आ जाओ मम राजा राम, दे दो मोहिं प्रेम निष्काम ।
ā jāo mama raja rām, de do mohiṅ prem niṣhkām
O my Lord Ram!  Please come and give me your selfless love.

मन मन्दिर के राजा राम, नैनन तपन बुझा जा राम ।
mana mandira ke raja rām, nainana tapana bujhā rām
O Lord Ram!  You are the king of the temple of my heart.  
Please extinguish the ignition of my eager eye with your divine vision.

निज उर मोहिं लगा जा राम, जीवन सफल बना जा राम ।
nija ura mohiṅ lagā jā rām, jīvana saphala banā jā rām
Please make my life a success by embracing me.

बिगरी मोर बना जा राम, प्रेम पीयूष पिला जा राम ॥
bigarī mora banā jā rām, prem pīyūṣha pilā jā rām
Please make me drink the nectar of your divine love and mend my ruined luck.

How Maya Help Us

The world itself is a teacher that is always teaching the individual soul by constantly showering unhappiness and pain, thereby feeding detachment. This detachment from the world constantly pushes the soul towards God.  Maya is like the loving mother who slaps her child so that the child does not walk on the wrong path, and pushes the child towards God.

Find out more in this video where Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj explains how Maya help us in directing our mind towards God.

True Meaning of Sankirtan



Reciting Shree Radha Krishna’s names and singing the glories of their forms, pastimes, qualities and abode is known as sankirtan


The Ramayan says:

ehī kali kāla na sādhana dūjā

joga na japa tapa vrata makha puja


kaliyuga kevala nāma adhārā

sumiri sumiri nara utarahiṅ pārā


“There is no other method in Kaliyug.  Neither yoga, nor austerity, nor yagya, nor worship will take you to your goal.  Just sing the glories of God, engage your mind in roopdhyan (loving remembrance) and listen to his glories from the Saints.  This is the only means in Kaliyug to attain one’s ultimate goal."

Find out more about the true meaning of Sankirtan in this wonderful video from Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj's 2002 lecture in Brahmapur.
