Telugu songs and lyrics — Welcome to the world of music : Bhaja Govindam — Adi Shankaracharya
gocindam Sri Adi Sankaracharya is suggesting here two pronged strategy to break open the shackles that we put on ourselves by conditioning our thoughts and actions. He forgets his originality, which is endless peace and selfless love. Sincere adoration and devoted surrender to the Guru are the most important ingredients.
Indulgence in sense enjoyment will lead to miseries. Therefore, one has to realise this truth and do not attach any importance whatsoever witth the pleasures which come from the senses.
Like-wise, surrendering oneself at the altar of Narayana by reciting Sri Vishnusahasranamams and thereby getting oneself attuned to Him is the true worship. All the above actions are wonderful mesning for developing healthy habits and attitudes to life and these may help one on to the path of study and contemplation, but without knowledge of the Infinite Reality, liberation from sense objects will not be achieved. The intelligence should ever awake and work as a guard to the mind, as only the intelligence is bestowed with the meanihg powers between good and bad, true and false, permanent and impermanent, reality and appearance, etc.
It is undoubtedly and indisputably crystal clear that nowhere in the world one has witnessed a Jagatguru of Sri Adi Sankaracharya calibre and stature. One should learn to do the duty without any attachment and only such an attitude will give happiness. As we have understood from the earlier slokas and their commentary, desire and delusion wrap the mind and cloud the perception, obstructing the power to discriminate between the good and the bad, between the lofty and the low and between shreyas and preyas.
With the accumulation of wealth, the desires also increase, which ultimately breed pain bhajja misery.
Good conduct, character and devotion are necessary to secure wisdom. The old habits will overtake the mind and it is difficult to control the mind at that age. Nothing less than that at any cost.
It cannot be achieved otherwise. Every such extrovert is a fool as one is suffering from one’s own ignorance, because all the satisfaction that one gets from wealth and worldly objects is temporary. Of course, it is difficult to practice initially, as it is against the very nature of body-desires. This is the way with wealth everywhere. Vayasi gate – when the age youthfulness has passed, Kah – where is, Kaamavikaarah – lust and its play, Sushke Neere – when water is evaporated dried upKah – where is, Kaasaarah – the lake, Ksheene vitte – when the wealth is reduced, Kah – where is, Ln – the retinue, Gyaate tattve – when the Truth is realised, Kah – where is, Samsaarah – the Samsaara.
Understand that each one of these is destroyed within a minute by time. Present will become past and the future will become present. Bhaja Govindaj, Bhaja Govindam Meaning: Charity being made with true feeling will make one understand that the needs and requirements of teligu are as important as one’s own.
Subjugation to the natural passions is a common scene, but victory of the soul by subjugating the same natural passions is lyricw only with the aid of Lord.
He says to me, especiallythat one should nurture pure untainted by selfish intentions love while constantly reminding oneself givindam firmly believing in the truth that Govinda resides in everybody. Rathyaa – the road, Charpata – pieces of old cloth, Virachita – made of, Kanthah – godadi a shawl He who wears the godadi – shawl made up of pieces of goivndam rejected by others on withh roadPunya apunya – merit and demerit, Vivarjita – well left, Panthah – the path One who walks the path that is beyond merit and demeritYogee – the Yogin sageYoga niyojita chittah – whose mind is joined in perfect Yoga, Ramate – sports lives thereafterBaalvat eva – as a child orUnmattavath eva – as a madman.
It is the practice in Hindu tradition to learn any sacred scripture at the feet of Guru in Gurukul. One is afflicted by sorrows so long as there eith delusion in the mind. As an telhgu of this fact, once an aged gentleman had approached Swami Vivekananda for his guidance in Vedanta and renunciation.
The extrovert human being goes away not only from Reality but also from himself. Praana perceptions and reception of things into the subjective lifeapaana rejection of things and responsesVyaana, the digestive systemSamaana the circulatory systemand Udaana the capacity to lift ourselves from our present state of understanding to a nobler and better peak of thought on the mount of knowledge. With each sloka He removes the veils of ignorance, dispels Maya, explains the reasons for illusion and delusion and also prescribes remedy for govindm misery.
The lust and its play gkvindam bind one in maddening passion so long as one is in youthfulness with hard muscles, tight skin, stormy blood and one is young and hearty. Under the present circumstances, I lyrcs feel that there is nothing wrong to treat the photo of Ishta Daivam, holy book or a temple as Guru, but the only important condition is earnest desire and complete devotion to obtain liberation.
Once one gets entangled in govinda, vicious circle, the vasaanas of earlier births will make life difficult in this birth, unless and until one realises the futility of taking support assuming that the world of objects and beings will give one permanent pleasure.
