Madhura Geetam – Prayer Series: 9

O Lord! Please Come and Reside in My Heart!

PrayerIn this series, we present, each month, a prayer kirtan composed by His Holiness Maharanyam Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji. These kirtans underline the importance of prayers and beautifully show us how we should pray.

Padma Purana says, “In the entire universe, the poor may still be considered rich, if he has devotion for Lord Hari in his heart. For such a devotee, the Lord abandons his abode to dwell in His devotee’s heart, bound as He is by the cord of the devotee’s love!”

In the song, “Agachcha Svayameva”,  set in Kamas raga, Sri Swamiji prays to the Lord to come and grace his heart with His presence. The beautiful lyrics and the meaning are presented here.
