Serve Spontaneously!

Cover of "Bhutan"

my dear politicians, politicos, campaigners, party members, workers, would be public reps & (voters), fellow drukpas:

what separates us little compared to what unites us
we share a little yet vastly blessed kingdom in the sacred Himalayas
we come from villages
all of us love chillies
dried beef jerkys
the more than occasional wine
archery
bantering jokes
and if prodded we be related!
then we share the same Monarchs of the Dragon Kingdom
and indeed grew up receiving their profound words of wisdom and pragmatism
guided as such and privileged to be the recipients of their peerless service
kindness
care
concern
compassion
and so much more
as the winds of change storm
as the tides of torrential falls drum and thud the ground beneath yer feet
perhaps it's apt that these are the periods where we are most vulnerable
yet opportunities arise
in such disguises
perhaps these are testing times
but what's a life if not the eventual wait for death?
when little things gets immersive
the bigger view is dimmed
this is when we should be most alert

Gangkhar Puensum from Cher-tang-la (Pronounced...

alive
aware
for if ya actually keep the faith
give it back tenfold or more
whether ye be elected or rejected
remember to serve is to receive
and most people serve on a daily basis
some sweep the streets
others fill in the potholes
many keep yer toilet tanks & sceptics awashed and safe
then there are the majority-
they farm
walk
toil
often making no more than the next meal
or no meals at all
or schools for their kids
hospitals for their health
then we have public servants
they make do with routine-work
doing their bit
day by day

English: Bhutanese people at the Wangdi Phodra...

as accountants
drivers
peons
et al
we have the biz-folks too
they keep the rest employed
try to revv up the economy
the engine that's necessary to keep pace
if not lag behind
often at losses
now when ya understand these even emotionally
if not by intellect
you'd know that to serve is the noblest of callings
to serve as an elected rep of yer own constituency
that much more of a privilege


Taktshang Monastery, Bhutan Français : Le mona...

to serve yer country
such an honor!
and to serve right and humbly
to keep yer ground sound
yer speech right
yer actions well-motivated
yer concerns genuine
this if ya remember and seek fervently-
you're already accepted
remembered
not just publicly
but within yerself
as yerself
since we're a dharma kingdom blessed with living siddhas that ya all know so well
remember the dharma
it will guide yer karma
accept yer karma
it will strengthen yer dharma
and in the end-
you will know more than i the profound words of Nagarjuna:
"all the happiness there is in the world comes from wishing happiness for others; all the misery there is in the world comes from wishing happiness for the self"-
for we are all serving one way or another
if that be the case
why not serve in that ancient and noblest of traditions as our seers and predecessors have done?
as our kings continue to demonstrate without fail
without bail
no other anchor but the brave sail
in purity
striving at nothing but the walk on the Noble Path paved by the Shakyamuni Buddha
who toiled in a manner similar
who wanted to serve but did not know how
hence sought the scriptures
the yogas
fasts
renunciation
self-emaciation
till he found his calling
realized his failings
came to his buddhahood
and served and taught;
lived and served...

and my dear fellow Drukpas of The Glorious Dragon Lineage-
perhaps its apt that yer reps represent you in all fairness-
if they're what they are its a reflection upon thee
if the reflections good credit too goes to thee
but when it turns sour do not be so dour
for two slapping hands make a sound
or a folded lotus
or a jacking hammer
to just blame is lame
to just cuss and curse is a shame
we're all mirrors really
reflecting each others good, bad and ugly deeds
and such-
should vote minus the rotting rote
take no nonsensical note
then placing such morals for yerselves and yer reps to come
thumb in the ink naked and bold
Bhutan-Pos
this is us
cast the ballot with no hold
always remembering the frailty of human nature
communities
societies
countries
and the need for temperance
tolerance
patience
compassion
thus remembering the bigger picture always
in light of the daily details
keep abiding in the temporal triple gems
and the profound triple jewels!
