Sweet Blue

i am not one for bhajans, but this one made everything else written about the Blue one, sort of...less. here it is, as someone wrote it. hats off!

adharam madhuram, vadanam madhuram,
nayanam madhuram, hasitam madhuram,
hridayam madhuram, gamanam madhuram,
madhuradhipate akilam madhuram.

vachanam madhuram, charitam madhuram,
vasanam madhuram, valitam madhuram,
chalitam madhuram, bhramitam madhuram,
madhuradhipate akilam madhuram.

venu madhuro, renur madhuraha,
panir madhuraha, padau madhuro,
nrityam madhuram, sakhyam madhuram,
madhuradhipate akilam madhuram.

there's more where that came from, but i'm sunk after learning just this much.

yep! there's nobody quite like you, Blue.

dear ms manisha : try this, if you like the canatic rendition.

Gitam madhuram pitam madhuram
Bhuktam madhuram suptam madhuram
Rupam madhuram tilakam madhuram
Madhuradhipate akhilam madhuram

"His song is sweet, His drinking is sweet; His eating is sweet, His
Sleeping is sweet. His beauty is sweet, His tilaka is sweet. Every
Thing about the Lord is completely sweet."

Dharanam madhuram taranam madhuram
Haranam madhuram ramanam madhuram
Camitam madhuram zamitam madhuram
Madhuradhipater akhilam madhuram

"His acts are sweet, His delivering is sweet,
His stealing is sweet, His enjoyment is sweet.
His heartfelt outpourings are sweet, His peace
Is sweet. Everything about the Supreme Lord
Is fully sweet."

Gunja madhura mala madhura
Yamuna madhura vici madhura
Salilam madhuram kamalam madhuram
Madhuradhipater akhilam madhuram

"His Gunja necklace is sweet, as is His garland.
His Yamuna River is sweet, her waves are sweet,
And her waters are sweet. The lotus flowers are also sweet.
Everything is completely sweet about the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the Lord of sweetness."

regards, ...rumbo!!

Can't agree more with you. And i like the way you refer to him (without taking the name really!!). I think there are more stanzas. Go to this site (you get the meaning as well, just in case you did not get meaning for a few words, like me)

(first time in my life I am responding to a blog..I never have time to read blogs any way. Too many others things to do in life. But after listening to this one yet another time yesterday, I felt like getting the lyrics and that is how I reached your site. And I liked your comments/words on it.)

Very close to my feelings about him. However 'tis 'madhuradhipateRakilam madhuram'.There must be a 'ra' sound in it? It better be in Sanskrit if it was written in Sanskrit!
