Devotional Hymns of Shree Shankar Maharaj

1. “Rescue me O lord from the worldly seas” (nauka kinaryala lawa…)

In this devotional bhajan, the seeker praises the almighty as he asks to be rescued from the clutches of the recursive worldly existence. He describes the almighty as the root from which all illusory existence spurs. He praises his master who stands before him as an embodiment of divinity. He acknowledged the fact that it is the master who is the overlord of the entire cosmic dream and hence he pleads for His mercy, seeking eternal salvation. The power of devotion is so strong in the seeker that he ultimately sheds all the ties of self-identification and in one fell swoop, simply wishes naught but the grace of his divine master….

2. “In the piercing gaze of the master” (tya trishula samati…)

In this bhajan, the devotee describes the embodiment of divinity that his master represents. He describes the enigmatic and spell-binding image of Shree Shankar Maharaj as he rests in his supine pose simply looking at the seeker, in a moment disarming him of all his pretensions. The seeker describes the lord as being adorned with thousands of rudrakshas, each of which serves the purpose of reversing the process of energy decay that goes on perpetually in the universe (entropy). He also sings of the many divine acts accomplished by the Lord in his quest to lead the estranged seeker towards enlightenment and salvation. In the end, the seeker simply states, that one has to but prostrate himself humbly in front of the lord and all the ensuing riddles of human existence will be resolved in a second…

3. The Sacred Text of Kaalbhairava (kalbhairavashtaka…)

This sacred chant is an extremely powerful and potent tool which instant ablates all spiritual threats that pose a deterrent in the path of a seeker. This sacred chant, when appropriately administered results in creating a vibration field which effectively renders all negative energies defunct. Hear it on a daily basis.. It will surely work wonders in your life… 🙂

4. The song of the eternal morning dew (bhoopali…)

This sacred song is sung by a seeker to awaken God as he rests through the night. This song, usually sung at the break of dawn is a brilliant symbologial reference to the dormant state of divinity that lies in every individual. It is almost as if the seeker is exhorting the divine entity that rests within himself to rise up and with the divine light of devotion and wisdom, drive away the darkness of ignorance and doubt.. Its a wonderful thing to hear, to feel and to resonate with…:)

5. Ode to the Lord (Avadhoot Chintan…)

This sacred chant is an ode to the almighty who manifests in the form of Shree Sadguru Shankar Maharaj. The ode describes the great manifestation as the director of thousands of interspersed universes; king of kings; the greatest of all Yogis; giver of all boons and the final expression of undefined divinity that we call God… 🙂

6. The First Epistle (Amrut Vachan)

Shree Shankar Maharaj is credited with this spectacular epistle of enlightenment. In his own poetic rendition, Shree Shankar Maharaj in this epistle tells the seeker what He is all about. The epistle has been recreated in the inimitable voice of Rutugandha and trasngresses into a sacred hymn sung to please the great manifestation of power that is Shree Shankar Maharaj. A beautiful devotional hymn in itself, this audio snippet will surely leave you exhilarated and thoroughly satisfied…

7. The Self now rejoices (Ananda mana jahala)

In this devotional hymn, the seeker’s soul cries out in joy at having discovered the taste of divinity through devotion. The seeker is ecstatic and joyful beyond description and in this hymn, he forgoes all self-centered aspirations of worldly gain and asks the merciful lord for naught but one boon; that His love and benevolence may forever shower on the seeker…

8. The Master; who toils (Konasathi guru majha jhijto kiti…)

In this verse, we elaborate and elucidate on the wondrous relationship that exists between a master and an apprentice. We delve into the stories of Shree Shankar Maharaj himself who is always known to care for his disciples much like a mother cares for her children. The master in various forms and through many relationships always seeks to take the apprentice towards enlightenment and salvation. As a friend, as a father; and at times even as a servant, the master ensures that he never loses the sight of his beloved apprentice… Truly is the master more in servitude to the apprentice, contrary to the common perception…

9. Hail Thee O King of Kings (Shree Shankar Maharaja tumcha udo udo…)

In this spirited and exalting rendition of a seeker’s heart, we pay our homage to the great Shree Shankar Maharaj as we forever stand in awe of his greatness and palpable aura of divine existence that perseveres beyond the bonds of life and death… in the end, the seeker in his bid to sing of Maharaj’s enigmatic greatness; can in simple words say naught but this; Hail Thee of King of Kings…

10. Take me with thee; O Great Lord (Shankarbaba Hath Jodito)

This movie requires Flash Player 9

In this devotional hymn, the seeker beseeches the lord to grant him the entry into His Holy Kingdom. The seeker also humbly states that he perceives all his places of worship and places of pilgrimage at the feet of his great master. The seeker in complete dedication to the master also states that his sole wish is to be of servitude to the Lord in His quest to enlighten and salvage the human being from his own existence. The seeker also states that all he desires is to be besotted by the intoxicating mirth that he derives from his devotion; for the seeker realizes that through the power of devotion, he can break all illusory bonds of human existence…:)
