Raskhan ke dohe, Sri Banke Bihari ke sawaiya, 48 of 144

४८.

खंजन नैन फंसे छवि पिंजर, नाहिं रहैं थिर कैसेहु माई।

छूटि गई कुल कानि सखी ‘रसखान’ लखी मुसकानि सुहाई॥

चित्र लिखी सी भई सब देह न वैन कढ़ै मुख दीन्हें दुहाई।

कैसी करूं जित जाऊं तितै सब बोलि उठैं वह बांवरी आई॥४८॥

Meaning of this sawaiya verse by  Raskhan

My eyes have been arrested by the all attractive sight of Krishna :-)

On seeing Krishna, the treasure of bliss, smile at me, I forget my social attachments. My state is such that I am still like a picture, my body is still, no words escape my lips. Wherever I go, people say, ‘O, she is crazy!’

४४.

केहि पापसों पापी न प्राण चलैं अटके कित कौन विचारलयो।

नहिं जानि परै ‘हरिचन्द’ कछू विधि ने हमसों हठ कौन ठयो॥

निसि आज हू हाय बिहाय गई बिन दर्शन कैसे न जीव गयो।

हत भागिनी आंखन सों नित के दुख देखबे को फिर भोर भयो॥४४॥

Swami Haridas’s Ashtadash Sidhant, Verse 5, Raga Vilaaval

श्री कुंजविहारिणे नमः

॥ राग विलावल ॥

ए हरि! मोसौ न विगारन कौ, तोसो न संभारन कौ, मोहि तोहि परी होड़।

कौनधौ जीते कौनधौ हारें, पर बदी न छोड़॥

तुम्हारी माया बाजी ��िचित्र पसारी, मोहे मुनि सुनि भुले काके कोड़।

कहें श्री हरिदास हम जीते, हारे तुम, तो‍उ न तोड़॥५॥

Sri Haridas says, ‘O, Hari, I am competing with you. There is none who can mess up things more than me, and there is none who can make things alright as you can…. Even if I win, I am a loser in reality.’

जय एकादशी तुम्हारी, Vaishnav bhajan lyrics for Ekadashi vrat

A bhajan is a simple way of increasing in devotion to God. The rich Indian oral tradition was designed to embed joyous spirituality in the masses.

This is a beautiful Vaishnav bhajan to honour and remember the names and significance of different Ekadashi days in the calendar.

सब काल ईश की प्यारी, जय एकादशी तुम्हारी

सकल तिथिन की तुम हो रानी, वेद पुराण सबै बखानी

ब्रह्म रूप हो तुम निर्वाणी, दायक हो फल चारी

जय एकादशी तुम्हारी

उत्पन्ना, मोक्षदा स्वरूपा, सफला और पुत्रदा रूपा

नाम षडतिला परम अनूपा, जया नाम अघहारी

जय एकादशी तुम्हारी More...

Be clever like Radha – Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Radha Krishna, Pahari School of Art

Krishna means the most attractive . . . It is the divinity that is the most attractive; the energy that pulls everything to it. Krishna is the formless center which is everywhere. Any attraction from anywhere is coming only from Krishna. Often people fail to see the spirit behind the attraction and merely hold on to the outer shell. And the moment you try to possess the shell, you will see Krishna has played a trick and you will be left with an empty shell in your hands and tears in your eyes.

Be clever like Radha - don't be tricked by Krishna. Krishna could not escape from Radha, for her whole world was filled with Krishna. If you can see that wherever there is an attraction, there is Krishna; then you are Radha, you are in your center.

The mind moves towards beauty, joy and truth. Krishna tells Arjuna, "I am the beauty in the Beautiful, the strength in the Strong, the wisdom in the Wise." In this way he arrests the mind from moving away from him.

~ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Krishna and Meera, Braj ke sawaiya

४३.

मनमोहन सों बिछुरी जबसों तन आँसुन सौ सदा धोवती हैं।

‘हरिचन्द’ जू प्रेम के फन्द परी कुल की कुललाजहिं खोवती हैं॥

दुख के दिन को काहू भाँति बितै विरहागिन रैन संजोवती हैं।

हम ही अपनी दशा जाने सखी निसि सोवती हैं किधौं रोवती हैं॥
