ARROW FROM THE SHADOW

11. ARROW FROM THE SHADOW

 



In one Janma you learn
And in the other you teach
Yogavasishta is the lecture
On dharma and mind management;

Rama was awarded eighteen days
In Thretha Yuga by Sage Vasishta
Krishna in Dwapara gave lessons
To Arjuna in the war field
Rama had a single wife in Sita
Who stood with him for all time
Krishna had many wives
His particular favourite, Radha
Who found herself abandoned too
Lakshmana the younger one
Also stood steadfast with Rama
Supporting him in dangerous times
Balarama, the elder one
Was always tormenting Krishna
Rama sent an arrow in the shadow
Which backfired to kill Krishna;

Each day you take birth
And in the next a rebirth
The karma you do in one Janma
An arrow from the shadow
Comes back in full force
To haunt you in the next Janma.
