Blessed Hands

A poem from a dear devotee, who was inspired after viewing the Pada Puja video from Guru Purnima:

All hands are blessed equal
some are more blessed than others
these are the hands that serve
that serve God, Gods and Guru
So close to those they serve
how blessed they be!

 To soak in that darshan
a Presence that floods and cleanses
the heart, mind and five senses
To touch the form of stone
and that of flesh and bone 
how blessed they be! 

What penance performed
brought forth the voice
that speaks His names
so loud, so clear
What deeds of love
allowed the ears
to hear His call and respond
how blessed they be! 

Aah ... the fruit of devotion
with taste that quickly permeates
each cell, each pore
To tap into that, to hold
and to pass it on
how very blessed they be!

 And, how grateful we be
for these blessings that flow
unending, manifold
from His Feet, so sweet
so still, clear and pure!
