A Yogi, a Brahmachari

An ascetic herself, Vatsala pays her tribute to a yogi and a Brahmachari (celibate) in this verse.

I met a yogi, a Brahmachari,
Little did he speak to me,
But I felt in many lives,
he’d been guiding me.

The Yoga aasans –
he knew them all,
To seekers he taught them all,
He said,
“Yoga blesses good health to all”.

The Vedas, The Upanishads –
he’d studied them all,
In his eyes sparkled knowledge
like bright gold,
His sermons spread unveiled truth ,
wisdom for all.

In his charisma glowed faith in God,
From his smile wise to all zeal flowed.
