For those who die in city of Kashi there is no fear,
Because Lord Shiva chants Rama’s name in their ear.
In this world many lives have been spent,
Space in bodies of cats and dogs the soul did rent.
Release from the cycle of birth and death is life’s aim,
Yet not from yoga, karma or jnana will freedom one attain.
Not even the demigods can distribute the fruit of mukti,
Nor can meditation do the trick, not even a siddhi.
For the Truth we search far and wide,
Yet within the heart He does reside.
Only the sound of His name one need take,
With love for it alone can rebirth one forsake.
Since Rama grants liberation, He is known as Mukunda,
But out of love only I worship my Lord, Shri Ramachandra.
