Bhaja Govindham – Adi Shankara

 

नलिनीदलगतजलमतितरलम्, तद्वज्जीवितमतिशयचपलम्।

विद्धि व्याध्यभिमानग्रस्तं, लोक शोकहतं च समस्तम् ||

भज गोविन्दं भज गोविन्दं गोविन्दं भज मूढ़मते

 

Life is as ephemeral as water drops on a lotus leaf .

 

Be aware that the whole world is in the grip of disease, ego and grief.

 

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

Glory unto thee….Oh! Mind! I salute thy unmatched courage!

 

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.”

 

Everyone desires peace. But it does not come by easily. Neither the rich nor the poor enjoys peace

 

The true purpose of our existence is to realize God in ourselves. No other purpose is equal to or more significant than this.

 

To think ‘What is the purpose of my Creation’ is the very purpose of Lord’s Creation

 

The true purpose of existence can be understood only if one attains a Guru

 

People perform actions for the sake of happiness; but they neither attain happiness nor succeed in ending their sorrow thereby

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

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