Vikram Hazra - Kaun Kehate hai Bhagwan Ate Nahin

Vikram Hazra devotional songs concertImage by Alpesh__Patel via Flickr

This devotional song is a part of Vikram Hazra songs and bhajans and also for Krishna songs.

This a very beautiful bhajan, sung in the devotional voice of Vikram Hazra of Art of Living foundation, which was founded and formed by Sri Sri Ravinshankar, lovingly and gratefully called as Guruji (One who leads to light), incidentally i remember a quote that had slept through His mouth, from where wisdom flows with the grace and ease, as the waters of the rivers flow.

The quote is, as i remember, 'I am not leading you, I am behind you and pushing you (towards light or consciousness or God or knowledge or whatever one may want to call it.)' For more such pearls of wisdom one might visit Daily Sutras, where one can find short quotes with significant and deep knowledge that can change one's life radically if one ponders only on few of those. These shortest of expressions with the profoundest meanings can are available in different languages like English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Hindi, Portuguese and Marathi.

Another one which had made an impact on me and sounds so meaningful is that the God is seen and perceived as the father or the loving Mother, if one can see God as child. When the spiritual journey starts, God has to be taken care of as a pregnant mother takes care of her child. Most attention is on the child and everything else is of less importance, which dominated until now, or else the child might be lost. Similarly once the spiritual journey starts if utmost care is not taken and attention start gathering on else, there is a danger of losing the greatest.

This bhajan has some great Sutra within the lyrics of this devotional song, one of the favorite of Vikram Bhaiya as i have herd in most Art of Living Satsangs.

This bhajan points to us that we need the devotion and love like Mira, faith, patience and love like Sabri, immense unconditional love of Gopis, or a love of a Mother (Yashodaji) that can make the God listen and respond instantly.

Below are the lyrics or words or text of the Bhajan

* Achyutam Keshwam, Krishna Damodaram
Ram Narayanam, Janaki Valabham,

Kaun kehate hai Bhagwan atte nahi
tum Meera ke jaisi bulate nahi


Kaun kehate hai Bhagwan khate nahi
Ber Sabri ke jaisi kilate nahi


Kaun kehate hai Bhagwan sote nahi
maa Yashoda ke jaisi sulate nahi


Kaun kehate hai Bhagwan nachte nahi
gopiyonki tara tum nachate nahi

Start the Day with Love;
Spend the Day with Love;
Fill the Day with Love;
End the Day with Love;
This is the way to God.

-Bhagwan Shri Sathya Saibaba
