Krishna bhajan Akhiyaa Hari darsan ki pyaasi by Jagjit Singh

Lyrics of Krishna bhajan: Akhiyaa Hari darsan ki pyaasi

Krishna Surdas

No one knows the pain I go through on account of separation from Krishna.

अखियाँ हरि दरसन की प्यासी

देख्यो चाहत कमल नयन को

निस दिन रहत उदासी

अखियाँ हरि दरसन की प्यासी

केसर तिलक, मोतिन की माला

बृन्दाबन के बासी

नेह लगाय त्याग गये तृन सम

डारि गये गल फांसी

अखियाँ हरि दरसन की प्यासी

काहू के मन की को जानत

लोगन के मन हासी

सुरदास प्रभु तुम्हरे दरस बिन लेहों करवट कासी

अखियाँ हरि दरसन की प्यासी

देख्यो चाहत कमल नयन को

निस दिन रहत उदासी

Meaning of Krishna bhajan: Hari darshan ki pyasi akhiya

This is a bhajan resounding with virah, the longing that Surdas feels for Krishna.

Surdas says: My eyes are thirsty for a glimpse of Krishna. I want to see the lotus-eyed Krishna. I don't see him, and that keeps me sad and restless everyday.

Krishna, who wears a saffron tilak, and a pearl necklace; Krishna who belongs to Vrindavan. After stealing my heart he has left me like a worthless blade of grass.

No one knows the pain I go through on account of separation from Krishna. People make fun of me, not knowing my pain. Krishna, without seeing you, I cannot rest.

Surdas

Krishna bhajan Akhiyaa Hari darsan ki pyaasi by Jagjit SinghThis bhajan, sung by Jagjit Singh has been written by Bhakti saint, Surdas, a disciple of Mahaprabhu Vallabhacharya. He was one of the Asht-sakha poets in the temple of Srinath ji when the deity was still on Govardhan hill.

Surdas was a contemporary of Aurangzeb, and was residing in Mathura when the temple of Keshav Katra Dev (now Sri Krishna janmabhoomi temple) was demolished, according to his biography Khanjan Nayan written by Hindi litterateur Amrit Lal Nagar. The biography makes an interesting read, sprinkled with Surdas's poems on Krishna.

Surdas, like Mira Bai has been a great contributor to Braj sahitya, the literature of Vrindavan.
