  • Heart Connection Community Kirtan
     Bhajan words
  • Here is a list of some of some of the many wonderful Chants that we sing.  We will keep updating this page, so please check back often.
  • My personal feeling is unbounded Joy and Bliss when chanting. Regardless of what the words mean, by singing them we have a direct experience of the many rays of our one Divine Source. Sanskirt names for the many aspects of the one creator touch our hearts directly because the by-pass our minds.  We can never experience God with our mind, its only in our heart where we can meet. By chanting these Divinely infused names our hearts understand their meaning by direct experience, the mind is stilled and silent, and our hearts are expanded and blissful. 
  • Opening Invocation: 
     
  • Om Shanti, Om
  • Om Asatoma Satgamaya
    Om Asatoma Satgamaya       Lead us from Deception to Truth
  • Tamasoma Jyotir Gamaya      from Darkness to Light
  • Mrityorma Amritam Gamaya     from Death to Blissful Immortality
     Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti    Om, peace, peace, perfect peace
  • Guru Gita: Invocation
    Guru Brahma,  Guru Vishnu
    Guru Devo Maheshwaraha
    Guru Saakshat,   Param Brahma
    Tasmai Sree Gurave Namaha  (repeat)

    Meaning:
    Guru is that which dispels the darkness
    Guru is Brahma the Creator.
    Guru is Vishnu the Preserver.
    Guru is Shiva the Transformer.
    Guru is the Supreme Being manifest in human form.
    To that Supreme Divine Teacher, I offer my heartfelt salutations, reverence and endless gratitude.

    Dhyana Mulam Gurur Murtim (From the Guru Gita)
    Dhya-na mu-lam  Gurur  murtim
    Pu-ja   mu-lam,   Gurur pa-dam
    Mant-ra mu-lam, Gurur  vak-yam
    Mok-sha mu-lam, Gurur  kri-pa
    Meaning:
    The root of meditation (dhyana) is the form of the Guru,
     the root of worship (Puja) is the feet of the Guru,
     the root of mantra (sacred sound) is the word of the Guru,
     the root of liberation (Moksha) is the grace of the Guru.

  • ____________________________________________
     Was that Hari, Hara, or Hare ?

Hari means “Shining One”, and also “thief”. The Gods steal or take away our illusions, burdens and ultimately they steal our hearts. Hara also comes from a root word meaning Joy.

Hari refers to Lord Vishnu (part of the Hindu trinity) and Krishna because Krishna is an incarnation of Vishnu.

Hare is the vocative form of Hari, and refers to both Krishna and Ram as in the Hare Krishna Maha Mantra. Both Ram and Krishna were incarnations of Lord Vishnu.
Hara refers to Lord Shiva
Hara is also the feminine aspect of God (Ishvara), known as Shakti
Hara is a name of Krishna's consort, known as Radharani or Radhe

Don’t worrry over which is who, when we are chanting the feeling of all of these “HA” vibrations is from the sacral chakra (lower abdomen energy center).
You can feel their effect regardless of whether we understand the meaning.


Lord Vishnu,  Preservation of CreationOm Namo Bhagavate
Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya
Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya

  1. Om Namah Shivaya, Om Namah Shivaya,
    Om Namah Shivaya, Om Namah Shivaya
  2. Om, I bow in reverence to the supreme Lord Vasudevaya. The all pervading essence of all beings and the sustainer of creation.
  3. Bhagavate literally means “One who possesses great wealth”. The title Bhagavan is used to mean Lord or Great God.  Vasudevaya refers to Lord Vishnu, (one of the trinity of Gods: Brahma, Vishnu & Shiva) . Vishnu also known as Narayana, is the supreme being or Ultimate Reality for Vaishnavas (devotees of Lord Kirshna) and a manifestation of Brahman (God) in the Advaita  tradition of Hinduism.
  4. Vishnu incarnated on the earth as Lord Krishna.
  5. The Vishnu Sahasranama describes Vishnu as the All-Pervading Essence of all beings.  He is not limited by space, time or substance, Vishnu supports, sustains and governs the Universe and originates and develops all elements within. 
  6. In the Trimurti, (Hindu Trinity) Vishnu is responsible for the maintenance or 'preservation' of the Universe, with the other roles of creation and desolation being under the care of Brahma and Shiva, respectively.

  47. Translation:

     Salutations to the Goddess who resides in all beings in the form of:
     {wisdom, light, abundance etc}
    To that constant, eternal Presence, I gratefully offer myself again and again.
     The feminine energy or nature resides in all beings (RupenaSansthita).  As the flow of life, she is expressed in us as wisdom (Buddhi), sleep (Nidra), the shadow (Chaiya), misunderstanding (Bhranti), peace (Shantih), contentment (Tushti), abundance (Lakshmi), Matri (Mother), Daya (Compassion, Kanti (Radiance) and Shakti (primal Source Energy).


     

  48. Songs to Shiva
  49. 350px-MahadevShiva Shiva means “Auspicious One”
  50. He is described as the one who is completely pure, untainted by the world of form and temptations, uttering his name can bring salvation from the cycle of reincarnation.
  51. He is one of the three Gods of the Hindu trinity: Brahman, Vishnu and Shiva.
  52. Shiva is responsible for the creation and desolution of the universe.
  53. He is the eternal yogi, blissfully unaffected by maya (illusion).
  54. He destroys our attachments and delusions and brings our liberation.
  55. Third Eye: Shiva is often depicted with a third eye with which he burned Desire (Kāma) to ashes.
  56. The Ganga river flows from the matted hair of Shiva. Thus Shiva is called Gangādhara ("Bearer of the river Gangā") The Ganga,  considered the most sacred of all rivers in India is said to have made her abode in Shiva's hair. The legend of Bhagiratha states that when the sage of that name invoked the gods to send the divine Ganges to earth to relieve a drought and purify the remains of his ancestors, he was warned that the earth had not the capacity to withstand the descent of the Ganges from heaven, in pursuit of which he propitiated Siva to receive the Ganges upon her descent from heaven and release her with diminished force. Siva agreed to trap the youthful and mischievous Ganges in his matted locks and release her to the earth. It was thus, according to Hindu legend, that the Ganges came to be trapped in Siva's locks, and to be portrayed as flowing therefrom, in all representations of Siva

What does Shambo mean? Its sanskrit and refers specifically to Siva. The word is spelled Sambhu (with an accent mark on the letter 's'), means "abode of joy." In other words, it is Siva himself who is the essence and source of joy. "Because he creates (kr) joy (sukha-sam), because he is the source of boundless joy, Siva, the supreme formless being, is given the name the 'giver of joy' (Sankara)."(Danielou 1991, p. 202)
"When beings are tired of action, of life, of pain...and seek the rest of dreamless sleep, they enter into Siva, the changeless state, the abode of joy (Sambhu), in whom the universe comes to rest and sleeps.

Translation:

Shiva is the god of destruction and regeneration, and the witness of all that passes. The
end of one thing is the beginning of another, and this image points toward nonattachment
as a spiritual ideal. When all things are seen as being equal, a feeling of great
compassion for all beings arises. The divine couple of Shiva and Parvati (also known as
Girijaa or Shakti) symbolize the union of form and energy, renunciation and fidelity, and
victory over the endless cycle of death and rebirth. (Dave Stinger)

  6. Narayana or Narayan is one of the names of Lord Vishnu, and also refers to Krishna as an incarnation of Vishnu. The name Narayana is a Sanskrit compound, with the members nara, which means "human, man", and ayana "eternal, without ending (a-yana)".  Tradition associates the nara element with another meaning of "water", explaining the name as indicating the all-pervasive nature of Narayana as that of an infinite ocean in which the never-ending movement of birth, life and death of the cosmos occurs. Narayana according to this etymology is the one who moves in the infinite waters and is also the water itself. This close association of Narayana with water explains the frequent depiction of Narayana in Hindu Art as standing or sitting on an ocean. An another important translation of Narayana is "The supreme Man who is the foundation of all men”.

  7. One more interpretation of the word Narayana: "Nara" meaning human and "Ayana" means direction/goal. Hence Narayana refers to the "direction of a human" (or the one that helps a human to his/her goal) -- that towards moksha, (liberation).

    Songs to the Guru

    Guru translates to “remove darkness” Our Guru is our teacher who dispells the darkness of our hearts and minds and frees us from the bondage of ignorance.  Your guru can be within you, your highest Self, or a realized master, saint or Avatar (direct incarnation of God). Whomever you hold dear as your supreme Teacher offer these sacred chants to them and invite them into your heart.



    Guru Gita:  1st verse Invocation
    Guru Brahma,  Guru Vishnu,   Guru Devo Maheshwaraha
    Guru Saakshat, Param Brahma,   Tasmai Sree Gurave Namaha  (repeat)

    Meaning:
    Guru is that which dispels the darkness
    Guru is Brahma the Creator. Guru is Vishnu the Preserver.
    Guru is Shiva the Transformer. Guru is the Supreme Being manifest in human form.
    To that Supreme Divine Teacher, I offer my heartfelt salutations, reverence and endless gratitude.

    Mere Gurudev  (Krishna Das) 

    Mere Gurudev, charanon par sumana shraddha ke arpita hai
    Tere hee dena hai jo hai. Wahi tujha ko samarapita hai

    My Beloved Teacher, I offer these flowers of my faith at your feet
    Whatever I have, you have given to me, and I dedicate it all to you.

    Na priti hai pratiti hai, na hi puja ki shakti hai
    Meraa yaha man, meraa yaha tan, meraa kan kan samarapita hai

    I have no love, nor do I know you.
    I dont even have the strength to worship you,
    But this mind of mine, this body of mine,
    my every atom is dedicated to you.


    Tuma hee ho bhaava men mere, vicharon mein, pukaron mein.
    Banaale yantra ab mujhko mere saravatra samarapita hai

    You are the only one in my heart and my thoughts.
    You are the one who I call out to.
    Now Make me your instrumentall I am I offer to you...
