Give Me a Broader Mind

Mohana, make my mind broad in every way! . . . . . . . . . .


When a very angry person spits out words bitterly,

Help me please to tolerate this spray.

Help me to keep my tongue sweet and to speak softly:

Otherwise, not a word to say . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .


Give me an even outlook on life, accept all happily,

Save me from all moral decay.

Staring at their despair, or other's wealth to see:

Help me so that this mind of mine won't stray . . . . . . .


Let me see my Mother's image in every lady,

And have my glance upon her feet to lay.

Let Your love burn bright in all cells of this body,

And have only this purity display . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .


Even if a great big cobra should bite this devotee,

Let a smile on my face portray.

From everyone's heart a smile radiates brightly

If I love all my enemies today . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .


This shallow small mind of mine just You can take only;

Then all my sins will vanish away.

Please make my mind deep, beloved "Kripalu":

Give to me, now, eternal peace, I pray . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Viniti Muniji spent many days with Leela in 1983 going over each bhajan with word for word translations and then explaining any grey areas. Later after returning to America Leela crafted these bhajans to fit the meaning and melodies.

Motun Mana Mane De

Mohana! Motun mana mane de!


kadavaan vena kahe koi kopi, sahevaanan bala de,

mihun bole ra sanaa mori, nahi to mauna dhare . . . . .


vritti chalenaa paradhana bhaali, nitinaa raste vale,

duahkha daridritaa dolaafaadi, chhone saame dhase . . .. .


paranaarimaan murti maani, nirakhi nayano dale,

rome rome nirmalataani, jhalajhala jyoti jale . . . . . . . .


malakantun rahe mykhadun maarun, vishadhara chhone dase,

verathi hun naa balun, na baalun, sahunaan haiyaan hase . . . . .


paachhun le aa manahun naanun, saghalaan paap tale,

motun mana tun aapa 'Kripaalu'! shaashvata shaanti male . . . . . .
