Lyrics /mantras[and meanings]

Gayatri

 

OM BHUR BHUVAH SWAHA 

TAT SAVITUR VARENYAM

BHARGO DEVASYA DHIMAHI

DHIYO YO NAHA PRACHODAYAT

 

[May the divine, radiant, pervasive light of the universe illuminate us,

protect us and guide us to the utmost.]

 

Skylark Everywhere

 

Skylark
Have you anything to say to me?

Won't you tell me where my love can be?

Is there a meadow in the mist

Where someone's waiting to be kissed? 

Skylark

Have you seen a valley green with spring

Where my heart can go a-journeying

Over the shadows and the rain

To a blossom covered lane?

And in your lonely flight,

Haven't you heard the music in the night?

Wonderful music,

Faint as a will-o'-the wisp,

Crazy as a loon,

Sad as a gypsy serenading the moon!

Skylark

I don't know if you can find these things,

But my heart is riding on your wings, 

So, if you see them anywhere,

Won't you lead me there?

 

Here

Making each day of the year,

Changing my life with a wave of her hand,

Nobody can deny that there's something there

 

Skylark

I don't know if you can find theses things, 

But my heart is riding on your wings, 

So if you see them anywhere, 

Won't you lead me there?

 

BOLO
BOLO SADA SHIVA BOLO

OM NAMAH SHIVAYA

 

[May the strength of the infinite loving source,

the all pervasive spirit of existence, be my ultimate truth.]

I call to you

Bodhisattva

Illuminate my intellect

The crown of my head 

Opens and I receive 

The light of Nakshatra

Into my belly

 

Samana

 

Oh Kali

Come to me,

Come through me

Release me from my fear

Dissolve all my doubt

Free my wildness

Let me dance again

Oh Kali MA

Into your Fire Swaha

Jai Kali MA

Into your dancing Flame Swaha

Jai Kali MA

Free

 

[Devi Puja Mantra is a call to the Divine Mother,

to She who destroys all disharmony,

disease and imbalance in the inner and outer world. 

We are calling here to the eternally fierce and loving force

within Ourselves that can clear away all

that must go in order for the luminous, thriving essence to emerge.

It is an offering to the fire that transforms.]

Jaya Jaya


JAYA JAYA DEVI MATA NAMAHA

Breathing in, I ingest the nectar of the gods
(Breath flows into this body as the nectar of the gods)

Breathing out, I remember I am alive
(Here is the sacrifice the goddess asks of you)

Breathing in, I call the teacher inside me to wake up
(Be the offering cup from which I pour the bliss,

the elixir of immortal peace)

Breathing out, I remember we are all in the pulse of the divine

(I say, OK)

 

Jaya Devi Mata

Oh, Mama

and to that within me that is she.]

[I bow to the divine inner teacher.]

ONG SO HUM
[I am that, identical to all the divine cosmic forces.]

 

Inner Mission

 

RA MA DA SA SAT SE SO HUM

SO HUM

 

Here we go turning round, around we go

Dizzy and laughing as around we go

Innocent unafraid

We are but children

Ashes to ashes we fall down

 

Rising and reaching out I call for you

Twisting and turning always seeking you

Dwelling inside the fire

The flame grows stronger

Longing for you my one and only love

 

Silently singing now this lonesome queen

Feeling your presence while asleep she dreams

“Nothing to fear my dear

I’m with you always”

Stumbled enough in life's sweet dance

Sweet dance

Stumbled enough in life's sweet dance

 

RA MA DA SA SAT SE SO HUM

SO HUM

 

The Same Mistakes

 

Push me away

Don't give a reason

But I'm not that thick

And you're not that clever

It's a new day

Of a new season

And my new place has

Made you uncomfortable

 

It's the same old story

Only the names have changed

We made the same mistakes

 

“Back in the day”

Or so you might call it

We were so close

And we shared everything

Now I find that peace comes

When you least expect it

Old floorboards

Or a nap on Saturday

 

It’s the same sad story

Only the names have changes

We made the same mistakes

 

University is falling

Wind is hauling little pieces over bigger ones

No one really knows the reason

After I Say I’m Sorry

What can I say boy after I say I'm sorry? 

What can I do to prove it to you, I'm sorry? 

I didn't mean to ever be mean to you

If I didn't care I wouldn't feel like I do

I was all wrong but right or wrong I don't blame you 

How could I take somebody like you and shame you?

I know that I made you cry and I'm so sorry, dear

Sorry I made you cry

 

Dear One, I am suffering now

Please help me

Dear One, I see you're suffering now

That is why I am here for you

Ain’t it time we grew?

Not just up but bigger, bigger, bigger

Large enough to see

Sweet enough to hear

The truth behind the words

Big enough to see that I am staring at myself

When I look into your eyes

Staring into your eyes is staring into mine

Big enough to hold it all 

With the love of a mother

 

WICHITA DO YA DO YA DO YA

WICHITA DO YA DO YA HEY

 

WACHA TONAYA HEY YA HEY YA

WACHA TONAYA HEY YA HEY

 

Mudita is ours

Karuna is ours

Maitri is ours

Upeka is ours now

 

So what can you say after I say I'm sorry?

What can you do to prove it you, I’m sorry?

I didn't mean to ever be mean to you

If I didn't care I wouldn't feel like I do

I was all wrong but right or wrong I don't blame you

How could I take somebody like you and shame you?

I know that I made you cry and I'm so sorry, dear

Sorry I made you cry

Sorry I made you cry

FORGIVENESS

 

Come Whoever You Are

Come even if you have

Broken your vows

A thousand times


Come even if by act

You have allowed

A thousand crimes

 

Come, whoever you are

You wanderer

You lover of leaving

 

Out beyond

Ideas of wrongdoing

And rightdoing

There is a field

I’ll meet you there

 

Come even if you have

Lost all your faith

In the divine

 

Come even if you have

Lost all your hope

For all mankind

 

Come, whoever you are

You wanderer

You lover of leaving

 

Out beyond

Ideas of wrongdoing

And rightdoing

There is a field

I’ll meet you there

All Is Full Of Love / Maybe I Was Wrong

 

You’ll be given love

You’ll be taken care of

You’ll be given love

You have to trust

 

Maybe not from the sources

You have poured yours

Maybe not from the directions

You are staring at

 

Trust your head around

It’s all around you

All is full of love

It’s all around you

 

All is full of love

When the leaves turn red

This melancholy creeps into my head

And all the things I said

Come rushing back to me


“We were just kids”

Has been my rationale

All these years

No guilt would I allow

I was stubborn as a tree

Was it love I couldn’t see?


All is full of love

You just ain’t receiving

All is full of love

Your phone is off the hook

All is full of love

Your doors are all shut

All is full of love

 

Maybe I was wrong

Maybe you were right

Maybe I was trying to pick a fight

Time was all we had

At least that’s what I thought we always had

 

All is full of love

You just ain’t receiving

All is full of love

Your phone is off the hook

All is full of love

Your doors are all shut

All is full of love

 

There’ll be no remainder
All is full of love
All is full of love
All is full of love
All is full of love
