Love is in the Air - Birth



Day 2 A to Z Challenge 2015 - Birth

Lord Vishnu conferred with His Goddess Lakshmi
Their plan must now begin
His love for her made her blush demurely
He conveyed it with a sweet grin

Time to take a human birth
Lord Vishnu did exclaim
And so Lord Rama came upon this Earth
Evil to destroy or tame


Having watched the tyrannies of Ravana and the pleadings of Goddess Earth to intervene and save her, Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi, decide to put their plan into action. And part of their plan is for God and Goddess to also experience and enjoy human love.

We are often so focussed on God and Goddess as Divine beings looking after mankind, that we overlook that they share a deep love for each other and that each is the strength and life force of each other. Perhaps one of the purposes of human birth was to also remind us of that. 

One of the beautiful aspects of Divine love both from Spirit view and as Lord Rama is the ability to forgive. Both aspects of Divinity (in Spirit form and human form), give humanity many chances to redeem themselves before any step to destroy is made.

And lest we forget, all plans in Universes are orchestrated by the Divine and we all have a part to play in it.

So as Lord Vishnu descended to the Earth as Lord Rama what did Goddess Lakshmi think and feel? Check out my verses tomorrow.

Love is in the air.  May we rejoice that humanity was blessed as a result of a Divine human birth.

The Ramayana is a historical chronicle of events during the life of Lord Rama in an ancient time in a land called Bharatvarsh a part of which is now modern day India. 

This year's theme was given to me through meditation. But more than just a theme I was also asked to write this from the perspective of Divine love and not just a recounting of the events as they took place. Hence the essence of my posts is "Love is in the air".

The individual theme and tone of my verses are also given to me. And I try to convey what Spirit wants to say through my poetry and prose. In essence, I only transcribe what is given to me, the author of these posts is my soul, the Universe, God and Goddess.

  3. It is getting better with each letter :) I like the idea of Avatar coming to earth to experience human love. In fact that is the key point to remember about this concept of Avatar - to experience all that humans experience and yet to transcend those things to regain the divinity. Isn't that so? Looking forward to C.

    1. Thanks Beloo. You absolutely nailed it when you said to experience all that humans experience and yet to transcend those things to regain the divinity. So glad you get what I write. Sometimes I wonder if it is making sense to everyone.

  16. Lord Vishu and Goddess Lakshmi are my favourite God couple, if that's a word. Both powerful and respectful... at least that's how it's shown in TV ... that impression is hard to go :) Beautiful poem.

  18. Thank you Suzy. Profound in all aspects. Powerful, beautifully written, simply yet creating a necessary tension. Not for nothing is this myth one of the very great ones. I wonder if Joseph Campbell gives a critique of this myth. I'm sure he does. It may be through his writings that I know of Lord Vishnu and His Goddess Lakshmi. Does this myth form part of The Bhagavad Gita? - I'm not sure ...Thank you again.

    1. Thanks Susan. Lord Rama was the 7th avatar of Lord Vishnu and Lord Krishna was the 8th. The Bhagavad Gita is the spiritual dialogue that Lord Krishna had with Prince Arjun on the battlefield of Kurukshetra in the other historical epic the Mahabharata.

  26. My first time popping by your blog I loved hearing about Lord Vishnu
    and Lord Rama while I do not admit I know a lot about these Gods and Goddesses (a little on Lakshmi from my Western perspective) but I enjoyed the verse and your understanding.
