Reviews

Pratima Patel (London UK):
I love your Soul Time 2 CD.
Can’t stop listening to it!

Felix Bell (Manchester UK):
My mum and dad and I loved your Soul Time 2 CD. It was amazing, amusing, instructive and beautiful. The song Sankirtan Man I find a great inspiration. I also found it a revelation to hear chanting to all those different music styles. I look forward to hear Soul Time 3.

Bharat Santani India:
Both the CD's I got in Vrindavan are just mind blowing. The lyrics are very, very good, and once you sit to listen to it, how times flies.
I cannot decide which track is my favorite, since I like them all.
I'm so grateful that I had an opportunity to meet you and that I had the chance to get the CD's.

Track Name: Lord Balarama
O Lord Balarama,, I long to see you again
Your servant am I and beg to remain
On bended knees I pray
That during Kartik I may
Offer You a light every night

O Lord Balarama, permit me in the dhama
To go on parikram around Govardhana
On bended knees I pray
That during Kartik I may
Attend Prabhupada’s mangala arati
In his Samadhi

O Lord Balarama,, I long to see you again
Your servant am I and beg to remain
On bended knees I pray
I may chant everyday
The Damodarastakam.
Namam Isvaram

For all of them are deep in maya and need to be saved you know
I'm going out as often as I can

Chorus:
That's why we call him
The sankirtan man

Lead vocals:
Prabhu, have you read that note on the notice board
Next month there will be a sankirtan meeting
right here in New York
Everyone is going to be there, who goes out.
It's great! Can't wait! It’s so far out
The kirtans will be so loud

Track Name: What Happened
When I was young I thought it would be easy
To become a pure devotee in this life
Now I know.
It’s not as easy as it seemed

Then I was so surrendered
Woke up way before four
How I long to feel the way I used to feel
With only devotion for You

Then I was inspired. Never felt tired
Living a life of austerity
Humbly following my authority
O Krishna, what happened to me

When I joined I thought it would be easy
To become a pure devotee in one life
Now I know. It’s not as easy as it seemed
To only have devotion for You

Now I’m uninspired. Always tired
Living a life of luxury
Gone are the days of austerity
O Krishna, what happened to me
What happened to me
Track Name: Three Holy Rivers
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna
Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama
Rama Rama Hare Hare

At Prayag in the north of India
Is a confluence of three holy rivers
Mother Ganga, Sarasvati and the Yamuna

In this holy place
Known as Triveni
A sannyasi, who couldn’t keep his vows
Once went there
To enter their waters in despair

Hopeful to give up his worldly life
He left home, children and wife
After failing in his strife
He went there to end his life

He was tired
So tired of failing
Tired of living
And afraid of dying
Did Triveni gave mercy to his soul
Track Name: My Supersoul
All glories to my Supersoul
Being fully in control,
He very lovingly allowed me
To try to be in control

He’s the only one I need
He provides me with all I need
Guides me from within
To return to Him

All glories to-o
All glories to-o
All glories to
All glories to
All glories to
My Supersoul

Haribol

He never leaves me on my own
Longs for me to come back home
Always guides me from within
To return to Him

He never leaves me on my own
Longs for me to come back home
Always guides me from within
To return to Him

All glories to-o
All glories to-o
All glories to
All glories to
All glories to
My Supersoul

I’m not even chanting my rounds

I’m such a pretender

Chorus:

Chorus:
Hare Krishna

That he himself starts to believe

Lead:
I’m such a pretender

Chorus:
Hare Krishna

Lead:
Pretending I’m doing so well

My followers as well

Chorus:

Track Name: Humiliation
You came
I was alone
I should have known
You were temptation

You smiled
Luring me on
My heart was gone
Too much temptation

No Haridas Thakur
That's for sure
If that could only be
Pity me

You were like an addiction
For you I gave up my mission
Just see my fallen condition
Not even a week had passed by
And you left me for another guy
And all I can do is cry

Temptation
Humiliation
Temptation
Humiliation
Track Name: Don't Tell Mata
Lead:
My parents think that I’m in London
Studying law and English
Little do they know
My parents don’t have an inkling
I joined the Hare Krishna’s
Three months ago

So, please sir
If you run into my parents
Don’t reveal my situation
Have mercy on me

Please hush up. Don’t tell mata
Shush up. Don’t tell pita
Don’t tell them, whatever you do

If you had a secret
You bet I would keep it
I would never tell on you

I’m breaking every promise that I gave them
So won’t you kindly do me a great big favour

And hush up, don’t tell mata
Shush up, don’t tell pita
Don’t tell them, whatever you do

If they knew you saw me in the street
Dancing in a pair of sheets
O my God
They might kill them selves

Chorus:
So please sir, if you run into his parents
Don’t tell them you saw him

Lead:
Please Have mercy on me
And hush up. Don’t tell mata
Shush up and don’t tell pita

Chorus:
Don’t tell them, whatever you do
If you had a secret, you bet he would keep it
He would never tell on you

Lead:
I’m breaking every promise that I gave them

Chorus:
So won’t you kindly, give him a break then

Lead:
Please hush up, don’t tell mata
Hush up, don’t tell pita
Don’t tell them, whatever you do

You can tell my auntie here and now
for she does puja anyhow

Chorus:
But don’t tell his mother what you know

Lead:
You can tell my uncle Vishnupad
As he loves kirtan and prasad

Chorus:
But don’t tell his father what you know
If they knew you saw him in the street
Dancing in a pair of sheets

Lead:
So please don’t tell my mata
Please don’t tell my pita

All:
Please don’t tell them what you know

Track Name: What To Do
I don’t know what to do prabhu
I just have too much to do
There’s only so much that I can do
So I do what I do
When I'm through, then I'm through
And I'm through. What to do

What can I do prabhu?
I'm sorry too
I guess, I'm not that surrendered

And though I used to care
I need the open air
You're better off without me, prabhu

It's not a lie, prabhu
You wonder why, prabhu
You always say that I am in maya

You mustn't knit your brow
You should have known by now
You've every cause to doubt me, prabhu

Chorus:
We are invited by Radhe Shyam prabhu
To come to the Holy dham prabhu

Lead:
I think that's what I'm going to do

Chorus:
First we go on parikram round Govardhan
Then we'll go on Harinam in Vrindavan dham

Lead:
What can I do prabhu

Chorus:
He had too much to do

Lead:
I guess, I'm not so surrendered

Chorus:
And though he used to care, he needs the open air

Lead:
You're better off without me prabhu

Chorus:
It's not a lie, prabhu
You wonder why, prabhu
You always said that he was in maya

Lead:
Please, don’t knit your brow

Chorus:
You should have known by now

Lead:
You've every cause to doubt me
What can I do

Chorus:
Too much to do

Lead:
What to do

Chorus:
Tell him the truth

Lead:
Well, I just have had enough of
you
Track Name: Too Late
A few years ago
He noticed a mole
On one of his knees

He never had seen it previously
Didn't take it seriously

A few months passed by
When he noticed how much
The mole had grown

Go and see the doctor
Requested his wife
He didn't follow her advice

One morning, half awake
He unconsciously scratched
The mole on his knee

When he saw some blood in his bed
He went to his doctor who said

Doctor:
I'm so sorry Mr. Fate
Why have you come this late
If only you would have listened to the advice
Of your good wife
We could have still saved your life
Now unfortunately Mr. Fate
It’s too late

Lead:
He.
Chorus:
Gave most of his life

Lead:
Is dying

Chorus:
Sacrificed most of his life

Lead:
Lord.

Chorus:
Please bless his soul

Lead:
He's leaving us after serving us
for so many years
Lord take him home

All:
Back home
Track Name: Maha Mantra

Track Name: My Prayer
When the time arrives of my death
Let only Your Names be in my head
I hope it will be peacefully
Spiritually

I pray I’ll be lying in a bed
Somewhere in Vrindavan dham
Surrounded by well wishers
While Prabhupada chants Your Holy Names
Hare Krishna, Hare Rama

O how I dread my coming death
Not the dying, looking forward to that
No, it is pain that might lie ahead
Pain, that's what I dread

And will I be sane
To remember You
Or chant Your Holy name

I pray that at the time of my death
Only Your sweet names
Will go through my head

Let it please be in the Holy dhama
Of Radha Shyamasundar
And Krishna and Balarama

While I hear Prabhupada chant

Especially
When I can't
