Does life stand in the fluttering leaves? Yes. Does life moves the roaring sea-water? Yes. The stone that is dropped from the roof falls in the floor. What causes the change? The life in it. What is the state of the water canals? Life-state. The wind which was mute has started to blow! What has happened to it? Life happened. The cart is being pulled by the bullocks. The life of bullocks is carried to the cart. While the cart goes, it goes with life. The Kite! It has life. The Steam Engine train has life! Big life. All the machines have life. The Earth-ball rotates ceaselessly with high force. She has an unending life. The Mother Earth. Hence, every thing on her surface has life. The whole world revolves. The moon revolves. The Sun revolves. Crores and crores and crores and crores Multi-miles apart and farther and beyond The scattered stars in the skies are revolving. Hence, this earth has life. We call the 'life' of the World as Wind. We hail and praise him thrice a day.
We can't praise the Wind. For his praise is endless. He is praised by the Rishis as "Ever-persistent Brahma" We worship the life breath. Let him protect us. We worship the Abhaanan. Let him protect us. We worship the Vyaanan. Let him protect us. We worship the Udhaanan. Let him protect us. We worship the Samaanan. Let him protect us. We are spreading the acts of the Wind. We pray the life. Let life live.
