Best Poem of Narsinh Mehta

Vaishnav Jan To

Speak only as godlike of the man who feels another's pain
Who shares another's sorrow and pride does disdain

Who regards himself lowliest of the low
Speaks not a word of evil against anyone
Blessed is the mother who gave birth to such a son

Who looks upon everyone as his equal,
Lust he has renounced
Who honors women like he honors his mother
Whose tongue knows not the taste of falsehood

Nor covets another's worldly goods
Who longs not for worldly wealth (or fame)
For he treads the path of renunciation
Ever on his lips is Ram's holy name ...

I Won’t Let You Embrace!

I won’t let you embrace! I won’t let you drink the nectar from my lips!
Why are you so lustful, young one of Nanda?
I won’t let you embrace! I won’t let you drink the nectar from my lips!

Unstained is the name of our family you will only bring us dishonor,
Beloved of Laxmi, just stay away from me!
I won’t let you embrace! I won’t let you drink the nectar from my lips!

Once I see you, I feel like relishing you, love, tell me how am I to hold myself back!
