Bhakta Steven L. Schwartz: IF YOU LIKE OUR TUNING SO MUCH I HOPE YOU WILL ENJOY THE PLAYING MORE–RAVI SHANKAR
WHILE MY GEORGE GENTLY WEEPS–BHAKTA STEVEN–POEM

You were always there to promote a cause
Assisting a novice Prabhupada in New York City

He didn’t know the rules or any laws
By George’s side when he wrote, “My Sweet Lord” and “Isn’t It a Pity”

Startled by Harrison’s request to play the Sitar
Took hold of his hand, travelled to places near and far

With George on David Frost’s TV show, receiving a generous, “Bravo, Bravo”
Singing “Ride Rajbun” with Dhani and George, the frolicking rabbit, dancing to and fro

“Chant’s of India”, your masterpiece galore
Mantras from the Vedas, opened up our Hindu Door

It was your idea to relieve the people of Bangladesh
George put it together, “With a Little Help From His Friends”

You were the father of George’s 1974 Dark Horse Tour
Introducing the world to Indian Music, Ali Akbar Khan and Alla Rakha

How awe inspiring The Lord changed your clothes on 12/12/12
No doubt you will be honored tonight at Madison Square Garden

Nora Jones and Anoushka Shankar, your daughters
Your musical legacy they’ve already hardened
