LYRICS:

(Refrain)

japo re rāma nāma sukhadāī

 

(1)

rāma nāma ke do akṣara meń

saba sukh śāntiḥ samāyī

 

(2)

rāma caraṇa ke sumiraṇa se nara

bhava sāgara tara jāni

nāma leta tero bhakta jana

sīkho sadhana sthāyī

rāma nāma ke kārana bana gayī

pāgala mīrā bāī

patha choḍā parivāra bhī choḍā

is nāma ke mahimā gāyī

 

TRANSLATION

Refrain: Please chant the name of Lord Rama, the reservoir of pleasure.

 

1) In the two syllables of Rama contains all happiness and tranquility.

 

2) O man, please meditate and remember the lotus feet of Lord Rama and cross the ocean of nescience. Your devotees take up to the chanting of Your name. Please learn this stanza of the practice of spiritual life.

 

3) It is for the sake of Lord Ramas name that has maddened Mira Bai. I have rejected all posts and family and took up to only singing glories of this name.

 

REMARKS/EXTRA INFORMATION:

This song can be sung in Raga Bhairavi in Bhajani Tala.
