Some of the Precious Bhajan Saints and Songs:


Surdas: Aba Na Banee To


This song by the Indian sage Surdas tells us how to make good use of the great and rare blessing of this gift of human life.

If you don't do it now, then it will never be done. A human body is not acquired again and again. This human birth is like a precious diamond. Why have you let it go to waste? You didn't keep the company of saints and seekers, nor did you sing the praises of the Lord. Know that your mother is not going to give you this birth again!

Aba na banee to fir na banegee,
Nara tana baara-baara nahee milataa
Heera saa janma kyon birathaa ganvaayo
Na satsanga kiyo na hari guna gaayo
Jananee teree tujhe fira na janegee


       Mirabai: More Mana Ramahi Raama Ratai


This song was composed by Mirabai, a woman sage from India.

The name of God is like a golden cup full of sweet nectar. Who can resist drinking it!

The Name of the Lord resounds in my heart, day in and day out.

Ram, Ram, Ram, Sri Ram, Ram Ram
Ram, Ram, Ram, Sri Ram, Ram Ram

Kanaka katoraa amrta bhario
Peevata kauna natai
More mana raamahi raama ratai
More mana raamahi raama ratai
