Can a votary of renunciation
The Mahaprajna,
Without the written word
To his aid,
Produce a treatise
Economics of Mahavira
The mysterious urge -
Rises a poser -
Can the concept of dispossession
Produce the philosophy of possession?
The answer, all pervasive
With the depth, and the countenance
I am omnipresent,
On the ground,
At the depth of the bottom
Piercing the non-existent existence
Flashes the laser beam
Long lasting.
Vibrations of Mahavira's
Sublime words
Capturing the atoms of understanding.
Not only the human,
The deity and the demon.
Not only the beasts
And the birds,
Trees and vegetation,
Listened -
To comprehend,
Forgetting the mutual rancour
With the help of abnegation
The sacred words of Mahavira,
The value of the ultimate truth.
Not only for the individual,
Not only for the group
The spiritual philosophy,
Ethics and Sociology,
Political Science and Economics.
Required is the capturing eye,
The product of self-determination.
The disappearance of the surprise
The memoirs of 'Bhuvalaya'
Encaptured in a letter
And encountered by language
In which is found
The Russian and the Japanese
The French and the German
There is no other script
For which there is no facsimile.
The imperative,
The probing eye
Which can encapsulate
The quintessence of the written word.
Here is the gift
Of Mahaprajna
A symbol of
The abundance of originality.
With communion of
The preachings of Mahavira,
And the interpretation of Mahaprajna;
With the association of Mahavira,
And the wisdom of Mahaprajna;
A live representation
A new light,
A powerful assurance,
A new confidence.
So spoke
the Mahaprajna;
Only by the understanding of possession
Can one produce
The sacred philosophy of abnegation,
Economics of non-violence and peace.
A delightful path
On which to tread,
All readers
Can acquire
The radiant diamond
Of peace
Which had glided into the oblivion
By the blinding
