Dedication to Guruji

Dear viewers,

My today’s blog post Cosmic chant is dedicated to our beloved Guruji Sri Paramahansa Yogananda whose birthday is celebrated by his devotees all over the world today!

“As a bright light shining in the midst of darkness, so was Yogananda’s presence in the world,” wrote His Holiness the Shankaracharya of Kanchipuram.”Such a great soul comes on earth only rarely, when there is a real need.”

A song born out of the depths of true devotion to God and continuously chanted, audibly or mentaly, until response is consciously received from Him in the form of boundless joy, is a spiritualized song.

Each of the Cosmic chants in this book has been spiritualized; that is, in various gatherings each song has been sung aloud and mentally until the chanters found actual response from God.

Singers of these songs who want the best results should chant them alone or with true devotees of God, with ever increasing devotion and fervor.

Words that are saturated with sincerity, conviction, faith, and intuition are like highly explosive vibration bombs that have power to remove the rocks of difficulties and to create the change desired.

The five states are —– chanting aloud ——- whisper chanting ——mental chanting —-subconscious chanting —-and superconscious  chanting.

One who sings these spiritualized  songs, cosmic chants, with true devotion will find God- communion and ecstatic joy, and through them the healing of body, mind and soul. Joy is the proof that God has Answered the Devotee.

In this book the majority of the chants are original compositions of Sri Paramahansa Yogananda. However, several chants are translations of well- known Sanskrit, Bengali, or Hindi songs in original adaptations by Paramahansaji.

Deliver us from delusion

Think ye in thy heart,

Lotus feet of thy Guru,

If you want to cross The ocean of delusion.

Shaming the white lotus  in purity,

Beyond all duality,

Guru, image of Brahma,

Deliver us from delusion!

—Bengali song.

I Will Be Thine Always

My Lord, I will be Thine always.

I may go far, farther than the stars,

But I will be Thine always.

My Lord, I will be Thine always.

Devotees may come, devotees may go,

But I will be Thine always.

My Lord I will be Thine always.

When I die, look in to mine eyes;

They will mutely say ,

“I will be Thine always,

“My Lord I will be Thine always.”

No Birth, No Death

No birth, no death, no caste have I.

Father, mother, have I none.

I am He, I am He; blessed Spirit,  I am He.

Mind, nor intellect, nor ego, chitta;

Sky nor earth, nor metals am I.

I am He, I am He; blessed Spirit, I am He.

– A translation of sanskrit chant by Adi Sankaracharya

 Ever New Joy

Joy, joy, joy, joy!

Ever new joy, joy!

Joy, joy, joy, joy!

Ever new joy, joy!

Joy, joy, joy, joy!

Sing this chant when you yearn to feel God as cosmic, endless joy.

This book on cosmic chants is available in all the centers of YSS/SRF.

Writing is something that helped me discover the creativity and the expressionism that was hidden under the deep layers of my soul. And me!
