Bhaja Govindam - Sing the song of Divine - Part -I 

O Ignorant!
Sing the song of the divine.
Sing the song of the divine,
Sing the song of the divine,
Because at the time of death
The memorization of grammar will not save you. 

Oh Ignorant!
Drop the desire of accumulating wealth,
Awaken right understanding,
Make the mind desireless,
And be contented and happy
With whatsoever you gain through your own labour. 

Do not be infatuated
By the beauty, the breasts, the navel
And the waistline of a woman.
These are nothing
But contortions of flesh and fat
contemplate this again and again. 

Life is as transient and unstable
As a droplet on the lotus leaf.
Understand it well that the world
is suffering from the disease of the ego
And is wounded by sorrow. 

The family takes interest in you
Only as long as you are capable of earning money.
As old age comes and the body becomes decrepit,
No one in the house even bothers about you. 

Only as long as there is life in the body
Do the people in the family care for you.
The life gone out, the body fallen lifeless,
even one’s own wife is afraid of it. 

A child is obsessed with playing games,
A young man is obsessed with in women,
The old are obsessed with worries.
Man never turns towards the divine.

Who is your wife? Who is your son?
This world is very strange.
Whose are you? Who are you?
From where have you come?
Do think over these essential questions.
