An Introduction to Spoken Kashmiri



Ask Krishna

Why must one choose between
heaven and earth
balance yin and yang
and knowing maya yet desire
why can't one be both
here and there
please this and that
be calm and angry
and if that cannot be
why not be neither here
nor there?
Trishanku did it. 

We are alive in spite of ourselves
we have seen torsos breathing
for legs arms eyes ears
smell speech
do not make a man.
We just exist
we cannot perceive ourselves.
Let us not try lifting mounts
on little fingers.
It is futile
speaking of our nature
ask Godel.
Death swallows the earth
death swallows the hearth
the earth buries the dead
the dead haunt the earth
the earth gives birth
like serpents in one circle
cycles are endless.
Ask Krishna Buddha Abhinav Gandhi
or ask the beggar in the street
or ask me.
