vandhE mAtharam

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFvXvU9jxwg

Here is the translation in prose of the above two stanzas rendered by Sri Aurobindo Ghose. This has also been adopted by the Government of India's national portal

The original Vande Mataram consists of six stanzas and the translation in prose for the complete poem by Shri Aurobindo appeared in Karmayogin, 20 November 1909.

vande mātaram
sujalāṃ suphalāṃ
malayajaśītalām
śasya śyāmalāṃ
mātaram
vande mātaram

śubhra jyotsnā
pulakita yāminīm
phulla kusumita
drumadalaśobhinīm
suhāsinīṃ
sumadhura bhāṣiṇīm
sukhadāṃ varadāṃ
mātaram
vande mātaram

I show gratitude to thee, Mother,
richly-watered, richly-fruited,
cool with the winds of the south,
dark with the crops of the harvests,
The Mother!

Her nights rejoicing in the glory of the moonlight,
her lands clothed beautifully with her trees in flowering bloom,
sweet of laughter, sweet of speech,
The Mother, giver of boons, giver of bliss.

Apart from the above prose translation, Sri Aurobindo also translated Vande Mataram into a verse form known as Mother, I Bow to Thee.

Sri Aurobindo commented thus on his English translation of the poem:[7]

“   It is difficult to translate the National Song of India into verse in another language owing to its unique union of sweetness, simple directness and high poetic force.   ”

Friends,

This prvachanam of AcArya of Sringeri is interesting, he talks about Sandhyavandam at 7th and 18th minute of the above talk.

I am currently out of town, hence i would be able to proceed with the procedure thread only when i am back to my place. Meantime, this anugraham of AcArya is blessing.

I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have
compassion on whom I will have compassion.
So then [it is] not of him that willeth,
nor of him that runneth, but of
God that sheweth mercy.

It isn't necessary to read all of the Gita. One can get the essence of the Gita
by repeating the word ten times. It becomes reversed and is then 'tagi'. The
essence of the book is:
'O man, renounce everything and worship God.'

Humble yourselves therefore
under the mighty hand of God,
that he may exalt you in due time:
Casting all your care upon him;
for he careth for you.

Once a devotee of Kanchi Mahaperiyava went to have darshan of him and pleaded his low income was not enough to carry
on the day to day expenses, and also to marry way his daughter.  Mahaperiyava asked: Do you chant any swami slokas?
He said: I am chanting Kandhar Anubhuti every day apart from sandhya vandanam on the three occasions on any day.
Mahaperiyava said: In Kandar Anubhuti itself there is a request to Skanda to confer the you enough income, why do you
worry? Continue to chant.

The devotee was wondering. Mahaperiyava explained: See  the last song. GuruvAi, varuvAi aruLvAi guhane!  varuvAi means
income also, he will give enough income to you in due course. Do not worry. Keep chanting Kandhar Anubhuti.

What comes ,comes on its own!(whether we invite it or not )

Tamizh is such a wonderful language ,so expressive and succinct.People think that there are not enough alphabets to support it phonetically but the richness of this ancient language is elsewhere!

What Joy! Tamizl inbam.
