Who are you?
From where, you have come?
Taking us along on the trip,
Across the galaxies, in your motherly grip
Without order, without command,
Some have come, for the joy of wonderland
Some have come, for they only exist to serve you,
While others have come, because they have some karmic debt due
Some have come, for they cannot miss your loving glance,
While others have come, for they are destined to perform with you, the navayuga dance
Some have come, for your playful smile,
While others have come, to spread your message in the wild
For some, you are the guru who dispels the night,
While for others, you are the divine whose essence is light
For some, you are the epiphany of love, the Gopis’ heart,
While for others, you are the ocean of mercy, the Sudama’s lord
For some, you are the compassion who listens to their painful chants,
While for others, you are the kindness who moves mountains but silently grants
For some, you are the friend, the eternal companion,
While for others, you are the father, the real protector, the only guardian
For some, you are the child, the most caring, the most precious gift,
While for others, you are the blissful Sri Hari, the Mother Divine
You have come, by your own will,
From the place, way beyond the visible stars,
Where the sun, does not shine,
And the moon, does not blink,
Only you exist, everywhere one can look,
Infinite glory, infinite light,
Infinite knowledge, infinite bliss,
You never came, never go away,
But still, I wish you a very happy birthday!
