The Supreme Contradiction

The Supreme Contradiction

O Giridhar, mountain lifter,
Yet tottering while carrying Nandababa's slipper

O Damodar, personification of fear,
Yet You cried in fear of Your mother.

O Madhusudan, killer of demons,
In wrestling You, Your brother won.

O Eshwar, Supreme Controller,
Yet also Arjuna's charioteer.

O Govind, truth personified,
For Bhishma's sake, your vow you defied.

O Bhaktavatsal, Gopal, Nandlal
Your activities, a puzzle to us all.

P.S. Happy Diwali! May the light of love and knowledge shine in your life!
