Peace and joy

I soared

I flew,

I touched the skies.

I spread my hands

and welcomed you in

I opened my heart

and made you sit.

I sit in peace

I revel in joy

Your name echoes throughout

Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna……….

We had wonderful Sankirtan in temple yesterday.  At the beginning I sat grudgingly for I was in the mood to hear some lecture and was not ready for sankirtan. But 10 minutes into the program and I felt so light and so peaceful. If just the name of the Almighty brings so much joy; I cannot even fathom what his actual presence might bring.

  1. This truly was such a beautiful post, which resonated so much with me. Yes, opening up your heart and soul to let the Almighty enter it brings so much peace, happiness and calmness to our minds and body, doesn’t it 😀

  2. How nice and simple life is when we are flexible. You were not in a mood and everything changed in a few minutes. God is great.

  3. It is the ambience that did the trick.As you had said in one of your posts,the shravanam,smaranam and bhajanam transformed you to get this great feeling.
