Offer Your Heartby Rasakhan
English version by Shyamdas
Original Language Hindi
Uninteresting are your golden temples,
always bright with precious stones
and rows of shimmering lamps.
What to say of your grandeur?
A crowd of kings
stand guard at your door.
You bathe in the Ganges
and squander hoards of pearls.
You sing many Vedic verses
and meditate in the morning.
Says Rasakhan, "All of this is useless
if the heart is not offered, with love,
to yellow-clad Krishna."
