Only He

by the doc

Age Group: Adult



I
In this Iron-age, Kaliyuga, which itself harbours all forms of evil, slyness and fraud, wherein most people are ones who are moved by either greed or hypocrisy, wherein all paths and options of God attainment have disappeared, where Shiva-Mahadeva, the God of destruction is in full activity - in all these, the ever-joyous God Krushna is my only refuge.

II
In this Iron-age, all pious and holy places too are infested and ruled by the most lowly sorts of people and have become places of sinful acts, sinful people have become unholy, ordinary mortals are confused and perplexed with the pain endured and faced by the few who dare to tread on the path of Truth – in all these, God Krushna is my sole, soul’s refuge.

III
In this Iron-age, where all pious pilgrimage places of India, like the banks of river Ganga, being crowded by sinful and lowly people indulged in debasing intentions and activities, wherein the divine form of Goddess Ganga has disappeared – in all these, God Krushna is my only refuge.

IV
In this Iron-age, where even those few who dare to tread on the path of Truth have become infatuated, lacking in discrimination, obstinate and rigid, due to their false vanity and pride, resort to prayers and pious acts and rituals, out of greed and hoarding, have become followers of sinful acts and sinful people – in all these, God Krushna is my sole, soul’s refuge.

V
In this Iron-age, Mantras – mystical incantations leading to God realizations, due to incomplete and improper knowledge about their use and their invoked deity (have disappeared) , wherein even Vedic rites, rituals and Mantras are found in people without any discipline or Yoga, wherein the philanthropic meanings imparted by these Mantras and their deities too have disappeared – in all these, God Krushna is my only refuge.

VI
In this Iron-age, all different doctrines leading to God realization like Yoga, Saankhya etc, fasting on Ekaadashi – 11th day of the Lunar fortnight, leading to attainment of God, all pious acts – like the Soma’s sacrifice etc. leading to self-realizations, wherein arguments filled with hypocrisy, rules and distorts all doctrines and teachings to suit greed – in all these God Krushna is my only refuge.

VII
God Hari, the remover of all faults and sins of the lowly Ajaamil brahmin by just one utterance of his son’s name Narayan, also similar to God’s own name; God, who still gives constant experience of His divinity to His devotees and pious saints, who reveals all His magnificence, importance and glory of His Leela to His chosen people – in all these God Krushna is my only refuge.

VIII
All the other Gods, bearing relation with Nature are themselves limited to Nature. Aksharbrahma – emancipation – self realization – is of limited joy-bestowing capacity, the Ultimate, ever-new, eternal sources of all and of joy is God Krushna. Hence Krushna is my only refuge.

IX
Bereft of all discrimination, patience, devotion or of pious-virtuous acts, also bereft of all the means to achieve the above mentioned, totally infatuated in all sinful and heinous acts, helpless, pitiable, miserable and lowly am I - in all these God Krushna is my only refuge.

X
God, the omnipotent, the All-competent, Ever-present, capable of all tasks at all times and of completing begun endeavours, protectors and the upliftment cause of all those who offer themselves to Him and remain under His refuge, God Krushna, to Him, I, Mahaprabhuji humbly request thus (as said previously)

XI
“Krushnaashraya” – This stotra or this hymn of praise, sung by whomsoever in the vicinity of God Krushna , may God Krushna be his eternal and sure source of refuge, thus has been blessed and said by Shri Vallabhacharyaji.
