Chant and be happy. - A poem.
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada! The above namely chant and be happy is the title of a poem I would like to share with you. Here it is:
Chanting will make you what you want to be;
And Srila Prabhupada introduced this in Tompskins Square Park, by a tree!
In this evil age;
Chanting will make your life turn a new page.
Practice sankirtana and adapt your life to devotional service;
And you won't be stressed out or feel nervous.
Do Deity worship, eat mahaprasadam and read about Krishna;
And even be as chaste Bheesma.
Radha, the gopis and Krishna have a rare attraction;
but not like movies called "Fatal Attraction."
Dharma and the call of duty as a devotee is the special point;
And that is what Srila Prabhupada wanted to drive home as his salient point.
Respect and follow devotional life;
Even families-husband, children and wife.
I am no authority but I have just gathered these facts from hearsay.
Please feel free to comment if you find any faults in the contents of my poem.
