Bhaja Govindham – Adi Shankara

 

का ते कान्ता कस्ते पुत्रः, संसारोऽयमतीव विचित्रः।

कस्य त्वं वा कुत अयातः, तत्त्वं चिन्तय तदिह भ्रातः ॥

भज गोविन्दं भज गोविन्दं गोविन्दं भज मूढ़मते

 

Who is your wife ? Who is your son? Indeed, strange is this mortal world. To whom do you belong? Where from have you come? O dear, think again and again over the truth of all these.

 

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

The main things for attaining mental balance are

 

Real freedom, the dignity, the beauty of it, is in oneself when there is complete order. And that order comes only when we are a light to ourselves.

 

The husband becomes grief stricken at the death of his  beloved, soft hearted and amicable wife, who has given birth to many children

 

All the relations (children, wife) come to an end in death. There is nothing in this world that is permanent

 

The human body is a rare boon to embodied souls

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

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