Japa Poem

First you learn of your
relationship with Krishna,
that you are the eternal servant.
From the theoretical stage you
take up eternal service, in the
chanting of the maha-mantra.
When it is done with attention
and devotion, only then you
reach the goal, reciprocation
in love of God.
Under the guru’s order
you pass through these stages,
otherwise you remain
stuck in the prison house
of the material nature
unaware who you are
and who is Krishna.

From Viraha Bhavan #144
