Adi Yogi – A Poem by Sadhguru

A quiet Sea
A quiet Day
A quiet Mind

But a raging Heart
Blazing with Fire
Of an ancient Sage.

Burning for many a millennia
Destructive for the ignorant
Enlightening for the seeking
Brutal to the stubborn
Tender to the willing.

When all the tricks fall
The First Yogi’s Fire shall
Burn the ignorant pall
To light the future’s citadel

Citadels of future are first
built in the minds of Ignorance or Light

These citadels when lit with Grace
Of the Blue-Bodied Maker of all race

Will be a worthy place to dwell here
and a passage to the ways of the beyond.

O’ how fortunate are we
To carry the Fire of the Adi Yogi.

7 pieces of verse in less than 10 minutes by Sadhguru

Sadhguru in a moment of outpouring wrote these 7 pieces of verse in less than 10 minutes

I prided in a heart
Strong and stable as a Rock
Then He came uninvited,
Made my heart Beat and Bleed
For every Creature and the Rocks.

One hundred and twelve tricks
To beat the mortal coil
But trapped me in these tricks
The Wily One, now I am tricked
I can neither think nor do anything
that is for Me or of Me.

After having heard all the sweet sounds
After having seen all the Great sights
After knowing all the lovely sensations
I lost all my sense for Him, the One
Who is Not but IS like no other

He is not love
Nor is He compassion
Seek Him not for Comfort
For He is The Completion.

Come know the nameless
Ecstasies of the formless One
Not the joys of fulfillment
This is a game of Self Demise
Are you a sport for a game of No-returns

Don’t you trust the Still One
He drew Me in with his Stillness
Me thought He was the way
Be warned He is the End.

Will you be there for
Your funeral and the Grand
Cremation. The Fire Works
of the Cremation keeper. My Shiva
