Only Guru's Grace

Guru grant me the vision of the inner heart!

Blessed Lord of boundless love, I am at Your feet: (2)

To my life Your holy light please impart! . . . . . . . . . . . .


Despite having these two eyes, I am totally blind

And I can't discern the road to the Divine.

Every moment of my life I grope in the dark. (2)

I am crying to have Your helpful spark! . . . . . . . . . . .


Pilgrimages numerous I have made on this earth

And in all the holy rivers did I bathe,

And in every temple candles did I start: (2)

Yet like two river banks, we are apart . . . . . . . . . . .


I have always lived my life according to scripture

And the pain of yoga practice I endured.

In devotion sanity did from me depart. (2)

Yet my mind's distractions keep their upstart! . . . . . . . .


What can I ask for, since I am truly dumbspoken?

Having no instructions, my speech is broken!

How can this poor sinner claim that I'm in Your heart? (2)

Merciful "Kripalu" my strength Thou art! . . . . . . . . . . .

This bhajan was crafted by Narad Romaguera and Leela with the help of the book Streams of Love, Kripalu Ashram, Pennsylvania and the help of Veena Bhupendra Panchal.

Gurukripaa hi kevalam


Guru! maaraa antarani aankha ughaado re!

Sharane aavyo, swaami snehanaa aagara (2)

jivanapantha ujaalo re . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . .


charmachakshu to ye ankhanda andhaapo, prabhuno pantha ajaanyo,

pale pale hun gad gad kanthe (2)

premthi karato pokaaro re! . . . . . .


Aakhi ye avaninaan tirtho man bhatakyo, nadie nadimaan hun naahyo,

mandire mandire dipa jalaavyaa to ye (2)

laadhyo naa aamo kinaaro re . . . . . . . . . . .


gnaananaa granthone sevyaa nirantara, yogano sanga men saadhyo,

bhaktinaa bhaavamaan bhaana bhulyo to ye (2)

maryaanaa mananaa vikaro re! . . . . . . . . . . . .


mugo shun maagun ne myrkho shun bolun? papi kahun shun ke taaro?

'Kripaalu' karunaanaa nidhi mane to (2)

gurukripaano sahaaro re! . . . . . . . . . . . . .
