Be Thankful

Circumstances of your birth were great,

Parentage, family, home – all of ideal state.


Mother always Tulsidas to quote,

Revered Ramacharitamanasa he wrote,


Blessing from above the elder brother,

Greatest well-wisher and steady protector.


Younger siblings to you ever so dear,

With such fortune why then the constant fear?


Sita and Rama daily you get to see,

Glorifying them happy you should be.


The most of this wonderful opportunity take,

Waste not a moment, fruitful this life make.


Painful poverty and disease you did avoid,

With difficult religious paths you never toyed.


Path of chanting holy names to you shown,

Choice is yours now, destiny you own.
