Knowing What Is Important

From towards Krishna and Balarama going,

Wives the true potency of bhakti showing.


Husbands by their rituals too consumed,

That more important than God presumed.


Their precious rules not to forsake,

But wives on chance to feed to take.


Though in female forms, shy and not to boast,

Knowing in life principle important the most.


Higher Than Smartas

Smartas to rules giving respect,

Elevation through rituals to expect.


For them possible highest destination,

Heaven and beyond then liberation.


But devotion practice most resplendent,

On rules and regulations never dependent.


This truth wives of the brahmanas showing,

Feeding Krishna and brother, etiquette foregoing.
