Oh life, who knows the goodness of you? You are the visible God. All rules are formed because of you. All rules are destroyed because of you. Oh life, You are the wind, you are the fire, you are the water, you are the sky. In the things that appear, you are the guideline of appearance. In the things that change, your work is to change them. The insect that flies, the tiger that kills, The worm that crawls, the countless lives in this world, The infinite living things in the countless worlds - All these are the explanation of you. We consider the lives filled and spread in the land, water, air. In the area of a square-feet in the air, lives lakhs of organisms, invisible to the naked eye. One big organism; within its body, many small organisms; within them, many smaller organisms than that; within that even smaller ones-- Like this the world has stuffed life. Huge -- Huge than the huge -- bigger than that -- bigger than that -- nucleus -- smaller than that nucleus -- even smaller than that -- even smaller than that --there is no end in both ways. Endless in both ends. Poets, when we wake up everyday in the morning, let us praise all the lives. "Prayers, Lord Wind, the omnipresent Brahma"
