Here you find the lyrics and translations of our CD Murali.

There are some issues one should attend, when dealing with the translations of bhajans. Classic bhajans, as the Hanuman Chalisa and the Achyutashtakam, emanate (for western people) from another culture and furthermore from another age. Hence, some of the contents may seem unintelligible, if you are not aquainted with the indian context.
Since many of us would like to know, what exactly is sung in the bhajans, there is a translation of the lyrics on this website, but we would like to go without to explain or to interprete every single line of the songs. In the west, we are used to analyze every little thing with our intellect. But when we are chanting bhajans, the comprehension of the lyrics is of subordinate meaning. The words unfold their power by the expressed devotion of the chant, not by highbrow understanding of the meaning. One of the most tenacious obstacles on the path of god- or selfrealization are our ideas and concepts, that make us belief, we already would know and understand the divine: Jesus / Krishna / Mohammed / Buddha did this and that, so he is such and such. The saints talk about the divine by immediate experience – not by repeating any dogmas. Images and stories from sacred writings can help us, to understand the world and its laws in an allegorical way, but finally we have to drop all these ideas, in order that true realization can arise.



Jisa Halame

Jisa Halame, Jisa Desha Me, Jisa Vesha Me Raho: Radha Ramana Bolo
Jisa Karma Me, Jisa Dharma Me, Jisa Marma Me Raho: Radha Ramana Bolo
Jisa Sangha Me, Jisa Ranga Me, Jisa Danga Me Raho: Radha Ramana Bolo
Jisa Yoga Me, Jisa Bhoga Me, Jisa Roga Me Raho: Radha Ramana Bolo

No matter, in what condition you are, in which country you live or what form you have:
Sing Radha Ramana
No matter how you act, which work you do or at which place you live:
Sing Radha Ramana
No matter in which company you are, which skin-colour you have or how you feel:
Sing Radha Ramana
No matter, which path of yoga is yours, which pleasures you enjoy, or how your health condition is:
Sing Radha Ramana

Radha Ramana is one of the many names of the divine couple. This couple is the union of the male and the female qualities of the universe, which can be distinguished, but aren't seperated on the higher levels of realization anymore. This bhajan is an invitation, to remember the divine in all circumstances of life. There may be many obstacles, that seem to stand in ones path to self-realization. However, nothing can prevent us, to sound the divine name in the depth of our hearts – until we recognise, that soul and god never have been seperated, but rather the curtain, that disguises this realization, has to be revealed.

Achyutashtakam

The lyrics of this bhajan trace back to Shri Adi Shankaracharya , a great reformer of hinduism, who lived in the late eight century. It's about the incarnations of Krishna and Rama here on earth.

There is something special about longer bhajans: After once internalized, they can be repeated more easily than short mantras in some way. Sure you have to apply a lot of efford, to learn it, but that's already an exercise of devotion for itself.
With a fickle mind it happens, that a short mantra (repeating it in silence without a Japa-Mala) gets lost after a few repetitions, because other thoughts are approaching. A longer mantra patently takes more time, till it's complete and withstands approaching thoughts, once flowing.

Shri Krishna Sharanam Mama

Shri Krishna Sharanam Mama
Radhe Govinda Gopi Gopala

Shri Krishna is my refuge

When a human realizes, that everything, that surrounds him, will vanish sooner or later, sometimes, he's starting to search for that something, that never can vanish. Some call it the Self, others call it by one of the countless divine names, but all of these Seekers strive after the realization of this ONE. Even if we feel attracted to one particular divine form and dislike others or deny any worship of forms, finally, we will reach the one truth. We don't take refuge with a Krishna, who has assumed a human form thousands of years ago, but solely with the everlasting truth, he once embodied, which is still unaltered and equally accessible nowadays.

Bhagavati Radha

Bhagavati Radha, Brindavana Vilasini
Bhagavati Radha, Amriteshwari
Prema-mayi Radha, Ati Sundari
Prema-mayi Radha Amriteshwari

Oh, radiant, sublime Radha. You enchantress of Brindavan.
Mistress of the divine nectar.
Pure love is your essence, oh gorgeous one.
Mistress of the divine nectar.

Radha is the consort of Shri Krishna. She embodies the essence of female energy, so she devotes herself absolutely into the embrace of the divine Beloved, who fullfils her completely. The Gopis of Brindavan give an example of unconditional love to the Divine, that transcends all limits – and Radha is the most conspicious amongst these extraordinary souls. The dedicated soul doesn't strive for mundane desires. She may have wishes, but she knows, that it's God alone who grants or refuses them. She may have property, but she knows, that God owns everything and she isn't able to own anything. Each circumstance in life, no matter if it's god or bad, is dedicated to the Divine without distinction. Bhakti is endless faith in the divine Being, which is changeless, infinite and existent under every condition.

Arut Perum Jothi

Arut Perum Jothi
Tanip Perum Karunai
Arut Perum Jothi

Almighty, mercyful, infinite Light
Almighty, mercyful, infinite Light
All-powerful compassion
Almighty, mercyful, infinite Light

This Tamil-mantra traces back to Ramalinga Swamigal (also known as Vallalar), who embodied himself from 1823 to 1874 in Tamil Nadu. He called the Divine „Arut Perum Jothi“ and turned to Paramatman directly – to the One, which is nothing and everything at once, without any interfering form. The pure being, that never can be grasped by the mind and only can be experienced in an immediate way. It is maintained, that Ramalinga told his devotees to lock him inside of his meditation-room, when he was 50 years old.
It is said, that he turned into light there and never has been seen again. His presence, however, stayed and is still experiencable.

Namah Shivayom

Namah Shivayom Namo Namaha
Arunachala Shiva, Namo Namaha

Salutations to Shiva, my own supreme Self

Essentially, there are two big paths, that lead to self-realization: The ones, who follow the path of wisdom (Jnana), try to find the source of the I-thought and to be merged into that source.
The ones who follow the path of devotion (Bhakti), dedicate themselves completely to the Divine, till they recognise, that the Divine is the only existent thing at all. These are two paths, which peak at the same top, although the approach seems to be of a different kind.
It's a matter of fact, that both pathes lead to nonduality. One day, the Jnani realizes, that there is nothing beyond his own self, while the Bhakta realizes, that there is nothing except for the Divine. God and Self aren't different from each other.

Babaji

Beloved, revered Father

Mahavatar Kriya Babaji became known in the west by the „Autobiography of a Yogi“ by Paramahansa Yogananda. In this book, we find many stories about his wondrous ministry and his teachings of Kriya Yoga. In particular, many people are fascinated by the personal contact to his intimate devotees, described in the book.
The deeper truth is, that Babaji, like every other true spiritual Master, stands for the principal of the Satguru. It's the principal of inner guidance, that is accessible to every human, who is willing to listen carefully.
Every situation in life, offers us a chance to grow. If we close our mind against this growth, we will undergo the same and the same again in a different way, till we are ready to develop further. The guidance of the Satguru always leads us to where we have to work.
There is a metaphor to be found in the Bhagavat Gita: Krishna is Arjunas charioteer, who directs him on the battlefield.What are visions and the meeting of supernatural Masters good for, if that, what we have to learn, is right infront of us?
There is no need for God, to manipulate the laws of nature all the time, if the possibilities to show us something, can also be plain and simple.

Hari Bol

Hari Bol, Hari Bol, Hari Bol, Hari Bol
Durbar ananda nartan kallol

Sing the name of the Lord, sing.
unconquerable is the joy of the waves of bliss!

This song, written by Sri Chinmoy, expresses the ease and the joy of the highest, the unconquerable bliss.

Sri Chinmoy is a spiritual teacher, who dedicated his life to service to the human race. He wrote far beyond 20.000 (!) spiritual songs. He did this, besides his likewise intense activities as sportsman, author and artist to inspire others to exceed everything, they believe, they're capable to do, again and again and finally to push each boundary.

Bolo Bolo Sab Mil Bolo

Bolo Bolo Sab Mil Bolo
Om Namah Shivaya
Juta Jatame Gangadhara
Trisuladhara Damaru Bhajave
Dama Dama Dama Dama Damaru Beja
Gunj Utta Om Namah Shivaya
Om Namah Shivaya

The whole world chants „Om Namah Shivaya“
He, whose matted hair carry the Ganga
who holds the Trident and plays the Damaru
Beat the drum an loudly chant Om Namah Shivaya)

If someone worships the Divine in a particular form, he's regarding a certain aspect of the truth, though this aspect can carry him beyond each form. Humans worship forms, because a formless God seems to abstract for them. So they choose a specific form, to get in touch with the Divine, which corresponds with their spirit or they just follow the example of their social environment.
In the exoteric exercise of religion people abide by the myths of their belief literally. That causes many conflicts between the different religions.
In the esoteric exercise of religion, however, the mystics agree with each other in all crucial points of their God-experience, because they progressed beyond all distinctions of form. In this bhajan, Shiva is worshipped in a particular form, that has a symbolic meaning:
Shiva carries the holy Ganga, who stands for purification,, fertility and grace in India. The Trident symbolizes the three Gunas (qualities of existence), which are the foundation auf the dynamic universe, but it also stands for destruction, because nothing in the world of forms will exist forever. He beats the the rythym of creation on the Damaru (one-hand-drum), which maintains the cosmos. These allegories can illustrate some of the laws of existence, even though it's not of great importance, to consider them to much. They can become attachments and ideas of the Divine, that can thwart true God-realization. They're comparable with a crook, which helps somebody to walk with a lame leg. But when the leg is healed again, it's the crook, which impedes him, because he thinks, he would still need it.

Hare Ram

A translation of the name Rama is: „the source of all joy“.

Let us think about what we call joy. First and foremost, we think about enjoyments, which please the senses: A good-looking and true partner, health, entertainment, good food,, enough money, sex, fame – and many, many more like this.
All that brings joy to us – and there is nothing wrong about it, to live out these needs in a healthy way, because it's only human.
Even though, one thing has to be clear: All that will vanish one day without any doubt and you can spend your whole life, to pant for these things, without even asking, if there is a deeper joy, which won't vanish.
As long as there is duality, loss and suffering are inevitably – how to measure happyness, if there wouldn't be suffering as well? How to measure beauty, if there wouldn't be ugliness? Peace would be a meaningless word, without the existence of war.
The divine joy, also called Atmarama, is beyond duality. It's the Self, taking delight in the Self. Due to the fact, that the the Self isn't transient, it's joy is everlasting.

Murali Krishna

Hari Om

Oh Krishna, You play the flute so lovely.
You are the savior from the ocean of birth and death.
You becharm and intoxicate the mind.
Oh Krishna, lord of the Gopis.
You have assumed the form of a simple cowherd
and lifted the Govadhana-Hill.
Oh, Krishna, beloved of Radha.
You have pleased everyone with the plays of your childhood.
You unified yourself with the Gopis in the Rasa-Dance.
Let me praise You, Lord.

„Murali“ is the name of Shri Krishnas flute. The stories of his youth tell about the Gopis (cowherd- girls) of Vrindavan, who couldn't resist the charming sound of his flute and dropped everything immediately to meet him in the woods, where they spent many beautiful hours together. There is a deeper symbolic meaning of the flute:
The Bhakta (someone, who dedicates himself to the Divine completely) has to adopt the features of the flute.
It's totaly empty and only awaits to be fulfilled by the breath of the Beloved, so his song can be heared through it. If there would be anything else inside of the flute, no clear note would sound. If we are full of narrow ideas and cling to anything we can grab, we block against the divine will.
Finally all ideas and imaginations have to give way to emptyness. But even if there is attachment, it can be dedicated to God. So we gradually can become the flute and the song of God sounds purely through us.

Hanuman Chalisa

The monkey Hanuman is one of the most radiant examples for divine devotion. The Ramayana thells the story of prince Ramachandra, his spouse Sita and their loyal servant Hanuman.
Sita is kidnapped by the demon-king Ravana, who brings her to Llanka. After a long quest, she's found by Hanuman, who jumps over the ocean between India and Llanka, powered only by his faith and devotion to Lord Rama (who symbolizes God himself) Finally, there's an epic battle, wherein Ravana is defeated and Sita rescued. Hanuman symbolizes the unenlightened human soul, that has surrendered to the Divine.. His shape as a monkey stands for our fickle, restless mind. By relinquishing his own will, Hanuman has subdued his unsettled mind and gains the strenght, to achieve the most impossible tasks for the Divine. The Hanuman Chalisa extols the life and deeds of Hanuman. It was composed by the poet-saint Tulasidas in the Awadhi-language.

Having polished the mirror of my heart
with the dust of my Guru's lotus feet

I sing the pure fame of the best of Raghus,
which bestows the four fruits of life.

I know that this body of mine has no intelligence,
so I recall you, Son of the Wind

Grant me strength, wit and wisdom
and remove my sorrows and shortcomings.

Hail to Hanuman, the ocean of wisdom and virtue,
Hail Monkey Lord, illuminater of the three worlds.

You are Ram's emissary, and the abode of matchless power
Anjani's son, named the "Son of the Wind."

Great hero, you are as mighty as a thunderbolt,
You remove evil thoughts and are the companion of the good.

Golden hued and splendidly adorned
With heavy earrings and curly locks.

In your hands shine mace and a banner
And a sacred thread adorns your shoulder.

You are Shiva's son and Kesari's joy
And your glory is revered throughout the world.

You are the wisest of the wise, virtuous and clever
And ever intent on doing Ram's work.

You delight in hearing of the Lord's deeds,
Ram, Sita and Lakshman dwell in your heart.

Assuming a tiny form you appeared to Sita
And in an awesome form you burned Lanka.

Taking a dreadful form you slaughtered the demons
And completed Lord Ram's mission.

Bringing the magic herb you revived Lakshman
And Ram embraced you with delight.

The Lord of the Raghus praised you greatly:
"Brother, you are dear to me as Bharat!"

"May the thousand-mouthed serpent sing your fame!"
So saying, Lakshmi's Lord drew you to Himself.

Sanak and the sages, Brahma, gods and the great saints,
Narada, Saraswati and the King of serpents,

Yama, Kubera and the guardians of the four quarters,
poets and scholars - none can express your glory.

You did great service for Sugriva,
Presenting him to Ram, you gave him the kingship.

Vibhishana heeded your counsel
And became the Lord of Lanka, as the whole world knows.

Though the sun is thousands of miles away,
You swallowed it, thinking it to be a sweet fruit.

Holding the Lord's ring in your mouth
It's no surprise that you leapt over the ocean.

Every difficult task in this world
Becomes easy by your grace.

You are the guardian at Ram's door,
No one enters without your leave.

Those who take refuge in you find all happiness
and those who you protect know no fear.

You alone can withstand your own splendor,
The three worlds tremble at your roar.

Ghosts and goblins cannot come near,
Great Hero, when your name is uttered.

All disease and pain is eradicated,
Brave Hanuman, by constant repetition of your name.

Hanuman releases from affliction
those who remember him in thought word and deed.

Ram, the ascetic, reigns over all,
but you carry out all his work.

One who comes to you with any yearning
obtains the abundance of the Four Fruits of Life.

Your splendor fills the four ages
your glory is renowned throughout the world.

You are the guardian of saints and sages,
the destroyer of demons and the darling of Ram.

You grant the eight powers and the nine treasures
by the boon you received from Mother Janaki.

You hold the elixir of Ram's name
and remain eternally his servant.

Singing your praise, one finds Ram
and escapes the sorrows of countless lives.

At death one goes to Ram's own city
or is born on the earth as God's devotee.

Give no thought to any other deity,
worshipping Hanuman, one gains all delight.

All affliction ceases and all pain is removed
by remembering the mighty hero, Hanuman.

Victory, Victory, Victory to Lord Hanuman!
Bestow your grace on me, as my Guru!

Whoever recites this a hundred times
is released from bondage and gains bliss.

One who reads this Hanuman Chaleesa
gains success, as Gauri's Lord (Shiva) is witness.

Says Tulsi Das, who always remains Hari's servant:
"Lord, make your home in my heart."

Son of the Wind, destroyer of sorrow,
embodiment of blessing,

Live in my heart, King of Gods,
together with Ram, Lakshman and Sita.

Son of the wind, embodyment of all blessings.
You destroy the root of everything, which is painful and inauspicious.
