Roadmaps to joy!

Bhojpuri song by Malini Awasthi, Reliya Bairan

रेलिया बैरन पिया को लिये जाय रे, रेलिया बैरन

जौंन टिकस्वा से बलमा मोरे जंइहे, पानी बरसे टिकस गल जाये रे, रेलिया बैरन…

जौंन सहरिया को सैया मोरे जंइहे, आग लग जैहे, सहर जल जाये रे, रेलिया बैरन…

जौन साहेबवा के पिया मोरे नौकर, लग जाये गोली, साहब मर जाये रे, रेलिया बैरन…

जौन सौतनिया पे पिया मोरे रीझे, खाय धतूरा सवत बौराय रे, रेलिया बैरन…

रेलिया बैरन पिया को लिये जाय रे, रेलिया बैरन…

~ संकलन कर्ता - पडित राम त्रिपाठी, उत्तर प्रदेश

Shiv Tandav Stotram, Sanskrit video

Sung by Ramesh Bhai Ojha

I heard this first at Haridwar where a couple of teenaged Sanskrit scholars sang this joyously and very beautifully in a tiny Shiva temple on the banks of River Ganga. This was post sunset at Ram Dham, Niranjani Akhara Road. The ghat closes for the night after this evening prayer, and I was about the only one left to witness this beautiful rendition which the boys sang as an expression of joy. It was amazing to hear them sing this Sanskrit stotra written by King Ravana (of Ramayan fame).

Ghunghat Chuk O Sajna (Lift Your Veil, My Beloved!) – Bulleh Shah by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan with lyrics

Ghunghat Chuk O Sajna (Lift Your Veil, My Beloved!) – Bulleh Shah

Ghungat Chuk Le Sajna Sajna
Ghungat Chuk Ou Sajna Sajna, Je Hun Sharmaan Kahnun Rakhiyyan Way
Ghungat Chuk Le Sajna Sajna
Ghungat Chuk Hun Sajna

Aj Muk Jaan Hasrataan Deed Diyan
Tu Kund Nu Utha Ke Betha Reh
Saadi Jaan Jandi Ey Te Payi Jaway
Tu Zulf Saja Ke Betha Reh Sajna
Ghungat Chuk Hun Sajna

Hoiyaan Mudattan Namaazan Netian Nu
Per Sajda Karan Nu Tars Gaya
Qaza Hoiyaan Namaazan Ada Houn
Sade Samne A Ker Betha Reh Sajna
Ghungat Chuk Hun Sajna

Ghungat Chuk Hun Sajna Sajna
Ghungat Chuk Hun Sajna, We Hun Sharmaan Kahnun Rakhiyyan Way

Zulf Kundal Nai Ghaira Paya
Bishyar Ho Ke Dang Chalaya
Waikh? Azawal? Dard Na Aaya
Kar Ke Khooni Akhiyaan Way
Ghungat Chuk Le Sajna, Je Hun Sharmaan Kahnun Rakhiyyan Way

Do Nainaan Da Teer Chalaya
Mein Aajiz Day Seenay Laya
Ghayal Ker Ke Mukh Chupaya
Choriyan Eh Kin Dasyaan Way
Ghungat Chuk Le Sajna, Je Hun Sharmaan Kahnun Rakhiyyan Way

Binhoon Katari Kas Ke Maari
Tad Mein Hoyi Bay Dil Bhaari
Mur Na Lai Teen Saar Hamari
Baataan Taireyaan Kachiyaan Way
Ghungat Chuk Le Sajna, Je Hun Sharmaan Kahnun Rakhiyyan Way

Neooh Laga Ke Mun Har Leta
Phair Na Apna Darshan Deta
Zehr Piyala Mein Aeh Peta
Aqloon Si Mein Kachiyaa Way
Ghungat Chuk Le Sajna, Je Hun Sharmaan Kahnun Rakhiyyan Way

Saah Inayat Mukj Na Bola
Surat Teri Har Dil Tola
Sabut Ho Ke Phair Kyun Dhola
Aj Kaloon Mein Sachiyaan Way
Ghungat Chuk Le Sajna, Je Hun Sharmaan Kahnun Rakhiyyan Way

~ Bulleh Shah
