Introducing the Hindi poem:
Chaman Lal Raina
This poem has the source in Kashmir Shaivism related to the the philosophy of "Being and Becoming". Kashmir Shaivism considers Shiva as the Sadashiva/ ever benign Shiva.This poem refers to the various Tattvas, literally Categories, which are in essence the different facets of Shiva. The poet has given the name SOPAAN--the steps. to reach that stage. An aspirant has to undergo the Yoga as defined in the Trika philosophy. It is purely intellectualin essence and non- rirualistic in practice.We need to think in terms of consciousness. The same truth has been experienced by Sant Kabir, Sant Ravidas and other saints of the order.All these saints and sages were eager to attain the Sadasiva Consciousness.

I would like to add the following words to the introduction, written by me.All the great saints who belive in the Nirakara and Sakara form of the Divine understand their ISHTa/the Divine of their realization upto the SAAMYA SADASHIVA state.While some reach to the Saumya state, which is all Nirakara.Kabir was such a great saint.Sant Tulsidas visualised Lord Rama in the human form and found all the Divine potentials in Rama.

This poem is too literal for me to comment upon,'bahut suksham batain kahi gayee hain is poem main, jo ki aam aadmi ke samij se bahar hai'. This of corse my own perception. Long live the poet, she has great foture ahead.

Dear Subhash ji , I do put the spiritual words and Mantras topgether to make my words as an offering to Sada Shiva, who is in every atom of this Universe. That is the Shiva,who is SAUMYA.

Can the second poem will be the Kashmir/Koshur Rendering of the same poem, by you.That would give a new meaning to the applied Trika in Kashmiri.
