MAY YOU BE BLESSED
May your eyes be blessed
with sweet tears of longing
for the beloved of your heart
Sri Sri Radha and Krsna
for such tears cure the "mistaken outlook,"
and make the bitter tears of misery disappear.
May your vision be blessed
with cooling glances of compassion
as you see the many souls all around
suffering in the heat of their silent sufferings
for by thinking about the true welfare of others
your own problems will automatically leave you
and you will prosper and blossom.
May your mind be blessed
by the divine touch of the Lord's presence
so that you gain the strength
to turn your challenges into opportunities
and your failures into impulses
that bring out your best.
May your heart be blessed
with soft waves of gratitude and love for the Divine Couple
that heals you inside and outside
and awakens your true self
from the unconscious faint,
in which it reels since time immemorial.
May all your efforts be blessed
so that you may reach the Land of Divine Love
conquering over the relentless cycle
of birth and death in this world.
And may your feet be blessed
to always carry you into good association
where all these and many more blessings
can be experienced and maintained.
Yes, may the winds of blessings carry your whole being forward,
like a sailing boat on the ocean of time.
And should your ship experience difficult times,
where your heart trembles and stalks -
then don´t worry, there is hope:
Call upon the Names of the Lord
with deep feelings of yearning.
He will certainly rush to your help
and give you the required strength of heart.
