Poem for Jan 26


Radha-Govinda reciprocate with me.
Radha-Govinda, I can see You again.
The closed-eyes japa and headache
are over, and You are gathered
with the family of arca-vigrahas.
(Lord Nrsimhadeva was added today,
moved up close for darsana.)
You two are especially at the center of my worship,
but I need Srila Prabhupada and Lord Caitanya
to approach You, and Lord Nrsimhadeva to
protect me from evil thoughts. You two
are the Original Couple,
the Cause of All Causes
and Govinda’s love-giving potency,
the topmost madhurya rasa.
I approach You as a humble servant,
and You reciprocate with me
by Your glances, Your gestures,
Your saintly forms, and by Your
attractive dress. Sankarasana das
is here. We will ask him
to clean You and change Your outfits
two times during his visit.
Three offerings a day are
being made to You of sattvika
foodstuffs in stainless steel trays and cups.
We pray that You
are satisfied in Your relationship with us.
I am grateful You reside with us in Viraha Bhavan.
