Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers

I started Kirtan at the Los Angeles Sivananda Center… I was just looking for a yoga studio that had a shower but since the class was free, I took it. Then there was something called “satsang” on Sunday that was free and had food, so I figured, why not. Then I heard some of the most beautiful singing I had ever heard… what?! This has something to do with spirituality? I was hooked.

In reflection, I actually had started Kirtan much earlier when I was involved with Yogi Bhajan and 3HO. They could really throw down at the Guru Ram Dass Ashram in Los Angeles.

This section also includes chants from Satyananda and other people who trained under Sivananda.

Lyrics

Deva Deva Sivānanda Dīna Bandhu Pāhimām
Chandravadana Mandahasa Premarupa Rakshamām
Sivananda is the God of gods, Brother of the humble, may He protect me. With moon-like face, mild smile, embodiment of love, may He protect me.


Madhura Gitā Ganolola Jnanarūpa Pāhimām
Samastaloka Pūjitanga Mohananga Rakshamām
He who delights in singing sweet songs, embodiment of wisdom, who is adored by all beings, who is of charming limbs, may He protect me.


Divya Gangā Tīravasa Dana Shīla Pāhimām
Papaharana Punya Shīla Paramapurusha Rakshamām
He who resides on the banks of the Ganges, who is generous, who removes sins, who is full of virtues, Supreme Purusha, may He protect me.


Bhaktaloka Hridayavasa Swaminatha Pāhimām
Chitswarūpa Chidananda Namah Sivāya Rakshamām
He who abides in the hearts of the devotees, the Lord, may He protect me; who is consciousness and bliss—salutations to Siva—may He protect me.

Lyrics

Jai Radha Madhav, Jai Kunj Bihari

Jai Gopi Jan Vallabh,

Jai Girivaradhari

A translation – “Victory to Radha Madhav (Krishna), victory to the one who enjoys in the forest groves (Kunj Bihari). Victory to the beloved of the cowherd maidens (Gopi Jan Vallabh), victory to the lifter of Govardhan hill (Girivaradhari).”

This part of the kirtan is a praise of Lord Krishna, who is also known as Radha Madhav, Kunj Bihari, Gopi Jan Vallabh, and Girivaradhari. It acknowledges his various attributes and activities and expresses devotion and reverence towards him.
