My Preferred Abode

Newborn enters the world, where to play, what to do?

Find field where grass always green and sky always blue.


Many days for me around this field already revolved,

Now settling on my permanent home of consciousness evolved.


Where is such place, where time and space having no effect?

A field with the most beauty and charm for thoughts to direct.


The glories of Shri Rama now my preferred abode,

Living in works of Tulsidas, in every poem, in every ode.


From strength of love for Rama produced poems many,

I desire no other home, nor riches, nor delights, not any.


To where his poems are read, to where they are honored,

May I always live there, Rama’s glories remembered.
