What of us, salt of the Earth, the little folk, the people—no larger, no smaller, than the fragile fingerprints of God; of God who is not known as we unknown remain, oblivion-scaped in the bigness of the armored-armied, bubble bursting, bludgeoning world

the regal realm with the sorrowless name
they call it Begumpura, a painless place
no taxes nor cares or property owners there
no wrongdoing, worry, terror or torture.
Oh my brothers i take it as my own
my distant home,where everything is right...

they stroll thru fabled palaces unchallenged.
Oh Ravidas, a tanner now set free
those who walk beside me are my…Continue

All our Desire, Anger are wiped out. Listening…Continue
