Happy Birthday, My Love

Sab kuchh main tum,
Sab kuchh ho tum, Krishna.
Tum main bhi main,
Main bhi hun tum, Krishna
Bas tum hi tum,
Tum hi toh mere Krishna.

My lord • my beloved • my best friend • my partner • my confidant • my guide • my protector • the love of my eternal existence — Lord Shri Krishna — Happy Birthday 🎂 to you. 🙏

We are, and forever will be, eternally thankful for you to come to our dwelling and walk this earth. For the thought of breathing the same air as you once did, makes this land a little bit more heaven, and this life little more magical for me. For without your birth amongst us mere mundane mortals, we would be devoid of the ultimate truth and the ultimate knowledge that came from your own heavenly voice — Srimad Bhagavad Gita ❤️

‘The word Krishna is composed of the root ‘krish’ meaning ‘bhu’, the shelter of all existence, and the word ‘na’, meaning ‘nivriti’ or the form of supreme bliss. Combined, they form the word Krishna, which signifies Param Brahma, the Supreme Absolute Truth.’ The word Krishna means ‘self-existing bliss.’ The Vedanta has desined this as anandam brahm. He is that ras (anand or bliss). One who drinks that ras, become full of bliss.’ In another sense, the word Krishna means ‘krish’ – to attract (karshan) and ‘na’ – giving bliss. The one who attracts all and give them bliss, and who is blissful Himself, is known as Krishna.

In other words, Krishna means ‘all attractive’ and ‘all-bliss-giving’. He cannot be all attractive without being superexcellent in everyrespect. When He exhibits His aspect of being smaller than the smallest, Krishna is known as Parmatma. When He exhibits His aspect of being greater than greatest, He is known as Brham. Then again, reconciling both His anu (microcosmic) and vibhu (macrocosmic) natures and accepting a medium-sized Form, Sri Krishna performs wondeul pastimes of infinte variegatedness. Knowers of the truth call that non-dual, absolute knowledge tattva- the Absolute Truth.

This non-dual knowledge is referred to by the words Brahm, Parmatma or Bhagavan. The word Brahm signifies the largest (Brihattva); Parmatma , the smallest (anutva); and Bhagavan, the all opulent (Sarvaishvaryamayatva: possessing all riches, all strength, all fame, all beauty, all knowledge and all renunciation). In other words, this encompasses the largest, the smallest, the middle and everything else in existence. The word Bhagavan reveals all the different aspects of the Absolute Truth. The gyani experiences that non dual tattva as Brahm, the yogi realises Him as Parmatma and the bhakt sees Him as Bhagavan. Bhagavan manifests infinite pastimes in infinite Forms, among which Sri Krishna is His original Form (svayam rupa)

My love, you have been my light, my darling, my strength, my everything…who has helped me swim this awfully tempestuous stormy life. And you make it easier to rise above the mundane and help my soul see the magic and the secrets of the universe. You exist in every fiber of my being, in every fragment of my consciousness. You are my inner voice and you are my guardian. I see you and feel you everywhere and in everything around me. Thank you for constantly helping me evolve. You make me a better person and a wiser soul. And for that and everything else, my love, I love you more than any words can ever express.

May the world around us be forever blessed with your consciousness as you have blessed me, and so many others. This will help us to become a better person, a better world. And we shall learn more love and more compassion. We shall be more united and more tolerant. And we shall be one amongst each other and with you, O sakha!
