The supreme state of being
You hurt me, I have rage
but I control it, no, it’s not
the way; you hurt me, I
don’t have rage, yes, that is
Akrodh dasha*, the ultimate
state of joyous absence of rage.
I say you don’t teach students
about death, you teach them
about sex; you excluded moral
science from the aggregate,
now it’s no longer taught,
students moving with condoms
and guns in schools; pupils,
right from schools should have
death consciousness; they need
to know that death is not a bad
thing; it’ll reduce suicides, violence,
distress and other diseases;
All right, all right, are you saying
this with rage, with the feeling of
duality? Accept it first with oneness,
in the life you’re living, there’s
one file in one folder.
When you give alms to the poor,
what do you think? Ah, they’re
the less fortunate, this is duality,
think of yourself giving and taking
alms, just as you wash your hands,
you don’t leave your arms.
You are the seen, you are the seer
for life has only one file in one folder.
Akrodh dasha* – complete absence of rage, it is not forbearance, it is a state where you do not have rage. Akrodh dasha is a skill that may be learned through practice.
