THE STRANGE SUPPLICATION

No Aunty dear, you need not wail
Nor smothered by worries as said

I will come to your succour, 
No matter where you live, or when you call 
For anything, or for anyone 
To prove that I am 14Asrita parijata.

That Krishna, thou proved times umpteen 
But the call for help comes from men 
Only when they are confronted by forces of Satan 
In misfortune alone they realise your existence 
So, grant me interminable
MISFORTUNE O Krishna, 
To feast my eyes with thy 15divyamangala rupa 
That very sight purges all impurities known and unknown 
Turns me a 16Chakora longing for the sight of the moon 
Or the lotus for the Sun, or first cry of the babe by mother 
Or communion of the 17Jivathma with the 18Paramatma.


Glossory

14. one who readily grants boons to the seekers... 
15. auspicious form ...
16. a mythological bird fed on the rays of moon only ... 
17. the individual soul 
18. Universal soul...
