LET LOVE BE YOUR PRAYER (Part 15)

The Bauls sing:

How can you walk
the ways of love
carrying stolen loot with impunity?
In the forest of Brinda
loving is worshipping.

The forest of Brinda, where Krishna played with his lovers, friends, girlfriends; where he danced, where the raas happened.... This word raas is very beautiful: it means the divine celebration, the divine dance.

How can you walk
the ways of love
carrying stolen loot with impunity?
In the forest of Brinda,
loving is worshipping.
As the essence of purity
in the brilliance of the sky
love transcends lust
evolving ecstasy.
The bellows breathe
into the fire of life
and stabilize mercury.

Beautiful; the saying is very beautiful.

The bellows breathe
into the fire of life
and stabilize mercury.

Even mercury becomes stabilized. So what about lust? Don't be worried. Let there be a goal to your love, a center to your love, a target for your arrow, and love transcends lust. Yoga will say transcend lust, fight with lust. It is a negative approach. The Bauls say love, and love transcends lust. It is a positive approach.
