Against Time

Losing battle against time to wage,

Body now aching more with age.


So much already transpired,

Left bewildered and feeling tired.


Still a hope there is for you,

The beautiful one of bluish hue.


With flute standing and smile showing,

The cure for your troubles He’s knowing.

Cold In The Summer

Welcomed is the summer heat,

But still cold sitting at your seat.


Since that one you have forgotten,

Constant despair has begotten.


Let His heat shine in your heart bright,

He whom effusing Brahman’s light.


Going past and His beautiful form see,

All-attractive and full of sweetness is He.

Easy To Lament

Just as it comes then it goes,

How long to stay no one knows.


Though for occupying things considerable,

This world both temporary and miserable.


That thing of permanence just find,

And then keep it always in mind.


The one the life of everything living,

To Him your full attention now giving.

Etiquette in Questions

If from distinguished one you hear,

From challenging spirit steer clear.


Not that to follow everything blind,

But of proper etiquette keep in mind.


Vaishnava from authority speaking,

Faith with original texts keeping.


If the same you too know,

Then politely question so.

Shiva and Krishna

Superior is one to the other?

This cause of friction from one to another.


Why on this point fight?

Instead in their relationship delight.


Shiva always chanting Rama and Hare,

That he’s greatest devotee authorities say.


For demons playing the demigod role,

But know that a higher place he holds.
