“Bells of Consciousness” by Kumari Mini Yadav is a wonderful collection of poems that can lift anyone’s mental and spiritual wellness. The book offers 20 unique, slightly connected but totally independent poems. From inspiration to life lessons to gratitude to deep cogitation – the collection has all.
The collection commences with “Light” – it is indeed a lovely poem on love and loneliness. In fact, by reading it you may get the feeling that the poet’s hunch is true about love.
“In this lonely life
Searching the light of love
The darkness of loneliness
Sees no tunnel
Fighting every day with hope
It does get
The poet is right in depicting that in search of love one becomes a traveler or wanders here and there as it doesn’t come so easily. There is an era of loneliness before it strikes you stealthy in full bloom.
Each poem is followed by a saying of Paramahansa Yogananda and a beautiful illustration. The second poem “Crow” draws inspiration of gratitude in life from a thirsty crow. “Dream” is also one mesmerizing poem on the values of dream. In this poem, the spiritual side of a dreamer is explored.
In fact, the sayings of Paramahansa Yogananda before each poem provides a slight gist of the upcoming poem. At time, sayings are terrific and influential than the actual poems. Yet, the poet made great efforts to level up the intellectual side of a poet with the sayings of that great soul.
The collection is abstract but related to life lessons. At times it’s about faith, next moment about face. Yet it can be gauged that the poems are soothing to soul. All the poems are fresh and give hope for a purposeful life to its readers. The poet did a great job by smearing a sense of spirituality to this collection that can feed any healthy subconscious.
