Garuda Puran

Sarita Aryal

Sarita Aryal

One fine day, chosed something to listen,
Curious and expectant, ‘Garuda Puran’ i hasten !
The very part first !
Aroused my more knowledge thirst !!
pacified my tormented soul, everywhere because of ‘tandab,’ of ruthless death !!
but in a corner in my heart! something hurt !!
‘Pita’, ‘Putra’ only pita putra !!
Expectedly, i continued to hear !!
Amazed with very minute detail,
description of before and after ritual !!
Turned on my mind everything visual !
I listened but at the moment !
Felt like arose from death bed torment !!
when my ears received those words !!
and brain explained the understanding !!
for a bereaved wife, childless or with Child up grown
the highest dharma is to jump on the fire (Sati dharma)wild
With husband along !!
felt like my soul rose from pyre and turned rebe l!!
Somebody make me understand what is sati dharma ??
