Ass Poetry

rāsabharrodana nyāyaḥ (braying of an ass)

While making unpleasant whining, the ass thinks he is singing very melodiously. But after a while, its braying fades, and finally stops.

The materialistic mind is prone to produce a lot of racket, all the time. It can not stop even for a second. Following its course, the people under the control of such untamed minds, come up with unpleasant donkey-like sounds through songs, books, speeches, journals, televisions, the internet, and other media. Such loud noises last for a while or less, just to be replaced by another's braying. In fact, these men have to take birth as asses, just to realize fully their minds urges to be "sung." On the contrary, repeating, as much wide as possible, the eternal, unchangeable, ever fresh full message of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, Bhagavad-gītā As It Is, and so on, brings utter wrench from the vicious cycle of repeated birth and death. This beautiful poetry has not become boring, and will not become boring even if sung and heard unlimited times.
