ॐ Vandana ॐ


A blend of classical Indian music chants, hymns and melodies handpicked.

The title of this playlist relates mostly to the first track of the playlist, 'Mangalam'. It is a chant, calling for tranquility of everyone and everything in this world and beyond.The other songs in the playlist also have a similar feeling which somehow transports me to some ancient temple in the deep corner of my mind.

Vandanaa Trayee - Ravi Shankar

Lyrics - Sanskrit
Vakratunda Mahaakaaya Suryakotisamaprabha. Nirvighnam Kuru Me Deva Sarvakaaryeshu Sarvadaa.
Yaa Kundendutushaarahaaradhavalaa Yaa Shubhravastraavrtaa Yaa Veenaavaradandamanditakaara Yaa Shvetapadmaasanaa.
*(Yaa Brahmaachyutashankaraprabhrtibhir- Devaissadaa Poojitaa Saa Maam Paatu Sarasvatee Bhagavatee Nishsheshajaadyaapahaa.)
Gururbrahmaa Gururvisnuh Gururdevo Mahesvarah. Gurussaakshaat Param Brahma Tasmai Shri Gurave Namah.

O, Lord Ganesha of the curved trunk and massive body, the one whose splendor is equal to millions of Suns, please bless me so that I do not face any obstacles in my endeavors.
May that Goddess – Bhagavati – the blessed Saraswati presiding deity of learning and remover of our lethargy, laziness, and ignorance, kindly protect us. She is pure and white like the Jasmine, the full moon and the garland-like formation of dewdrops. She is dressed in a spotless robe. She has in her hand the auspicious instrument Vina. She is seated on a white lotus. She is the one who is always respected by Brahma the creator, Vishnu the preserver, Shankara the annihilator and other Gods.
The Guru is none other than the creator, Lord Brahma; he verily is Lord Vishnu, the preserver, and he truly is Mahesvara, the destroyer. He is the supreme Brahman himself. To such a Guru I offer my salutations.

Great to see so many people listening to the playlist. Some of you will be curious to know the lyrics the tracks as well. There you go -
