The meaning and the motif of all games and sports.
Here some glossary is given to understand the poem. The poem extends to all games and sports.
Vishaya = object of the senses
Maya = illusion
vasanas = mental tendencies, acquired during the experiences of all previous births, for enjoying sense objects.

                                                

What is the use of playing a cricket match?

Listen to the Nath Yogi's immortal cricket match.

To play this one requires no money

Nor does one require things any.


Renunciation, character and contentment are the three wickets

That Nath Yogi enjoys as he protects,

External and internal controls are the two bails

While protecting them Nath Yogi never fails.


Standing in the crease of Dharma

Nath Yogi strikes with the bat of Karma.

Behind the stumps the wicket keeper is ego

Wearing the gloves of vasanas acquired long, long ago.


Maya is the bowler who bowls,

Expecting him to do fouls.

Vishaya is the ball

Maya throws for all.


Here too, six balls are in an over,

Fielders get no chance to cover.

The rest nine players are there

To catch him out everywhere

Or run him out anywhere.

 

The true Guru is his coach,

With surrender, Him, he does approach.

Here no match can be fixed

Nor with egos can results be mixed.

Time and truth are the two umpires

But he plays without desires.


Know, this world is the playground.

Peace and bliss surely surround

The winner who makes the runs of devotion.

It is very hard to believe my clear notion.


Innumerable Perfect Beings are the spectators

Who are eager to cheer at and welcome the victors.

Natha Yogi’s cricket match thus I brief

By winning which you will have no grief

And surely you can pass from mortality to immortality.


 

(Dedicated to my Guru's lotus feet)
