Chidananda

This is a favorite audio I have been known to share during yoga retreat weekends.  Students often ask for it, so I am sharing the audio, a translation, and a link for you to purchase it yourself if you enjoy it as much as I do.

Chidananda

performed by Deva Premal from the CD Love is Space


Chidananda roopah shivoham shivoham

Chidananda roopah shivoham shivoham

Manobuddhi ahamkara chita ni naham

Nachashotre jiv-hey nachaghrana netre

Nacha vioma bhoomir na tejoe na vayu

Chidananda roopah shivoham shivoham

Nachaprana saugno na vã puncha vayu

Navah sapto dhatoo navaa puncha koshah

Na waak pani paadam nachapasta paayu

Chidananda roopah shivoham shivoham

Na me dvãsha rago na me lobha mo-hoe

Mado naiva me naiva matsarya bhava

Na dharmo na chartoe na kaamo na moksha

Chidananda roopah shivoham shivoham

Na punyam na paapam na saukyum na dhukham

Na mantro na tirtham name daa na yug na ha

Aham bhoja namnaiva bhojyam na bhokta

Chidananda roopah shivoham shivoham

Na mrootyur na shanka na me jaati bheda

Pita naiva me naiva maata na janma

Na bandhur na mitram gurunaiva shishya

Chidananda roopah shivoham shivoham

Aham nirvekalpo nirakaara roopo

Vibureviapya sarvatra sarvendriyani

Sadame samatvah na muktir na bandha

Chidananda roopah shivoham shivoham
