Meerabai’s bhajan by Kishori Amonkar

A beautiful rendition of Meerabai’s bhajan by Kishori Amonkar

 

Words and interpretation

Mharo pranaam Banke Bihari ji
Mharo pranaam

Mor mukut mathya tilak biraja
Kundal alaka kari ji
Mharo pranaam Banke Bihari ji

Adhar madhur dhar bansi bajav
Ri jhiri jhawa braj nari ji
Mharo pranaam Banke Bihari ji

Ya chhab dekhya mohya Meera
Mohan giriwardhari ji
Mharo pranaam Banke Bihari ji

Interpretation:

My respects to Banke Bihari, Who has a crown of peacock-feathers,
a tilaka mark on the forehead and locks of hair hanging over his earring hoops.

With His sweet lips He holds and plays the flute
And playfully entices His dear Radha.

This image captivates Meera—this image of Mohana,
Who lifted Govardhana Mountain
