Kurukshetra

O Kurukshetra
Field of war
Grand arena
Fate in store
Dismayed Arjuna
Help implored
Unto Sri Krishna
O Supreme Lord

O Kurukshetra
Sacred ground
Place of dharma
Most profound
Song of Krishna
Truth resounds
For prince Arjuna
Shelter found

Hear Arjuna
Spoke the Lord
Learn of Ishvara
In all control
Know the atma
Spirit soul
And Prakriti
The material

Jiva-Souls
All eternal
Lord Sri Krishna’s
Part and parcels
Reincarnating
Into the carnal
But die never
As body mortal

Not for the living
Nor the dead
Do the wise feel grief
Nor lament
Fixed in knowledge
Vedas read
Equipoised
They remain instead

Understand
Eternal time
Activities
Those that bind
That which frees
Frees the mind
Frees the soul
For all mankind

Take up yoga
Life’s perfection
Jnana-yoga
Perfect wisdom
Karma-yoga
Perfect action
Dhyana-yoga
Meditation

Know thy dharma
Innate position
Accepting guru
With conviction
Free from Maya
 World’s illusion
Take up Bhakti
 Pure devotion

Rise above
The modes mundane
Nescience, passion And good – the same
It is pure goodness
One must attain
For entrance to
The spiritual plane

Be purified
Of enemies Hate, Anger, Greed
Lust and Envy
 Stand and fight
 Be a yogi
Self realized soul
This is Buddhi

Know I am
All Divinity
 Know all beings
Are in Me
Soul Supreme
In everything
I am the Absolute
Reality

As the cause of all
Worship Me
As the end of all
Sacrifice for Me
As the friend of all
Believe in Me
At the time of death
Remember Me

Surrender
Unto Me alone
All religions
You may forgo
Have no fear
I’ll take you home
To Goloka
The highest realm

This deepest secret
Sovereign
In whom Bhakti lives
I proclaim
In bliss supreme
For they love Me
As I love them

Greatest knowledge
Once concealed
Bhagavad-gita
Truth revealed
Now delivered
And most revered
Sacred scripture
Of all sincere

O Kurukshetra
Sacred ground
Place of dharma
Most profound
Song of Krishna
Truth resounds
For the earnest
True Love found
