Constantine P. Cavafy-Poems





 ΕΤΣΙ ΠΟΛΥ ΑΤΕΝΙΣΑ
 
 
Την εμορφιά έτσι πολύ ατένισα
που πλήρης είναι αυτής η όρασις μου.
 
Γραμμές του σώματος. Κόκκινα χείλη. Μέλη ηδονικά.
Μαλλιά σαν από αγάλματα ελληνικά παρμένα
πάντα έμορφα, κι αχτένιστα σαν είναι,
και πέφτουν λίγο, επάνω στ’ άσπρα μέτωπα.
Πρόσωπα της αγάπης, όπως τάθελεν
η ποίησις μου…μες στες νύχτες της νεότητος μου,
μέσα στες νύχτες μου, κρυφά, συναντημένα…
 
 
 
SO MUCH I GAZED
 
 
So much I have looked at beauty
that my vision is filled with it.
 
Contours of the body. Red lips. Sensual limbs.
Hair as if taken from Greek statues;
always beautiful, even when undone,
and falling, a bit, on the white brow.
Faces of love, as my poetry
wished them…in the nights of my early manhood,
in my nights, secretly, met…

Quotes on Gita :‘If one reads Bhagavad-Gita very sincerely and with all seriousness, then by the grace of the Lord the reactions of his past misdeeds will not act upon him’Lord Shiva to Parvatidevi, Gita-Mahatmya.

No other philosophical or religious work reveals ,in such a lucid and profound way, the nature of consciousness, the self, the universe and the Supreme. I will shall read (Youtube Link Attached) and write Gita verses from the book “Bhagvan-Gita As It Is” by Swami Prabhupada everyday.

Bhagavad Gita – Chapter 2- Verse 14-15

Chapter 2 – Contents of the Gita Summarised

Text 14 – O son of Kuntī, the nonpermanent appearance of happiness and distress, and their disappearance in due course, are like the appearance and disappearance of winter and summer seasons. They arise from sense perception, O scion of Bharata, and one must learn to tolerate them without being disturbed.
