about

One should know perfectly the Personality of Godhead Śrī Kṛṣṇa and His transcendental name, form, qualities and pastimes, as well as the temporary material creation with its temporary demigods, men and animals. When one knows these, he surpasses death and the ephemeral cosmic manifestation with it, and in the eternal kingdom of God he enjoys his eternal life of bliss and knowledge.

lyrics

Material energy is lifeless and inferior
eternality is conscious and superior
nature can be only be overcome
by knowledge of God
and the temporary system
we need the wisdom of the transcendental
that when put into practice becomes experiential
to ignore the wise is only detrimental
when we're sentimental
or speculating with the mental
we remain averse
that is our curse
converse and converse
about the universe
but before the hearse
makes our body disperse
its better to immerse in the loving
diversity
supremely
the personality
and all His energy
the complete form
which is beautiful and warm
adorned with all decoration
bliss and wisdom
full variation

sambhūtiṁ ca vināśaṁ ca
yas tad vedobhayaṁ saha
vināśena mṛtyuṁ tīrtvā
sambhūtyāmṛtam aśnute

To be ageless and deathless
the research is debated
but it sounds to me
like a check that's post-dated
'cause everywhere we look
we see six stringent laws
things are born and they grow
then they maintain and transform
then deteriorate and finally dies
one who is wise knows nothing survives
when connected to material
time is a serial
killer
so develop the ethereal
we should know perfectly the personality
He goes by many names, Kṛṣṇa, Rama, Sri Hari,
we should also understand all that is temporary
distinguish His external and internal energy
when one knows these
we surpass the external
go deep in to internal
realize the eternal
all the knowledge we need
full of bliss
no more greed
because we'll have all we want
when we're finally freed

sambhūtiṁ ca vināśaṁ ca
yas tad vedobhayaṁ saha
vināśena mṛtyuṁ tīrtvā
sambhūtyāmṛtam aśnute

Transcendental vision
self-recognition
our actual position
make a decision
to take word from the wise
open our eyes
to the boundless skies
where love is the prize
it's not about heaven
and it's not about hell
it doesn't even matter
whether or not we fell
if affection
isn't your direction
then do some reflection
time for introspection
Sri Kṛṣṇa
can only be approached
by unalloyed devotion
He cannot be poached
by the mystics tricks
philosophical tactics
fruitive work
because desire is mixed
you might reach heaven
and you might reach hell
but if you don't reach the spiritual
you're still in a shell
the shakti of bhakti can satisfy
so let the motion of devotion
be your wings and fly

sambhūtiṁ ca vināśaṁ ca
yas tad vedobhayaṁ saha
vināśena mṛtyuṁ tīrtvā
sambhūtyāmṛtam aśnute
