“I always long to remain in your presence, oh lord”, yearns Gopalakrishna Bharati, the 18th century Carnatic composer, in this ode to #Shiva. Enjoy this rendition by #SoundsofIsha played during one of the darshans with Sadhguru.
Lyrics and Meaning:
Enneramum undan sannidhiyile naan
irukka venum ayya, Ponnayya
Let me, at all times, remain in your presence, oh divine being…
Thennam sholai thazhaikkum
thenpuliyur Ponnambalattarase en arase naan
In these flourishing groves of your holy abode!
Panchakshara padiyum kodikambamum
koyilazhagum aridhaana rahasiyamum
The 5 sacred stairs, the temple flag-staff
The beauty, the invaluable secrets of your abode…
Anjal koorum dheerga manigal osaiyum
andhakarana mayakkam theerndhu paadikkondu
And the inviting sound of the temple bells
Had kept me enchanted..
Dispelled of this enchantment, I continue singing in your praise!
