Our mind, our body,
Our whole life, offered,
Like a wave of the river Ganga
Our minds flow and wash Thy Feet.
The world is drenched by a sweet fragrance,
Our times are filled with happiness,
Today, this intoxicated mind-bird of mine
Is dancing from branch to branch.
May the dawns be as pious as the worship of the gods,
May the nights become like gods’ sleeping hours
May the noons be bright like an ‘arati’ of intense love,
May our words be like liberating ‘mantras’.
May our hearts be filled with devotion,
May the closed walls of ignorance and attachment be shattered.
May the boundless sun of knowledge blaze
And illumine the entire world with Light.
Project Aradhana is an offering from Know Your Rhythm (https://www.ninad.in)
