Janmashtami: Poems on Krishna


The landscape of a sacred river, which speaks of a story,
The landscape of the life of Lord Krishna,
Krishna, the God of truth and courage,
Krishna, the smile of every living self around,
Krishna, the sound of eternity  past lands,
Krishna the bearer of all that is sand and soul,
Krishna, the selfless warrior,
Krishna, an armorless sculpture, victory residing in his eyes,
Krishna the epitome of love,
Krishna, who lies in those remains deep down in the sea,
Krishna, past centuries residing in the hearts of millions,
Krishna, visible in the eyes of believers of his love,
Krishna embedded in the sound of every string, every rhythm, every breath of mine.
by Eshani


I bow to Lotus Feet, which gives me eternal peace
I am incomplete without your compassion
you healed my heart when it was thrown and shattered
you picked me up when I struggled to get through
you gave me hope when it seemed so out of reach
I am nothing without you

Where ever I go, found not alone
your glorious touch was always with me
Nectar drop of Gita feels presents of yours
O! my Lord Krishna show me the light on my path

your Flute stirs the Universal Consciousness
And Gita enchants the Transcendental Consciousness
O! Lord of the whole Universe, Omnipotent Master of all
Grant me a glimpse of Thyself, Be pleased to come and live inside me.
by Karunakar Saroj


That dark Dweller in Braj
Is my only refuge.
O my companion,
Worldly comfort is an illusion,
As soon as you get it, it goes.
I have chosen the indestructible for my refuge,
Him whom the snake of death
Will not devour.

My Beloved dwells in my heart,
I have actually seen that Abode of Joy.
Mira’s Lord is Hari, the Indestructible.
My Lord, I have taken refuge with Thee,
Thy slave.
by Mirabai             


Nothing is really mine except Krishna.
O my parents, I have searched the world
And found nothing worthy of love.
Hence I am a stranger amidst my kinfolk
And an exile from their company,
Since I seek the companionship of holy men;
There alone do I feel happy,
In the world, I only weep.
I planted the creeper of love
And silently watered it with my tears;
Now it has grown and overspread my dwelling.
You offered me a cup of poison
Which I drank with joy.
Mira is absorbed in the contemplation of Krishna,
She is with God and all is well!
By Mirabai
