Official Name: None

Author: Rai Dasa

Book Name: None

Language: Hindi






prabhujī tuma candana ham pānī
jākī ańg ańg bāsa samāni


prabhujī tuma ghana-bana ham morā
jaise citavata canda cakorā


prabhujī tuma dīpaka ham bātī
jākī jyota barai din rātī


prabhujī tuma motī ham dhāgā
jaise sone milata suhāgā


prabhujī tuma svāmī ham dāsā
aisī bhakti karai raidāsā



ab kaise chūṭe rām, nām raṭa lāgī



1) Lord, if you are sandalwood, I am water; fragranced by You in all parts of my body.

2) Lord, if you are a cloud, I am a peacock; looking for You like a cakora for the full moon.

3) Lord, if you are a lamp, I am the wick; with the light of love burning day and night.

4) Lord, if you are a pearl, I am the thread; just as as gold looks beautiful when adorned on a beautiful married woman.

5) Lord, you are the master and I am Your servant, Raidasa, who is always performing devotion to You.


6) There is no escape; I have already been attached to the name of chanting of Lord Rama’s name.



This song was the third track from the ISKCON’s tape “Bhajan Sandhya” by Anup Jalota performed in Juhu in the early 1980s.
