Krishna was born in the darkness of the night, into the locked confines of a jail. However,
at the moment of His birth, all the guards fell asleep, the chains were broken and the
barred doors gently opened.
Similarly, as soon as Krishna ( Chetna, Awareness ) takes birth in our hearts,
all darkness ( Negativity ) fades. All chains ( Ego, I, Me, Myself ) are broken.
And all prison doors we keep ourselves in ( Caste, Religion, Profession, Relations etc) are opened.
pierce a diamond first.
We are Lotus
My love for you
is no secret.
I am the grub
To your ichneumon fly,
To your sea,
To your gold
Heightening its effect.
Translated by Arvind Krishna Mehrotra.
