Pure Love of Radharani

Madhura Geetam – Prayer Series: 5
O Krishna, Even if my Love for you is only Pretense, Please make it True
In 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.
In a beautiful song, Sri Swamiji shows us how to pray for true love for the Lord. He cries to Him to transform his false and superficial love into real and pure love, as he lacks the capacity to do so himself. The song (in Tamil) is set in Ahiri raga – a raga typically used for pleading and lamenting. The lyrics and translation are also given here.
