Kirtan of the week: Ik Nazar Unko Dekha

[If viewing from email, please visit the blog to listen to audio]

Kirtan by Jagadguru Kripalu Ji Maharaj


Qawwali composed by Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj describing the effect of Shree Krishna’s divine love. Excerpted from “Braj Ras Madhuri”, Part 1. Sung by Sushree Priyaswari Devi, and recorded live during a recent satsang at Bhakti Dham, Mangarh. 

Ik nazar unko dekha gazab ho gaya,
hale dil ab to mera ajab ho gaya.
A devotee says, “I looked at Krishna once and a sweet, loving disaster happened. I lost my heart to Him with that glance. Now my heart and mind are acting very strangely.”

Deeno duniya ki daulat sanjoi thee jo,
lut gayi pal mein ya rab gazab ho gaya.
“One more strange thing has happened. The effects of whatever actions I performed and whatever worldly attachments I had all vanished in one moment.”

Tan gaya man gaya akla hairan hai,
darde dil badh raha hai gazab ho gaya.
“My brain is perplexed because my body and mind are no longer under my control. Another disaster is that the pain of my separation from Krishna is always increasing.”

Ve taras bhi na khaye mere hal par, phir na aye dubara gazab ho gaya. 
“But Krishna had no sympathy for my pitiable condition. He did not give me His vision a second time. This is like a calamity for me”.

Darde dil mein magar aisa paya maja, ab kahenge ‘Kripalu’ gazab ho gaya. 
Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj says in the words of a devotee, “In spite of all this, the pain of separation from Krishna is so sweet that now I will tell everyone about my condition and that something wonderfully unusual has happened to me.”
