Bhaja Hu Re Mana

 

Lyrics: Bhaja Hu Re Mana

Author: Govinda Dasa Kaviraja

Book Name: None

Language: Bengali

RAGA: Bhairavi

 

This well known bhajan is commonly chanted in the tuned presented below in Raga Bhairavi. Some will use the asthayi (refrain) of bhaja hu re mana and apply it to all of the verses. The tune I presented below resembles the style of this song Vaiyasaki Dasa sang in his 1983 album Transcendence.
