GAUTAMA





~MYSTIC MUSINGS



What would have caught Gautama's fancy?!

When the world was seeking solace in brothers and sisters,

he went and sat under a Bodhi tree.

He shunned the scent of women and wealth

for the smell of earth and a grass bed.

What did he urgently denounce that we foolishly clasp?

What did he glimpse that we fail to seek?
