transports me to an experience of Shri Krishna and his love for his devotees. The vocalizations are angelic.

I listen to this bhajan every day. It's so beautiful! Surdas’ faith in his Lord is immovable. When I close my eyes and listen, with each word I feel I am experiencing the plea of the devotee and the Master's love which protects him.
I read the translation of this bhajan before listening to it. Hearing that the Lord will always protect me, in this life and beyond, I was flooded with love, bliss, and gratitude. Tears of tenderness poured from my eyes and only increased as I listened to Shambhavi and the musicians.
This bhajan is a gem for me to come back to time and again, especially when I'm most in need of upliftment.
To me, Shambhavi's voice is like a string of pearls floating in air. I hear her devotion. This bhajan
connected me to my own deep knowing that Gurumayi's grace is everywhere and that I will take refuge in her as I navigate my way through these turbulent times.

What a beautiful bhajan! The singer's voice was truly exquisite. I experienced such bliss and a melodious serenity, reassuring me that I am held and supported by the Guru's grace.
Listening to this bhajan by Surdas left me dissolved in the serene bhakti of his words, as if I were standing in front of Prabhu Krishna. I intend to listen more times during the night when everything else is silent. From silence the real silence shall emerge and I shall merge into that.
As I listened to the bhajan, I was reading the meaning at the same time. I felt so much gratitude toward the Lord and Saint Surdas. With this example of the elephant king Gajendra, Surdas has shown our present situation and how true it is that, if we cry out to Lord Krishna, he will definitely protect us.
I find that the meaning of the bhajan has a lot to offer me at this time of the pandemic, and the melody supports the prayer in its full power. Listening to this bhajan is the tool for me to nourish my inner self with joy and love.
I love to listen to this bhajan
. I chose to sing this bhajan
in my final vocal exam for a degree in music. And so many times when I was practicing, I felt Govinda present in my inner being.
