Freed from vices and virtues, onward he wanders. Give up the thirst to possess wealth. One may go to gangasagar ganesobserve fasts, and give away riches in charity!

Where are the relatives when wealth is gone? Where are kin, when wealth disappears? Distribute your wealth in charity to the neaning and the needy.

Bhaja Govindam – Wikipedia

Old age passes away by thinking over many past things. When the Truth is realised, where is samsara? Seeing this, he burst forth with the verses of Bhaja govindaM. Stanza attributed to Gvindam.

Reflect thus at all times. This prompted Sri Sankara to burst out this composition, a sort of rebuke to foolish way of living. Born among the studious Nambudiri Brahmans of Malabar, he rejected the luxuries of the world, and while still a youth became a Sanyasi, worshipping unpretentiously the gods of the Hindu pantheon, and yet mystically absorbed in the vision of all-embracing Brahman.


Of whom are you? Give up all attachments and renounce all comforts. Oh devotee of the lotus feet of the Guru! Hence the song rightly starts without any preamble: Bhaja govindaM has been set to musical tones and sung as prayer songs by children. They may not follow exact word construction in the above verses. Distribute your wealth in charity to the poor and the needy.

Please help to maintain respect for volunteer spirit. Ponder thus, look at everything as essenceless and give up the world as an idle dream. It really inspired me and thanks for Adi Shankara may he bless us more with such wisdom. Take your residence in a temple or below a tree, wear the deerskin for the dress, and sleep with mother earth as your bed. The life of a man is as uncertain as rain drops trembling on a lotus leaf.

Arriving in the north as a delegate of the south, he won such popularity at the assemblies of Benaras that it crowned him with its highest honour, and sent him forth, with a retinue of disciples, to champion Brahmanism in all the debating halls of India.

Subbulakshmi is very popular. Leaving aside all these, after knowing their illusory nature, realize the state of Brahman and enter into it.

But when the soul departs from the body, even his wife runs away in fear of the corpse. Ponder thus, look at everything as essence-less and give up the world as an idle dream.

Bhaja Govindam

Besides the refrain of the song beginning with the words “Bhaja Govindam”, Shankaracharya is said to have sung twelve other verses. Youth is lost by attachment to anx.

Redeem me through Thy mercy. Stanza attributed to Nityanatha. The Acharya urges xnd man to turn towards God and sing His glory instead of trying to learn a language. Is there none to guide thee and show the way? Who is my mother? Who is your son? Know that the whole world remains a prey to disease, ego and grief. Regulate the pranas, remain unaffected by external influences and discriminate between the real and the fleeting.


One may take delight in yoga or bhoga, may have attachment or detachment. Through disciplined senses and controlled mind, thou shalt come to experience the indwelling Lord of your heart! XXIV needs more explanation,if can be. The prayer leaves one in no doubt that the renunciation of our egotistical differences and surrender to God makes for salvation. One who lives in communion with God enjoys bliss, pure and uncontaminated, like a child and as someone intoxicated.

Even then the attachment is strong and he clings firmly to fruitless desires. Thus enquire, leaving aside the entire world-of-experience, essenceless and a mere dreamland, born of imagination.

There is a story attached to the composition of this Hymn. The old man moves about leaning on his staff. He then will have no altercation with Yama.

Thus was a silly grammarian lost in rules cleansed of his narrow vision and shown the Light by Shankara’s apostles. Let a man read but a little from Gitaa, drink just a drop of water from the ganges, worship murari govinda just once.

Stanza attributed to medhaatithira.
