Dhaman Bhajan Mandal (Recorded in 1971)
વ્રજ કે આંગન રચ્યો હિંડોલો, વ્રજ કે આંગન રચ્યો;
સુર બ્રહ્માદિક દેખન આયે, શંકર તાંડવ નાચ્યો ... ટેક
vraj ke āňgan rachyo hindolo, vraj ke āňgan rachyo
sur brahmā-dik dekhan āye, shaňkar tāňdav nāchyo ... repeat
શુક સનકાદિક મુનિવર નારદ, હિંડોળો દેખન આયે;
નંદકો લાલ ઝુલન હમ દેખ્યો, બડી લૂંટ હમ પાયે ... ૧
shuk sanakā-dik muni-var āye, hindolo dekhan āye
naňda-ko lāl jhulan ham dekhyo, badi luňt ham pāye ... 1
વ્રજ કી નાર અટા ચઢ દેખે, અપનો તન મન વારે;
પરમાનંદ દાસ કો ઠાકોર, ચિત્ત ચોર્યો તનકો રે ... ૨
vraj ki nār atā chaDh dekhe, apano tan man vāre
paramā-naňda dās ko thākor, chit-ta choryo tan-ko re ... 2
While conveying dissertation on matters of spiritual wisdom often our ancient enlightened saints used metaphors. Here, the devotional poet Parmanand Das has used metaphor of large swing-board (Hindolo). Singing such Bhajans uplifted the spiritual joy of those who could understand the profound meaning of the otherwise poetic expression, which enthralled the common masses.
A swing-board is an implement that elevates playful ecstasy to greater heights; similarly spiritual meditation acts to uplift the soul to sublime joy of attainment of enlightenment.
0. Bhagvan Shri Krishna has erected a splendid large swing-board in the foreground of Vraj, Entranced by the swing-board, several saintly devout, deities inclusive of Brahma have come to see it and Lord Shankar has enacted Taandav dance driven by spiritual joy.
1. Great many sages and saints ranging from Shuk, Shounak, the great sage Narad too arrived to see the swing-board on which, the son of Shepherd kind Nanda, Krishna was swinging. It was like stealing bounty of ultimate joy for us.
2. Women folk of Vraj, ran up to terraces of their homes have devoted themselves with body and mind to attain spiritual succour. Even Saint Parmanand Das exclaims that Krishna has taken hold of his heart.
