Aarti Kunj Bihari Ki lyrics

Aarti kunj bihari ki, shri girdhar krishna murari ki

Gale mein baijanti mala, bajave murali madhur bala
Shravan mein kundal jhalakala

Nand ke anand nand lala
Gagan sam ang kanti kali, radhika chamak rahi aali

Ratan mein thadhe banamali
Bhramar si alak, kasturi tilak, chandra si jhalak

Lalit chhavi shyama pyari ki
Shri giradhar krishnamuraari ki

Aarti kunj bihari ki , Shri girdhar krishna murari ki

Kanakmay mor mukut bilse, devata darsan ko tarse
Gagan so suman raasi bares

Baje murchang, madhur mridang, gwaalin sang
Atual rati gop kumaari ki Shri giradhar krishna murari ki

Aarti kunj bihari ki, Shri girdhar krishna murari ki

Jahaan se pragat bhayi ganga, kalush kali haarini shri ganga,
Smaran se hot moh bhanga

Basi shiv shish, jataa ke beech, harei agh keech;
Charan chhavi shri banvaari ki. Shri giradhar krishnamuraari ki...

Aarti kunj bihari ki, Shri girdhar krishna murari ki

Chamakati ujjawal tat renu, baj rahi vrindavan benu
Chahu disi gopi gwaal dhenu

Hansat mridu mand, chandani chandra, katat bhav phand
Ter sun deen bhikhaari ki, Shri giradhar krishnamuraari ki

Aarti kunj bihari ki, Shri girdhar krishna murari ki

Are Dwarpalo Kanhaiya Se Keh Do lyrics

Dekho dekho yeh garibi yeh garibi kaha le
Krishna ke dwar pe biswas leke aaya hoon

Mere bachpan ka yeaar hai mera Shyam
Yeh hi soch kar mein aash kar ke aaya hoon

Are dwarpalo Kanhaiya se keh do - 2
Ke dar pe Sudama karib aagaya hai - 2

Haa - bhatakte bhatakte naa jaane kaha se
Bhatakte bhatakte naa jaane kaha se

Tumhare mahal ke karib aagaya hai
Tumhare mahal ke karib aagaya hai

O Are dwarpalo uss Kanhaiya se keh do
Ke dar pe Sudama karib aagaya hai - 2

Naa sarpe hai pagri naa tan pe hai jaama
Baatado Kanhaiya ko naam hai Sudama
Ha baata do Kanhaiya ko naam hai Sudama - 2

Naa sar pe hai pagri
Naa tan pe hai jaama
Bata do Kanhaiya ko naam hai Sudama
Ho naa sar pe hai pagri naa tan pe hai jaama

Baata do Kanhaiya ko naam hai Sudama
Ho baata do Kanhaiya ko naam hai Sudama

Ek baar Mohan se ja kar ke kah do
Tum ek baar Mohan se ja kar ke kahe do

Ke milne sakha pad nasib aa gaya hai - 2

Are dwarpalo Kanhaiya se keh do
Ke dwar pe Sudama karib aageyaa hai - 2

Sunte hi doude chale aaye Mohan
Laagaya gale se Sudama ko Mohan
Ha Laagaya gale se Sudama ko Mohan - 3

Hua Ruksmani ko bahut hi achambha - 2
Yeh mehmaan kaisa ajeeb aageyaa hai - 2

Barabar pe apne Sudama ko bithaye
Charan aansuon se shyam ne dhulaye - 3

Na ghabraao pyare jara tum Sudama
Khushi ka shama tere karee baa gaya hai - 3

Badi Der Bhai Nandlala lyrics

Bari der bhai nandalala
Teri rah take brijbala

Gwal bal ik ik se puchhe
kaha hai murli wala re.

Bari der bhai nandalala
Teri rah take brijbala

Koi na jaye kunja gali mein
Tujha bin kaliya chunne ko
Taras rahe hai jamuna ke tat
Dhun murli ki sunane ko
Ab to daras dikhade natkhat
Kyon duvidha me dala re

Bari der bhai nandalala
Teri rah take brijbala

Sankat mein hai aaj vo dharti
Jis par tune janam liya
Pura kar de aaj wachan vah
Gita me jo tune diya
Koi nahi hai tujh bin mohan
Bharat ka rakhwala re.

Bari der bhai nandalala
Teri rah take brijbala

Gwalbal ek ek se puchhe
Bari der bhai nandalala
Teri rah take brijbala
