"Krishna must have such fun "
She said Jadurani Devi Dasi
She had never touched a cow before,
And now, in the fields
She is smiling as twelve cows
Nuzzle her and lick her hands
She is chanting the Name
Of her beloved Gopala,
And the cows gather around her
In a semicircle, watching, blinking,
Their heads brushing the pale green blanket
Draped over her shoulders
And she sings His Name
And her eyes say,
"Krishna is so beautiful "

Damodara das Adhikary (Dan Clark)


These waters speak of our Lord
they are continually descending down
as a man bowing
as a man bowing.
like a cup emptying.
Yet in reverence & humility
the fulfillment & recognition
as a man bowing
like a cup emptying
these waters run down from the mountains
into the sea
and speak of our Lord
for it is only by running into the sea
that the river never grows dry
it is only by devotion to the Lord
that a man never dies
Yet the river is without salt
and man without memory
but he has been remembered
from all eternity
indeed the cup cannot be emptied
from all eternity Neither can the cup be turned
upside down or right side up
for gravity clashes in other realms
and the river descends in praise
like a man bowing
bowing in His Love
