Eternal Light

 

 

“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” – Reinhold Niebuhr

 

 

 

The word Sandeep derives from Sanskrit — Sana, which means eternal and Deep which means light. So the meaning of the name is most accurately translated into Eternal Light. Daily chanting of Vedic mantras reveals the illuminated path — the path of positive mental attitude. It gives him the strength, courage, and determination to see the world, as a whole. And, he journeys on this illuminated path, where there is nothing but pure bliss and happiness. However, he does have a tendency of flying off the handle but he follows Aristotle’s pure thought: “anybody can become angry – that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way – that is not within everybody’s power and is not easy”.

“Poets are all who love, who feel great truths,
And, tell them; and the truth of truths is Love” — P J Bailey

Even though Sandeep means Eternal Light, this light can be characterized by the glow that illuminates or the glare that obscures. This depends on who is looking at the light — a friend or a foe. Nevertheless, it is said that everything is extraordinary in the right light, at the right time, to the right degree. Somehow, in Life’s Journey, with the help of his SOUL, he became a creative writer (poet). He’s talented and embraces a very deep loving nature.

“Love is the most terrible, and also the most generous of the passions; it is the only one which includes in its dreams the happiness of someone else” – Alphonse Karr

 

 

 

 

Sandeep N. Tripathi is known as a man of great integrity and character. He is well versed in life’s joys and sorrows. He has always reached out to help others — whenever, wherever and however possible. People confide in him and rely on his judgment. He’s a great observer; and, an extremely good listener.

“I am not concerned that I have no place
I am concerned how I may fit myself for one
I am not concerned that I am not known
I seek to be worthy to be known” — Confucius

Aside from being a bright individual, Sandeep is a highly versatile individual. Every experience, no matter how great or small, has molded him into the current state of being. He possesses the ability to solve problems more realistically and methodically while having the potential to excel in anything (almost). He is a quick thinker, quick-witted and comprehends life’s challenges wondrously. He connects the dots, by making use of his intelligence, to solve life’s mysteries. It’s a learning process exemplified by a change. John F Kennedy said – “change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future”.

“For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it
For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it
For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it” – Ivan Panin

Writer / Poet

 

 

“Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!” – Dr. Seuss.

 

Author Review – The following is an independent review(s) of the author, Sandeep Narayan Tripathi. It provides important information about the author’s intentions and the scope of the work. It delves into the author’s style (formal or informal) and whether or not it is suitable for the intended audience. A review engagement is conducted to provide limited assurance that the material presented (reviewed) is above par. A review presents a reasonable basis for expressing limited assurance that no material modifications are necessary whereas an independent in-depth evaluation can lead to quite a revelation. This “does it make sense” analysis is useful when the author seeks much more than a limited assurance, in other words, a higher level of assurance. Not all reviews are synonymous but they do provide a level of comfort to the informed reader(s). Even an in-depth evaluation, by and large, can vary from reviewer to reviewer.

“Sandeep Tripathi is an American poet whose origins draw deeply from the Sanskrit tradition. Since the beginning of counted centuries, Sanskrit and Vedic poetry has been a foundation of expression of both spiritualism and the sciences in Indian literature and music, and is known for its profoundly existence-connected words. This is a new and powerful poetic voice that talks about universal themes like love, faith, human encounters, and a lot more. There is a beauty that comes across in the simplicity of style, the symbolism that comes through the beautiful diction, and the philosophical tone that pierces the darkness. There is depth in most of the poems, and the author allows his humanity to come through each poem very clearly. The descriptive word usage not only captures the intellect, but it also creates a bridge of transfiguration, where readers experience the expressions and see from the poet’s point of view. Not many writers can pull off such a feat. This poet is among those who are skilled enough to deliver such a potent read”

“While most poets inspired in this movement use religious imagery to express their words, Tripathi fuses the traditional, transforming God into a force of Nature, and his certain passion for Western and Modern poets, and produces poems that have their own resonance. In a heartfelt and intriguing work, with each poem Sandeep draws the reader into his dark journey of the soul through love’s perils and joys. His poetry is very powerful, often leaving you with something to think about. The poetic expressions in the beginning of this book flowed elegantly and purposefully. I smiled as I read line by line. The imagery was easy to follow and such a delight. ”

“With some almost verging on American lyrical form, such as A Poetic Letter, a Bob Dylanesque piece that speaks to anyone in romantic conflict, Tripathi uses the skin of his verse to communicate a deeper pool beneath for the reader to discover (a few words suggest a realm past and relationships fractured). Other times, poems venture into a post-Beat form, such as the Basquiat- reminiscent.”

It’s all about love, love and love. And, in order to love “love”, one needs to understand love.

“Errors, like straws, upon the surface flow; He who would search for pearls, must dive below.” ― John Dryden, All for Love.

Poetic Pearls

 

“In life, growth is imminent. And, growth without change, is unthinkable. And, to make the unthinkable thinkable, new roads need to be carved out by way of old ones. The old stands tall and firm and befriends the new to fall into place, with refined maturity and greater understanding and cultured admiration. It’s simply pure Magic.” — Sandeep N. Tripathi
