The Chariot of Jagannatha moves

Etching on its way the beautiful landscape- the pixelated cities with mountain of lights

Surging under the vast canopy of an overladen sky        Sri Caitanya Maha Prabhu with Lord Jagganatha

Hands raised illuminating the sun

The body’s swirling movement invoking the phases of the moon    Sri Balaram and Sri Krishna

And the dance regenerates life

Fluting ethereal vibrations through the membrane gateways

Honeyed by the sound of the conch across the spiral galaxies

Time is a figure distilled by the thoughts

A motionless poise is an entry to temple of eternity

There mind exits and flowers sail over the body

Making it the garden of surrender

Graced by the transcendental eloquence of the para-brahman

It is the source that you ought not seek            Maha Lakshmi

Seeking is the falsehood that duality promises

namnam akari bahudha nija-sarva-shaktis
tatrarpita niyamitah smarane na kalah
etadrishi tava kripa bhagavan mamapi
durdaivam idrisham ihajani nanuragaha

 

 

Jagganatha Subhadra and Balarama

Lord Jagannatha, Mother Subhadra and Lord Balarama (R-L)

In a state of bliss the chariot moves without moving

Chanting frequencies of cosmic love

That mysteriously dawned upon the human brain

Centering at the heart

Childlike and innocent

It may read the scriptures backward in time

Or, may look at the tears of shooting stars

In a playful forest of singing damsels and gods

Reach out for the hand that touches you from within

The peace bestowed is everlasting and green….

Jay Jagannatha…….

OM MAA……

-J
