TEMPLE OF LOVE


Confessions of Krishna -9

Through your sublime prayers you reached my heart
With your love you conquered me
Through your smile you mystified my soul
With your affection you enchanted me

The pulse of your love reverberates in all my veins
The beat of my heart rhyme with your thoughts
There is no confusion of the suffusion of our love
When its fusion keeps the balance of the universe

With the same spirit that uttered 'AHAM BRAHMASMI'
I can say I am you, and you are me
You proved true love can conquer universe
By conquering me in totality

Here I can build a temple for you
Arrayed with the bricks of my flesh
Fused with the mortar of my blood
Ornate with the brass of my bones

Then I will make an idol of you
By carving it out from my beating heart
Where your reflection was always kept in gold
Till this day with utmost care

With all dedication and prayer I will worship
You with ‘bhajans’ of sublime love
By the soulful song from my musical reed
Till all my love will reincarnate in to you

When I make 'aarthi' with the holy lamp
Lighted with a thousand flames
Your face will be reflected with all its glory
Radiating magnificent love to attain my salvation

Yet all my worships never equal your adorations
And devotions which elevated me
To the celestial heights when
I, the reality, glow with YOU, the truth.

(This is an imaginary poem written as narrated by God Krishna to his childhood love Radha, to show how sublime and deep his love was.)

balance of the universe - Radha [Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity] is the power of Krishna [Vihnu, the supreme God].

'AHAM BRAHMASMI' - Sanskrit for ‘I am spirit’. 'I am God.' Famous phrase often repeated in the Upanishads. In this ecstatic statement of enlightenment, 'I' does not refer to the individuality or outer nature, but to the essence of the soul which is ever identical to God.

‘Bhajan’ - is any type of Indian devotional song. It has no fixed form. It may be as simple as a ‘mantra’ or ‘kirtan’ or as sophisticated as the ‘dhrupad’ or ‘kriti’ with music based on classical ragas and ‘talas’. It is normally lyrical, expressing love for the Divine.

‘Aarti’ - The Hindu ritual of ‘aarti’ accrues from the ancient Vedic concept of fire ceremony or the 'homa'. Generally, one or more wicks made of cotton, or thin cloth strip, is soaked in ghee or camphor, lighted and offered to the deity.

    This installment beautifully, eloquently explores the depth of love shared between Krishna and Radha. The epic tale you have penned conveys lovers who persevere through all life challenges. You have highlighted the unconditional, transcending devotion shared by Krishna and Radha. Their's is a pure, true and eternal love.
    I have learned much through your poems about Krishna. You're descriptions, explanations, tales and love are depicted in such a way that one would fall in love with their love irregardless of one's knowledge/familiarity of the tale.
    Bravo. Breathtaking. One could 'fall' into your work. (Report) Reply
