BEST AVATAR

Mayapura, West Bengal, India



We honour the birth of Nityananda. My poem to remember him by is the following:



BEST AVATAR


He is indeed by far

The mercy avatar

For he bore the blood

During the love flood


As companion to Gaur

Life was ‘less is more’

Distributing a wealth

For everyone’s health


Committed to the name

And establishing its fame

He went from door to door

In the effort to explore


He went with Haridas

Many gains – no loss

With interesting reception

Prepared for any rejection


Jagai/Madhai, there in queue

The two loud obnoxious two

Met more than their match

When Nitai did dispatch


Totally drunk as hell

They swayed, they fell

Nitai had a thought

“These men shall not rot


They should be given a chance

To sing and to dance

To the ultimate sound

With head up, feet to the ground


If they do succeed

That’s all we need

Gaur’s mission is won

To home we will run”


Unknowing such a plus

The two nasties raised a fuss

Struck the head of Nitai

As if to say “Goodbye”


But Nitai did stand up

Told Gaur not to chop

The thugs’ lives to spare

Hearts turned then and there


The two lowly drunks

Practically became monks

Like a victorious Skanda

Credit to Nityananda



–By Bhaktimarga Swami
