BHAKTI-LOVE AMBROSIA Part X

CHAPTER III – INITIATION

GOPIKA:

O Krishna we see your lovely face, we hear
your voice, accept your naughty deeds and lies
and look into those petaline eyes sans fear.
Aha, we’re lucky girls, got godly prize.

O dear, our love for you is natural
and our distaste towards the worldly life
is natural. Is it but possible
in Kali eon, the age of pain and strife?

We have you here, among the lay cowherds;
so naïve, singing with us those idyllic tunes,
and spilling often these esoteric words.
Can Kali’s people have such grand fortunes?

KRISHNA:

O girls, kindness and empathy are true
facades of Bhakti shrine. Such great concern
for posterity not all can have, but few.
Aho, you’re Bhakti’s tall phenomenons.

In the next eon, vice reigns and virtues wane.
Kali, the devilish despot destroys
all pools of love, augments the bane of pain
and sin, and lures the hum’ns with dirty joys.”

Then common folks struggle between belief
and quandary; between knowledge and doubt.
Their despondence leads them towards great grief
and live till end of life in Maya’s clout.

No need to get despaired O damsels smart.
I’m already there in every human soul
as burning light and like a roughhewn bort…
ready to sparkle on their path to goal.

It’s true, the people need someone to show the way,
and strong initiation…something like
kindling the sleeping ember by blowing away
the soot and like building a bridge on dyke.

An Acharya of true wisdom, who dips
and swims along the course of spiritual streams;
the one who keeps drinking the cosmic drips
and whose oneness with me is without seams.
