Oct 1 2007 My realization at no request
In executing any instruction one should try his level best, And Sri Krishna will certainly do the rest. For if not so then maya will be one's guest. Don't take chances, she is a tenebrous pest.

Mar 1 2007 Sonic Dissolution of Consciousness Cataract
I wrote the first draft of this one night while living in the Brooklyn temple, nearly 20 years ago. I was tossing and turning, unable to fall asleep, so I got up and went to the laundry room where this poem flowed like destiny onto paper.
Feb 21 2007 Snap Shots Of A Journey To The Holy Name
O Krsna, we have traveled and looked everywhere, but we found You while walking through a Madison neighborhood, chanting Your Holy Name. Krsnaâ€™s timing is perfect, bringing Srila Prabhupada to the West, at the height of its materialistic culture.

Oh Krishna! Glory to you and your name, Our fame lies in chanting your name, Chanting and chanting is our aim, Without that every moment is a shame

Feb 11 2007 Unshattered or Incomplete
Shattered, as a crystal glass dropped upon a temple's marble floor? Alas, my illusion is not so; it bounces, resilient as a ball onto a padded carpet...
Feb 3 2007 Hari Hari !
All must chant this whether in a dhoti or sari. You may worship Govardha as Giriraj or Giridhari. But whenever you hear these names approach the sound vibration quick be in a hurry.

Happy, happy New Year, I wish you, O my dear, Have a blissful life, Free from lust and anger. The enemies within, Which, cannot be seen, Are lust and anger, Those force us to commit sin.
Dec 17 2006 Poem on Bhagavad-gita
The following poem to Bhagavad-gita and Lord Krishna was written by Amado Nervo, the original is in Spanish and so, you will have to excuse any grammatical inconsistency. His work was published in the French language in France as well

Nov 9 2006 Sweet Lord of Lords
Dark roads that made me stumble Made my thoughts turn to You, Alas! that moment apart I fell back to my bad old ways. One wrong succeeded next fault, The sin of spiteful envy The sin of name and glory The sin of selfishness.
