the Destroyer of Ego.
He has many ways to complete his task.
He blew the gopi’s minds,
And he killed Kantha.
In the cobalt black starry night
the gopi girls ran free to the edge of the village.
It is easy to charm free hearts back to the divine.
Kantha is the ego in us.
He was a king
Whose heart was afraid:
His ears were selective, his orders were harsh, and his mind ran too fast.
At times, Krishna comes
to wrestle our fearful kings to death.
And so it is that
Until we burn with the desire
To be destroyed
By the caring Kiss of Kanthahan
