Brightest blind eyes where Krishna resides "Bhakt Surdas " Creations .








Charan Kamal bando hari rai
Jaki kripa pangu giri langhey
Andhare ko sab kachhu darsai
Bahiro sune mook puni bole
Rank chale sir chhatra dharai
Surdas swami karunamaya
Barambar namo sir naayi
Charan kamal bando hari rai


Surdas ji .....a legend of medeivial India , a contemporary of Tulsidas , Meerabai , Raidas , Raskhan , was a Krishna Lover who was so much impressed with "Krishna Baal leela" .Almost his all creations illustrate the Childhood events in sri Krishna's life .He was blind but was happy with his blindness .He refused to have eyes saying that if by having eyes he has to see this ugly world which is made up of sorrow , calamities , death etc it would be much better to be blind where atleast he can see the Lord sitting inside his eyes . It is so strange that he couldnt see but just by hearing his Lord's actions he has written so many extremely beautiful songs in his appraisal .It is not an exaggration to say that he spoke by eyes of mind that was energized and enlightened by Krishna's devotion .See the following Picture made by an artist who shows how little Krishna used to entertain his devotee .




Let us start unravelling his compact creation with his one of the best columns.





Ab ki rakh lehu bhagwaan
Hau anath baitho drum dariya Paradhi sadhe baan
Take dar se bhagyo chahat Upar dhakyo hai sachan
Duhu bhanti dukh bhayo aani hai kaun ubare pran
Sumirat hi ahi dasyo paradhi kar chhutyo sandhan
Laagyo teer sachan jai jai kripa nidhan


Here Surdas ji says-


Oh God !Save me this time .

I,an orphan bird,is sitting on the branch of a tree and a hunter has pointed me on his arrowhead .Panicked of this I want to flew away but a kite is sitting on the treetop .From both the sides I am in trouble, who will save me ?Just remembering the lord a snake bites the hunter, the bow is released from his hands and the arrow hits the kite .Surdas ji felicitates this saying "jai jai kripanidhan(treasure of mercy and grace )"


Listen to his heart touching compositions -



Ab ke maadhav mohi ubar(beautiful sensitive bhajan)




Lyrics-



Ab to maadhava mohi ubar
Diwas bite rain biti baar baar pukar
Naav hai majhdhar bhagwan teer kaise paye
Ghiri hai ghanghor badari paar kaun lagaye
Kaam krodh samet trishna rahe pal chhin ghere
Nath deenanath krishna mat lagao deri
Daur ke aane bachane draupadi ki laaj
Dwar tera chod kis dwar jaaun aaj
********************************
A surdas pad with similar raaga has also been sung whose lyrics is like following -
"if anyone knows that this song has been sung by any artist please inform me ."
thanks .



Abki maadhava mohi ubaar
Magan hau bhava ambunidhi mein kripa sindhu murar
Neer ati gambhir maaya lobh lahe tarang
Liye jaat agadh jal mein gahe grah anang
Kaam krodh samet trishna pavan ati jhakjhor
Nahi chitvan det tiya suta naam nauka ore
meen indriya atihi kaatat mot agh sir bhar
Pag na it ut dharan paavat urajhi moh sewar
Thakyo jaani behal bihwal sunhu karuna mool
Shyam bhuj gahi kadhi daaryo sur braj ke kool

Meaning -

Oh Madhava Please drive me off this time .
Oh Ocean of mercy Murari ! I am lost in this "treasure of water " like world.
Here there is the illusion which is extreme like lots of water in which the greed raises time to time like the waves of that water .This wave takes me away in the illusion of  deep water where the lust in the form of alligator is ready to ingulf .
The wind of lust and anger  together with greed is very strong .The wife and son does not let me look at the lord's name in the form of fleet that can save me from this ocean of illusion .
The senses in the form of fish bite me lot and I have a heavy burden of sin due to which I cant put my legs anywhere and besides I have been trapped in this fascination in the form of  sea weeds .
Thinking that I am tired , in bad condition and fraught .O cause of mercy Listen to me .
Surdas ji says Oh dear one of Braj ,Shyam !take me out of this ocean by carrying my arms. 



Bhajhoo re man



Lyrics-

Bhajahoon re man sri nand nandan abhaya charan arvind hey
Durlabh manav janam satsange tar jaave bhav sindh re
Sheet Aatap Vatavariyat , ae din aavanijaani re
Biphale sevenu kripan durjan chapal sab sukh lagi re...
Sravan Kirtan Smaran Vandan Paadsevan Dasya re
Poojan Sakhijan Atmanivedan , Govind Das abhilashi re...
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare .

Meaning -


Meaning of this song -

O mind just worship the lotus feet of the son of Nanda, which make one fearless. Having obtained this rare human birth, cross over this ocean of worldly existence through the association of saintly persons.

Both in the day and at night I remain sleepless, suffering the pains of the heat and cold, the wind and the rain. For a fraction of flickering happiness I have uselessly served wicked and miserly men.

It is the desire and great longing of Govinda Dasa to engage himself in the nine processes of bhakti, namely hearing the glories of Lord Hari and chanting those glories, constantly remembering Him and offering prayers to Him, serving the Lord's lotus feet, serving the Supreme Lord as a servant, worshiping Him with flowers and incense and so forth, serving Him as a friend, and completely offering the Lord one's very self.


Banke bihari krishna murari

Lyrics-

Banke bihari krishna murari
Meri bari kahan chupe
Darshan dijo sharan mein lijo
Hum balihari kahan chupe
Aankh mecholi hume na bhaye
Jag maaya ke jal bichhaye
Ras racha kar bansi baja ke
Dhenu chara kar preet jaga kar
Natwar naagar nishthur chhaliya
Leela nyari kahan chupe
Sharan mein aatap tum avinashi
Jal thal gagan ravi ghat basi
Yog suna kar rath ko chala kar
Kahan kho gaye humko lubha kar
Govind govind meera gayi
Ganika tari kahan chupe

Sandeso devaki so kahiyo




Lyrics-



Sandeso devaki so kahiyo
Hau to dhai tihare sut ki maya karat nit rahiyo
Yadapi tev tum jaanat unki tau mohi kahi aave
Prat hot mero laal ladaiti maakhan roti bhaave
Tel ubatano aru tato jal tahi dekhi bhagi jaave
Joi joi mangat soi soi deti kram kram kari nahave
Sur pathik suni mohe rain din bado rahat dar soch
Mero alak ladaito mohan hwaihe karat sankoch

Meaning - 

Here Surdas ji have illustrared the moment when udhavji came to Yashoda ji in gokul and Yashoda ji expressed all his love for her beloved son and said these words to udhav ji to be sent as message to Dewaki ji in Mathura . 

Yashoda ji says ..Say my this message to Dewaki 
I am a maid of your son so I keep on fascinating for him .
Though you know his obstinacy yet I speak to you 
Just as it becomes morning my dear likes to eat butter and bread .
Seeing the oil , unction and  water he just runs away 
whatever he wants ,I give him then gradually  takes bath .
Surdas ji says that yashoda ji says to udhava ji , oh passanger listen !I get afraid day and night  thinking  that my most darling Mohan must be hesitating saying all this to Devaki ji .


Suni ri maine nirbal ke balram




Lyrics-



suni ri maine nirbal ke balram
pichhali saakh dharun santan ki ade sawaren kaam
jab lag gaja bal aapno bartyo nek saryo tah kaam
nirbal hoi balram pukaro aayen aadhe naam
drupad suta nirbal bhai ta din taj aayen nij dhaam
duhshashan ki bhuja thakit bhai basan roop bhayen shyam
ap-bal tap-bal aur bahu-bal chautha bal hai bal-dam
sur kishor kripa se sab bal haare ko hari naam

Meaning -

Surdas ji says that I have heard that the power of weak is Ram .
If I take an account of the saints in the past He has made all aggravated tasks .
Till the gajraaj used up his strength he wasnt able to do anything but as he got weak and called up Ram ,the Lord reached there so fast that even gajraj had just narrated half of Lord's name .
The day when daughter of Drupad got weak ,He came leaving his abode .He took the form of saaree and the hands of Duhshashan got tired while winding it off .
The power of enchanting , the power of penance and the power of arms and the fourth power is of lord .
Surdas ji says all powers are due to grace of "Kishore" so those who have become loosers should only remember the name of "Hari".


Sundar badan sukh sadan







Lyrics-



Sundar badan sukh sadan shyam ko
nirakhi nayan man bhave
Hau thadi bidhina hai nit chor
Uthat jharokha te bhagyo
laal ne ek chaturai kinhi
genda ucchala gagan bich daryo
bairan laaj bhai moko
hosh gavaya mukh dhakyo
chitvan se kachu kar gayo mohe
chadhyo rahat ye chit charyo
surdas prabhu sarbas leke
hasat hasat rang daryo



Shyama thori murali




Lyrics-



Shyam thori murali main kyu bajaun
Sohi sohi taan bharo murali main sohi sohi taan sunau
Humari bindiya tumhi lagao main sir mukut lagaun
Humari chunariya tum odho shyam main pitambar paaun
Tum dhadhi bechan jao vrindavan main mag rokane aaun
Sur shyam tum bano radhika main nandlala kahaun

Lyrics-

sabse unchi prem sagaai
duryodhana ko meva tyagyo saag vidur ghar khai
juthe phal sabri ke khaaye
bahu vidi swada batayi
prem ke bas arjun rath hakyo
bhool gaye thakurai
aisi preet barhi vrindavana
gopin naach nachaai
sur kroor is laayak nahi
kah lag karehu badhai
hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare
hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare

Meaning -

Supreme is the bond of love .
for love ... lord left the high defined food (full of dry fruits)of duryodhana and ate simple food (herbs) at Vidur's home .
The lord ate already tasted food of mata Sabari and said it to be the tastiest .
Under the effect of love drove the chariot of Arjun 
he forgot his supremity .
such a love arose in Vrindavan that he danced with the gopis .
Sur das ji says that he is harsh enough to praise the lord . 

Nainheen ko raah dikha prabhu




Lyrics-



nainheen ko raah dikha prabhu
pag pag thokar khaye na
tumhari nagariya ki kathin dagariya

Prabhu more yeh ghor andhera
bhool na jaaun dwar tera
Ek baar prabhu haath pakad lo
Man ka deep jalau na



Nis din barsat nain humare


Lyrics-



Nis din barsat nain humare
Sada rehat paavas ritu humpe
jabse shyam sidhare

Kar kapol rahen kale
Kannchuki pat sukhat nahi kabahu
Ur bich bahat panare
Ansoo salil bhaye pag thake
Bahe jaat chitkare

Kahen na let ubare

It (tears) rains daily from our eyes 
Always their remains monsoon to us
since Shyam departed from here 

Assumed here that the tears are flowing in the way that .....

black powder of eyes does not stay stable in the eyes 
they make the cheeks black 
the blouse never dries 
it drains in between the breast

the tears have become giddy and legs have gone tired
its screaming here 
Surdas ji says that the Gopis says that the Braj is drowning 
why dont He saves it .

surdas sancho tab mane , jo hwai mama nistaro

surdas aise sut kou jas 
srawanani suni suni jije 

Karat shringar maiya man bhavat 


Lyrics -

ang angochh chauki baithavat 
prathamahi let paniya bharavat

I felicitate you by bringing my heads down over and over again.

You have relieved Yamlaak and Arjun(the two trees in nand jis yard that became tree just by curse ) and you drove out thr gajaraj (from the paw of the alligator),you yoked the Kalia snake please take care of mine also .
You carried the mountain(Govardhan) on your hands .  doing so you saved the people of Vraj and in this way you splintered the ego of Indra .You the saviour of Vraj please think about the poors too.

Samdarshi prabhu naam tiharo apne panahi gaho
Ek loha puja mein raakhat ek ghar badhik paryo
Ye duvidha paras nahi jaanat kanchan karat kharyo
Ek nadiya ek naar kahave mailo neer bahyo

Ek jeev ek brahma kahave sur shyam jhagaro
Abki baar mohi paar utaro nahi pan jaat taryo

Hey govind hey gopal rakho sharan




lyrics -

Hey govind hey gopal
rakho sharan ab to jeevan haaren
neer piyan hetu gaya sindhu ke kinaare
sindhu beech basat grah paav dhari pachhade
charon pahar yuddh bhayo le gayo majhdhaare
naak kaan duban laage krishna ko pukaaren
sur kahe shyam suno sharan hain tumhaare
abki baar paar karo nand ke dulaare

Meaning-

This is a b'ful bhajan expressing the grief of Gajaraj who has been cpatured in the water by the alligator .The gajraj went there to offer prayer to God and at that time this all happened .It is said that he prayed to the lord so intensley by his heart that Lord Vishnu instantly reached there and saved the elephant by beheading the alligator by his "Sudarshan" Chakra .
At that time whatever he narrated all those words are the important part of "Srimad Bhagwat Mahapurana " and this whole instance is collected together as "Gajendra Moksha".

Oh Govind Oh Gopal ,keep me in your shelter as I am loosing my life .
I went to drink the water at  the bank of river .In the river there lies an alligator who has grabbed my legs and thus he is drawing me in the water .
Whole day we had a conflict but he taken me to the edge , now my nose and ears are drowned and are calling only Krishna .
Sur das ji says that the elephant says Oh Shyam please listen to me I am only in your shelter .Oh dearest of Nand ji this time you take me accross this jolt .


Hari ka bhed na paya


Lyrics -


Tum meri rakho laaj hari


Lrics-

Tum meri rakho laaj hari

Tum jaanat sab antaryami
karani kachhu na kari
Avaguna mose bichudat nahi
Pal chhin ghadi ghadi
Sab prapanch ki pot bandhi kari
Apne sheesh dhari
Dara sut dhan moh liye hain
Sud bud sab bicchadi
Sur patit ko begi ubaro
Ab mori naav bhari


Meaning -

 Oh hari! keep my pudency 
you know everything 
the work doesnt decide anything
I am not able to deliver my demerits 
the time passes out each while
Wife, son and the wealth have deluded me 
I have lost my reminiscence .
Surdas ji says please relieve me soon 
Now my life (here expressed as boat )has fiiled
( Sense :and there is no more space for anything .)

Tum taji aur kaun pe jaun hari




Lrics-



tum taji aur kaun pe jaun
kake dware jayi sir naaun par hath kahan bikaun
aiso ko data hai samrath jake diye aghaun
antkaal tumharo sumiran gati anat kahun nahi paaun
rank ayaachi kiyo sudama diye abhaya pad thaun
kaamdhenu chintamani dinhi kalapvrichha taru chhaun
bhavsamudra ati dekhi bhayanak man mein adhik daraaun
kije kripa sumir apnopan surdas bali jaaun

Meaning -

Where should I go leaving you ? To whose doorstep I should go 
and where should sell myself in other's hand .
who is a donor capable like you who whose donation can 
satisfy me ?
On demands of beggar Sudama you handed over the fearless 
abode , he gave him Kaamdhenu (the cow)and the shade of 
"Kalpa" tree thathinking that fulfills all of the wishes.
Seeing the ocean of this physical world very terrific ,I  
fear of it intensely in my mind.
Surdas ji says oh lord ! Please be kind towards me thinking 
that I am your's .

itne hari aaye gaye basnan aaroorh bhaye
surdas dware khado aanadhro bhikhari


Find meaning of the song -

The Lord who removes the pain of the poor and is well doer of the saints
Azamil , the vulture , the hunter ,, say who was perfect among them ,
Who gave a higher destination to a bird and made the Ganika (a man who lives with a prostitute. -here Azamil )to move accross this bhavasagar...
Who versed Druva's head with canopy, and saved Prahalad
For the sake of devotee who constructed the bridge by going to Lanka puri .
When the alligator grabbed the Gajraj (the elephant) in his jaws ...who came to save him ..
When Duhshashan unwinded the clothes (of Draupadi) ,
Draupadi called up "Krihsna Krishna " in the Hall ..
Just then ,( you) Hari reached there and adjointed Himself in the clothes .
Surdas , a blind begger , is standing on Your doorsteps -
When You can do so much and show your grace upon these people ,
Please be kind towards me too .

Lyrics-

Rani tero chir jiyo gopal
Begi badhyo badi hoya viradh lat, mahari manohar baal
Upaji paryo yah koonkhi bhagya bal,samudra seep jaise laal

Sur kito jiya sukh paavat hai, nirkhat shyam tamal
Raj aaraj lagyo meri akhiyan,roge dosh janjaal

रानी तेरो चिरजीयो गोपाल ।
बेगिबडो बढि होय विरध लट, महरि मनोहर बाल॥१॥
उपजि पर्यो यह कूंखि भाग्य बल, समुद्र सीप जैसे लाल।
सब गोकुल के प्राण जीवन धन, बैरिन के उरसाल॥२॥
सूर कितो जिय सुख पावत हैं, निरखत श्याम तमाल।
रज आरज लागो मेरी अंखियन, रोग दोष जंजाल॥३।

Lord has revealed . It has increased the power of luck as one finds a red pearl from the ocean .

Surdas ji says how much happiness does lord Shiva is getting ,seeing tamal like Shyam(According to legend of the Bhagavata the tamal tree is closely associated with the life sport of Lord Krishna – and Krishna is shown to be of blue or dark skin color)  
He says the dust by his contact has reached to my eyes ,from where it removes all the blemishes and troubles.


Ri bansi kaun tap te kiyo



Lyrics-

Ri bansi kaun tap tein kiyo

Oh flute! how did you performed a penance .
you keep in touch with the mouth of Giridhar(lord krishna)and you keep on relishing his lips .

Druva ambrish prahlad vibhishan nit nit mahima gayi
Soyi adi parmanand ko dhyavat ......

Gopis after Krishnas departure from Gokul become very sad and at this they say -
our eyes are thirsty for a glance of lord .
they want to see 
lotus eyes and so they remain sad each day.
He has a mark of saffron on forehead and who wears the necklace of pearl and who is the resident of Vrindavan, 
binding us in the bond of love has left like a straw and it seems that he has fastened us with the rope around our neck .
The Gopis say  who knows the inside of anyone's mind , people just keep on laughing in their mind about one's situation .Surdas ji says that the gopi's are saying that oh lord without your presence Kashi has also become restless ....then what about us ?

Madhuban tumkyu rahat hare




Lyrics -


Madhuban tum kyon rahat hare 

birah viyog shyamsundar ke
thade kyun na chale 

mohan venu bajawat tum tar 

shakha teki tare 
mohe thawar aru jag  jangam 
munijan dhyan kare 

wah chitwani so man na dharat hai

phir phir moh pe dhare  
surdas prabhu birah dawanal 
hathasi kha

Meaning -

Gopis say -

Oh Madhuban why do you remain green

He deendayal gopal hari  




Lyrics -


Deen dayal gopal hari 

vrindavan mohi bula to sahi 
ro ro raj charan pakhar karoon
prem prasad jaga to sahi 

toye chhod ke kiski aas karun 

teri nagari mein nitya niwas karoon 
din raat yehi ardaas karoon 
teri bansi ki dhun suna do sahi 

vraj ki buhari mein birah karoon  

teri sewa pooja kiya hi karoon 
tere dho dho charan piya hi karoon 
meri naav ko paar laga to sahi 

viraha bas nayan kuchaye rahe 

ro ro ke samudra bahaye rahe 
bina aye rahe akulaye rahe 
mere dukh ko kaaran mita to sahi 

tere daras kaaran main pyasa 

surdas bahut hi aasha hoon 
mere aas ki pyas bujha to sahi 
mera jeevan maran chhuta to sahi 

Suni ri maine nirbal ke bal ram 




Lyrics-


Suni ri maine nirbal ke bal ram 

pichhali sakh dharun santan ki ade sanwaren kaaj 

jab lag gaja bala apno bartyo nek saryo tah kaaj
nirbal hoyi balram pukaro  aayen aadhe naam 

drupada suta nirbal bhayi ta din taje aayen nij dham 

duhshashan ki bhuja thakit bhayi basan roop bhayen shyam 

ap bal tap bal aur bahu bal chautha bal hai baldam 

sur kishore kripa te tab bal haare ko hari naam 


Meaning- 

Surdas ji says that I have heard that the power of weak is Ram .
If I take an account of the saints in the past He has made all aggravated tasks .
Till the gajraaj used up his strength he wasnt able to do anything but as he got weak and called up Ram ,the Lord reached there so fast that even gajraj had just narrated half of Lord's name .
The day when daughter of Drupad got weak ,He came leaving his abode .He took the form of saaree and the hands of Duhshashan got tired while winding it off .
The power of enchanting , the power of penance and the power of arms and the fourth power is of lord .
Surdas ji says all powers are due to grace of "Kishore" so those who have become loosers should only remember the name of "Hari".

Tum taji aur kaun pe jaaun


lyrics -

Tum taji aur kaun pe jaaun
kaake dware jai sar naaun par hath kahan bikaaun
aiso ko data hai samarathkiske diye aghaaun
rank ayaachi kiyo sudama diye abhaya pada thaau
kamdhenu chintamani dini kalpvriksha taru chhau
bhava samudra ati dekhi bhayanak man mein adhik deraaun
kijiye kripa sumiri apno pan surdas bali jaoon 

Meaning -

Where should I go leaving you ? To whose doorstep I should go 

and where should sell myself in other's hand .
who is a donor capable like you ? whose donation can 
satisfy me ?
On demands of beggar Sudama you handed over the fearless 
abode , he gave him Kaamdhenu (the cow)and the shade of 
"Kalpa" tree thathinking that fulfills all of the wishes.
Seeing the ocean of this physical world very terrific ,I  
fear of it intensely in my mind.
Surdas ji says oh lord ! Please be kind towards me thinking 
that I am your's .

 Lal Gopal 


Lyrics-

Lal Gopal gulal humari

akhiyan mein jin daro ju



Badan chandrama nain chakori 
In bich antar paro ju 

Gayo raag basant paraspar 
Atpat khel nivaro ju 

Kumkum rang so bhari pichkari 
taki nainan jin maaro ju 

Bank bilokan dukh mochan 
Lochan bhari drishti niharo ju 

naagari nagar bhav sagar se
Krishnadas ko taaro ju  

Shyam bina unhe yeh badra




Lyrics -

Shyam bina unhe yeh badra 
Raat shyam sapne mein dekha 
Bhar aayi nain dhurak gayo kajra

Chachal chapal hato ji chitchora
Nisi jagat maika bhayo agora 
Surdas prabhu kabre miloge 
Taj gayen gokul mit gayo jhagara

Chale gayen dil ke damangir 

Listen to chale gayen dil ke damangir

Lyrics -


Chalen gayen dil ke damangir
aapana jaye dwarka chayen khari nad ke teer
braj gopin ko prem bisaro aise bhayen be peer
jab sudhi aave pyare daras ki uthat kaleje peer
natwar bhes nayan ratnaare sundar shyaam sareer
vrindavana bansivat tyagyo nirmala jamuna neer
sur shyam sarita uth boli aakhir jaat ahir

Meaning - 

He, who holds our heart, has gone away.
He has settled himself in Dwarika  which is situated on the bank of  saline river (for the sea)
and has forgotten the pain of the gopis of braj .He has become so much harsh .
When ever we remember that sweet look , a pain arises in our heart .
His dancing guise ,big lotus eyes and beautiful dark body .
He has left Vrindavan , the place where he used to play on flute and the fresh water of Yamuna 
Surdas ji says that one of the gopis named Sarita said "afterall he belongs to the caste milkmaid". 

Nath mohe abki ber ubaro 


Lyrics -

nath mohi abki ber ubar 
tum nathan nath swami data naam tiharo
karmaheen janma ko andho 
mose kaun nakaro 

teen lok ke tum pratipalak 
main hoon das tiharo 
sari jaati kujati shyam tum 
mopar kirpa dharo 

sudhra patitit tum tare ramapati
ab na karo jiya garo 
surdas sacho jag mahi 
jo hai mam nistaro 

Naina bhayen anath humare 


Lyrics - 

Naina bhayen anath humare

madangupal yahan te sajani suniyat door sidhare

vai hari jal hum meen bapuri kaise jivahi niyare
hum chatak chakor shyamal ghan badan sunidhi piyare
madhuban basat aas darshan ki nain  joi mag haare
Sur shyam kari piya aisi , mritak hute puni maare

Meaning -

Our eyes have become orphan 
Madan Gopal  has departed quite distant from here .
That Hari is water and we are crazy fishes .How can we live without him ?
we are chatak (a bird ) and Chakor is that who have cloud coloured dark body .We love that ocean of beautiful face .He dwells in Madhuban , we have the hope of his glance , our eyes are tired of waiting on the way .
Surdas ji says that shyam loves in the way that he is killing them who are already dead .  

udho man na bhaye das bees 


Lyrics -

Hum bhagatan ke bhagat humare 

Lyrics -

Hum bhagatan ke bhagat humare 
sun arju partgya mori yah brat tarat na taare 
Bhagatan kaaj laaj hiya dhari ke paanya piyade dhayo 
jah jah bheer pare bhagtan pe tah tah hot sahayo 
jo bhagtan se bair karat hai so nij bairi mero
dekh bichar bhagat hit kaaran haankat  hau rath tero 
jeete jeet bhagat apne ki haare haar bicharo 
Sur Shyam jo bhagat virodhi chakra sudarshan maro 


There is a nice story of Raja Ambareesh that can be narrated in context of above bhajan ... 
It is good if people know it or if does not know ... must concentrate.By chance it is a pious day of Ekadashi today when I am going to write this b'ful story full of devotion and love .This is one of those chapters from the Bhagwada Mahapuran that my papa always used to say me to read and always applauded my way of reading ... :) 
Its just summary here ...

King Ambareesh was a great devotee of lodr Vishnu .He used to keep fast on the pious day of Ekadashi for the happiness of Lord Vishnu .Once he arranged a ceremony to make an end of his fast .There he invited so many sages.Among those invited people were the most famous Durvasha Rishi .He said that King please wait for us untill we get a bath from the river .He went with his deciples and the appropriate time for ending the fast was passing by as they were delaying come back . All other sages said to Ambareesh to give an end to the fast just by drinking water so that he may not violate the laws os ending the fast and not even could hurt and make an abuse of Durvasha rishi .But as the rishi reached there he saw that all the functions progressing without his presence .He got angry enough to produce a she-demon "Kritya" who started stepping towards Ambareesh to destroy him .Just at this the Sudarshan Chakra of Lord Vishnu reached there as it has been alloted to save the King by the lord .It first killed Kritya and after that it followed Sage Durvasha .Now he ran to all the three lokas and then to Brahmaji and Shivji who refused to save him from that Sudarshan Chakra saying that it can only be controlled by Lord Vishnu .Then finally Durvasha ji reached Vishnu ji 
Then the lord said "Durvasha ji , My devotees are my heart and I am my devotees heart .They dont know anything except me and I dont know anything except them .Those who have left everything of theirs for me , how can I ever think of leaving them .The humble devotees never do wrong with others and if somebody tries to do wrong for them how they can be rescued .Even I am not able to redempt you from this .Guilt against whom is done only he can save you .So please go to Ambareesh He will save you .Durvasha ji went to Ambareesh asking for deliverance from the guilt and said you are great o King,please forgive me .Then the King requested the Sudarshan chakra to leave chasing Durvasha ji .And then he fell in the Brahmins feet to say O great sage please dont ask for forgiveness from me as it will blur the glory of my ancestors beacuse Brahmins have always been respectful to us .
     

Thats it . 

Abki Tek Humari 


Lyrics -

Listen to abki tek humari 

Abki tek humari murari ,Laaj rakho giridhari 
Jaisi laaj rakhi paarath ki bharat yuddh manjhari 
Saarathi hokar rath ko hankyo chakra Sudarshan dhari 
bhagat ki tek na tari 
Jiasi Laaaj rakhi draupadi ki hone na dinhi ughari 
khechat kechat dou bhuj thaake duhshashan pachihari
chir badhayo murari 
Surdas ki lajja rakho ab ko hai rakhwari 
radhe radhe shreevar pyari , Vishbhanu dulari 
Saran taki aayo tumhari ..
