Cheers to the Breath and Sudarshan Kriya

One fine morning, I woke up at Anjana’s house with a song in my head. I took a deep breath in and a couple of hours later, the song took birth. It came out in rap (or 'rapchick') style. I asked one of the best song-maker I knew, to set it to music and sing it (lyrics are below). Click That thing you do with your nose to listen to the song and please write to the classy Daniel Moss and tell him how you liked it.

That thing you do with your nose

Breathe Breathe Breathe away
To the rhythm of your soul
The solution to your woes
Flows right under your nose.

So get ready with you bows
And your red rose arrows
Love truly flows and grows
When you dissolve big fat egos.

Deal with life's highs and lows
Vanquish all your silly foes
Drown the rest of your sorrows
If only, You do that thing with your nose!

Love even they who oppose
That's the best of all mottos
He reaps as he sows
Says the wise one who knows.

Breathe Breathe Breathe away
To the rhythm of your soul
Its easier that licking your elbows
That thing you do with your nose.

The birds, the bees and all of those
Do their naughty things with close windows
And even when they doze
They still do that thing with their nose.

Very little poetry and some prose
Has been composed on blowing your nose
Yet the best pleasure nature bestows
Flows right under your nose.

You can dig into those cheesy tacos or sinful chocos
And yet shed those extra kilos,
If the discipline you impose
Gets you to do that thing with your nose.

When come calling the head honchos
Your paycheck can add extra zeroes
If in between the his and hellos
You disclose
You do that thing with your nose

Those that smartly used their nose,
The world labeled them weirdoes or psychos
Before long their glory arose
As they joined the march of the heroes

Whether you dwell in borrows or chateaus
Anyone from Librans to Virgos
Breathe in the fragrance of the rose
And do that thing with your nose.

So kick in to some new clothes
Plus add some attitude that shows
That nothing can shake those
Who do that thing with their nose.

Breathe in in let go go go…
Breathe in in let go go go…

I am the Libran and Bawa is the Virgo...
Goes without saying, I am inspired by all your comments;-)

Sneha said...

hi dinesh bhaiya,
this is sneha here..firstly very happy to know that u are a libran,because even i am one.and i felt very good when i read the poem first..but then later i sang the poem loudly in a rythm with a tune for the second time...n i enjoyed it even more..and the whole poem truely sums up all the values that we have been taught by u and bawa since the past 4 days.nad it will be all the good if we(i mean I).follow them with some discipline in life..and i can achieve all that i want and all that i desire..AND DEFINITELY MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE IN THIS WORLD.
take care
with lots of love n gratitude,

Wow Dinesh bhaiya
Finally, a post from you.
But ya it is worth wait ....but this doesn't imply that you got to write after ages. So please keep posting frequently.

You know what, I didn't realize that you have written this post till I read this line towards the end of this post...
"I am the Libran and Bawa is the Virgo..." which finally led my eyes to some more text a few inches below - 'Posted by Dinesh'...wow.

Breathe Breathe Breathe away
To the rhythm of your soul
Its easier that licking your elbows
That thing you do with your nose.

I think there's a slight mistake in this stanza, shouldn it be its easier than licking your nose?

And awesome Bawa! I didnt know you could write poetry. :-) :-)

The Thinker said...

Gonna listen to it on my Bose!

Sandeep said...

There is a mistake in the poem
"borrows" should be boroughs.

It deserves a good title!

1) Thrill of the nostrils.
2) The Nose blowers of Bangalore.
3) Ode to the Nose.
4) Depth of Breath
5) Prana Gan

Raghav said...

That was an amazing piece of song, I liked the way Daniel breathed music into it.Total Rapchick...i wonder how you guys manage to do so many different things.
