Offerings to our Departed souls (Pitras)

Dear readers and fellow bloggers:
Good morning. This article and poem from Harbans Khajuria, my sage Brahminic instructor and dear spiritual friend, are simply excellent. Let us remember and honor, in so many different and yet unifying rituals across the main religions, our dear Departed relatives and friends that have made our stay in this Valley of Tears possible with their sacrifice, care and affection.

As a disciple of Thomas Merton, I believe that our Christian faith has strayed too far away from the original mysticism of our Early Days hiding in caves to become bogged down in the shifting sands of the Cartesian Rationality where we struggle to find a firm surface to step on and move. We must attentively listen to our brothers and sisters from the East, who still have a healthy attachment to the workings of Mother Nature, in order to recoup some of their rejuvenating energy.

May God Almighty have pity on our dear Departed souls and welcome them to his/her/ihr Grace.

And have gone to the lands unknown
We keep in mind them their love and affection
With our love and emotions flowing to the brim
For those who had shown us this beautiful earth
Because due to them only we’re here on this planet
The dear ones who had bestowed us the righteous guidance
Along with showering us their love so tender
And delivered us from many a difficult moments.
Now, as they have turned to Pitr domain
It is our…

  1. Thanks a lot for re-blogging the blog. I think all of us are due to our parents; they look after us while we are in our childhood stage and thereafter we are guided by them. While they are not with us, it is necessary that we also remember them formally. All the human beings recognise this aspect, remember their contribution for bringing us up, educating us and teaching us how best to imbibe value system

    THANKS AND REGARDS
    HARBANS
