“Mumbling and prattling the many names of the Lord …
while onlookers say, “They’re crazy!”
entering or not entering cities
standing still or swaying
before a laughing world
they dance, they leap
undone by feeling
And the gods bow down
before them.”

[ A Poetic Translation of a song by Sri Namalwar –

one of the twelve Alvar saints of South India, who are known for their affiliation to the Vaishnava tradition. ]

[ From Sri Krishna Kathamrita Bindu issue 464 ]



“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”

— Nietzsche
