BHAKTI-LOVE AMBROSIA PART VIII

  • CHAPTER II – DELECTABILITY

KRISHNA:

Karma is humdrum grind and Jnana a long
exacting wait. Yoga is discipline
of mind and muscle. But Bhakti is a song
of love and dance in drenching rapture rain.

Bhakti is better than the other soul
Searching methods. There’re no two steps, O belles
in pure Bhakti: effort and fruits. It’s goal,
it’s path and it’s the deliverance as well.

The fruits of Karma are the volatile
heavenly joys that last until don’t rot
those drupes. Conceit and vanity defile
the path of Jnana, making tough his trot.

In Bhakti there’s no Saadhana, no will,
no skill…it’s just a dip in purest love…
that’s all…you listen to the cosmic trill,
see light and feel like swing’ng on tranquil bough.

Jnana is ultimate, some say. But pious
Bhakti too burns the wick of wisdom light
in heart, destroys desires, silences chaos
and leads towards the niche of sweet delight.”

An infant prince goes missing in the woods,
lands in a hermitage, let us assume;
becomes a saint and thinks he’s from sainthood.
Yet fact remains the he’s from royal womb.

When comes to know his blood and real forbears,
peels off the saffron cloths, leaves hermitage
and dumps serene manners, to show new airs
and flairs akin to royal lineage.

Likewise O dames you’re veiled by false
identity that you’re just blood and flesh.
Tear off that pall and shun the sensual calls
to fast reclaim your natal home, afresh.

A man goes on some business to far
away domains. But lo, though moves aloof;
his home is home, awaits with doors ajar
to give him rest and peace under it’s roof.
