Song Name: Sitting Deep Within My Heart
Official Name: Within Subtle Walls
Author: Parivadi Dasa
Book Name: None
Sitting deep within my heart, I think Iíll be coming free
Trapped inside the walls of the mind, darkness covering me
A sentence lasts many lifetimes, but Iíll never change my age
Forced by illusion, I think I am the cage
Oh wise men! Wise men! What is reality?
Oh wise men! Open my eyes! Handing me the key!
Freedom from illusion, was the matchless gift he gave
New worlds of life, truth, and beauty opened within my mind
Transcendental land of color never changed by time
Where the Reservoir of Pleasure plays in bliss eternally
The Lord of love, Sri Govinda, is calling out to me
Dear Krsna and Balarama, can we go to the forest and play
Your mother, Yasoda, is calling you, do you have to go away?
Dear Krsna, You are so enchanting, fragrant flowers within Your hair
The lovely lotus petal eyes seek Radharani, is She there?
Dear Krsna, see the peacocks dance, trying hard to catch Your style
The naughty, colored butterflies seek the honey of Your smile
Dear Krsna and Balarama, can we help You tend the cows
Taking them to Madhuvana, along the forest paths
Dear Krsna, can you take me home, donít mind this humble plea
The low-lives turned away from You, only You can set me free
This song was featured in late Parivadi Dasís album ďAncient Hymns.Ē
