A TREE WITHOUT ROOTS

July 15, 2012 Comments Off

There is a mysterious tree,
It has no roots.
It has grown without a seed,
It bears fruits without flowers,
It has no branches, no leaves,
It has no pith, no stem.
Many birds are sitting on this tree.
It is a very ancient tree,
It is beginningless and endless;
It is causeless,
It never dries up,
It cannot be cut by axe.
It gives shelter to millions;
It is vijnana­vrksa (tree of pure knowledge).
It gives immortality,
It is superior to kalpaka vrksa (wish­fulfilling tree).
-Thus sayeth Sivananda
