In Stillness of Being, his sixth anthology of poems, Indian-American poet, Maharaj Kaul, describes the human conditions we all must experience.
In the poems:
Stillness Of Being
The World I left Behind
A Struggling Dream Never Complete
Hope Never Blinks
Life Is A Playground
A Spiral Of Time
Music Of Earth Will Never Die
The Paradox Of God
and fifty more, the poet reflects on the joys, dreams, suffering, and will to live a man experiences though the grand and mysterious process called human life.
From the poem Stillness of Being:
Mind plots revolutions,
But inner being wants harmony.
Life came with music,
But world moves by agenda.
Childhood was a pristine dream,
But wisdom turned that into a project.
Ambitions vault our existence,
Energy seethes from our pores.
But we came with a faith,
Our elements beckon tranquility.
There is a more sublime state than success,
World wants tumult but soul seeks stillness.
