Krishna's Prayer by Kunti


"Srimati Kunti said: O Krishna, I offer my obeisances unto You because You are the original personality and are unaffected by the qualities of the material world. You are existing both within and without everything, yet You are invisible to all. [18]

O Hrisikesh, master of the senses and Lord of lords, You have released You mother, Devaki, who was long imprisoned and distressed by the envious King Kansa, and me and my children from a series of constant dangers.

My dear Krishana, Your Lordship has protected us from a poisoned cake, from a great fire, from cannibals, from the vicious assemble, from suffering during our exile in the forest and from the battle where great generals fought. And now You have saved us from the weapon of Asvatthama. [23-24]

Sri Krishna is the intimate friend of Arjuna. He has appeared on this earth in His transcendental body, which resembles the bluish color of the tamala tree. His body attracts everyone in the three planetary systems [upper, middle and lower]. May His glittering yellow dress and His lotus face, covered with paintings of sandalwood pulp, be the object of my attraction, and may I not desire furtive results.[33]

On the battlefield [ where Sri Krishna attended Arjuna out of friendship], the flowing hair of Lord Krishan turned ashen due to the dust raised by  the hoofs of the horses. And because of His labour, beads of sweat wetted His face. All these decorations, intensified by the wounds dealt by my sharp arrows, were enjoyed by him, Let me mind thus go unto Sri Krishna.[34]

In obedience to the command of His friend, Lord Sri Krishna entered the arena of the battlefield of Kurukestra between the soldiers of Arjuna and Duryodhana , and while there He shortened  the life spans of the opposite party by His mereiful glance. This was done simply by His looking at the enemy . Let my mind be fixed upon that Sri Krishna.[35]

When Arjuna was seemingly polluted by ignorance upon observing the soldiers and commanders before him on the battlefield, the Lord eradicated his ignorance by delivering transcendental knowledge. May His lotus feet always remain the object of my attraction.[36]

Fulfilling my desire and sacrificing His own promise, He got down from the chariot, took up its wheel, and ran towards me hurriedly, just as a lion goes to kill an elephant. He even dropped His outer garment on the way.[37]

May He, Lord Sri Krishna, the Personality of Godhead, who awards salvation, be my ultimate destination. On the battlefield He charged me, as if angry because of the wounds dealt by my sharp arrows. His shield was scattered, and His body was smeared with blood due to wounds.[38]

At  the moment of death, let my ultimate attraction be to Sri Krishna, the Personality of Godhead. I concentrate my mind upon the chariot driver of Arjun who stood with a whip in His right hand and a bridle rope in His left, who was very careful to give protection to Arjhunas chariot by all means. Those who saw Him on the Battlefield of Kurukestra attained their original forms after death.[39]

Let me mind be fixed upon Lord Sri Krishna, whose motion and smiles of love attracted     the damsels of Vrajadhama[ the gopis]. The damsels imitated the characteristic movements of the Lord [ after His disappearance from the rasa dance].[40]

At the Rajasuya-yajna [sacrifice] performed by Maharaja Yudhisthir, there was the greatest assembly of all the elite men of the world, the royal and learned orders, and in that great assembly Lord Sri Krishna was worshiped by one and all as the most exalted Personality of Godhead. This happened during my presence, and I remembered the incident in order to keep in  my mind upon the Lord.[41]

Now I can mediate with full concentration upon that one Lord, Sri Krishna, now present before  me because  now I have transcended the misconceptions of duality in regard to His presence in everyones heart, even in the hearts of the mental speculators. He is in everyone s heart. The sun may be perceived differently, but the sum is one.[42]
