krishna bhajan, lyrics,mohe saanvara salona pasand aa gayaa, from vrindavan

mohe saanvaraa salonaa pasand aa gayaa,

kaalee kamalee baankee chitavan, vaape vaaroon mai to tan man,

mor mukut sir muralee dhaaroon, shyaam sakhee mohe laage pyaaru,
vraj kaa vo laalaa chitavan pe chhaa gayaa,
mohe saanvaraa salonaa pasand aa gayaa...

jab kaanhaa kee muralee baaje, patajhar bhee saavan so laage,
muralee kee dhun pe mujhko nachaa gayaa,
mohe saanvaraa salonaa pasand aa gayaa...

This is a jhoolan bhajan (rain song) from Vrindavan. Radhe and Krishna are celebrating rains in Vrindavan, swinging and singing… A rainbow decorates the sky, raindrops are falling…

jhoole re jhoole raadhe kadamb ki daal,

balihaaree jaaye ham kunjabihaaree,
chalo raadhaa raanee ki nazare utaar,
jhoolaa jhulaave dekho nandakumaar...

Bhajan lyrics, prayer to Ganesh and other forms of God, Ganpati Ganesh ko

This song is one of the opening songs at a kirtan, where devotees gather to sing praise of God. Ganesh, the god of wisdom and intelligence, is addressed first, followed by Sri Sita Ram, Krishna, Balarama, Hanuman and Shiva...

Ganesh bhajan lyrics, Ganpati Ganesh ko

ganapati ganesh ko, kaate jo kalesh ko,
mero pranaam hai ji, mero pranaam hai |

prabhu antarayaami ko, sitaaji ke svaami ko,
mero pranaam hai ji, mero pranaam hai |

bansari bajaiyaa ko, daaujI ke bhaiyaa ko,
mero pranaam hai ji, mero pranaam hai |

anjani ke poot ko, raamji ke doot ko,
mero pranaam hai ji, mero pranaam hai |

shankar bhole bhaale ko, bhakto ke rakhavaale ko,
mero pranaam hai ji, mero pranaam hai |

Ganesh Bhajan lyrics – Gaaiye Ganpati Jagvandan

This bhajan is the first among a book of poems addressed by Bhakti saint Goswami Tulsidas as personal letters to his ideal, Sri Sita-Ram. This Ganpati bhajan is sung here by Muthuswamy Bharadwaj.

bhajan lyrics, gaaiye ganpati jagvandan, vinay patrika, tulsidas

gaaiye ganapati jagvandan, shankar suvan bhavaani nandan |

siddhi sadan gajavadan vinaayak, krupaa sindhu sundar sab laayak |
gaaiye ganapati jagvandan...

modak priy mud magal daataa, vidyaa baaridhi buddhi vidhaataa |
gaaiye ganapati jagvandan...

maangat tulasidaas kar jore, basahu raamasiy maanas more |
gaaiye ganapati jagvandan...

Meaning of bhajan: Gaaiye Ganpati jagvandan

I sing the praise of Ganesh, the son of Shiva and Parvati. Ganesh, who is accomplished, generous and omnipotent. He enjoys sweet modaks (laddoo, a sweet), and gives wisdom and intelligence. Tulsidas, with hands folded in prayer begs the divine power in Ganesh for the blessing that Sri Sita-Ram may always be present in my manas, mind. I pray for that pure mind which is a suitable seat for consciousness of divinity.
