Faith  Is A Loving Thing — Badri Raina


BADRI RAINA | Caravan Daily


Faith can be truly liberating

When unalloyed with self;

Faith is not Religion

Which sits on a pile of pelf.

Faith  springs from Intelligence

Which springs from Love;

Love  makes no distinctions

Between  the ‘high’  and the ‘low’

Faith  scoffs at fear of death,

Faith asks no favours;

Faith feels its pain with joy,

Faith never wavers

In the face of oppression

From satraps of the day;

Faith is lord of aloneness,

Faith is forever gay.

Faith sees through flesh and bone,

And knows a nothingness

Which is the universal progenitor

Of all that there is.

Faith does not shirk its work

Of making moments resplendent,

Of standing with the succourless

Whom  the brutes have shunned.
