    Our journey in life begins much
    Like a tightly closed little lotus bud
    Buried deep in the murky water
    Surrounded by filth and mud

    To find our destiny we make our way through
    Obstacles and troubles in life
    In an attempt to find the environment that
    Provides the sustenance to help us survive

    Life akin to the lotus bud remains firmly
    Attached to the dirt below the waters
    But manages to rise above the surface
    Unsullied by mud and on slaughter

    The lotus disappears every night only to
    Resurface and bloom again in the sunshine
    This ability to resurrect itself when conducive
    Of great resilience is considered a sign

    This unattachment and non dependence
    Defines the very basis of life itself
    For only through good deeds can we hope
    To find spiritual enlightenment for ourselves

    The lotus teaches us the importance of
    Learning to wait till the time is right
    And how to bear life mired in suffering
    Only to resurge with all our might

    A symbol of purity, rebirth and enlightenment
    The padma is an emblem of revival
    It is ideally how our life should be, one of
    Quiet compassion and aimed at survival

    Fairy of Shri
    By Bhavya Gogia

    Oh ShriLakshmi, am your little fairy
    Oh my Padma, hence I'll serve you daily!
    Oh lotus coiffeured, you are my lady, my princess!
    And I stick to you as your personal assistant!
    Oh one who blessed the lands of Vidarbha
    And appeared in the fields of King Janaka!
    Let me bring the fresh lotus flowers,
    And dress your tresses, in perfect charms!!!
    You enchant Our Swamy, who is known as Mukunda
    You are the Lady Royal of the great Achyuta!!!
    Let me bring for you the perfect outfits,
    Which shine by your brilliance, and your own grace!
    My princess who won the Heart of my Father,
    Let me arrange your locks, in a magnificent manner!
    You are my Queen, my dear Mother,
    I am your little girl, let me perch on your shoulder!!
    Your complexion shines like that of molten gold,
    May my heart stay with you as if sold!
    My Mother, may I shower you with lotus fragrance,
    Which is rather less than you, it's you who'll enhance!
    Let me bring in your jingling preferred jewels,
    Which match with the Lord who is studded with gems!
    My Queen, I am your own little one,
    Don't forget me ever, I am your tiny servant,
    Here this winged creature's life is yours,
    Make me a fish in the ocean of your mercy with no shores,
    Let me forever hence do this service,
    May Oh Mother, you always be my only Mistress!!!

    When I was a child, I used to watch Barbie movies. One of those was 'Barbie and the Princess Charm School'. Also, I had a special attraction to Rosetta, one of Tinker Bell Series Fairies and wanted to become such a fairy.
    In the movie of Charm School, each Princess was assisted by a personal Fairy Assistant, who follows her and serves her. She arranges her make up, hair etc. I have attached a little image of the main Princess with her Fairy Assistant.
    I wish to be such a fairy for my Lakshmi Ma!!! Hence, I made a little drawing depicting this dream, I am the fairy in Ma Lakshmi's hand! (I know am not good at drawing but I had to draw this��)❤❤❤��
    Well why, would I child prefer to be a Doctor/Engineer/Lawyer, when she can be the Fairy of her Mother!!!

    Fairy of Shri

    By ShriHari Nandini

    #mahalakshmi #narayana #shrihari #mylordvishnu #venkatesha #swami #govinda #hari #padma #bliss #love

    Today starts Purushottam Maas (It began yesterday in South though ��). It is said that Lord Srinivasa Venkatesha descended to Earth on this very day. It has a beautiful story, known by the name 'Srinivasa Kalyanam'. Kindly read, you will love it.

    So here's my little poem for ShriGovinda ❤️❤️❤️

    श्रीवेंकटेश पंचपद्य
    -भव्या गोगिया

    अनंत शेषाद्री वास
    मुख कमल सम सुहास
    अतिशय सुंदर रास
    श्रीवैकुंठ विरक्त प्रभु

    हे भक्त पोषक पुरंदर
    चिन्मय श्रीमती मंदिर
    केशव प्रियतम सुंदर
    अच्युत श्रीविष्णु विभु

    आनंद निलय देव
    मधुकर सम श्याम केश
    अंबुज दल विशाल नेत्र
    सचिदानंद शरणम् प्रभु

    हे शांतकारम श्याम
    मर्यादापति राम
    अप्रमेय श्री अभिराम
    अचिंत्य नारायण विभु

    है भक्त अन्नामय्या स्वामी
    पुरंदरनुत अंतस ज्ञानी
    पद्माप्रिय चक्रपाणि
    जय श्रीवेंकटेशा प्रभु!


    ShriVenkatesha Panchpadhye
    (Five Poems (Paragraphs) for ShriVenkatesha)

    One who lives in the Ranges of Ananta Sheshnaag
    Who has a beautiful smiling lotus Face
    Whose bliss/pleasure is extremely beautiful
    Who lives separated from his ShriVaikunth (Just to live with us, he comes leaving his ShriVaikunth)

    Oh Indra(Purandar) for his devotees
    (Just like Indra Dev showers rain, in the same way actually much more, He showers his blessings on his devotees)
    Oh complete, pure, blissful knowledge and the Temple of Shrimati (ShriLakshmi who resides in his chest)
    Oh beautiful dearmost Keshav
    (Keshav has 3 meanings: who is supreme among Brahma and Shiva/ and the one who killed demon Keshi/ the one who has beautiful hair)
    Oh infallible all pervading ShriVishnu

    One who is the abode of Bliss
    Whose hair are Black like wasps (and frequented by wasps as his hair are sweet like honey)
    Whose large eyes are like a group of lotuses
    I take the shelter of such Sachitananda Lord
    [Sachitananda- Sat(Truth)+Chit(Consciousness)+ Ananda(Bliss)]

    One who is dark complexioned and very peaceful
    Who is the Charming/Enchanting Lord of Modesty
    One who is enigmatic and very pleasing, impressive and awesome!
    He who cannot be thought of is Narayana!

    Oh Lord of your devotee Annamayya
    Who is eulogized by Purandar(here we can take both Purandar Das, who was the devotees of ShriHari and Purandar Indra) and the one who knows the Hearts and Minds of all (as him being Antharyami ��)
    One who is beloved of Padma(ShriLakshmi), and carries a Chakra in his hands
    Victory be to such Lord ShriVenkatesha!!!

    Today is also the birthday of my sister and best friend @ally_18 She is always my motivation and such a sweet devotee of ShriHari. ShriHari bless her sooooo much!!! ❤����

    Happiest Birthday Didi!
    By Bhavya Gogia

    Happiest Birthday to my Didi
    Who is dear to ShriGovinda
    May you live happily forever
    In the feet of Mukunda!
    He who is pleased by your love
    May shower all his love on you
    May you forever dance to his tune
    And may pain never touch you
    I wish you forever shine
    As the star of ShriHari's eyes
    May you forever find favour
    By him in your blissful life
    May all your wishes to serve him
    Come true as soon as speed of mind
    May your mutual love increase exponentially
    With the waves of time!
