• "Here in this world there are thousands of newspapers and magazines reporting the stale, repetitious happenings of this limited space. So for reporting the news of the unlimited spiritual realm, concerning the eternal, ever-fresh Supreme Personality of Godhead, we could publish a newspaper at every second, what to speak of daily."

Ekendra Das' Service Journal

Categories: Journal

Here's a blog that I started a while back and am just getting around to posting in. The idea was to keep track of whatever I'm doing and thinking. I'd imagine that this might end up being quite personal and potentially controversial as my thinking goes. We'll see ...

Begging For Gopala

Your feet are soft like lotus
body black like monsoon cloud
Your form sweet sugar candy
that can melt hearts of the proud

Your feet tinged soft and pink
marked with all auspicious signs
oh when will You reveal them
to attract this wretched mind?

Gopala! Gopala! Gopala! Gopala! Gopala! Gopala! Gopala!

You gave such love to Putana
despite evil intent
please can this lowly beggar
have at least as much consent?

You chop off demons’ heads
suck their life and bifurcate
some devotees may feel squeamish
but Gopala you’re just great!

Gopala! Gopala! Gopala! Gopala! Gopala! Gopala! Gopala!

Pleasing your devotees
is your favorite thing to do
so please just let me serve them
so more pleasure comes to You

I’m begging for your mercy
because my mind is like an ass
so please reveal your sweetness
to this low Ekendra das :(

Gopala! Gopala! Gopala! Gopala! Gopala! Gopala! Gopala!

:)
