He Govinda He Gopala chanted by Satyadevi and Janin Devi


Satyadevi and Janin Devi sing during a Saturday evening satsang at Yoga Vidya Bad Meinberg, Germany, the mantra He Govinda He Gopala, which you can find in Yoga Vidya Kirtan Songbook under number 158:

Hey Hey Govinda,
Hey Hey Gopala
He Vasudeva He Nityananda
Shri Radhe Radhe Radhe
Radhe Radhe Radhe-Syama

“Hey Govinda Hey Gopala” is a Krishna Kirtan, expresses the closeness to Krishna. “He” is similar to the simply “Hey” or “Oh”, “Oh Govinda”, “Oh Gopala”. This is a call: “May God come, we may know God.” And God is invoked as Govinda, as the Good Shepherd, as Gopala, who takes care of all creatures. He is Vasudeva, light of all creatures. He is Nityananda, eternal bliss of all beings. He is Shri Radha, so he is the one who is always together with Radha. Radha means love and joy. He is Shyama, dark and mysterious. – Have fun listening and singing along this kirtan.
