Bhaj Govindam – Verses for the Lord

The word “Bhaj is derived from the Sanskrit root “Bhaj” Sevayam that means in the service of. The word Govindam one the names of the lord literally means one who protects the cow (or also humans) as an ignorant person is compared to a cow since both lack the power of reasoning and the ability to distinguish between right and wrong. Thus Bhaj Govindam literally means in the service of the lord.

The title suggests dedication of the work by Sankara to his Guru Lord Govind since in ancient Indian tradition the Guru is considered as the lord Himself in the Human Form. The Specialty of Bhaj Govindam is that it has a simplicity that is appealing for the novice yet it is packed with meaning that is profound. Each one of its verses points to the unreality of the many temptations of this transitory existence and ends with the recurring refrain urging us to seek Govind as the ultimate Reality.

There is an interesting story behind the creation of Bhaj Govindam. Adi Shankaracharya accompanied by his disciples was roaming the streets in Varanasi one day when he saw an aged scholar teacher the rules of Sanskrit grammar to his students mechanically. Feeling empathetic towards him Adi Shankaracharya went up to the scholar and advised him not to waste his time on grammar at his age but to turn his mind to God in worship and adoration. The hymn Bhaj Govindam is said to have been composed on this occasion.

This composition consists of twenty seven verses. Besides the song beginning with the words Bhaj Govindam Shankara is said to have sung twelve other verses. Hence the hymn bears the title Dvadasamanjarika-Stotra (A hymn which is a bunch of twelve verse-blossoms). The fourteen disciples who were with the master on that occasion are believed to have added one verse each. These fourteen verses are together called “Chaturdasa-manjarika –Stotra (A hymn which is a bunch of fourteen verse-blossoms).

Come let us immerse in the magic of these profound verses rendered in the engaging voice of the Pandit Balamurali Krishna.

Balamurali Krishna

Manglampalli Balamurali Krishna is a well celebrated legendary carnatic music composer poet, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and musical iconoclast who rules over the audience with his magnificently rich and wonderfully texture voice.

He is also the only musician ever to have won national Awards in India for classical music, music direction and film playback singing.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
