Narada's glory. Letter N of the # a to Z challenge

One who's name means disseminator of wisdom
Narada you are the wandering sage that spreads
The name of Narayan wherever your foot falls

Loka upon loka sees your effulgent presence arrive
You- the passer by, eternal witness, unbound, free-flowing
Watching and helping where you can

O Gandharva born as human
You stayed steadfast in your devotion
After death no more human

Blessed with the spiritual Narada form
Your intelligence and learning astounds
Numbing our minds with its sheer brilliance

 Humour and wit in plenty, you are
The first ever journalist, with
Temples at Chigateri and Korva

May we pass on your tales and never waver
Senses purified with telling and listening
Who knows but you may be our life saver.

 A to Z challenge

 * Loka- world
* Two Narada temples exist in Karnataka at Chigateri and Korva

I am writing poetry based on Indian mythology/history for the April 2016 A to Z challenge. Please read, comment and share freely and do come back :)
