" ध्यान करके देखो ....।"

कभी मन ज्योतिर्मय ध्यान करके देखो ,
पवित्रता के सरोवर में स्नान करके देखो ।

प्रश्नों के चक्रव्यूह में बंधे मेरे प्रिय चित्त ,
कभी बाग़-ए-जिहालत को वीरान करके देखो ।

योग से खिलेंगे नए कुसुम मृदुल अंकुर से,
निर्वाण रुपी अर्क का अनुसंधान करके देखो ।

जो ज्ञान मिला है महर्षि पतांजलि से ,
उस दिव्यजोति योगसूत्र का जलपान करके देखो।

स्थिर मन ही मार्गदर्शन की नींव है ,
कभी क्रोध का करुणा के प्रति रुझान करके देखो ।

कभी मन ज्योतिर्मय ध्यान करके देखो ,
पवित्रता के सरोवर में स्नान करके देखो ।
