Great Is The Wealth Of Bhakti... - Poem by Narsinh Mehta

Great is the wealth of Bhakti found only on the earth,
Not found even in the realms of Brahma!
By living a virtuous life, even if you attain
The land of immortality, you will inevitably end up
In the inexorable cycles of birth and rebirth!
Great is the wealth of Bhakti found only on the earth,
Not found even in the realms of Brahma!

Those who love Hari long not for the ultimate release,
Instead, they desire to be born over again
To sing forever, to dance forever,
To celebrate forever and to gaze forever at Nanda's darling!
Great is the wealth of Bhakti found only on the earth,
Not found even in the realms of Brahma!

Blessed indeed is the soul born in land of Bharat
And sings the praises of Govind;
Blessed are his parents for he alone has made his birth a success!
Great is the wealth of Bhakti found only on the earth,
Not found even in the realms of Brahma!

Blessed is the land of Vraj, blessed is his eternal sport,
Blessed are the people of Vraj as eight magical powers
Wait at their doorsteps and Mukti becomes their maid!
Great is the wealth of Bhakti found only on the earth,
Not found even in the realms of Brahma!

Shanker and Shukajogi know the taste of this nectar,
So do the girls of Vraj, says Narsinh, who relishes of this nectar.
Great is the wealth of Bhakti found only on the earth,
Not found even in the realms of Brahma!
