Rādhe Shyām with HARMONIUM KEYS

“Mantra, like Yoga and Ayurveda, is both a science and a practice. Mantra is the science of sound and vibration, primarily repeating a sound or verse audibly or inaudibly over a long period of time. A mantra is also the sound itself. Each mantra, depending on its length, has specific or general effects on oneself, others, and the world. Choosing a mantra wisely and pronouncing it properly are both very important factors in causing the desired effect. Mantra purifies the mind, just as āsana purifies the body and prāṇāyāma the breath. Sanskrit originated as the language of mantra and is perfectly designed for such purposes. The vast knowledge and wisdom that comes from ancient India was originally expressed in the Sanskrit language. “ Nicolai Bachman 

Mantra, meaning quoted from the Bhakti breakfast club!


Govinda: A name for the youthful Krishna. Literally, the lord of the cows ("go").


rādhe: Radha is the beloved of Krishna, the embodiment of spiritual love and the Goddess of the universe. Radhe is the addressive case, meaning "O Radha!" or "Hey Radha!"


shyām: A name for Krishna, meaning "dark" or "the dark one." Krishna is said to have beautiful dark blue skin, the colour of a raincloud.


gopāla: A name for the divine baby Krishna. Literally, shepherd of the cows ("go").




"This is a chant of the two that are One. Radha is the beloved of Krishna, his main squeeze among the Gopis. They merge on the full moon night as they dance in ecstasy."  ~ Krishna Das


"The inner meaning of Radhe is 'The one who adores Shyam.' Her name is so sacred that it is rare to be given the opportunity to even say it once, never mind repeatedly. This must have something to do with the blessings of Shyam, the dark one. May we witness their exchanges."  ~ Shyamdas


"Radhe Radhe! The word resonates from every street corner in the town of Vrindavan, where Radha eternally lives. Forgetting our names, and the bindings of our lives and personalities, upon hearing Krishna's flute we instantly transform into Radha, the beloved of our beloved, the secret lover within."  ~ Jai Uttal
