Quest of Christ

My Quest of Christ

A Constant Thirst

Has helped in Many Ways

To Differentiate between 'Wrong & Right'


HIS sayings a Delight

To Fight every Plight

For seeking 'The Truth' always

An 'Inward Journey' he preached outright


To be in the vicinity of 'Divine Light'

He said against vices in 'True Sense' Fight

Of his Sermons to get a 'Simple Gist'

The need's to see through 'Imaginary Mist'


't was from the 'Good Shepherd'

Meaningful Quotes we Heard

Imbibed & Inculcated in our Lives

Sure to make us 'Unique in a Herd'


Now 'Have you seen God' ?

Some so called learned & Seekers Ask

And all his life the 'Master' said

Just Peel off your 'Outer Mask'-


They say He'll come again

A matter of Time to 'Reappear'

This from those with 'Knowledge of Fear'

For the Knowing the Lord's always Near....


It's the search 'Within'

That'll make us 'Realize'

We are all but a part of 'HIM'

    Some are born fools. Some people assume themselves as fools. But all have the wisdom to recognize the right and wrong. Few accept wrong for momentary benefit. You are wise to the right. God bless you.

    Wonderful, marvelous, awesome, can't get words to comment Sir RB. I have just memorized in my skull that you have the earlier archives too. Went through them and too good my guru.

    As a token of appreciation, I can come and directly hug you on my next visit to your footsteps.

    A fantastic poem on Jesus the only true crucified Savior and needs to be presented for an award if there arise a context.

    God bless.

    Dear Lavina....
    A Child when he is born does not belong to any religion. He does not know whether he is a Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Sikh and what other religion have you!We teach him accordingly and that he starts belonging!A Child is always innocent till the adult corrupts him and brands him! Real Masters, Real Lords, Real Gurus for that matter never preach any religion!
    Remember Christ's golden saying?
    Be innocent like children to enter
    the Kingdom Of God? For the same
    The moment we think Masters like Christ, Krishna, Nanak Dev and Prophet Mohammed do not I repeat do not belong to any 'RELIGION' we have arrived!!!!!
    My sincere regards to you and all others here who have really understood and tasted the sugary
    gist of what's written here through me.
    The Lord bless all....

    hey bhandarkar , i liked the way you mended your words , a kind of 'oxymoron' type by giving it parallel meanings. and also giving it max meaning by keeping less words. i really appreciate the hard work behind it . Jesus is more of a religious figure , a historical odyssey , whose message was universal brotherhood. There is no other account in the history of self resurrection other than Jesus that shows he is immortal and living God. its interesting to know among saints only st Francis Assissi comes very close to him and often termed as second Christ , who was humble , gentle and spread love. he is one of the saints respected by even Muslims for his role in crucade times as a peacemaker. Papa francis took his name that shows urgency of Jesus message in this world amidst materialism , capitalism and extremism.

    Thanks for your inspirational poem , Mr.Bhandarkar. So much that you have conveyed in a few lines. I particularly liked every fourth line in the poem which seemed to hit the nail straight on the head – coming to the point without mincing words.

    After reading I started thinking about the real meaning of Christmas. “The birth of Jesus changed the course of history profoundly and manifestly. His message of love, mercy and compassion, truth and justice, human solidarity and freedom, has inspired some of the most progressive individuals and movements in human history. Yet the event of his coming was inauspicious. There were no earth-shattering natural herolds, nor human proclamations to welcome Him on the day. Life in Bethlehem went on normally as poor. Mary and Joseph went around looking for a room in an inn to stay. And finding none, they settled for a lowly manger, and there Jesus was born.
    But from the child born in this lowly place was to flow the knowledge of the Supreme Creator, the grace of healing and the compelling message of salvation for the entire world. This is why Christians see the birth of Jesus in the flesh as the miracle of all miracles. Those who believe in His word and abide by His teachings have the assurance of everlasting life after death.
    Beyond thr festivities, however, Christmas 2013 challenges Christians and all people to reflect, as always, on the spiritual, moral and humanistic values and ideals put before them in the life and teaching of Jesus Christ. These values and ideals include the pursuit of truth and justice, option for the poor, humility as a way of life, the sacrifice of self for the good and welfare of others, generosity with one´s talents and resources, and above all a life saturated with love.
    This is Christmas, a new beginning and a wonderful time.

    Best regards

    Quest of Christ in mortal life is the thirst for truth, way and life eternal
    If we cannot see the sun, then how we can see the shine of its Creator
    The infants can digest and survive only with the liquid, diluted, light food

    Almighty God tried through several of his men to teach to live his wish
    Neither they understood and changed life, nor did respect messengers
    Finally God became man to live with humans to teach them how to live

    Christ is the redeemer not only of a community but for the entire humanity
    Love and attraction of this world lead to reject and ignore joyous heaven
    Satan is the human elected ruler of this world, gathers souls for hell fire

    Christ offers no free visa to heaven but only directs to attain its eligibility
    Life in this world is like the momentary time spent in the examination hall
    The result which determines the fate of individuals’ rest of life in this world
