Introduction to the Kriti

This is a kriti by Sadashiva Brahmendra of 18th Century. The kriti is a desire to have one's mind move around the Lord and feel his presence! Lord Sri Krishna seems to be in the periphery of the geetham.

Meaning *
The devotee wants his mind to go on a pilgrimage round the Brahmam.  Let the mind go about the sikha (shirojas=hair) of the Lord decorated with the Peacockís fine feathers! Let the mind be with the Lord who goes around Goddess Lakshmi Devi and whose visage outwits the brightness of the mirror! Ascetics see this brightness as a Chandra Chakora (bright coloured parrot, meaning, festivity to the eyes). Let the mind be filled with the Lord who is a Kalpavriksha in hearts of His devotees. Let the mind complete the pilgrimage with the flow of the music from the Lordís flute.

(*Meaning is directive only, not word-to-word)
