Geeta Saar (Essence of the Geeta)

(English)


WHATEVER HAPPENED WAS GOOD
WHATEVER IS HAPPENING IS GOOD
WHATEVER WILL HAPPEN WILL ALSO BE GOOD
WHAT HAVE YOU PARTED WITH THAT MAKES YOU CRY ?
WHAT DID YOU BRING WITH YOU THAT YOU HAVE LOST ?
WHAT DID YOU CREATE WHICH IS NOW DESTROYED ?
WHAT YOU HAVE TAKEN, YOU HAVE TAKEN ONLY FROM HERE.
WHAT WAS GIVEN WAS GIVEN ONLY FROM HERE.
WHAT IS YOURS TODAY, WAS SOMEONE ELSE'S YESTERDAY, WILL BE SOMEONE ELSE'S TOMORROW.

CHANGE IS THE LAW OF THE UNIVERSE

I think so, and we don't do enough to rehab prisoners or treat their mental health and medical conditions sometimes.

Yes, without a doubt! This must change for the better! (So glad about DNA testing, BTW!)
