A Reservoir of Love

By Ananda Vrindavan Devi Dasi

——-

The Bhagavad-gita means

The Song of God

But oh how we forget to sing it

To ourselves and others

This song make the heart brave

As it makes its way

Into the heart of the soul

Which is connected

Since time immemorial to

The reservoir of original love

The essence of what we are made of

In our relationship with the supreme Beloved

Imagine a reservoir of love!

That’s where the Gita takes us

This Song of God, this song of love

Sip daily, and sometimes drink deep

And always share generously
