Vrindavan, 20.08.2012


Monsoon humidity.

Rehydrate and 
Ventilate. 
The fan, 
Always the fan 
Is going 
In the background. 
You don’t notice it 
Anymore, 
Until you switch it off. 
Amazing silence. 

For that Krishna conscious 
Perspective, 
Srila Prabhupada
Would sometimes use 
The fan analogy: 

(In my own words) 

“When you switch 
Off the fan, 
Still it will 
Rotate some time, 
Even when 
Unplugged 
From the electricity. 
Similarly, 
We may take up this 
Krishna consciousness 
Process, 
We may unplug the 
Fan. 
Still, material desires 
And conditionings 
Will linger for 
Some time, 
Due only to the 
Power of the rotation 
In the cycle of 
Birth and death.” 


The silence 
Of the fan 
Gives the realization 
Of the real 
Noise 
Of the fan in 
Motion, 
Which you never 
Seem to notice 
While under the 
So called 
Ventilated state 
Of being forced 
Between 
Perspiration and 
Rehydration 
In the humidity 
Of this monsoon like
Reality 
Of material relativity.
