gajanan mishra

(3rd April 19sixty / Tikapali, Patnagarh, Balangir, Odisha, India now at Tapobana, Titilagarh, Odisha, India)

Desire is fire

Desire is fire
You can not extinguish
This fire by trying to fulfill the desire
You are to adopt different process there.

Desire is fire
This material world
And women are clarified butter
Don't pour on this blazing fire.

Give up all attractions to
Material enjoyment, my dear
And engaged yourself fully
In devotional service.

And attain perfection, my dear
Have patience, don't get anger.
