Oasis Indunil Madhusankha All the living are a caravan caught in the sterile desert of suffering Embattled in the timeless sansÄ ric journey Sans a purpose, quite unaware of a way of crossing the desert The Buddha, the most fabulous of all teachers Now is in the oasis, having circumvented the barrenness Renunciation, as the Blessed One preaches, clears the path to the salvation, to the Oasis, located beyond the arid desert of suffering [This poem was first published by Lost Tower Publications in the international anthology of poetry, Journeys Along the Silk Road by Selected International Poets]
