This is a poem I wrote for Swami's 33rd birthday, June 13, 2011. It seems appropriate to share this today for those of you who enjoy poetry, and especially "devotion to the Guru poetry" - like Mirabai for Krishna. Then... a video from Russia of Gurudeva Being "Just Love." like only He can radiate equally to all of us -Swamini Vishwalakshmianandama
Gurudeva Swami Vishwananda
Appearance Day 33, 2011
Oh, Beloved Gurudev,
The sun rises and sets in your beautiful smile
And unfathomable, deep, loving eyes
With eternity revealed,
Reflecting Heart Love Divine.
The Stars bow in gratitude at your feet each night.
Windows of time and opportunity for
Attainment of The Divine,
You continuously open in Loving Grace
For your devotees and disciples.
Blessed be the name of
Satguru Sri Swami Vishwananda.
Christ was crucified at 33 and still lives on.
Blessed be his name!
You, Beloved Gurudev, were crucified at 30
During that Mournful Autumn of 2008.
Likened unto the Disciples at the time of Christ
Most of us suffered and did not understand…
Until later. . . and this came only due to Your
Love, Patience, and Unity of Grace.
Thank you for the sacrifice, the Heart Love:
“Greater Love hath no one than one who would lay
Down his life for others.”
Today, you live forward
Forever in your disciples' heart of hearts.
And forevermore in the Heart of The Divine.
Happy Appearance Day 33!
If I sound like a contemporary Mirabai for Krishna,
It is Truth in my heart!
Your Devoted Disciple
