Satellite image over Kakatpur and the sorrounding
Radha Krushna
Sculptured wall at the Kakatpur Pothi Ashram

Simaanta madhye rahi achhi khela, Shakti parichaya helani bela
Shilaa madhyare sarba acchi rahi, yugaku yugaku se khela karai
Aau pancha bhutta pancha yuga hoiba ... Adinare je malaya bahiba ...
Akaalare shilaa heba je brusti ... Shunya mandale se rathi maruchhi ...
Jaga jagi khela paain je ...
Aau epatu maarile sepatee chindiba, kehi na paaribe jani je ...

Within and near the border stays the game, its about time that the power is revealed
Inside that stone is everything, from eras till eras he makes the game
And five elements will bring the fifth Yuga ... on undue days the wind will blow ...
Untimely the stones will shower, In Shunya mandala, He the brave is now desperate ...
For this secret game ...
And when shooted from this side, that will fall on that side, no one will realize the secret game ...
