Song of Navavidha Bhakti

(Thars: Rama Hare Siya Ram)

Rama Hare Siya Rama Ram
Rama Hare Siya Rama Ram
Rama Hare Siya Rama Ram
Rama Hare Siya Rama Ram

Krishna Hare Radhe Shyama Shyam

There are four kinds of Bhaktas,
Arta, Jijnasu, Artharthi,
Jnani the wise of knowledge
Of these the wise is the best.
There are nine modes of Bhakti,
Sravana, Kirtan, Smaran,
Padasevan, Archan, Vandan,
Dasya, Sakhya, Atmanivedan,

(Rama Hare Siya Ram)

Sravan is hearing His Lilas,
Kirtan is singing His Name;
Smaran is His remembrance.
Padasevan is service of (His) feet.
Padasevan is service of country,
Padasevan is service of humanity,
Padasevan is service of sick,
Padasevan is service of poor,
Padasevan is service of parents.

(Rama Hare Siya Ram)

Archan is offering flowers,
Vandan is prostrations,
Dasyam is Servant Bhav,
Sakhya is His friendship,
Atmanivedan is Saranagati,
Atmanivedan is self-surrender,
Atmanivedan is Prapatti,
Atmanivedan is highest Bhakti,

(Rama Hare Siya Ram)

There is love between servant and master,
There is love between friends and friends,
There is love between father and son,
There is love between husband and wife,
(There is love between brother and sister).
Moha is infatuated love,
(Moha is finite)
Physical love is passion,
It is mixed with hatred,
Divine love is infinite,

(Rama Hare Siya Ram)

The nine modes of Bhakti
Are graded series of Divine Love,
Atmanivedan is highest Love,
This is Madhurya Bhav
(This is Para Bhakti)
In this the heart is the real flower,
This is offered to the Lord,
Two have become now one,
Oneness is the Reality.
(Para Bhakti is Jnan);
This is Sayujya Mukti.

(Rama Hare Siya Ram)
