The <st1:place w:st="on">Krishna</st1:place> Verse

(Written in Agni verse, the Indian fire god's meter, which is 3 lines of 8 syllables, and which is said to be the most sacred of meters.)

<st1:place w:st="on">Krishna</st1:place>, the black one, is now blue,

Eighth incarnation of Vishnu,

Love/wisdom visiting anew.

His uncle said, kill him at birth,

Switched for a girl, he’s kept on Earth,

Fostered, and yet to prove his worth.

Raised by a cowherd family,

His beauty created much glee,

Flute played, village girls on his knee.

A trickster and lover sublime,

Instigator of knowledge fine,

Protector of all sacred sign.

He killed his uncle, became king,

Humor and peace then on the wing,

The yoga of devotion sing.

He’s Vishnu in physical form,

Resting on coiled serpent’s the norm,

Never sleeping, Lakshmi keeps warm.

Good and evil, usually matched,

Sometimes the dark side’s door’s unlatched,

So Vishnu returns, the roof patched.

Buddha was ninth incarnation,

Kali will be tenth creation,

On white horse, to great elation.

Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, the team,

Create, preserve, destroy, the theme,

Ensuring balance on life’s beam.

Brahma’s the source of day and night,

Vishnu’s mercy and goodness site,

Shiva’s wind, to raise change’s kite.

<st1:place w:st="on">Krishna</st1:place> devotion’s yoga taught,

Aspirant’s contact with God sought,

To dock your ship in union’s port.

To Deity, the shortest way,

Faith, knowledge, love, defeat decay,

Known and knower together lay.

Maya, life’s background illusion,

Lila, play with no delusion,

Adventure to make God’s fusion.

A façade’s the normality,

Unity, is reality,

So move beyond banality.

The body’s a small universe,

Veiling power, ego rehearse,

Connection lets us reimburse.

To cross the bridge, your mind suppress,

Me and mine’s clothing to undress,

The sweetest taste is not careless.

Philosophy in daily life,

Highest ideals reprogram strife,

Tantra yoga to sharpen knife.

Achieving desirelessness means,

Intense desire, that way leans,

Infers paradoxical teams.

Expand awareness in all states,

Identify what complicates,

The most refined life satiates.

They’re always matched, rest and movement,

Static, dynamic improvement,

Shakti/Shiva has paid the rent.

To seduce, full moon and flute played,

Divine connection, man and maid,

To worship, bliss and treasure trade.

Guiding Arjuna in battle,

Gita teaches men aren’t cattle,

The first complete yoga’s rattle,

From physical turmoil retired,

Killed when a hunter’s arrow fired,

The current age of Kali sired.

<st1:place w:st="on">Krishna</st1:place> was beauty’s avatar,

God is the mast, love is the spar,

Love and wisdom will travel far.
