Love Song to the Dark Lord

Jim Getz will be hosting the next Biblical Studies Carnival – do send him your posts! Jim’s most recent post shared the following cartoon from David Hayward.

In deciding what to call this post, I opted to allude to the usual English title of the Gita Govinda. Not only did the title seem strangely fitting, but there are surely parallels between the modern devotional practice surrounding coffee and the role of Soma in ancient Vedic religion. I suppose an alternative title might be “coffee bhakti”. But of course, the deity to which this post is dedicated has a serious competitor for our devotion once the morning rituals are over – that other dark lord

    When I read the title of this song, I thought you meant this. ;-)
