Krsna Jinaka Nama Hai

 

Lyrics: Krsna Jinaka Nama Hai

Author: Traditional

Book Name: None

Language: Hindi

Raga: Tilaka Kamod

 

Krsna Jinaka Nama Hai is a very well liked Hindi bhajan that became relatively popular to devotees from the mid-1970s in the movement. It prays to Lord Krsna in His different roles from the son of Mother Yasoda and Nanda Maharaja to the one who was the merciful Lord who became Arjunas charioteer and gave him the instructions of the Bhagavad-Gita. This song has many tunes associated with it. (I have heard at least five tunes for this song.) The one posted here is the tune that Bhakti Caru Swami sang in his Krsna Bhavanamrta recordings. The raga is in Tilaka Kamod in kaherva tala.

 

NOTE: In addition, there is a kirtan/dhun that follows the bhajan. However, from the five renditions I have heard of this song, I havent found this dhun or kirtan sung. Therefore, I havent posted that. Once I found the tune, Ill post the musical notation here. KD

LYRICS:

(1)

kṛṣṇa jinakā nāma hai, gokula jinakā dhāma hai

aise śrī bhagavāna ko (mere) barāmbāra praṇāma hai

 

(2)

yaśodā jinakī maiyā hai, nanda bāpaiyā hai

aise śrī gopāla ko (mere) bārambāra praṇāma hai

 

(3)

rādhā jinakī jāyā hai, adbhuta jinakī māyā hai

aise śrī ghana-śyāma ko (mere) bārambāra praṇāma hai

 

(4)

lūṭa lūṭa dadhi mākhana khāyo, gvāla-bāla sańga dhenu carāyo

aise śrī līlā-dhāma ko (mere) bārambāra praṇāma hai

 

(5)

drupada sutā ko lāja bacāyo, grāha se gaja ko phanda chudāyo

aise śrī kṛpā-dhāma ko (mere) barāmbāra praṇāma hai

 

(6)

kuru pāṇḍava ko yuddha macāyo, arjuna ko upadeśa sunāyo

aise dīna-nātha ko (mere) bārambāra praṇāma hai
