Without Krishna
it's like being deep asleep in a nightmare
with no inkling of how to get out.
So you act out the nightmare.

In Reality Krishna comes with a sword,
the Son of a prince, riding a white horse.
You just take Him in the Form of the Name:
HARE KRISHNA! and you're released from the nightmare.

Then you can begin loving service.

But who will give you that one Name?
Where is there such a dear friend
who will say it to you?
Oh you have to seek for him!
Look for him wherever he is and go there.
He is the Spiritual Master
who can open your eyes
from the darkness of ignorance
by His Divine Grace.
