Aum Namah Shivaya advaitins

Praying to Lord of Vrindavan to fill our hearts with Bliss(Ananda) on His birthday.

Sharing a song to Lord Krishna by Sri Auribindo on the auspicious occasion.

At last I find a meaning of soul's birth
        Into this universe terrible and sweet,
I who have felt the hungry heart of earth
        Aspiring beyond heaven to Krishna's feet.

I have seen the beauty of immortal eyes,
        And heard the passion of the Lover's flute,
And known a deathless ecstasy's surprise
        And sorrow in my heart for ever mute.

Nearer and nearer now the music draws,
        Life shudders with a strange felicity;
All Nature is a wide enamoured pause
        Hoping her lord to touch, to clasp, to be.

For this one moment lived the ages past;
The world now throbs fulfilled in me at last.


                                      - Sri Aurobindo
