My Foolish Heart Lyrics

My foolish heart Why do you weep? You throw yourself away again Now you cry yourself to sleep. Cry yourself to sleep... My foolish heart When will you learn? You are the eyes of the world And there's nowhere else to turn. Nowhere else to turn... Bhaja Govindam, bhaja Govindam My foolish heart. Govindam Govindam Govindam My foolish heart My foolish heart My foolish heart... Raadhe Raadhe Govinda Govinda Raadhe Raadhe Govinda Govinda Govinda Bhaja Govinda Govinda Bhaja Govinda The words 「Bhaja Govindam」 are an exhortation to adore and love God. In the 8th century, the great saint, Adi Shankaracharya, wrote a beautiful hymn called 「Bhaja Govindam.」 It is a unique prayer as it unifies the path of Wisdom (Jnana Marg) and the path of Devotion (Bhakti Marg). Shankaracharya praises Devotion as a spiritual path that leads to liberation. The legend is that he was walking with his disciples when he saw an old scholar teaching his young students the rules of Sanskrit grammar. Shankaracharya told the old man that now that he was so old he should turn his mind toward God and stop wasting time. In every verse he described the ways that life is passing by and with it our opportunity to find freedom from suffering. Each verse was addressed to 「my foolish mind/heart,」 mudhamate in Sanskrit. I wrote a couple of verses in English with the same feeling.
