THE ENLIGHTENED~by Indira Sadanandan


 

 

THE ENLIGHTENED

No son is born now
As to make his father
Inclined to bow on his feet
By any miracle of sitting
In a pose of ‘Padmasana’
As on a fully blossomed lotus.
Once it happened in a kingdom
On the slope of Himalayas
Before two thousand and
Six hundred years ago,
When a child born to the king
Susodhana and queen
Mahamaya
The child grew up to Gauthama
And became known as Budha
Means “The enlightened one”
