one

would keep out

of

it
either

way

being
no

kind

party

to the populist of all

things

who
knew

one would stop
that

nonsense from this

very

perspective

of
base
refusal

owned

owned and owned
the

base

refusal
is

owned

and one and you the

imagined

one we have

to
talk
to

you

dare

to
call

it impersonal what

a

fool protect yourself

at
all

times

yes by the

grace
of

sadhu

shastra

guru

how

can
one

imagine

being
protected

at

all
times
one

has

known
the

base

refusal

is owned yes

but
but but not

so

well kept by

those

imagining
it

as
impersonal

no
we
are

not imagining it at all

dear
we

are

taking
it

very
seriously

yes

we
are

dear

in
fact

taking
it

personally

in
every way one

can

possibly imagine it
dear

yes

dear

here we go
here

we

go

again

now

taking it personally and wanting

to

chant Hare Krsna

for
fun

besides

all

that

nonsense

is

gone
for

all

intents

and purposes isn't
it

fun

to

make
it

up

again
though
in

a

way
one

is

a
little

you

know

fussed

over

making
it

up

to
one

all

the time dear

yes

dear
i

know

what

you mean when
you

say
i

am

too

making it up

to

one

dear

i
want

to

make

it

up
to

you

really i do but you

are

not the only

one
dear i am

the

one that told you so

after

all

you

remember

only
what

one

has

to

be mindful of
when

speaking

like
one

leaving

dangling

participles
all
over

the place like

this

yes

like

this

is

next and kind

of

gay by the
old

standards of terminology you know

yes

now

a

days

one

thinks of being

gay

like a new
man

or

strange
bed

fellows
in
a

way

you

know

what i am
saying
dear

yes
dear i want to chant Hare Krsna too by
the
way
and
feel
different

like this as it is

getting

to

be

that way you
know what i

mean
it

is

getting

to

be

strange

the way we stop and
start

up

with

all
that

nonsense

stuff
defeating

it

and defeating only

to

just

go
on

and

chant

Hare
Krsna anyway because

well

because
there

is just too

much of it

going

on

really

it
is

like it is

fun
made
up

just

for
kali

yuga

and
well

what

else

can one do

but
chant
Hare

Krsna anyway i love to

chant

Hare Krsna with
you

dear

and
it

has

been

awhile

wouldn't you say
since

we

had
the

time

of our lives
you

know

what

i
am

saying the greatest
one

was
the

one
we
did

all

over

yes

all
over
we
did
celebrate
rathayatra in all
the

three

worlds

really all the

ones

known
to

be

frequented

by

all

the
best
ones
having
fun

like Narada muni

yes

we had a great time celebrating rathayatra

all

over
again

never

mind

why
this

is different we had the

time
of
our

lives

and
we
went
for
it

like

nobodies

business yes that
was

the way of

it
there

was

no

other

way to get

it

done

you
told

me

so and i couldn't be

bothered

arguing with you
dear

none
of

the

hangers

made

a

bit

of

difference to us

in
general

the

hangers

on

were out of it sad

to

say
yes

sad

that

is

what
you
used

to

say
but

no

one can see

that
from an airplane

now

dear

no

we are gone
for

all

intents

and
purposes

we
split

so

anyway

that
was the time

of

our
lives

and
this
is

different
i

mean

to
say

that

was
then

and

this
is

next really taking

this
back
even

further you have

to

go now and do your

duty

as a man

of

God
you

have

got
to do all

you
can to protect yourself from

appearing

impersonal towards those who care

to
have the time

of

their

lives

celebrating rathayatra on
behalf
of

one

they
love

to

be
having
so

much

fun

around and so
be

it
feeling
happy

for

dangling particples notwithstanding

man
i

hope

you are going

to

be

alright

you

know

it

is
lousy in kali

yuga

but
hey

you
know

how
it

is
we

got
through

it all still
even

having
fun

as

we
kind

of

got

through

it all without

each
other
they

can

get

through
it all too with you

or

without you dear

tell
me

do

you love them now that

is
all

i

really
want

to

know
you

are
afraid
of

loving me no

doubt

and

that

is

perfectly

understandable dear i
have

been

hard

hit and things

often

ricochet hard off

of

hard
hit
ones you know

yes
you

know
the

way

i

was

at times and why dear

yes

why
there

is

no
change in the

heavy

weather pattern so

to

speak
as
we

will

chant
this
sound

of

Hare Krsna anyway
no

doubt for a

very

long

time

yet
before

we
ever
have

the
time

of

our lives again

dancing

and

chanting
nicely

just

for

fun
but

there

is

hope

hope

springs
eternal

and

yes
when

you

think

of

chanting

Hare Krsna anyway well you know

eternity

isn't
everything

but

it's

close

enough
i

mean
it

is

everything that takes

so

much
time

really
even
if

no

one

really

wants
to

get

everything

out

of
all there is

time

means

time
no

matter

how

much

money you are

about

to

make
out

of

being

on

time

in
your

own
little way no

one

can
do

better

yes

no yes no
yes

no

one
can

do

time better than you dear even as

this
takes

time

no

one
is

better

at it than you eh yes no yes no
matter

what
it

is
you

take the time

to

chant Hare Krsna
anyway

as

if

dangling

participles
are

a

real
fun
problem
even
yes

you

do you kind
of

look

funny

that way though
weird

yes

i

wish you would

have

chanted Hare Krsna nicely instead

of just chanting Hare Krsna anyway dear

it
is

not
my

imagination
of
course

but

yes

there

you go again

chanting

Hare Krsna anyway like we
will

never

have
the

time

of our lives

like

this

dear

and

the

word

is
out no one

is

having
any

fun

like

this

in
fact

no

one is having any of

it

like
this
chanting

the

Hare Krsna mantra

anyway

no
we

don't

want
to just chant

anyway

we
actually
are

tired
of chanting Hare Krsna anyway

now

and

there
is

a better way to chant that is

no

doubt the only
way

now
yes

a better way to chant Hare Krsna

with

you as it is time for us
yes

time to have
the

time
of
our lives chanting Hare Krsna

again

now

with

regard
to

raga-marga as Thakura Bhaktivinoda

offers
the
following

prayers to Sri Narasinghadeva in his
Navadvipa-bhava Taranga:

e dusta hrdaye kama adi ripu chaya
kutinati pratisthasa sathya sada raya
hrdaya-sodhana ara krsnera vasana
nrsimha-carane mora ei to’ kamana

Within my sinful heart the six enemies headed by

lust perpetually reside, as well as duplicity, the
desire for fame, plus sheer cunning. Residing at the
lotus feet of Lord Narasingha, I pray that he will

mercifully purify my heart and give me the desire to
serve Lord Krishna.

kandiya nrsimha-pade magibo kakhana
nirapade navadvipe jugala-bhajana
bhaya bhaya paya yan’ra darsane se hari
prasanna hoibo kabe more daya kari

Weeping, I will beg at the lotus feet of Lord
Narasingha for the benediction of worshipping Radha
and Krishna in Navadvipa, perfectly safe and free

from all difficulties. When will this Lord Hari, whose

terrible form strikes fear into fear itself, ever

become pleased and show me his mercy?

yadyapi bhisana murti dusta-jiva-prati
prahladadi krsna-bhakta-jane bhadra ati
kabe va prasanna ho’ye sa krpa-vacane
nirbhaya karibe ei mudha akincane

Even though Lord Narasingha is terrifying toward

the sinful souls, he offers great auspiciousness unto

the devotees of Lord Krishna headed by Prahlada
Maharaja. When will he be pleased to speak words

of compassion unto me, a worthless fool, and

thereby make me fearless?

svacchande baiso he vatsa sri-gauranga-dhame
jugala-bhajana hau rati hau name
mama bhakta-krpa-bale vighna jabe dura
suddha citte bhajo radha-krsna-rasa-pura

He will say, “Dear child! Sit down freely and live

happily here in Sri Gauranga dhama. May you

nicely worship the divine couple, and may you

develop loving attachment for their holy names. By

the mercy of my devotees, all obstacles are cast far

away. With a purified heart, just perform the

worship of Radha and Krishna, for such worship

overflows with sweet nectar.”

ei boli’ kabe mora mastaka-upara
sviya sri-carana harse dharibe isvara
amani jugala-preme sattvika vikare
dharaya lutibo ami sri-nrsimha-dvare

Saying this, will that Lord delightedly place his own
divine lotus feet upon my head? I will experience
sublime love for the divine couple, Radha-Krsna, and
undergo the ecstatic transformations called sattvika.
Falling on the ground, I will roll about at the door of
Sri

Narasingha’s temple.

chanting

Hare Krsna nicely
one

hears that is

sublime

by

the way and
yours

for
the

time

you

remember
yours

to

keep
in

mind

as
great

for the stamina

like
celebrating

of

rathayatra style with
one

open

and

rising

to

the

occasion

as if from above you

there

is a voice

of
your

own

to lift even
like

life

is

the
whole

heart of feeling

high
bliss in Krsna

consciousness

for

one

chanting
Hare Krsna anyway

so

suddenly

yes

there
you

go

again now chanting Hare Krsna
anyway

at

speed
but
really

nicely anyway nicer

yes

go

on

i can hear
you

and will respond in kind

somehow

feeling
like

straw
in
the

street

like when the six foot
wheel

of
the
five

ton
first

travelling

rathayatra cart ran

over
one foot i

know
very

well
as

i
got
a
little
older

mataji
approaching

death

for
fun
out of the way in
