Shades of Saffron (new)

1. Vedo solo Te
Oggi non sento

Quello che vedo

Oggi mi perdo

Dentro di Te

 

Dentro l'Tua viso

In quell sorriso

Che come il sole

Scalde anche me

 

Nel illusione

Di esser migliore

E di capire

Quello che cè

 

Sento da vero

Di esser sincero

Quando ti dico

Io credo in Te

 

Vedo solo Te

E ricordo

I mani dentro me

Sento solo Te

E mie riempie

la piano del mia mente

 

You came to show us a new path

Came to show the way

You lived your life by example

There was nothing they could say

 

Floating through colours

Caught by the currents

So many places

Lost in a dream

 

Walking long beaches

With so many questions

You were inside me

Since ages it seems

 

Breaking my boundaries

Into galaxies

You showed me the beauty

Beyond the misery

 

So many petals

Of fragrant flowers

Adorn the garlands

In Your memory

 

You set me free

From the colours

That captured me

You made me believe

I can perceive

Your mystery....infinity...infinity

 

In an all round fight,

The golden rays of light

Are removing,

The darkness of night

 

Remove the misery,

Restore the dignity,

Build a universal

Global family

7. Sarasvati
Capo on 2nd fret
The day is lost in a haze
As the sun sets the Ganga ablaze.
While crickets in the distance sing incessantly,
Songs and mantra’s merge with the night,
And offerings carried by the tide,
Slowly disappear out of sight.

Chorus 1:

In the silence of the twilight
a traveler remains
moving through the countryside,
Following the light,
Beyond the mundane
Anxious, to be unified.

Carving her way through mountains and plains
Through ice, snow and heavy monsoon rains
Around me I can hear the sound of ankle bells
The wind is screaming and the water is high
As bubbles emerge and then blow away.
The unknown traveler moves on by

Chorus 2:

Where Ganga and Yamuna
Cross their paths.
Sarasvati
Interrupts her journey
continuing homebound

through Divine sound
Sarasvati
Yearns to be free.

Dogs chase each other on the sand,
As youths play cricket on any free land
Listening for the sound of Krsna’s flute,
Bhakta’s throw their arms towards the sky
Singing and dancing trying to unify
The unknown traveler passes on by

Chorus 1:

On the opposite bank two lovers embrace
As time retreats to an unknown space.
While the temple bells ring continuously
Saffron clad Yogi’s  close their eye’s,
And meditate on deep peace inside
The unknown traveler slowly passes by

Chorus 2:

As the river slowly comes to her end
Surging forward rounding the last bend
The sound of the ocean is everywhere,
Naked ascetics sitting on the ground
lose themselves in the Cosmic sound.
The unknown traveller moves home bound

The river merges with the roaring ocean
The unknown traveller finds the destination
The waters cannot be apart anymore,
Coming home from a long journey
Infinite silence, joy and ecstasy
Sarasvati finally becomes free.

Capo on 5th fret
Twilight has come C
with the enchanting scent G
Of the lovely linden blossom, G-F-C
While the sun has smudged C
the last rays of colour C
evenly across the horizon G-F-C

Wafts of jasmine, C
Arouse the spirit G
of the dormant poet within G-F-C
As insects combine C
in  symphony, C
To welcome the evening. G-F-C

Playing Your Cosmic game. F-G-C
Are You the God of the ordinary people, Am-Em

The ocean is calling C
With each crashing wave G
That breaks on the gleaming white sand G-F-C
but my boat has sailed forth C
And now drifts alone C
Far from the mainland G-F-C

Through ocean storms C
Blown by the wind G
Longing for the pole star G-F-C
I’m a drop in the ocean C
All just to learn C
How to surrender G-F-C

Are You the God of the different people, Am-Em
Playing Your Cosmic game. F-G-C
Are You the God of the ordinary people, Am-Em
who understands why we came F-G-Am

Tired of playing, C
On the outside, G
Reluctantly staring within, G-F-C
There’s nothing to hide C
Just hitch a ride C
It’s time to come in, G-F-C

Are You the God of the different people, Am-Em
Playing Your Cosmic game. F-G-C
Are You the God of the ordinary people, Am-Em
who understands me for what I am F-G-Am

Dancing in the Moonlight

Tum ho mere krs'n'a'
Tum ho mere krs'n'a' jagata pati
Main tumhe cahata hoon diva'ra'tii
Tum alakh niranjana poorna jyotii
Main jugnu kii jyot ks'hudra ati

Tum ho sris'ti mein a'di anant
Kabhi kara'l bhaya'l, kabhi daya'l prasha'nt
Ek hansii se tumha'ri vishva bechain
Khushi se tumha'ri jhoome jaladhi

Tumha're sa'th meri tulana' nahin
Tumha'ri upma' tum hi sahi
Main shroton ka' phool bah raha' tha'
Tune mujhe utha'kar sunaii gitii   

O Lord of the world, you are my Krs’n’a; I love you day and night. You are unseen, without blemish full effulgence, I am just a meager minute twinkle of a firefly. You are endless and beginningless in this creation, sometimes terribly frightening and sometimes gravely kind. With one smile of yours, the world is restless, with your joy the ocean swings. I cannot be compared with you, you are yourself perfect example. I was floating in a stream like a flower; you lifted me up and sang song to me.

This life is for Him

This life is for Him
This mind is for Him
This soul is for Him
His universe we will serve in coordinated team
Life is for Him, life is for Him, life is for Him
Light belongs to Him
Night belongs to Him
Might belongs to Him
Undaunted in smiling face
His Grace we will sing
Life is for Him, life is for Him, life is for Him

Ke se ajá́ná pathik

Ke se ajá́ná pathik,
Man má  tiye ráungiye gelo,
Ke se chilo kśan ́ik,
Anante dulie dilo,
Man má  tiye ráungiye gelo,

Suśmitá sumadhur hás,
Náshe jata trás ripu pá́sh,
Niráshe bhare ullás,
Kon se devatá ese chilo,
Man má  tiye ráungiye gelo,

Ajio tá́re khuinje jái,
Siimáy asiime náhi pái,
Bandhane krandane nái,
Kotháy se keno lukálo ,
Man má  tiye ráungiye gelo

Which unknown traveler has coloured and intoxicated my mind?
Who was He who momentarily shook the infinite? That sweet pleasing smile of His destroyed all troubles, the six internal enemies (ripu) and the eight bondages (pa'sha). Which divinity has come to fill encouragement into hopelessness? Even today, I go on searching Him. Yet, I do not find the infinite within limitations. He is not found in bondages nor in cries. Where and why does He kept himself hidden?
