(ON 18th APRIL 2014)

Amongst all Fridays’, the most Holy,
Call it a Good Friday or a Great Friday,
No strings attached whatsoever for us all,
A day long penance and fasting observed without fail,
This Day is commemorated as an anniversary,
Of death of our beloved & revered Lord Christ,
This Day’s purity remains for a commoner or a priest.

A Day which we reminisce,
When our beloved Lord Jesus Christ,
Offered himself on the Cross,
Without even a slightest emotional upsurge,
Peaceful & compassionate while in real life passage,
And serene whilst embracing death by hapless.
Underwent crucification and ultimate surrender,
On this Day – to our common Creator!

Suffering for us – relentless pangs combined with humiliation,
A holy death indeed for our redemption,
His supreme sacrifice is an instrument of compensation,
For the sins of everyone of us on this earth.
AND then followed by a surprise resurrection,
Thus stunning the people at large by this revivification.
Methods may differ of observation,
But the holiness of Good Friday remains above par,
Devout kneel with utmost reverence, they pay,
Before wooden Cross kept in Churches so holy on this day.

Seven last words of Lord Christ are too repeated,
So that HIS utterances remain engraved,
In our memory lane forever and ever.
A symbolic burial of the Lord too is performed,
Differences may be in the methods,
Yet inner most springing of touching feeling is unparalleled,
For our Beloved Jesus Christ,
Who for Truth’s sake gave His everything,
So that we may be absolved of our sins.



It has been seen that the incarnations of our Creator had to endure trials and tribulations in their life time 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humans to see how best they withstood onslaughts of those who opposed the very idea of departure from their pseudo and outdated beliefs. While reforming the masses, the messenger of our God faced umpteenth obstacles from those who opposed their ideals. 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. After their earthy sojourns they were accepted as the Messengers of God by one and all. This is the tragedy of humans that we do not recognize His Messengers/Incarnations while they are on this planet but when they are no longer with us then we take them as their revered ones!

Lord Jesus Christ is one example amongst others like Prophet Mohammad, 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 during the periods on this earth. In that process these Sons of God had to face opposition. People who mattered suspected these and they had to face trials and tribulations. During the life time Jesus Christ did everything to rid the then society of the evils prevalent and wanted to change the outlook of the people.

Jesus agonized on the cross for us all. We should never forget that He suffered so that we are redeemed of our sins that we as humans do commit. There were quite a disturbances after he gave up his spirit.

Crucification of Jesus Christ gave a new meaning of life to us humans to follow. His ideals and preaching are held dear by us all and will remain so till eternity. May this Day remain etched in our memory as the day of redemption of humanity and He remain a beacon of light for all of us on this earth.

GOD is very compassionate with us in every way, need is to use those blessings which are the results of His bounties and thank Him for everything that He gives us. We should also share these bounties with our fellow-beings. I am the person who loves God and His Creations. I love my Creator and not fear Him. My children are adjusted to life, incommensurate, to their Karma and destiny. I have served as a Sr CGO for about 38 years in a Central Govt. Presently I am serving as an Adm Offer with an Engineering College. I am a spiritual person with liberal ways of thinking. I respect all the religions as I respect mine since I understand that all the religions are the pathways to a SINGLE ENTITY - paths for connecting with Him may be different but the ULTIMATE SOURCE IS ONE. I want to be a student till last day of my life. I am a homeopath also, which I pursue as a social service only. Happy moments, I take as God's Gifts, sad ones I take as His Test for me. I believe that He will surely assist me in this Test of His, come what may. Really. I have more belief in Him than I am on my own. You can comprehend my philosophy in life from my write-ups which I write while interacting with them. I firmly believe that every person has the special characteristic which other fellows cannot have and I respect that person as such.

    1. Thanks a lot for your most inspiring comments. It is quite an education itself. I shall visit your blog time and again.

      Thanks and regards

  1. As you pursue the path our Lord Jesus the Christ walked, may you realize that He is the only Son of God, the Redeemer, the only and true sacrifice for our sins. Jesus Christ is the Savior of all people who come to Him, confess their sins, and repent of them. Those who accept Jesus as their Savior and Lord will enter into heaven for all eternity when they die.

    There have been many prophets come and go, but only one Savior and Redeemer… That is Jesus the Christ, the only Son of God, our Creator. Only through Him does one enter heaven. Do you know Him? Do you have a relationship with Him? Do you love Him? I hope so!


    1. Praising Jesus who is the way, the truth, and the life!’
      why not? He gave supreme sacrifice for us all and why we should not remember Him for what He did for us all.
      For me we have to be sincere. I have complete reverence for Lord Jesus Christ – the Son of God and a redeemer and saviour of us all. When I contemplate on Him I get the luminosity but it is with sincere prayers with no negativity attached with it. And if on the way if there is any distraction from the path then I introspect on that distraction and mend my ways. Pray Him for pardoning me for the waywardness and then proceed with a positive frame of mind.
      I consider all the religions different pathways. These teach us the same principles – pious ones leading to our LORD.
