see you in the Hindola in your adorable Baal Swaroop,

I feel you when I hold my child and feel his heartbeats next to mine!

 

I see you in every person around me, following his own faith,

I feel you in that dear friend who accepts me with all my faults!

 

I seek your Blessings in the Aarti dazzling with thousand diyas,

I feel your Blessings when my Mom’s hand touches my head!

 

I see you in the delicious Prasad, I relish and devour,

I feel you in each morsel fondly fed to me by my dad with a fond tap on my shoulder!

 

God! Do I see your presence??

Of Course ! I see your Presence Everywhere around me!

 

Oh God! Do I feel your Presence??

Of Course! I feel you ultimate presence In each heartbeat I am blessed with.
