MY FAVORITE PRAYER SONG :
Several years ago,my father sent me a prayer book,”PRAADHNAA TARANGINI”.The book originally belonged to my mother and she signed her name on the first page and dated the copy on 1-2-89.Apparently,she liked some prayers more than others and she check marked her favorite selections in the prayer book.I liked her choice of ” BRUUHI MUKUNDEYTI ” and Smt.M.S.Subbulakshmi in her melodious voice sang this song and the recording is available on cassette tape.
Bruuhi Mukundeyti,Hey rasaney,Paahi Mukundeyti
Akrura Priya Chakradhareyti
Hamsa Niranjana Kamsahareyti .
Radhaa Ramana Harey Raameyti
Rajeevaksha Ghana Shayaameti
Kesava Madhava Govindeyti
Krishnaa ananta Sadaanamdeyti .
Achyuta Krishna Harey Raameyti
Hari Naraayana Tirtha vareyti.
Bruuhi Mukundeyti,rasane Bruuhi Mukundeyti.
SRI KRISHNA – THE SWEET NAME :
The name Sri Krishna is received by the ears of the listener with a sense of sweetness which is described as sweet as the heavenly nectar ” AMRUT “.Prahlada, a great devotee of Lord Vishnu has described nine ways to worship Vishnu.The acts of SMARANAM( Recalling from memory ) , KIRTANAM ( Singing ), and SRAVANAM ( Listening ) could be combined into a single act of worship by simply repeating the various sweet names with which Lord Krishna is known.The best thing about this prayer is that one need not ask for any grant of wishes and need not express the desires of your heart.Kuchela who had traveled to Dwaaraka to meet with Krishna and seek His favors,had actually forgotten to mention the purpose of his visit and was feeling sorry on his way back home for he thought that he had missed a great opportunity to speak his mind to Krishna.Kuchela,when he eventually got back home,he was in for a big surprise.Krishna knew his problems and granted his wishes and much more even without hearing a word about it.The sweetness of the name makes it easier to carry on the burdens of life and comforts you during your journey.The sweet name cheers up your heart, brightens your mood, sooths your aching joints,and gives hope when there is nothing else you can do.Let that sweet name fulfill your unexpressed,unstated and unspoken desires of your heart.
