about

Let this temporary body be burnt to ashes, and let the air of life be merged with the totality of air. Now, O my Lord, please remember all my sacrifices, and because You are the ultimate beneficiary, please remember all that I have done for You.

lyrics

The time will come
when this body is done
material elements all become one
the life air merged with totality of air
I'll feel it's not fair
the place I'll go
I don't know where
don't want to be ripped away
from family and friends
my possessions
but yet it all ends
faced with the flashback
of where I slacked
ignoring the truth
letting ignorance distract
I struggle to put everything in full practice
but I know that doesn't make
these truths become factless
my weaknesses
my faults
but your names a catapult
so I can really vault
over every distraction
and every vice
it's so nice
I want to sing it twice
it's so nice
I want to sing the same song twice


vāyur anilam amṛtam
athedaḿ bhasmāntaḿ śarīram
oḿ krato smara kṛtaḿ smara
krato smara kṛtaḿ smara

Want to remember
all the things I've done for you
not the heinous deeds
that kept you from my view
when it's time for life
to flash before my eyes
let my body turn to ash
and let love arise
must aspire to fuel the fire
with a deeper purer more beneficial desire
need to retire from evolutionary cycle
Coz when the body expires
I'll no longer be Michael
so it's vital I'm not idle
in the search for self
unbridle from the temporary
regain my health
the highest wealth
of spiritual existence
but it seems so distant
requires persistence
so I can't stop
won't stop
even though I may be flawed
I'll keep on moving forward
please help me Lord
this feeling just cannot be ignored
until relationship with you
is fully restored


vāyur anilam amṛtam
athedaḿ bhasmāntaḿ śarīram
oḿ krato smara kṛtaḿ smara
krato smara kṛtaḿ smara


tasmād bhārata sarvātmā
bhagavān īśvaro hariḥ
So much anxiety
how can I be free?

śrotavyaḥ kīrtitavyaś ca
smartavyaś cecchatābhayam
No fear if we just hear
the glories of Svay Bhagavan

constant contact with the personal feature
is the only way that I'll surely meet ya
activities I pray to perform
in every stage of life even if I'm reborn

Hearing and glorifying
the most sweet
remembering and serving
your lotus feet
worshipping and offering my prayers
serving with no concern
for my own cares
becoming Your very best friend
surrendering my life
from beginning to end

now's the chance to enter your dance
all that it requires is your merciful glance

vāyur anilam amṛtam
athedaḿ bhasmāntaḿ śarīram
oḿ krato smara kṛtaḿ smara
krato smara kṛtaḿ smara
