Bhaja Govindham – Adi Shankara

 

मूढ़ जहीहि धनागमतृष्णाम्, कुरु सद्बुद्धिमं मनसि वितृष्णाम्।

यल्लभसे निजकर्मोपात्तम्, वित्तं तेन विनोदय चित्तं ॥

भज गोविन्दं भज गोविन्दं गोविन्दं भज मूढ़मते

 

O deluded one; give up your craving for wealth. Make your mind free from desire and and take up the path of righteousness.

 

Be happy with what ever you get as a result of your past actions (karma).

 

O deluded minded friend, Chant the Divine Name Govinda, Chant the Divine Name Govinda, Chant the Divine Name Govinda.

By chanting the Name of Bhagavãn one attains Atma Jnana, Jivan Mukti state

 

Accumulate the wealth of the Lord's Name; that wealth does not go anywhere

 

Nothing we earn today would come with us to the final destination but only the Divine Name WILL

 

For the ones who are lost in the worldly activities, indeed there is no higher gain than the Chanting of Divine Names

 

Lord Rama says, “Any accumulated wealth will dissolve in due time. Any position of power attained will come to an end. All the relations (children, wife) come to an end in death. There is nothing in this world that is permanent.”

 

I spent all my energy and all my moments in life acquiring all of these possessions and wealth and now……I cannot get back even one moment

 

Just as wealth accrued by a man is useful to the world and for future generations, a man's bhakti and the power of Nama gives strength to innumerable people

 

Divine Name Rama is the real wealth in this world for all because it is the treasure which will not be reduced by spending and which no one can loot.

 

The Name of the Lord – this alone is my wealth. I do not tie it up to hide it, nor do I sell it to make my living.

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
