the selfsame avatar…

the selfsame avatar has had many different births;
the god-man thousands of times has walked this very earth.

the same one glorious sun has many different names;
light is not diminished because of linguistic claim!

how is that jesus has become the one and only savior-
why would one prophet among many enjoy such favor?

christian fundamentalists are such a brainy lot;
the bible as the literal word of god- what total rot!

the same holds true for the koran, to a lesser degree:
the text is not corrupt, but the “reading” is sure nasty!

forget about the books- even the big buddhist canon-
silence is much more impressive regarding the atman!

why are all the lovely occasions of god forgotten?
darvish shouts out, it’s all those books rotting and rotten!
