Reflections on the Guru, on Prabhupada’s Disappearance Day

PhotobucketIt is likely that most disciples of Prabhupada remember exactly what they were doing when they heard the news that indeed Prabhupada had “left his body” or departed this world for the spiritual plane or Goloka. As the death of our mother and father is a kind of initiation or rite of passage for everyone, when one’s guru leaves the planet, it calls for a new birth--and an unexpected, difficult one, as it ushers in a another stage of life.

Coming to Krishna and Finding a Way to Stay the Course

Soul taking off body close up

I
Those on the path of bhakti remember
when they first heard about Krishna(!)
when events unfolded before and after
they tried to make this path theirs—
and even if you are new to Krishna,
someday you may gain insight as
to the significance of these days.

For me, looking back
repaints the vision
of an amazing, magical time
in my then turbulent, unhappy life—
in the thick of it, questions,
lacking perspective and answers
I was compelled
to search for life’s purpose,
it seemed the most natural path
unfolding with direction
as I only looked forward,
never to go back.

The Land of Faith

Evolution of Consciousness
In the material ocean
of ignorance and suffering
all souls float helplessly
unless they receive
help from above--
Plants and animals
can only follow
the narrow confines
of instincts for survival
while human life
is like parole from prison
offering a way out
the chance to rise above
mere existence,
to understand our
soul and God--
if we can overcome
the animality of sensuality.
