Om Guru Om (Song)

Namah Shivaya....

Today, March 26th is Babaji's birthday, a day which any siddha least bothers about because of the fact that he was never born and he never dies. Even then, this is the day that Baba incarnated on earth for the liberation of so many souls! Baba's  work with his devotees is always silent work, though there is so much communication through the consciousness, which may seldom be realized quickly, due to the struggles of the body, mind, ego formed out of karmic structures. Baba's love and patience with devotees is always cherished in so many forms, and this song is one of the smallest form of that cherishing.


i must share that soon after i returned from the Sri Vidya havan in the ashram this month, i returned with lots of things necessary for growth and there was a good amount of release in various forms after that. At the same time there was an expression that seemed to burst forth in my mind in a form of words and as it flowed, i tried to give it a melody and this song was born :)


Surprisingly, i noticed that it was some kind of a random tune supporting the words in English and so i picked up the cellphone recorder to record it. After it was done with, when i played it, i felt it was a common expression that so many sadhaks have and thus made up my mind to work on the music. In a week it was done, but then something kept postponing it to be shared here.  I then knew that Baba's birthday was approaching and it would be nice to put it up before that. As i struggled to complete it, there were lot of technical issues coming up and work doubled up. The song was a short one and then an idea  came forth to add The Shivananda Arati to this English song to blend it even better with the lyrics. The percussion of congo was used during the lines of the arati to give the Eastern flavor. Now, as this was an English song, something was prompting to give this the best and so the flavor of the song was tried to be made more punchy and techno, but at the same time not wanting to miss the feelings of the lyrics. A lot of attempts have been made to add jingles and effects in every inch of the song and that is why it took so much time - but then i realized that the day it was possible to be completed was today - on the birthday!

This song is synchronized with Baba's beautiful messages in between. During the making of this beautiful song, in solitude, there were all kinds of emotions - laughter, fun, aggression, tears, excitement, sadness, silence, passion, meditativeness, dance, and what not... and probably these may be noticed, felt in the lyrics and music itself :) Very happy to share this creation with you on this auspicious day!

i cannot thank enough Bade Baba and Baba for the backing power and grace that makes everything possible... 

i believe that there was still room for improvement but taking the time into consideration and the urgency to post it here,  i assume that you will overlook the errors in the vocals/music :) Thanks! Stay Blessed!

THE LYRICS
Here is a soul who makes my heart sing loud
Here is a soul who pulls me out of the crowd
Picking me up with His love so strong
Making my heart sing this lovely song

Om guru Om, Om guru Om
Om guru Om, Om guru Om

He met me once when I’d lost my way
And held my hand to lead me the way
Reminding me of my soul agenda
He is my guru - my Shivananda

Om dhanya guru Shivananda,
Om dhanya guru Shivananda,
Tumme roop samaya
Tumme roop samaya
Avdhoot Nityananda ka
Om dhanya guru Shivananda

When we think of you our soul just cries
Within a moment our sorrow flies
You came to redeem so many souls
Why don’t we see your selfless goals?

To the world you are a man in red robe,
A monk moving around the globe
You are not what you seem to the world
You are beyond what our minds can even hold

Maata pita mitra mere, Shaktipath daatha,
Sharan mein tere aakar, Janam safal paaya
Om dhanya guru Shivananda

How can we thank you Baba for what you do
As you cleanse us, for getting us through
We bow to you our loving father
Bless us to keep us, going together

Dhyaan gyaan ke daatha, bhakti mukti daatha,
Aatma bhodh ka chinthan
Sab tumse paaya,
Om dhanya guru Shivananda

Chorus….

Om guru Om, Om guru Om
Om guru Om, Om guru Om

Love, acceptance, forgiveness you preach
By living these, is the way you teach
In our every moment your presence you share
Which only shows how much you care

Shiva-Shakti ke gyaatha, yantra-mantra daatha
Dhanya hue hum sab jann, aisa guru paaya
Om dhanya guru Shivananda

Om Shiva Omkaara Jaya Jaya Sadguru Omkaara
Om Shiva Omkaara Jaya Jaya Sadguru Omkaara

Here is the soul who made my heart sing loud
Here is the soul who pulled me out of the crowd
Picking me up with His love so strong
Making my heart sing this lovely song

Om Shiva Omkaara Jaya Jaya Sadguru Omkaara
Om Shiva Omkaara Sadguru Omkaara
Bramha Vishnu Sada Shiva Har Har Har Har Mahadeva
Bramha Vishnu Sada Shiva Har Har Har Har Mahadeva
Om Shiva Omkaara Jaya Jaya Sadguru Omkaara

He met me once when I’d lost my way
And caught my hand to lead me the way
Reminding me of my soul agenda
He is my guru - my Shivananda

Om dhanya guru Shivananda,
Om dhanya guru Shivananda,
Tumme roop samaya, Tumme roop samaya
Avdhoot Nityananda ka
Om dhanya guru Shivananda

Sing!
Narayan Narayan Om, Sadguru Narayan Narayan Om
Narayan Narayan Om, Sadguru Narayan Narayan Om
Narayan Narayan Om Sadguru, Narayan Narayan Om Sadguru
Narayan Narayan Om, Om Jai Sadguru Deva

Nityananda, Nityananda, Nityananda, Nityananda,
Shivananda, Shivananda, Shivananda, Shivananda,
Nityananda, Nityananda, Nityananda, Nityananda,
Shivananda, Shivananda, Shivananda, Shivananda

Om Sadhguru guru Nityananda
Om Sadhguru Shivanada
Om Sadhguru Nityananda
Om Sadhguru Shivanada
