"Mere Gurudev" by Krishna Das – beautiful devotional kirtan

Through Ram Dass’s satsang (community) I’ve discovered this beautiful kirtan (devotional song) by Krishna Das. From what I understand, in bhakti yoga (devotional practice) one dedicates themselves to their guru and by practicing devotion finds unconditional love and wisdom. At the same time, guru = self = God. A guru is just a method, like meditation or psychedelics.

Translation of the lyrics below – I dare you not to cry while listening! My Guru, make me your instrument – show me how to serve you!

My Guru, I offer these flowers of my faith at your feet
Whatever I have, you have given to me, and I dedicate it all to you
.

I have no love, nor do I know you.
I don’t even have the strength to worship you,
But this mind of mine, this body of mine,
my every atom is dedicated to you.

You are the only one in my heart and my thoughts.
You are the one who I call out to.
Now make me your instrument… all I am I offer to you.
