My dear mind, please remember Lord Shyamsundar

Each sunset is reducing the duration of life
Do not waste this precious human form
Do not let this opportunity slip away 
which comes only after numerous other lives
and is fleetingly short in this age of Kali
My dear mind, please remember Lord Shyamsundar 

Just like a fruitless tree is considered impious 
A temple without a deity is of no use 
A pandit without the Vedas is pandit in name only 
And the sky is empty without the moon 
This life also is purposeless without the holy names
My dear mind, please remember Lord Shyamsundar 

Giving up all Pride about your temporary possessions
Giving up the lust for enjoying independently from the Lord 
Giving up the greed to accumulate perishable assets
Giving up the Anger born due to material misconceptions
Giving up the attachments to the fleeting relations of this world 
Giving up the illusion of being free, while being shackled by Maya
My dear Mind, please remember Lord Shyamsundar 

Taking the Lotus feet of Sri Krishna to be the only shelter 
Realising him to be the only true maintainer and well wisher
The only companion to stay with us even after the body perishes 
Knowing him to be the master and the proprietor of one and all 
Developing pure loving attachment to him and him alone
Serving him in one's cherished mood following his eternal associates
My dear Mind, please remember Lord Shyamsundar
