It has been seen that the incarnations of our Creator had to endure trials and tribulations in their lives while living on this earth. They presented a living example for us humans to see how best they withstood onslaughts of those who opposed the very idea of departure from their pseudo and outdated beliefs. These incarnations faced hurdles at every step but with their foresights and fortitude these Apostles of Peace challenged the old and hackneyed mores of behaviour and came out unscathed ultimately.
Lord Jesus Christ is one example amongst others like Lord Krishna, Lord Rama who gave new meaning and content to the philosophy of living. These Messengers of Peace fought for the common people and were able to rid the society of the evil doers and challenged the very philosophies of people at the helm of affairs in periods of time. In that process these Sons of God had to face opposition. But in their death even they gave a new meaning of life to us humans to follow. Their ideals and preachings are held dear by us all and will remain so till eternity.
A Friday within Holy Week,
Call it a Good Friday or a Great Friday,
No strings attached whatsoever,
A day long penance and fasting observed without fail,
This Day is commemorated as an anniversary,
Of death of our revered Christ,
But this Day’s purity remains doubtlessly intact.
A Day which we reminiscence,
When our beloved Lord Jesus Christ,
Offered himself on the cross,
Without even a slightest emotional upsurge,
Peaceful in real life
And serene whilst embracing death so certain.
Underwent crucification and ultimate surrender,
To Him on this Day,
Suffering pangs in the process for us.
A holy death,
His supreme sacrifice is an instrument of compensation,
For the sins of every one.
AND followed by a mystical resurrection,
To stun the people at large by His deed.
To observe the holiness of Good Friday,
Devout kneel with utmost reverence,
Before wooden Cross kept in Churches so holy.
Seven last words of Christ are too repeated,
So that HIS utterances remain carved,
In our memory lane for ever.
A symbolic burial of the Lord too is performed,
Different may be the methods,
Yet inner most welling of touching feeling is unparalleled,
For the Beloved Jesus Christ,
Who for Truth’s sake gave His everything,
So that we may be absolved of our sins.
