श्रीराम Shriram
Shri Ram

Let us listen to aarti of Shri Ram, sung in a sattvik way.

 

Utkata saduni shira setu bandoni
Linga deha lanka puri viva suni
Kama kroda dika rakshasa marduni
Deha ahambhava rava nivatoni || 1 ||

*** Jaideva, jaideva, nija bo da Rama
Parmarte aarti, sadbhave aarti
Paripurna kama, jaideva, jaidev
(this above is repeated after each stotra)

Pratama Sita shoda Hanumanta gela
Lanka dahana karuni akaya marila
Marila jambu mari buvani tratila
Ananda chi guri ghe uniya ala || 2 ||

***

Nija bore, nija shakti, sodavili Sita
Manuni yene zhale ayode ragunata
Anande osande vairaghiya bharata
Aarti ghe uni ali Kausalya mata || 3 ||

***

Anahata dvoni garjati apara
Atara padme uanara kariti bubu kara
Ayodesi aler dasharata kumara
Nagri hota ahe ananda thora || 4 ||

***

Sahaza syumhasani raja raguvira
Sohambhave taya puja upachara
Sahazanchi aarti uajantza gajara
Madavadasa swami atava navisara || 5 ||

Meaning 

You are killing evildoers You are killing the demons (greed, anger)
You are also killing your ego

God always wins We are performing aarti to You
With pure mind and heart

They took Sita
Hanuman killed the demon
He killed one more demon
To bring the ray of joy and will to India
(He found Sita)

Ram returned Sita by using all His power
In His kingdom of Ayodhya
Bliss and detachment was everywhere
His mother Kausalya brought the aarti

Subtle sound was everywhere
A lot of soldiers were with Ram
He returned to Ayodhya
Everyone was in Bliss

Then Ram became King
In order to perform puja to Him
You need to have ‘So Ham’ bhav
In order to do aarti for Him
You need to have ‘sahaz’ bhav
(‘sa’ = peace, limitless, and
‘haz’ = to please the Lord)
Let us not forget Madavadas Swami
Who recorded this aarti
