My soul wanders in search of things it could not name Yet returns to the cave of comfort at dusk everyday Seldom, it ventures into the wild, leaving behind limitations and norms Going far beyond what the mind allows and society deems to be right And on those days, The soul returns with treasures, that put sapphires and diamonds to shame!
So, ShriHari is Soooooooo Beautiful! Right! So much that no one can really say how much! But the mind always needs to describe the glories which couldn't actually be described. This poem is just a funny one, where the mind tries to justify that beauty, justify those features, he is stupefied by that beauty and out of madness tries to justify how this might have came into being. He says that the Moon dyed itself with colour of sky, rather took that colour on itself and the Sun seeing that new dye, making the Moon, Moonlit Blue(Shining Blue) melted the Moon, the melted blue Moon then fell on the Beautiful Lord, Since Moon is visible in night, so the dark night accompanying the blue moon which fell on ShriHari reflected on him, giving him a dark blue complexion. Then there came another Moon, and a Sun, as his eyes, and a thousand lotuses became his smile. But the mind is now confused how shall it justify those roses on his cheeks(rosy cheeks)? A million Suns became his crown. And his jewels are treasures of Ocean he derived after Samudra Manthan(Churning of Ocean) that is Shri and Kaustubh(here no justification is needed, these were actually derived after Samudra Manthan), which always shine on his chest. Now his dark, thick locks, they seem like necks of Ananta(Sheshnaag) which are as if encircled around the garlands of Vrinda(Tulsi), (ShriHari's Tulsi Mala on Head) The Van Mala and Angvastram, rest on his chest and caress the Queen Shri on his chest ❤ The striking yellow as bright as lightening is his clothing. And in the end, the mind loses for there are infinite more attributes of ShriHari, how shall he justify all of them? Or anyone can? Continuously praising and beholding which is the pastime of wise and blessed!
Jaya ShriHari! Jaya ShrimanNarayana!
