Mangal Bhavan, Amangal Hari: Translation of my favourite devotional song

This is the song that always soothes and relaxes me and I never get tired of playing it. It is devoted to Lord Rama and taken from Ram Charit Manas of Sant Tulsidas. The song is from the move “Geet Gata Chal” and sung by Jaspal Singh.

TRANSLATION:

Mangal Bhavan Amangal Haari
Drawahu Soo Dashrath Ajir Vihari

He who is the abode (bhavan) of all happiness and prosperity (mangal), and who removes or defeats (haari) all misery and unhappiness (amangal),
He who used to dwell (vihari) playfully (as a child) in Dashrath’s (Lord Rama’s father’s) frontyard (Ajir), please let your heart melt (Drawahu) for me (show mercy on me)

—————————————————————————————————————

Hoi Hai Wahi Jo Ram Rachi Raakhaa
Ko Kare Tarak Badhave Saaka

Only that happens (hoi hai wahi) which has been drafted (rachi) by Lord Ram
So why do you (ko kare) argue (tarak) needlessly and increase the commotion (saaka) in your life? ———————————————————————————————————————-
Dheeraj Dharam Mitr Aru Naari
Aapad Kaal Parakhiye Chaari

Patience (dheeraj), dharma (eternal faith), friend (Mitr) and wife (nari)
These four (chaari) are tested in crisis time (aapad kaal)

———————————————————————————————-
Jehike Jehi Par Satya Sanehu
So Tehi Milaye, Na Kachhu Sandehu

If you really love (snehu) someone (meaning Lord Ram) truly (satya)
You (tehi) will get (miliye) him ultimately, there is no (na kachu) doubt (sandehu) about it

———————————————————————————————–

Jaaki Rahi Bhavna Jaisi
Prabhu Moorti Dekhi Tin Taisi

Depending on the kind of feelings (bhavna) one nurtures for the divine
Lord Rama’s (prabhu) image (moorti) appears to him in that form

————————————————————————————————
Raghu Kul Reet Sada Chali Aayi
Praan Jaye Par Vachan Na Jaayi

It has been the eternal tradition (reet) of the lineage of Lord Ram (Raghu Kul)
To honor one’s word (vachan), even at the cost of one’s life (praan)

————————————————————————————————-

Hari Anant Hari Katha Ananta
Kahahi Sunahi Bahu Vidhi Sab Santa

Lord Rama (Hari) is infinite (Ananta), and so are the stories (Katha) about his glory
All learned seers (Santa) narrate (kahahi) these and listen (sunahi) to them in many different ways (bahu vidhi)

————————————————————————————————-

Note: “Sia” means Sita, Lord Rama’s wife. So when you say Sia Ram you are actually saying Sita Ram. Same with Siya-Pati Ram (Siya’s husband, Ram).
