Song Name: Hain Ankh Vo Jo Syama Ka Darsana
Official Name: None
Book Name: None
haiń āńkha vo jo śyāma kā daraśana kiyā kare
haiń śīṣ jo prabhu carana meń vandana kiyā kare
bekāra vo mukha hai, jo rahe vyartha bātoń meń
mukha vo hai jo hari nāma kā sumirana kiyā kare
hīre mote se nahīń śobhā hai hāth kī
hai hāth jo bhagavān kā pūjan kiyā kare
marakara bhī amara nāma hai us jīva kā jaga meń
prabhu prema meń balidāna jo jīvan kiyā kare
They are truly eyes that behold the vision of Syama (Krsna). It is truly a head that offers obeisances to the Lord feet in prayer. Useless is such a mouth that speaks useless topics. It is truly a mouth that constantly remembers Lord Hari’s name. Diamond and pearls do not truly ornament a hand; for it is truly a hand offers prayers to the Lord. After death, the name of such a spirit soul remains immortal, for continuing to live after sacrificing everything for the love of the Lord.
This song often acts as a prelude before the song Aisi Lagi Lagan when rendered by Anup Jalota. It is sung in Raga Kirvani.
This song was also featured at the end of the ISKCON produced film “Haridasa Thakura.”
