BHAJAN: VAISHNAVA JANA TO
Vaishnava jana to
Call only that one a true Vaishnava, who understands others’ pain,
who helps them in their suffering,
but has no arrogance in his heart. The one
who bows to everyone in the world,
and speaks ill of none,
who is unwavering in speech, action, and thought, truly blessed is his mother!
who sees everyone as equal, and has given up desires,
who views another’s wife as mother, whose tongue does not lie,
who does not touch another’s wealth, who is not bound by illusory attachments,
whose detachment is firm,
and whose heart is immersed in Ram’s name. all places of pilgrimage are within his body.
who is without greed or deceit,
who has subdued anger and lust, on seeing that one, says Narasainyo:
seventy-one generations are saved.
(translation Neelima Shukla-Bhatt)
