Reviews

Thomas Kumar Junk Germany:
I am just a music devotee always on the search for inspiring new sounds and musicians.
I really love your playful approach on the vedas and it made my heart jump of happiness to hear the love and devotion in your voice.

Malati Priya dasi Ireland:
Your Soul Time CD is deep. I thought it was more appealing to adults, but then found that my children of 14 and 10 were listening regularly to it. You could open a fan club! They saw you on stage a few times, and find you a great actor. Because they know you in this way, they have also find entry into the deep meaning of your songs, or so is appears to me. Thank you for sharing your realizations. Where I live association is quite scarce, and I find your message very helpful original, dynamic and unique. We can't wait for more.

Arjuna das (SRS) UK:
These ingeniously Krsna-ized musical hits on your Soul Time CD are unique. Beautifully sung, poignantly phrased and irresistible!

Bhagavati dasi (KKS):
I am sitting at work listening to your Soul Time CD and just wanted to tell you how incredibly inspiring this is.The devotional emotions in the songs are very 'contagious'. They make me feel so eager to just grab
my Bhagavad-Gita and sit and read. It is so hard to keep inspired while working with non-devotees, doing completely inconsequential work
for eight hours a day or more, and this really makes the difference.

Havi das (ACBSP) Florida USA:
I love your Soul Time CD! Your recordings are of a very good production that requires work and talent.

Julia Burroughs UK:
Just wanted to say that we love your Soul Time CD!



Gandharvika das (SRS) UK:
I seriously think you should advertise your Soul Time CD as a new anti-depressant....... with no bad side effects!!!
I love it and thank you so much for making it.



Lalita-sakhi dasi USA:
We so much liked your song Let's Go on Harinam on your CD --
so much that we are joining the Harinam party at our local temple.


Syamamayi dasi (SDG) Ireland:
Your Soul Time CD is a real treasure and
expression of talent in Krishna consciousness.
I was very much uplifted and moved by it.
Many of the lyrics have deep meaning for me.
It brought me through a transition in life.
As I listened again and again I gained strength,
and new appreciation for KC. awoke in my heart.
Thank you so much for enlivening us in this way.

Sakhyarasa Prema das (JPS) England:
Thanks for your latest CD with those great classics.
I heard that you have performed some of the songs
at the Conway Hall and it was a smash hit!
We were listening to it at Rasalila's birthday party.
Everyone was singing along in stitches laughing.
Thanks for bringing a little more happiness into our lives

Arnus Zdanevicius:
Thank you so much prabhu for your Soul Time CD.
It’s beautiful!
And you can even learn something from it! ☺
PS My favourite track is “Thank You”.

Track Name: Hare Krishna
The most wonderful sound I ever heard

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare

All the splendour of the world in these sacred words

I just learned to chant Hare Krishna
Forever and a day these names will always stay with me

When I started to chant Hare Krishna
I finally had found how wonderful a sound could be
Hare Krishna
Chant it loud and there’s music playing
Chant it soft and it’s my way of praying
Hare Krishna
I’ll never stop chanting Hare Krishna

Lyrics based on the original lyrics by Stephen Schwartz

Composer: Stephen Schwartz
Track Name: Give it a Chance
I know what you’re thinking
You wonder what I’m doing
Chanting with the Krishna’s in the streets
That’s just a first impression
What good’s a first impression
If you knew them like I do
It would change your point of view

If you could see them through my eyes
You wouldn’t wonder at all
If you could see them through my eyes
I guarantee you would fall like I did

When we’re in public together
I hear society moan
But if they could see them through my eyes
Maybe they’d leave us alone

How can I speak of their virtues
I don’t know where to begin
They’re pure. They’re smart and so funny
They don’t smoke or drink, like you do

Yet, when we’re chanting “Hare Krishna”
They sneer when they see us all dance
But if they could see them through my eyes
I’m certain they’d understand

Please chant Hare Krishna
Why don’t you give it a chance
At least read the Bhagavad Gita
And you’re always welcome to dance

Lyrics based on the original lyrics by Fred Ebb

Composer: John Kender
Track Name: Never Alone
Close every door to me
Hide all the world from me
Bar all the windows
And shut out the light

Do what you want with me
Hate me and laugh at me
Darken the daytime
And torture my night

If my life were precious
I would ask, “Will I live or die”
But I know the answers
Lie far from this world

Close every door to me
Keep those I love from me
Devotees of Krishna
Are never alone

For they know they will find
True peace of mind
By chanting the Holy
Names of the Lord

Just give me numbers
Instead of my name
Forget all about me
And let me decay

I’m not this body
It’s OK
To destroy it completely
Then throw it away

If my life were precious
I would ask, “Will I live or die”
But I know the answers
Lie far from this world

Close every door to me
Keep those I love from me
Devotees of Krishna are never alone
For we know how to find true peace of mind
And we have been promised to go back home

* * * * *

Lyrics based on the original lyrics by Tim Rice

Composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber
Track Name: Thank You
Thank you Srila Prabhupāda
At your guru’s request
You so kindly brought love of Krishna
To deliver us in the West
Chant sixteen rounds daily
Follow the four regulations
And distribute my books
That was your request
That was your perfect formula
To always chant Hare Krishna
And if we could, and if we would
You promised that if we’re sincere
Love of God would appear

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna
Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama
Rama Rama Hare Hare

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna
Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama
Rama Rama Hare Hare

Thank you

Lyrics based on the original lyrics by Stephen Schwartz

Composer: Stephen Schwartz
Track Name: Take Him Home
My dear Lord
Hear my prayer
In my need
You have always been there
He was so young and afraid
Should I assume You test my faith
Then if so, You may know
That I miss him so

What have I done that was so wrong
For my son to die so young
You can take, You can give
So take my life and let him live

What have I done
That was so wrong

Bring him peace
Bring him joy
He was so young
He was only a boy

And I know
Of course I know
He's not really my son
But a spirit soul

Though that's true
I do miss him so
Take him home
Please take him home
Take him home

Lyrics based on the original lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer

Composer: Claude-Michel Schönberg
Track Name: Have Mercy
There out in the darkness
A devotee is living fallen from grace, fallen from grace
The Lord is my witness, Who'll never yield
'til they come face to face
'til they come face to face

He knows his way in the dark
And the way of the Lord
That those, who follow His will
Shall have their reward

And those who fall in maya
The pain and shame

As it’s written in all the scriptures
The need of sacrifice
That those who falter, and those who fall
Must pay the price

Lord hear my plea
Have mercy, have mercy

I am begging You
Please have mercy on me

* * * * *

Lyrics based on the original lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer

Composer: Claude-Michel Schönberg
Track Name: One Night
One night I woke up with a sigh
Amazed and wide awake
That night You were so kind
To appear in a dream. What to say

Without a trace of pure devotion
I never had a notion
You’d appear this way
But there You were
Beyond my wildest hopes
Did occur that night

That night my heart became so light
Remembering that wonderful sight
Overnight - to my delight - life felt so right

Never I had set my heart on
For You to give Your darshan
To this fallen soul

But there You were
Beyond my wildest hopes did occur
That night

That night I woke up with a sigh
Thrilled, fulfilled, amazed and wide awake

When I glanced at my watch it was around one thirty
so I lay down again and closed my eyes, still in a daze
I was too blissful to go to sleep again
I decided to rise and chant my rounds
I had a shower and chanted sixteen rounds
Well before mangal arati

O my Lord, let me never forget You
Let me always embrace that dream
The way You looked. The way You

My dear Lord
What I thought could never ever happen to me
by Your Grace took place that night


* * * * *

Lyrics based on the original lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Composer: Leonard Bernstein
Track Name: If I Succeed
Maybe this time I’ll be steady
Maybe this time I will stay
Maybe this time for the first time
Maya won’t lure me away

To be steady, at last
O if this time I could last
Not fall in Maya anymore
Like the last time and the times before

Everybody likes a devotee
So nobody likes me
To be peaceful. To be blissful
That’s what I long to be

When all the odds are in my favour
No more falling down
If indeed I’ll succeed
My life would be complete

Everybody loves a devotee
So nobody loves me
To be fixed up and fired up
That’s what I long to be

When all the odds are in my favour
No more falling down
If indeed I’ll succeed
My life would be finally complete

* * * * *

Lyrics based on the original lyrics by Fred Ebb

Composer: John Kender
Track Name: A Dream
I dreamed a dream of times gone by
When hope was high and life excited
When you were there to certify
That ISKCON thrived and stayed united

Saints and sinners lived with us
To learn to be Krishna conscious
With you there as the fountainhead
Who would bring us all back home to Godhead

There were those when you did leave us
By Kali’s sway became ambitious
Who for fortune, name and fame tore our hopes apart
Slowly turning our dreams to shame

I dreamed a dream of times gone by
When we were young and life excited
We dreamed of how in every town and village
There would be a temple - all united

I still hope it will come to be
That I will see it happen sometime
But, there are dreams that will never be
And dreams that are once in a lifetime

I never thought that it would be
So different from the way it had been
So unlike of how it could be
But, Kali can't kill this dream I dreamed

Lyrics based on the original lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer

Composer: Claude-Michel Schönberg
Track Name: The Pain of Separation
There‘s a grief that can’t be spoken
And despair goes on and on
It’s the pain of separation
Now all of you have gone

How we sang with joy in kirtan
How we danced on Harinam
How we heard from Prabhupada
Sitting ‘round his Vyasasan

How by hook or crook
We tried to distribute a book
How we rose before sunrise
How we took a bath outside
With a bucket of icy water
In the middle of winter

Now all of you have gone

O my dear prabhus, it’s wrong
That I live though you are gone
How it hurts that you have left me
On my own to carry on
Who do I ask now for advice?
It’s such a sacrifice
What to do? Where to go?
O prabhus: I miss you so

O brothers and sisters
Where are you?
Have you all made it back home?
Are you in your siddha deha?

Or are you preaching with Srila Prabhupada
Once more?

* * * * *

Lyrics based on the original lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer

Composer: Claude-Michel Schönberg
Track Name: Let’s go on Harinam
What good is sitting all alone in your room
Hear the mridangas play
Let’s go on Harinam prabhus
Let’s chant the Holy Name

Put down your bead bag
Your book and the broom
Time for the Holy Name
Let's join the Harinam prabhus
We'll chant the Holy Names

Please do not hide
Let's go outside
Hear the conch shells blowing
Hurry up! The party’s going

What good is sitting all alone in your room
Hear the mridangas play
Let’s go on Harinam prabhus
Let’s chant the Holy Name

I once knew a bhakta called Andy
We joined in nineteen seventy in Miami
He really was quite lazy, always tired
As a matter of fact you'd call him uninspired

One day, after the sundar arati
We both went with the Harinam party
At the end when bhakta Andy was asked to lead
We were all dancing and chanting in ecstasy

I remember how Andy from that very day
He would burst into our rooms and he would say

What good is sitting all alone in your room
Hear the mridangas play
Let’s go on Harinam prabhus
Let’s chant the Holy Name

Put down your bead bag,
Your book and the broom
Time for the Holy Name
Let's join the Harinam, prabhus
We'll chant the Holy Names

And as for me, as for me
I pray one day I’ll be like Andy
How he used to burst into our rooms in Miami
If I could only - be just like him
The way he used to sing
Let’s go on Harinam prabhus

Chorus:
Let’s go on Harinam prabhus

All:
Let’s chant the Holy Name

Lyrics based on the original lyrics by Fred Ebb

Composer: John Kender
Track Name: Prabhupada
Is there anyone more worthy of praise
Then you gurudeva
Anyone but you, I should be more grateful too
Prahupāda. Prabhupāda

At your guru’s request
You came to the West
Leaving Vrindavan behind
Who has been so kind

Is there anyone more worthy of praise
Then you gurudeva
Anyone but you
I could be grateful too
Prahupāda. Prabhupāda

I can never repay
My debt in any way
You left Vrindavan behind
You have been so kind

So,
Is there anyone more worthy of praise
Then you gurudeva
No one else but you
I could be more grateful too.

I can never repay my debt in any way
Still I hope that what I do is
Somehow pleasing
Pleasing to you
