LYRICS by Meerabai (16th century Rajasthani mystic)
(loose translation) How I love sitting at my Guru’s feet…nothing else gives happiness
other than being with him…rest all is maya and false dreams
“Mori lagi lagan Guru charanan ki, charan bina mohe kachhu nahi bhāwe
jhoothi maya sab sapnan ki, Lagan Guru charanan ki
Bhav sagar sab sookha gaya hai, Phikar nahin mohe tarannan ki
Lagan Guru charanan ki, Meera ki prabhu, Giridar nagar
Ulat bhaye mori nayanan ki, Lagan Guru charanan ki”
