Befriending the mind, part 2 (25.4.16).



“Entering the
metro:
The bright lights
of the car
burns
at the fabric of
crouching nights
veil,
slanted eyes.”

A sparse
crowd
huddled before
phones,
ears plugged
with mundane
vibrations, or
games.

I become shy,
even before this
oblivious
gathering of
covered souls.

Ignore
mental conditions,
just write
for the pleasure of
guru and Gauranga!

This, then,
are my crow's signs,
recorded secluded
in the grove of
a backpack's shade.

There is a topic
on my mind,
and has been,
lately.

How to reinvest in
devotional service?

I feel that
in many ways
this is the essence.
This is the
positive mood
of the devotees.
To grasp the
moment,
and take a chance
on mercy,
and contribute something from the heart into the assocoation of the assembled Vaishnavas; to make them feel at home; to relieve them in times of distress or burden; to voulanteer, in service, an effort to help facilitate for the ongoing sankirtan mission of
chanting,
speaking,
and more than
anything,
living
the lifestyle of
inspiring others in
commitment on behalf
of Srila Prabhupada.

He has empowered
any sincere follower
to become
a spiritual master,
and lead fellow souls
to the lotus feet
of Sri Krishna.

This investement
then,
is worth considering,
is worth engagment
of energy and
soft consideration.

Challanges?

Are you kidding?!
Take a look at
the situation of
material life.
To fight the
right cause
you need courage,
and a benevolent
support structure,
the Vaishnavas.

I am again
reminded:

“Do not
take for granted
their association.
Lessons are to
be learned
in sadhu's sanga.”

It is a fact
of life.

The destiny of
any given person
is known by
Lord Gauranga alone,
with His associates.

This truth,
for sure,
commands
an emense power
of rock solid
welcoming
honesty.

That thing,
known as
love,
is a truely
rare gift,
in the specturm
of time,
and to pass up
such an opertunity
is certainly
bedazzingly foolish,
if not
heart rendering cruelty,
against Persons of
mind blowing
generousity.
