Haiku #29

Your eyes don’t see me,

I give you the divine eyes,

See My opulence… // 11 – 8 //

Bhagwaan in this shlok tells us that if we need to see Him, then we need a different set of eyes. Divine eyes. A different outlook than what we have. He shows the way too through this chapter and emphasises that He is omnipresent.

Readers, are we able to see Him everywhere and in everything? In animate and inanimate. If so, do we treat them according to our whims or understanding? Let us all develop this understanding in our lives. Will we?

The shlok for your reference :
न तु मां शक्यसे द्रष्टुमनेनैव स्वचक्षुषा
दिव्यं ददामि ते चक्षु: पश्य मे योगमैश्वरम् ।।

But you cannot see my cosmic form with these physical eyes of yours. Therefore, I grant you divine vision. Behold my majestic opulence!

  1. I think the divine is within us, but we don’t see God because of our focus on outward and worldly things.
    There is one divine song:
    “dikhai bhi jo na de, nazar bhi jo aa raha hai.. wohi khuda hai..
    nazar jo rakhe samatein bhi, vo jan leta hai niyatein bhi..”
