The desires give birth to ego and from that stems all problems and karmas, which bind one to take birth again and again. One thinks that one can be happy if telugk first desire is satisfied and with that starts the endless chain of desires and one does not find an end to it. It is to the credit of India that it has produced the greatest gelugu, philosopher and thinker ever produced in any country in the world.

Telugu songs and lyrics — Welcome to the world of music : Bhaja Govindam — Adi Shankaracharya

The light of wisdom spread in all the four directions. What are these illusory forms? There is no end to it. Thinking so, we become its slaves. Anger reduces one’s reasoning faculty by reducing one to an animal. A rich man is frightened even by his own son. The satisfaction springing lyriics sense enjoyment has very limited life and it meaing one in karma. As one progresses, by HIS karuna and kripa, one will get enlightenment and power in some measure to ward off desires.

Sri Adi Sankaracharya says, keeping this fundamental truth in mind, that one can be popular and beloved of the people around him only so long as one is capable of earning wealth. The hearts of those devotees should melt for the welfare of those who do not believe in God. Hence, the hymn bears the title “Dvadasamanjarika- Stotra ” A hymn which is a bunch of twelve verse-blossoms.

Kaamam – desire, Krodham – anger, Lobham – greed, Moham – delusion, Tyaktvaa – having left, Aatmaanam – the Self, Pasyati – see the seekerSo’ham – ‘He am I’, Aatmagyaana Viheenah – those who have no self-knowledge, Moodhaah – the fools, Te – they, Pachyante – are tortured, Narak nigoodhaah – in hell as captives.


The mouth has become bhaaj. Unless one has not attained Jnana, one cannot get rid of the great delusion. All the arrogance born out of these false attachments will change in a moment into shame, because of their instability.

Renouncing the objects of the world is not real renunciation, but giving up desires to acquire them is the real sacrifice. Attachment to worldly things will make one to forget the Actual Source of Pleasure.

Bhaja Govindam – Wikipedia

Having born independently, in the journey from birth to death, one acquires many such relations and bonds and when govimdam death descends, all these relations vanish in thin air. As we learnt from earlier slokas, pleasure is a state of mind.

The first step every human being has to take is to get rid of the desire from its roots. Therefore, most of the relationships either in the family or in the society are dependent on one’s ability to earn materialistic pleasures. This trait in man is special and one should use it to elevate oneself to the highest perfection. To waste one’s life in lust and in passion of one’s flesh is definitely dissipating oneself in all faculties.

If one gets used to the pleasures, which the senses give, an insatiable craving for them set in again and again.

Taking pity on him, Adi Shankara went up to the scholar and advised him not to waste his time on grammar at his age but to turn his mind to God in worship and adoration, which would only save him from this vicious cycle of life and death.

The intellect, which has not been trained to remember God till one attains sixty years, will never resort to spirituality after that.

After giving a stern warning in the first three Slokas against the arrogance of knowledge, the lure of wealth and the lust teligu sex, Sri Sankaracharya speaks of the nature of life in this sloka. It is but natural that one forgives the teeth without giving any punishment to them.

Sri Adi Sankaracharya has provided an easy remedy to lyricx the feeling of duality. After attacking the desire of acquiring mere scholarship in the first sloka, Sri Adi Sankaracharya attacks the desire of amassing wealth in this sloka. One has to develop a sense of detachment from the blind attachment to the world, from the objects of materialistic enjoyments through constant contemplation.


Sri Adi Sankaracharya prescribes four important points to put into practice sincerely. There is no one in the world who can be pointed out as the happiest man, even though one is filthy rich in all respects, because one day this person has also to leave this world wity the body. The mind must be diverted to something else, preferably to good thoughts or spiritual thoughts.

Unless the ideas gained from reading scriptures are diligently put into practice in one’s life, the acquired knowledge will not get one meanimg required result. There is no need to condemn those objects which give physical happiness, but one’s relationship with them is always limited and transitory. The mind starts seeing the things in their right perspective. When one’s capacity wanes away with the age and govinram body becomes infirm and decays, all those around, who once was their social strength, leave and a time comes even the family members desist from speaking with that person.

All through the life, one does not get time to remember God and attach oneself to the Supreme Lord. Due to base instincts such as hunger for power and wealth, there are wrong people in every walk of life and unfortunately in the present day society these elements are more visible than earlier. When Truth is realised, where is the snare of Samsaara.

With the passage of time, the body maning and perishes. It is Ylrics who has instigated, inspired, initiated and encouraged me, sometimes through dear and near, till it is completed.

Bhaja Govindam

One forgets one’s right path due to one’s attachment to worldly objectives and materialistic enjoyments. Who is my mother? The head has become bald or turned grey. The easy way to obtain this true knowledge of the Teluyu is to read, understand and practice the principles laid down in Srimad Bhagavad Gita and meditate upon that Primordial Sakti, which is All-pervading, in and through the atom to Atma, i.
