RM35. BACHELOR'S TOUCH

a poem by Rajaram Ramachandran, India - poetry writer, author, poet

RAMANA MAHARISHI
(BED TIME STORY - 4)

Ramana said, “One can’t judge
A realized Rishi at any stage,
By his mere facial appearance,
But judge by his real intentions.

To support this he told a story.
“A lifeless male child was born
That caused his parents worry,
And they prayed Krishna then.”

“Krishna said, any touch
By a pure bachelor which
Will give life to the child
But everyone was afraid.”

“Even Sukadevar was afraid
To touch the lifeless child,
As he might be exposed,
If the child remained dead.”

“When Krishna touched him
Alive the lifeless child came.
He was none other than
Parikshith Maharaj later on.

How can He claim to be pure
Moving with Gopis? None was sure,
But who can doubt the Lord
When He gave life to the child?”

A realized soul only can feel,
The presence of one such soul,
Thus Ramana told the devotees,
Who began to sleep in their beds.
