05 Madana Mohana Ashtakam

Madana Mohanashtakam
————————————

‘Madana mohanastakam’ is really ‘mohanam’, a lovely prayer song. You can sing the melody and forget yourself, forget the world around, while at home or in a lonely forest or under a moonlit sky or in the pouring rain.

In the ‘karaavalamba stotram’, we seek Narasimha’s hands for our rescue,  whereas in Madana Mohanashtakam, we seek Sree Krishna’s feet. The eight slokas are simple, sincere and a heart -to heart appeal to the Divinity.


“Anthimabaandhava ( slokam 4 )  -Bagavan, you are my last bandhu, the only remaining relative, my last resort, who will be with me till my last breath” – what a cordiality between the  Creator and the created!
