HARI SHARNAM

sharnam titleThe Sanskrit word ‘Sharnam’ means shelter. This mantra asks that we be brought to Hari’s shelter, a place of refuge. The blessing of Hari’s protection removes all anxieties..

Shree Guru Charanam
Shree Hari Sharanam

I surrender to the feet of the Guru, and find my refuge in God.

If I had no shame, no guilt, no fear…then I could raise my eyes and
look at you. But I can’t bear the love in your eyes. I have to turn
away. Could you really be looking at me that way? No one has ever
looked at me like that. How could this be? I am all naked in front of
you. I want to run but my legs don’t move. I want to hide, but I see
you everywhere I turn, and if I look up for a moment, you’re looking
at me the same way. I have no where to hide. I fall at your feet and
my eyes pour out their pain, sadness and longing. You bend down and
lift me up. You wipe my eyes with the corner of your blanket. You ask
me to sit by you. You show me that I am yours and you are mine, not
just this moment, but always… At your feet, I am home.
