O ! Man

 

                      O ! Man


                      O ! Man you applaud yourself perhaps,

                   For your achievements and progress,

                   In the march from caves and huts

                   To castles, sky scrappers and rockets,

                   from stones, sticks, swords and arrows.

                   To guns atom bombs and missiles

                   And seek heights higher and higher

                   To fetch your heaven down to Earth,

                   Subdue the heavenly bodies

                   And hoist your flag of victory

                   On them and rewrite the epics of old,



By defeating the gods of your own making

With your acquired knowledge of sciences. 

From the marvellous knowledge

You acquired of mind and this universe

Your strength and powers, as wise

Industrious and judicious, as you are,

Developed faculties of mind, head and heart

And learned to fly in space

As nimble as celestial beings

With your souls ascended

By spiritual Occult science

Now in mortal body, aided 

By sciences material you reached.

Newtons, Einsteins and Amstrongs,

Exponents of the laws of Nature

Of Substance, Space and of cause and effect

Of objects of Earth or heavenly bodies

And how and when and why

They cause to act and react. 

Yet to know yourself you fail

Though none is high or low

For happiness you seek

More material, name and fame.

If you came from Nowhere

Nowhere do you go 

Though transient the mortal body

Know, the Self is Eternity itself
