In 1271 AD lived a genius who left this world richer by his thoughts as he left it later at the age of 22.Saint poet Gyaneshwar-Alandi Pune India.He understood all that Indian thought stood for and gave to the people answers to all their problems then.Even today his Gyaneshwari Geeta is read across India esp.In mahrashtra.He created the the most revered creation in literature of marathi language.He was a social reformer who had to suffer a lot at hands of conservatives then still he ended his life by entering a state of SAMADHI bliss for Eternity- at Alandi pune at a age of 22!! His last words after a harrowing time he had with this mission of his life is a sublime poetry of the mankinds' ultimate wish.-Happiness for all peaceful co existence with all round progress for all by Focus on faith ever increasing within .The true knowledge to us all by continued contact and in 'Touch' of those who are Aware and Awakened-the true saints and the book of Geeta
"Pasaay daan" = A boon asked for all humanity
O Omnipresent God within all of us living beings ,
Whatever efforts I have done by this poetry of life (Gyaneshwari Geeta)
Please elevate it to the heights of YOUR divine satisfaction..only then it can be universal & not mine alone!
Please grant me a boon for these efforts, for all living beings,
Let the knots of vices be undone in the hearts of the unwise and the cruel
Let their devotion and fondness for good deeds and be of service to all , by their proper actions, Increase ever so more..
Let the friendship between all the Living beings /mankind increase ever under your divine grace.
Let those wretched & unkind wallowing in the darkness of their vices-(laziness,Greed,Anger,Egotism,Jealousy,excess Desires,Ignorance of all these and their cures),see the LIGHT of truth,
(By continued focus on this 9,000 verse simplification of the GEETA,The Gyaneshwari)
So let Everyone,thus ,get this 'sunrise of knowledge of his /her own duties=Swadharama' and way of life, (having this now..)
Let Everyone get this Godly goodness (of Swadharma) within (and) let all their wishes and their unselfish desires come true,
Let YOU shower the purest ecstasy of divine true Devotion on each of the Devotees we meet on this earth, and so let this Faith in HIM and each other increase forever and ever.
Come one and all to the 'state' where the The Tree and the Gem which fulfills all your Divine desires are calling you,
So is the resounding call of this vast ocean of Faith which calls you all to drink this Ambrosia of the divine faith and bliss from its never ending source,(the Geeta)
Let the Wise good men who are like spotless full Moon or heatless Sun,or
(saints are like the forever-giving tree= kalpavriksha itself ,or like a parasmani-gem who can transform matter to divine or are like oceans of wisdom and faith )...
be omnipresent and Active for benefit of all,
Let all these people in the Bliss of the divine feel 'complete'=one with You in all the three Worlds of their existence , by worshiping YOU in their hearts always..
Let this book of love and universal happiness lead you ALL to be masters of your Outer and the Inner worlds,THE MIND ,by conquering all the vices and distractions ,seen and unseen and thus be able to see the PURE TRUTH,
O Kings (Lord) of All the Three Worlds! Almighty omnipresent!
This is the only boon I ask from you ever ,nothing else can please me now than bliss for all.I am happy O God for your grant of this boon of love within ,True Faith ,Truth , to the humanity..
Through this book Divine ,YOU, have written through me..
So saying The Great Saint gifted this divine commentary of 9000 verses on Shrimad Bhagvad GEETA ,made easy and relevant to the people of the thirteenth century and beyond till today and for the Tommorrow..He dissolved his whole being into this yearning for the Good Of the World, perpetually in pain,bondage and Maya-falsehoods.He felt COMPLETE only when all living beings were truly in bliss ,by following the tenets of GEETA ,he simplified..
(Are we all NOT dusty ,tainted and imperfect mirrors ,in which we catch the images of the world and the words we read and see, all in the present context ?
So as we improve on and clean these inner mirrors of ours we all keep on Re-discovering a Better and Truer, Purer meaning of any creation...
So is the case here too..I am finding better meaning each time I read these divine words of the Genius written in 1291 AD.).
This is my attempt at the translation after an 85 year old Awakened man inspired me..any improvements welcome..as it belongs to us all..
so you can too suggest any improvements ..too.
