FOLK SONGS

The simplicity of the Highest Truth and emotions within folk songs is heart-catching. In some cases, the charm of folk songs can be even more influential and touching than mantras! Yes, mantras are formed uniquely. These empowered sound vibrations originating in ancient Vedas are influential, self-potent, by themselves. But sometimes, out of reputation or ritual, someone can perform mantras with no soul inside, and the effect can be the opposite! The same case can happen with everything in life. Folk songs as expressions of simple emotions alone with the knowledge of yoga are very tender due to the presence of the utmost force in existence - us! Very wise personalities who reached deep maturity in spirituality, devotion to the Supreme, and everyday life can express emotions and knowledge in a specific way. Without damaging the world, rituals, traditions, people, and their hearts, they can share complicated philosophical matters so that everyone can understand and apply them in their own life.
We desire to present the beauty, transformational power, and meaning of such songs here on our page in the hope that our hearts will be moved and inspired in building beautiful lives that will support us in return.

 

Ao Syamaji Kanhaiya Nandalalji

Mero Prana Se Pyare Gopalaji

This text or song means:
Oh, dearest Syamaji, oh Kanhaiya, oh Nandalalji, please do come
You are my life and soul, my beloved Gopalaji

 

These kinds of texts are more like songs than mantras and coming from the hearts of people who developed alive yoga or a direct relationship with the Supreme. The Supreme is not any more an object of meditation for such people. Due to developed consciousness, they can reciprocate with the Lord personally (calling with names and attributes too) in true love without any unconscious motives, completely sincere, so to say.

I am ever engaged in repeating the sweet name of Radha. All glories to Sri Radha!

Radha is there in the blinking of my eyes. Radha is there in the curls of my hair. I have filled up every part of my hair, oh, with the sweet name of Radha. All glories to Sri Radha!

Radha is there within my vision. Radha is there within my speech. I interweave every my word, oh, with the sweet name of Radha. All glories to Sri Radha!

Radha is there in my necklace. Radha is there in my sari. I have adorned my nose ring, oh, with the sweet name of Radha. All glories to Sri Radha!

Radha is there in my walking. Radha is there in my gestures. My sash of waist-bells resounds, oh, with the sweet name of Radha. All glories to Sri Radhe!

Radha is there on my right and my left. Radha is there in front of me and behind. My every fiber reflects the rasa flowing, oh, with the sweet name of Radha.

Radha is there in each limb. Radha is there accompanying me always. Lord Gopala plays His flute, which calls out, oh, with the sweet name of Radha.
