PROLOGUE

The Way a Bhakta seeks me, 
the same way he reaches me. 
For, everyone in every way follows 
my path in every sense!
- Bhagwat Gita Chapter IV Sh. (11)
 
 

EARLY DAWN

Fountains of love. 
For the Lord, 
Play

And pat the pool. 
A cool breeze blows 
and, diffuses the fragrance 
of flowers 
to soothe the soul: 
It calms down the confused mind 
and calls the cool! 
It's early dawn
Ripe is the time 
to merge with 
the glory of glories 
and forget, 
the mundane world!

It's early dawn, O, you golden oriole 
produce, the sweet notes 
to gladden our hearts;

Cordiality's a soothing breeze;
Brotherhood breathes balm.
