“Is Lord Krishna really blue,
Is He not the god for only the Hindus?
Why in His hands does Krishna carry around a flute,
And why the flowers and peacock feather to boot?
Some say that Krishna is God while others say Vishnu,
Please explain these to me, for to Hinduism I am new.
Honor the carved statues of Krishna, do many take the privilege,
Trusting the Vedas, is not the worship of idols pure sacrilege?
Lord Chaitanya, who is He and what did He do?
Preach to men did He, but why not to women too?
How do I find balance between material and spiritual life?
Must I quit my job, renounce my family, home, and my wife?”
Salient, appropriate, and insightful inquiries are these,
For understanding the truths of life is surely not a breeze.
But from hearing the Vedas and Krishna’s words with humility,
Soon all of life’s questions answer will we with full certainty.
