mortality

November 15, 2007

The long line of philosophers!
None could out talk mortality;
Born out to die; all suffered
Inevitable dusty change;
Their bones are piled as high as
Mount Vipula, lapped by vast seas
Of weeping, pain and parting,
Proving that no philosophy
Can break the wheel of birth and death

-Tanshan

‘Tanshan’ which means Cold Mountain, was the pseudonym adopted by an unknown poet who lived in China as a hermit 1,200 years ago.

    Kismat Se Mile Ho Mujhe Yun Chor Ke Na Jana
    Koi Apna Sa Laga Hai Dekha Sara Zamana
    Yun Hi Chalta Rahega Khushi Aur Gam Ka Aana Jana
    Bas Hamare Saath Rahe Tumhara Yaarana…
