Wind - Part 5 & 6
Bheeman and Hanuman are said to be the off springs of Wind in the epics. The Veda says, all living things are off springs of Wind. Life is nothing but Wind. Life is the form / object. Wind is the action. Mother Earth is alive. Her breath is the Wind surrounding the Earth. Wind is Life. He kills lives. Wind is Life. So life is not destroyed. The smaller form or life merges with the eternal form. (The life of individual merges with the soul of the world) There is no death. The entire world is life-form. Appearance, Growth, Change, Disappearance - All are stages / acts of life. We praise the Wind.
Oh Wind, come! Come, carrying the pollen drops, with sweet fragrance that mesmerises the heart. Flow over the leaves and waves, and carry the essence of their soul to bring to us. Oh Wind, come. Flow nicely such that, the fire/warmth of our lives linger long and let the good light glow bright. Don't extinguish it, as your power declines. Don't kill it, by bashing like ghosts. Keep flowing for a very long time, slowly and with good rhythm. We will sing songs on you. We will keep praising you. We will worship you.
