Making the Holy Name Something We Can't Live Without


Krishna close up
As we know
life depends
on eating
sleeping and
work to
earn so
we can maintain
our body--
in the same way
let's be determined
first by hearing
establishing a habit
of chanting and serving,
then conviction
coming to the point
of urgent necessity
to chant and sing
the holy names
serving the Lord
with his bhaktas
purifying our
waking up
from ignorance
ultimately to please
the real Lord
of our heart--
our very life
the heart of
our heart
soul of our soul.
Krishna playing flute
Coming to trust
the kindness of Krishna
in all circumstances
intending to help us
watching over those
who call upon
his name while
aspiring to be his--
our maintainer
loving friend who
gives us the vision
to see distresses
upheavals, reverses
as a testimony to
the blemished
ugly form
of matter with
an agenda
to teach us
our true shelter
or happiness
isn't the temporary
illusory, miserable world
but in his
loving service
and warm embrace,
O that Divine couple
Shri Shri Radha Govinda--
I aspire to make them
my air, water
and real nutrition.
