The School

 

Go to school to become a cog

Or go to school to know the fool

who refuses to become a cog or a

quaking frog

 

But to know the way to know,

as to know is to grow

To grow not to social or scriptural

prescriptions but to become Me, Myself

and what is beyond Me

 

With due respect to cogs and frogs

Don’t you want to be something…

Something more than the more?

  • Simple words BUT
    Hits the nail on the head!!

    Words, Words, Words 
    You have spoken so much
    To trap the fools But
    Even after the entrapment
    Fools are only quaking frogs…

    Seeds, Seeds, Seeds
    You have seeded so many sleeping hordes
    But even after the initiation
    Fools are only cogs in the spiritual lane…

    Methods, Methods, Methods
    You introduced from Isha Kriya to Aathi Yogi Aalyam
    But even after living in the conducive atmosphere
    Fools are only racers in the materialistic world…

    An ambigously huge project!!
    Of seeing an enlightened world tomorrow!!
    Hats off to Your beautiful vision….

    We are so indebted to You 
    For all the tedious work that You have taken up…
    Pray and wish we all are as committed as You are
    And as passionate as You are 
    To fulfill Your ONE n only vision!!

    Hope each and every ONE joins 
    The silent revolution of self-realisation!!

    The poem of frog motivates us to know more about us…yes something more than that…THANKS.If you do attach the meaning of the poem…it would reach all category people…as Sadhguru told it would be more effective.

  • If we allow kids to ask questions….. then their mind started picking things very fast, : ) i allow my daughter to ask questions and it works. Thank you Sadhguru…. i always wanted to learn things in this way but in our time nobody look study like this. Now i take care of this with my daughter.

    Namaskar Sadguru,
       Your poem is great. It id really high time to restructure our curriculum to the way we want. While respecting the common struvture, Great Masters including You have tremendous Divine WAy How our children should. Swami Vivekananda’s Man-making Education is an unfullfilled dream in an entire country struvture. We should be able to contribute our life for realising our innate way of teaching and learning and teaching every children in school to allow to go out door everywhere in thevillage and throw down mangoes and play in waters padyfields and become FULL!!!!
    I had a FULL childhood and I feel head ache when I see the plight how the present chilrens’ destiny would be!

    Reminds me of this song by Malvina Reynolds
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUrf_jzn_To&NR=1
    1. Little boxes on the hillside,

    Little boxes made of ticky-tacky,

    Little boxes, little boxes,

    Little boxes, all the same.

    There’s a green one and a pink one

    And a blue one and a yellow one

    And they’re all made out of ticky-tacky

    And they all look just the same.

    2. And the people in the houses

    All go to the university,

    And they all get put in boxes,

    Little boxes, all the same.

    And there’s doctors and there’s lawyers

    And business executives,

    And they’re all made out of ticky-tacky

    And they all look just the same.

    3. And they all play on the golf-course,

    And drink their Martini dry,

    And they all have pretty children,

    And the children go to school.

    And the children go to summer camp

    And then to the university,

    And they all get put in boxes

    And they all come out the same.

    4. And the boys go into business,

    And marry, and raise a family,

    And they all get put in boxes,

    Little boxes, all the same.

    There’s a green one and a pink one

    And a blue one and a yellow one

    And they’re all made out of ticky-tacky

    And they all look just the same.
