Congratulations for this important milestone, and many more happy returns of the day!

In this one year, 944 threads, and 10,393 posts by 223 members! That averages 4 threads and 46 posts per member, a good show!

Yea, we will make the second year even better.

OM TAT SAT...

I found a poem about the sword that your avatar carries.


I thought I should ask of thee---but I dared not---the rose wreath thou hadst on thy neck. Thus I waited for the morning, when thou didst depart, to find a few fragments on the bed. And like a beggar I searched in the dawn only for a stray petal or two.

Ah me, what is it I find? What token left of thy love? It is no flower, no spices, no vase of perfumed water. It is thy mighty sword, flashing as a flame, heavy as a bolt of thunder. The young light of morning comes through the window and spread itself upon thy bed. The morning bird twitters and asks, `Woman, what hast thou got?' No, it is no flower, nor spices, nor vase of perfumed water---it is thy dreadful sword.

I sit and muse in wonder, what gift is this of thine. I can find no place to hide it. I am ashamed to wear it, frail as I am, and it hurts me when press it to my bosom. Yet shall I bear in my heart this honour of the burden of pain, this gift of thine.

From now there shall be no fear left for me in this world, and thou shalt be victorious in all my strife. Thou hast left death for my companion and I shall crown him with my life. Thy sword is with me to cut asunder my bonds, and there shall be no fear left for me in the world.

From now I leave off all petty decorations. Lord of my heart, no more shall there be for me waiting and weeping in corners, no more coyness and sweetness of demeanour. Thou hast given me thy sword for adornment. No more doll's decorations for me!


This is song of soul, I suppose. Is the sword that you carry similar; a gift? Carry the sword well Satay.

Happy birthday to HDF.

namaste Atanu,

Thank you for the beautiful poem. I wasn't expecting any such thing in relation to satay's sword!

My favourite part...


No more doll's decorations for me!

It really is...isn't it?

The sword that my avatar caries is symbolic. Each hindu should carry this symbol. I think that each hindu should be like the knight in the avatar. Sword facing downward indicates peace yet the knight is ready to raise the sword on a second's notice to protect dharma. This image is not new to dharma adherents, however, hindus have forgotten this image...but I digress.

And yes, it is a gift!

Thanks everyone for the wishes. HDF belongs to you all.

Namaste,

I am glad that you found the poem beautiful. I have also learnt often that God makes very unexpected things to happen, to enliven the lives of devotees. Isn't it the Atma that alone enjoys everything within itself. It is a mystery though as to why we feel depressed sometimes.

What you have written about the sword is also beautiful and truly let this be true.

Om Namah Shivayya
