Shedding Tears

From ecstatic kirtans to hear,

Murtis affectionately shedding tear.

 

From the mind is this made,

In illusion, by the eyes betrayed?

 

No, to happen one can certainly believe,

Deities always happy for devotion to receive.

 

Know that efforts for Krishna wasted not,

Sometimes even tears from Him to drop.

 

Pure Affection

How to explain in way to know for sure,

Devotion to Supreme Lord, spotless and pure?

 

From ancient Ramayana one way take,

Comparison that Shri Lakshmana to make.

 

Fish taken out of the water like,

When God no more in their sights.

 

Feeling of beloved wife Sita too,

From being away just a moments few.

 

Fish Out Of Water

“Like a fish out of water” famous expression,

In an odd place, like stranger the impression.

 

Know that in bhakti-yoga same also found,

Explaining those who to devotion bound.

 

Lakshmana to brother Rama once said,

Of Himself and Sita, when to forest were led.

 

Describing love for Him spotless and pure,

Without bhakti, devotee can’t survive for sure.
