Honouring our guru

Regina, Saskatchewan

Last night we engaged in a celebratory event, Janmastami, in Regina, until 1:30 AM. After a good rest, I conducted a program to honour our guru, Srila Prabhupada. I had the good fortune to put in 10 kms on the road to a place near Horizon. Here is my offering of devotional sentiment to the guru.

You never did leave us

Your books contain your spirit

Your apparent departure

A myth without merit.

You are alive as ever,

Mortality has no place

For the voice of truth

Within time and space.

Your teachings bear power

Thrusting “real” enjoyment

And tightening controls

To sensual amazement;

They are for all times

Nothing relative

But relevant, teaching

The art that, “we give”.

No truth superior,

Science of the self

Most secret of secrets

Not to stay on ones’ shelf.

To live in this realm

Entities do cry

Deprived of peace

And Maya being dry.

Examining the real / surreal

What to conclude?

That life is constant?

The Force to include?

The cosmic clock ticks

Wearing us away

‘Til we look to sport

With Him and to play.

We thank you for that

All mentioned above.

There is no repay

For this genuine love.

We have you and Him

Making it all whole

Our final exam

Is to reaching this goal.

10.5 KM
