Poetry: First Rays of the Sun
The Present Moment
First Rays of the Sun
These songs describe the joy that accompanies the first rays of the sun in the morning!
A song heralding dawn. Its lyrics evoke a series of positive images. Clouds turn from red to orange to yellow in the morning. The home, the courtyard and the garden are flush with nectar like light. The earth is lush green. Dew laden flowers are a visual delight. The sun cares for everything just like Mother Yashoda cares for Krishna, who manifests in everything around us.
A song heralding dawn in Raga Ahir Bhairav. Excellent rendition by Asha Bhosle. Beautiful lyrics. I don't understand most of the stanzas. Your help would be appreciated. Thanks!
