Brahmavidya: Transcendental I Lyrics

(14)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Bhagavatpada Namaskara (1:20)
Nityam shuddham
Nirabhasam nirakaram niranjanam
Nityabodham chidanandam gurum brahma
Namamyaham

Satchidanandarupaya vyapine
Paramatmane namah shrigurunathaya
Prakashanandamurtaye

Om satgurave namah
2. Ravens Of Paradise (5:46)
The sorrow is unbearable when countless desires devour me
Life is but a worthless mime which robs away my peace of mind
I now renounce this crown of thorns called Dharma
But this wanting madness never ends! Not even in paradise!

Nothing is worth seeking when everything is relative
I see all reduced to nothing; ashes seem to be its essence
Oscillating between pleasure and pain
The futility of Karmas is glaring
This pain ushers realization that these swans are indeed ravens

Thus Vairagya set me free
Viveka shall set me free

Om bhurbhuvah svah sannyastam maya

Mumukshutvam shall set me free
Shatka Sampat can set me free

Recognize the elusive pleasure in all
Recognize the deadening pain in all
Realize where there is mind even in paradise one can't be free

Ashimahi vayam bhikshamashavaso vasimahi
Shayimahi mahiprshthe kurvimahi kimishvaraih

"Face covered with wrinkles, head painted white with grey hair,
The limbs so feeble, yet desire alone stays youthful"
3. Amrtasyaputra (6:03)
Mortals are damned by their fear of mortality
Caused by duality which manifests the world of multiplicity
But when all is Mithya what remains even to be seen apart from
The Self that shines in both darkness and light
Birth and death everywhere, yet I think of another dawn
To taste the bitterness of that which eludes permanence
The heaven that I seek and the joys I yearn to swill diminish into
The effulgence of the Self

We are Amrtasya Putrah

Atmaiva kevalam sarvam bhedabhedo na vidyate
Asti nasti katham bruyam vismayah pratibhati me
"The mind indeed is the form of space. Mind indeed is omnifaced.
Mind is the past. Mind is all. But in reality there is no mind."

Birth and death everywhere, yet I think of another dawn
To taste the bitterness of that which eludes permanence
The heaven that I seek and the joys I yearn to swill diminish into
The radiance of the Self

We are Amrtasya Putrah

Om namo bhagavate dattatreyaya

Om avadhutaya namah
Om brahmadattaya namah
Om vishnudattaya namah
Om shivadattaya namah
4. Hymns From The Blazing Chariot (6:57)
Shri bhagavan uvaca
Kutastvaa kashmalamidam vishame samupasthitam
Anaryajushtamasvargyamakirtikaramarjuna

Arjuna Uvaca
Na hi prapashyami mamapanudyadyacchokamucchoshanamindriyanam
Avapya bhumavasapatnamrddham rajyam suranamapi cahipatyam

Sanjaya uvaca
Evamuktva hrishikesham gudakeshah parantapah
Na yotsya iti govindamuktva tushnim babhuva ha

Dilemma amidst Kurukshetra yet Arjuna spoke like a wise man
The battle of Shreyas and Preyas enshrouds the Dharma Yuddha

Ashocyan anvashocas tvam

In both Krishna and Arjuna it shines eternally
One knows and the other knows not
A reality that shines even in one's ignorance
And shines the same in one's wisdom

Nasato vidyate bhavo nabhavo vidyate satah
Ubhayorapi drshtontah tvanayostattvadarshibhih
Avinashi tu tadviddhi yena sarvamidam tatam
Vinashamavyayasyasya na kashchitkartumarhati

Amidst chaos tranquility is bestowed
In action you see inaction
To see beyond the horizon you've got to unlearn your learning

Amidst the battlefield of Kurukshetra Brahmavidya was unveiled to Arjuna
That the Self is certainly Brahman
That which no weapons can kill

Nasato vidyate bhavo nabhavo vidyate satah
Ubhayorapi drshtontah tvanayostattvadarshibhih
Avinashi tu tadviddhi yena sarvamidam tatam
Vinashamavyayasyasya na kashchitkartumarhati

Yatra yogeshvarah krisno yatra oartho dhanurdharah
Tatra shrirvijayo bhutirdhruva nitirmatirmama
Om tatsaditi shrimadbhagavadgitasupanishatsu
Brahmavidyayam yogashastre shrikrishnarjunasamvade
Mokshasannyasayogo nama ashtadashodhyahah
5. Meditations At Dawn (4:55)
Pratah smarami hrdi samsphuradatma tattvam
Sat chit sukham paramahamsa gatim turiyam
Yat svapna jagara sushuptam avaiti nityam
Tad brahma nishkalam aham na ca bhuta sangham

Pratar bhajami manasam vacasam agamyam
Vaco vibhanti nikhila yadanugrahena
Yan neti neti vacanair nigama avocuh
Tam deva devamajam achyutam ahuragryam

Pratar namami tamasah paramarka varnam
Purnam sanatana padam purushottam akhyam
Yasminnidam jagad asheshamashesha murtau
Rajjvam bhujangama iva pratibhasitam vai
6. Advaitamrta (4:53)
Svaprakasham tamatmanam aprakashah katham sprshet

Ahamasmi sadabhami kadachinaham apriyam
Brahmaivaham atah siddham satchidanandalakshanam

Riding the waves of Maya but seeing Brahman everywhere
Surfing the waves of duality but witnessing non-duality

Universe which is inert has no independent existence
All of it depends on consciousness for its existence

Ahmasmai sadabhami kadachinaham apriyam
Brahmaivaham atah siddham satchidanandalakshanam

The world appears like a mirage but it is not an illusion
At the dawn of knowledge I see the world like a reflection
In the mirror of consciousness

In my consciousness the universe rises
My consciousness is all that becomes the world
Of names and forms

Svaprakasham tamatmanam aprakashah katham sprshet

In the primordial sleep of ignorance the Self
Assumes the form of heavens and hells
Pain, pleasure, body and mind rise to destroy freedom as it were

Ahmasmai sadabhami kadachinaham apriyam
Brahmaivaham atah siddham satchidanandalakshanam
7. Natural Born Ignorance (6:09)
"The idea of a thing where it does not really exist is what the wise call Adhyasa"

This Adhyasa is Avidya
Worshipping the creator whose existence is devoid of reason
This in itself is caused by the natural born Avidya

Fools worship the nameless and formless with a name
Who kill for pleasures in heaven, none has seen

In him passions are unquelled
He sees his lord separate from the world and himself
His beliefs sanctify his weakness of mind, he seeks a place free from
Limitations when what limits is his ignorance
By seeking the eternal he becomes an eternal sufferer

Psychos who self-create a playground for their inadequacy
Their halo of thorns fools many who become blind after gaining sight

It is the strong who can survive the temptation to do the lord's work
Those monuments we worship in blindness kill us every second

Itishvarac ca nryate srashtrtve paramatmani
Svamibhrtyadibhedopi nakhandaciti drshyate

In the name of your lord, the meek shall inherit the weak
In the name of your god, the strong shall become the meek
In the name of your almighty, grace becomes divine disgrace
For once in the name of your Self! Destroy this delusion!
8. Immortality Roars (2:14)
Avidyopadhiko jivo mayopadhika ishvara
Mayavidyagunatita brahma vedantadindima

Sakaram ca nirakaram sagunam cagunatmakam
Tattvam tadbrahma paramamiti vedantadindima

Namaharupabhimana syatsamsara sarvadehinam
Saccidanandadrshti syanmuktir vedantadindima

Saccidanandasatyatve mithyatve namarupayo
Vijnate kimidam jneyamiti vedantadindima
9. Reversing The Currents (5:32)
What is seen is not the seer
The witnessing seer cannot be objectified
Through the words of Shruti the seer is seen like a reflection in the mirror

"When the mind, withdrawn from the perception of the external objects through the five sense, appreciates its own awareness and appreciates truth"

Who am I?
What am I? Atma Kim?

Aham satyasvarupam
Aham chinmayarupam
Aham anandarupam
Iti upadesha saram

Ishvararpitam necchaya krtam
Cittashodakam muktisadhakam

The objectified universe fleets every moment
The witness that I am invariable in all perceptions
The I remains as the witnessing consciousness
As the unchanging, unceasing, untainted reality

Atma Kim?
Who am I? What am I?

Aham satyasvarupam
Aham chinmayarupam
Aham anandarupam
Iti upadesha saram
10. Venerable Opposites (5:46)
Brahman I am. Maya you are
Purusha I am. Prakrti you are
Shiva I am. Shakti you are4.
Pati I am. Patni you are

Om shivaya namah
Om rudraya namah
Om ugraya namah
Om haraya namah

I am the awareness
I am the consciousness
I am the absolute
I am the eternal

Om umayai namah
Om lalitayai namah
Om aryayai namah
Om shivayai namah

You are the names and forms
You are the creative matrix
You rule the changes in all
You conceal me and reveal me

Brahman I am. Maya you are
Purusha I am. Prakrti you are
Shiva I am. Shakti you are4.
Pati I am. Patni you are

Om namah shivayai ca namah shivaya

I am the ascetic, you are the all beautiful
From you emanate the universe, while I am the silent witness
Your dance enchants the world, My Tandava sublates the world
The five elements merge in you, while I transcend them all

Om namah shivayai ca namah shivaya

Ahameko namekaschit nahamanyasya kasyachit
Na tam pashyami yasyaham tam na pashyami yo mama

Om aryayai namah
Om shivayai namah
Om shivaya namah
Om rudraya namah
11. Avidya Nivrtti (4:48)
"The Lord I am, present everywhere I was prior to everything else.
I am the cosmic womb
I am the born and that which is to be born
I have faces in every direction and the indweller of beings"

Unborn and eternal he is,
Permanent and primordial his nature

Om jaya shankara shiva shankara deva
Om jaya shankara shankara maha deva

"From me alone everything is born. In me, everything is established.
In me, everything is resolved. I am that Brahman which is secondless."

Om jaya shankara shiva shankara deva
Om jaya shankara shankara maha deva

He is the soul of the universe
He is the Self of all

Om jaya shankara, om jaya shankara
12. Not The Seen But The Seer (4:54)
Through the plea of the Devas to defeat Tarakasura
She incarnated as the daughter of Himalaya to seek the hand
Of the Mahadeva with that union Skanda was born
To crush Tarakasura thus the Gita of the
Devi got revealed to Himalaya

Not subject to destruction
Not limited by space
Not bound by time
She shine as the...

Pratyagatmasvarupinim
She is not the seen but the seer

The closer you get to the meaning of all
You see her shining in every cognition
You mistake her like the way
You miss the rope for the snake
All that you see is her projection
And yet she is none of what she has become
Sagunabrahma svarupinim
Nirgunabrahma svarupinim

With her grace I adorn this grief
With her grace I adorn this bliss

With her grace I adorn this grief
With her grace I adorn this bliss

Ahameva sa soham vai nishcitam viddhi parvata
Maddarshanam tu tatra syadyatra jnani sthito mama

Not subject to destruction
Not limited by space
Not bound by time
She shine as the...

Pratyagatmasvarupinim
She is not the seen but the seer
13. Adiguru Namastubhyam (2:07)
Vatavitapi samipe bhumibhage nishannam
Sakalamunijananam jnanadataramarat
Tribhuvanagurumisham dakshinamurti devam
Jananamaranaduhkhacheda daksham namami

Citram vatatarormule vrddha shishya gururyuva
Gurostu maunamvyakhyanam shishyastu chinnasamshayah
Nidhaye sarvavdiyanam bhishaje bhavaroginam
Gurave sarvalokanam dakshinamurtaye namah

Vishvam darpana drshyamana nagari tulyam nijantargatam
Pashyan natmani mayaya bahirivod bhutam yatha nidraya
Yah sakshat kurute prabodha samaye svatmanam evadvayam
Tasmai shri guru murtaye nama idam shri dakshinamurtaye

Yasyaiva sphuranam sadatma kamatsat kalparthagam bhasate
Sakshat tattva masiti veda vacasa yo bodha yatya shritan
Yat sakshat karanad bhavenna punara vrttir bhavam bhonidhau
Tasmai shri guru murtaye nama idam shri dakshinamurtaye

Vishvam pashyati karya karanataya sva svami sambandhatah
Shishya caryataya tathaiva pitr putra dyatmana bhedatah
Svapne jagrati va ya esha purusho maya pari bhramitah
Tasmai shri guru murtaye nama idam shri dakshinamurtaye
14. Majestic Ashtavakra (6:25)
The mortal self subject to misery
Is bound by Besha Kala and Vastu
This misery is caused by the delusion
That the seeker and sought and dual

I am the one
Non dually one, I am

"You are really unbound and actionless,
Self-illuminating and spotless already.
The cause of your bondage is that you are
Still resorting to stilling the mind."
No effort will gain you the immortal self

Karmas and Dhyana are futile to me
Because I am forever free

Samadhi is of no use to me
Cittavrtti Nirodha is a fruitless pursuit
Because I am the forever free
Aham nitya muktah

"As I alone give light to this body, so I do to the world.
As a result the whole world is mine, or alternatively nothing is"

Through the Shruti alone one discovers that the Self is
Nitya shuddha buddha mukta svabhava
Akashavad anantoham ghatavat prakrtam jagat
Iti jnanam tathaitasya na tyago na graho layah

I am the one
Non dually one, I am
