about

Those who are engaged in the worship of demigods enter into the darkest region of ignorance, and still more so do the worshipers of the impersonal Absolute.

lyrics

The Absolute personality
is eternally free
Sambhuti is He
who is independent absolutely
not dependent on anyone
for His life force
He makes the map
gives directions
and sets the course
He is the source of all powers
not really pantheistic
for He preexisted the demigods
great sages and the mystics
sounds far out
but have no doubt
His presence in the universe
is seen throughout
need to realize that
everything emanates
from the lowest of the low
to the greatest of the greats
even though one is endowed
with a great power
it's hard to understand the absolute
with limited brain power
have to follow the path of love in action
a fulfilling interaction
can't be found in an abstraction
free from fleeting distraction
that leads to dissatisfaction
based completely on the law of loving attraction

andhaḿ tamaḥ praviśanti
ye 'sambhūtim upāsate
tato bhūya iva te tamo
ya u sambhūtyām ratāḥ

A strong desire to aspire
for intense sense gratification
makes us worship money
and the gods
to switch our situation
the results of this temptation
a temporary creation
that lowers our vibration
in the ultimate calculation
but if we make an exploration
of the best destination
then we find a state of mind
in extreme exaltation
so what you waiting for
don't be satisfied with hovering
make your jet plane soar
to the spiritual plane
where there's eternal bliss
and eternal life
eternal knowledge
that's what exists
if we deny existence
before we explore
no doubt there'll be resistance
as our method is flawed
but if we sincerely
observe our own tendency
then we see
that love is the key
to who we be
not dry philosophy
or mental speculation
but exchange of emotions
is the highest aspiration

andhaḿ tamaḥ praviśanti
ye 'sambhūtim upāsate
tato bhūya iva te tamo
ya u sambhūtyām ratāḥ

Vast and unlimited spiritual sky
Goloka Vrindavan is the most high
Kṛṣṇa dwells there with his eternal friends
and still permeates the universe
although He transcends
situated in one place like the sun
but emanating light on everyone

andhaḿ tamaḥ praviśanti
ye 'sambhūtim upāsate
tato bhūya iva te tamo
ya u sambhūtyām ratāḥ
