Aarti Kunjbihari ki by Hari Om Sharan, video and lyrics

Lyrics of arti Kunjbihari ki

vasudev sutam devam kansa chaarun mardanam

devaki paramaandam krishnam vande jagatgururum.

aarati kunj bihaari ki,

shree girdhar krishna muraari ki.

gale me vaijyanti mala

bajaave murali madhur baala

shravan me kundal jhalkaala

nand ke nand, sri anand kand, mohan brij chandra

radhika raman bihari ki

shree girdhar krishna muraari ki

aarati kunj bihaari ki

shree girdhar krishna muraari ki.

gagan sam ang kanti kaali

radhika chamak rahi aali

latan me thaade banmaali

bhramar si alak,

kasturi tilak,

chandra si jhalak,

lalit chavi shyama pyari ki

shree girdhar krishna muraari ki

aarati kunj bihaari ki

shree girdhar krishna muraari ki.

jaha te pragat bhai ganga

kalush kali haarini sri ganga

smaran te hot moh bhanga

basee shiv sheesh, jata ke beech

hare agh keech

charan chhavi sri banwari ki

shree girdhar krishna muraari ki

aarati kunj bihaari ki

shree girdhar krishna muraari ki.

Meera bai bhajan - Mharo pranam Banke Bihari

Braj sahitya literature evolved around Krishna in Brajbhoomi - Vrindavan and its surrounding areas. Braj sahitya has lived in the oral tradition through music. Bhajan, sawaiya, dohe, pad, shloka, styles of writing poetry all find a place here. Similarly, the languages are as varied as the tongues that devotees' could speak. Sanskrit, the local dialect Braj-bhasha, Bangla, Marwari, and more regional dialects find place in Braj literature.

Sri Krishna Chandra - Braj literature - Sanskrit lyrics

Shree Krishna Chandra Krupalu-Bhajman is a popular poem sung in Braj, Vrindavan and surrounding areas. It is a Sanskrit verse, slightly offbeat from regular Braj sahitya or Braj literature, which is in Brijbhasha, and not Sanskrit. Nonetheless, this particular poem in Sanskrit describing Radha, Krishna and the setting around them in Vrindavan, despite being in Sanskrit makes for easy singing. It is lyrical in character.

Shree Krishna Chandra Krupalu-Bhajman, Nand-Nandan-Sundaram.
Asharan-Sharan Bhav-Bhay-Haran, Anand-Ghan Raadhaa-Varam.
