Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare.
Radhe Shyama Radhe Shyama Shyama Shyama Radhe Radhe
Radhe Krishna Radhe Krishna Krishna Krishna Radhe Radhe
Gouri Sankar Gouri Sankar Sankar Sankar Gouri Gouri
Uma Sankar Uma Sankar Sankar Sankar Uma Uma.

O my Jesus O Lord Jesus
Hail Hail Jesus O Father Father
O my Mary O Virgin Mary
Hail Hail Mary O Mother Mother
O my Buddha O Lord Buddha
Hail Hail Buddha O Saviour Saviour
O my Allah O Lord Allah
Hail Hail Allah O Father Father
O my Shakti O Adi Shakti
Hail Hail Shakti O Mother Mother

Is there not a nobler mission than eating, drinking and sleeping?
It is difficult to get a human birth, therefore try your best to realise in this birth.

Fie on that wretch, woe to that man
Who wastes all his life in sensual pleasures.
Time sweeps away, kings and barons,
Where is Yudhishthira? Where is Ashoka
Where is Shakespeare? Where is Valmiki?
Where is Napoleon? Where is Shivaji?

Be up and doing (in) Yogic Sadhan, you will enjoy Supreme Bliss.
Be up and doing (in) Brahma Vichar, you will attain Immortality (Kaivalya Moksha)

(Hare Rama Hare Rama…)

Can you expect real Santi if you waste your time in idle gossiping?
Can you enjoy Supreme Peace if you waste your time
In novels (and) newspapers?
In fights and quarrels?
In scandal, backbiting?

(Hare Rama Hare Rama…)

—–

Am I not Thou? Art Thou not I? One alone is, therefore true.
When the mind melts in the silence, you will have Self-realisation.
What have you learnt, tell me frankly from the Bihar and Quetta earthquakes?

Have you got now real Vairag? Do you practise Japa and Kirtan?
Here is a challenge to non-believers of the Hindu theory of transmigration:

Have you not heard the thrilling narratives of Santi Devi, of her past life?
Can you expect real Santi if you waste your time in cards and cinemas (cards and smoking)?
When your throat is choked at the time of death, who will help you for your salvation?

(Hare Rama Hare Rama…)
– Swami Sivananda
