As One 

(by Denean)
As one we walk this Earth together
As one we sing to her our song
As one we love her
As one we  heal her
Her heart beats with our own as One

As one we join with her our Mother
As one we we feel her sacred song
As one we we touch her
As one we heal her
Her heart beats with our own as One.

Australian Dreaming 

(Words by Bill Neidjie from book ‘Story About Feeling’)

You listen my story and you feel Him
Because spirit he’ll be – with you
You cannot see but He’ll be with you, He’ll be with me          
This story – just listen – careful.

He knows, He listens to you.
You can hardly look but he listens to you.
(Alright), He come to you … you dream.
Your dream is real because your spirit is true.
And something He might drop into you.
He might give you something.

Might be piece of rock you might find I’m
because spirit is there.
Because spirit is there.

You must not lose,
leave your culture behind and story
You got to hang on and give it behind,
to your children.

Keep going
If you got story, heart
Then speak yourself, stand for it!

I love it too.
Is true… He can give you easy
because He ‘longside you with this story.
I’m telling you but – He ‘longside with you.

How you feel… wind, feeling cold, “oh lovely night.”
Yes… because He ‘longside with you.

You listen my story and you will feel Him
Because spirit he’ll be with you
You cannot see but He’ll be with you,

He’ll be with me          
This story, Just listen, Careful.

You might sleep. Well you feel..                
Hey, I bin dream a good dream.

Becoming

(L: Chandra Easton; M Arjuna Govinda)

Diamond Light, so bright
Pierces the veil
A caldron of Light.   
Diamond Light, so bright
Pierces the veil
Dark yields to Light.
Diamond light, so bright
Becoming, becoming
A cauldron of Light.

Golden Light,
overflowing
Becoming the Grail
Grail becoming,
becoming.
Golden Light surrounds all
Flowing, revealing
Christos so bright.

Golden Light, awakens
Eternal Homecoming
Within His HeartLight.
Rose of Remembrance
Enfolded in Love.
Rose of Remembrance
Is sweet Mother love.

Blessed Union

(Lyrics: Chandra Easton. Music : Arjuna Govinda)

I seek to walk the Way
The way of love and light.
I seek to know the Truth

The Truth beyond all words.
I seek to be at One
At one with all that is.

The God within,
The God without,
The God of All Creation.

The more I seek,
The less I know.
The less I know,
The more I Am.

And slowly, slowly, slowly
The Divine within awakens.
Awakens to perfection
To the beauty of all that is.

I stand transformed before you  
A vehicle for the Light
Translucent, radiant, loving
The face of all that’s bright.

God exists within my heart
My heart unites with yours.
Together we embrace the One
And slowly we Become.

Become One Heart, united, strong
A cell within the Heart of All
A voice within the Eternal Call
A rock within the Guardian Wall.

Crystal Mountain

(Lyrics: Chandra Easton. Music : Arjuna Govinda)

Lost am I in blizzards wild
The path unsure, my heart beguiled.
Beyond the snow, ‘neath shining peaks
A secret valley to me speaks.

All around the darkness looms,
Dawn is birthing from earth’s womb.
A crystal sentinel / it’s light to guide …
A refuge where the darkness cannot hide.

A portal to the world unseen,
Calls me through, beyond the dream.
Crystal mountain burning bright.
A beacon sure throughout the night.

All around the darkness looms,
Dawn is birthing from earth’s womb.
Beyond those snowy peaks, He stands
His heart aflame / through all the lands.

And thus we stand, and so remain
A cell within His heart’s domain.
While all around the darkness looms,
Dawn is birthing from earth’s womb.

Crystal mountain burning bright.
A beacon sure throughout the night.
Beneath those snowy peaks, He stands
His heart aflame through all the lands.

And slowly, slowly daylight comes     
His love pours forth

AUM, AUM, AUM, AUM.

Earth’s Child 

(lyrics: Chandra Easton. music:  Arjuna Govinda)  

Where Dark meets Light; where Life ensouls
There spirals turn and hearts enfold.
It’s there I await you, Son of the Sun.
It’s there I adore you – Mother Divine.

United, arisen, created anew
By Flame and Fire, hearts burn true.
It’s there I adore you, Son of the Sun.
It’s there I receive you – Mother Divine.

Chorus 
Beyond the beyond the beyond the beyond      
Dragon’s breath it spirals on, – ever on.
It’s there we are One in God’s holy sight
Father-Mother Divine; Son-Daughter of Light.

Galaxy Mother, milk flowing free
Her majesty, heartbeat, Her womb blessed be.
Child of His Heart, awaited, adored.
Child of His Heart, to earth – now restored.

Beyond the beyond the beyond the beyond
Dragon’s breath it spirals on, – ever on.
Child of His Heart, awaited, adored. 
Child of His Heart, to earth – now restored.

Extraterrestrial  Light

(Lyrics : Tarajyoti Govinda. Music : Arjuna Govinda)

You are our sisters and brothers
interplanetary beings of Light
we open to you – in all we do
we open – our hearts – to the Light

Let us begin to fly
on our love – from within
and help the Earth begin
to become a star that shines

Let Love – be the reason
and Light – guide the seasons
open – your heart – to the Light

Our extra terrestrial friends
with your help – all wars can end
we look for your peace –
guide our release
help Earth become a star.

Fly High 

(Peter Makena / Martyn Phillips)

Fly, fly high
let the Earth
touch the sky

Om
Shree   Rama
Jaya   Rama
Jaya   Jaya    Rama.

For Reasons All 

(L: Chandra Easton. Music: Arjuna Govinda)

As veils of doubt and reason fall,
You are revealed beyond the pall.
Child of the Sun, heart of my Heart,
Love of great Love,
for reasons all. 

And so we meet in sweet, sweet Love,
And so we meet unceasingly.
As Fire consumes, surrendered be,
Falling, falling, falling free. 

As I prostrate before God’s throne,
Into Love my breath seeks Home
Falling, falling, falling free.
There is no breath, save through Me. 

No scent divine, which passes over,
No sound unending as it soars,
No touch so tender passing nigh,
Save that which binds your heart to Mine. 

Love of great Love, Breath of my heart,
Song of my joy, my reasons all.
Love of great Love, Breath of my heart,
Song of my joy, my reasons all.

Her Red Heart 

(Lyrics: Chandra Easton. Music : Arjuna Govinda)

Returning, to Mother Dreamtime
Her Red Heart calling me.
Voices from an ancient time,
Echo timelessly. 

Returning, feet on sacred skin
Her heartbeat loud and clear.
The time has come; the time has come
Her Red Heart calls to me. 

Returning unto open arms
Red breast laid bare and free.
Ancient rivers, salted lakes.
Her Red Heart calling me. 

Returning unto salted veins
no tree or leaf abide.
Sun dapples over Her body bright
Her Red Heart calls to me. 

Returning , touching, blood red skin
soft tears upon Her land.
Clouds caress, as deserts glow
Her Red Heart calling me. 

Her Red Heart 

(Lyrics: Chandra Easton. Music : Arjuna Govinda)

Returning, to Mother Dreamtime
Her Red Heart calling me.
Voices from an ancient time,
Echo timelessly. 

Returning, feet on sacred skin
Her heartbeat loud and clear.
The time has come; the time has come
Her Red Heart calls to me. 

Returning unto open arms
Red breast laid bare and free.
Ancient rivers, salted lakes.
Her Red Heart calling me. 

Returning unto salted veins
no tree or leaf abide.
Sun dapples over Her body bright
Her Red Heart calls to me. 

Returning , touching, blood red skin
soft tears upon Her land.
Clouds caress, as deserts glow
Her Red Heart calling me. 

Returning, ’neath Australis, southern stars
our Cross rests heavenly.
Seven sisters calling, calling
Calling endlessly. 

I Have Searched for You

(Lyrics : Inger Marie Moller. Music : Arjuna Govinda)

I have searched for You
throughout my life
for comfort, for peace, for love and joy.               
I have looked for Your smile
in every face
for Your grace and compassion

in mothers eyes
in children’s laughter
in flowers bloom
In sunset colours
and rainbows light
In the snowcapped mountains
and rivers wild.

I have searched
for Your wisdom
in endless words
in the beauty of art
and musical tunes

I found You –  in a moment
when everything – was still
my mind – had stopped its searching
my heartbeat was at rest

and everything inside me    
was one with all of life
and there You were beside me
had never been apart.

In the Still of the Night 

(From the Amma ashram)

In the still of the night
From the darkness comes the Light
And I know in my heart it is you
And I know in my heart it is you

When the fire in my soul
Burns with longing for the goal
Then I know in my heart it is you
Then I know in my heart it is you

When the truth is revealed
All the sorrows will be healed
Then I know in my heart it is you
Then I know in my heart it is you

Jai Ma …  Jai Ma … Jai Ma … 

In the Vastness of Your Grace 

(Lyrics : Inger Marie Moller. Music: Arjuna Govinda)

Lady Yasodhara,
Oh peaceful Mother
Let my heart, unite with You
Lady Yasodhara.

In the vastness of Your grace
we are healed in Your embrace

In the silence of Your smile
I hear the song of Love and Joy.

Into The Fire

(Lyrics & Music: Arjuna Govinda)

Love has found us
Willing and – hopeful
Joyous …
Alive again.

My heart bursts open
In gratitude,  and wonder
This Love …
Awakens me to Joy.

Into the mysteries
Into the wonder
Into the love of life
Into the garden

My love you are
All that I hoped for
You take me in
Into your heart

Early on we chose
Not to contain this
But to allow it
To run its own course

I feel each of us on fire
Burning in the oneness
My heart calls me to be
All that I am

For this new life
For the wonder
For the Love …
that is Here for all

Into This Heart
Into This Fire
Into the Presence
Of Love Divine

My love you are
All that I hoped for
You take me in
Into your heart

Where each of us finds solace
and joy within the other
A sacred inspiration
Bringing us peace.

Love has found us
Willing and hopeful
Joyous
Alive again.

In this sanctuary
I find myself – with you
This garden so profound
Within our hearts

And so I surrender
And so I surrender
Into this love with you
Into the fire.

And I surrender
Into this love with you
Into the burning flame
Into the fire.

And so   –    I surrender.

Let Liberty

(Lyrics : Chandra Easton. Music : Arjuna Govinda)

Sitting with aloneness, aloneness sits with me.
Within aloneness stillness sits in quiet reverie. 

From deep within, the Silence calls: Arise, arise oh Liberty!
Deep within, the Silence sounds: Arise, arise let Liberty! 

Heartbeat holding heartache waits patiently, patiently for me.
Heart beyond all fear, calling ever to be free. 

From deep within, the Silence calls: Arise, arise oh Liberty!
Deep within, the Silence sounds: Arise let Liberty! 

Love welcomed, fear released, She nests once more with thee.
Freed I AM, now full of Love of Life and Liberty. 

Love abounds and Love resounds, oh joyful Liberty.
Love abounds, life resounds with joyful Liberty.

Let Love

(lyrics: Chandra –  Music: Arjuna )

Let love overtake you.
Let love overwhelm you.
Let love ever guide you.
Let love, love, love.

For all times, eternal.
For all ways, forever.
For all paths united
In love, love, love.

May My Heart be within you.
May My Spirit flow through you.
May My Face guide you onwards
With love, blessed, love.

Let love overtake you.
Let love overwhelm you.
Let love ever guide you.
Become love.

May My Heart beat with your heart,
May our heart’s blood run freely.
May all hearts join the One Heart.
In love, blessed love.

Together, forever.
Forgiven, all forgiven.
May My peace be with you
Eternally love.

Let love overtake you.
Let love overwhelm you.
Let love ever guide you.
Become love.


Let Us Sing the Song of Life

(lyrics: Inger Marie Moller; music Arjuna Govinda)

Into the blue, blue endless sky
my joy of freedom wants to fly.

Within the deep green boundless sea
my heart of Love just wants to be.
So let us sing the Song of Life
of Peace and Grace and Sacrifice.

Upon the rainbows sparkling light
Let our Souls and Hearts unite.

For we are children born to know
that Life is here on Earth to grow.

Let us give to Mother Earth        
the pledge that Peace we will give Birth.

And let us sing to Her our praise
for all Her Beauty, Life and Grace

And let us sing the Song of Life
of Peace and Grace and Sacrifice.

This heart, this Light; One Heart, One Light.
Returned again to Thee.

This land, I bless for thee.

From deepest space, through holy grace,
Returned to the Great I Am.
This land, this heart of sacred Fire,
This land, I bless for thee.

This Earth I bless for thee.
This heart, this light; One Heart, One Light,
Returned, redeemed to Thee.

This land, I bless for Thee.

Peace of Iona  

(by Mike Scott)

Peace of the glancing, dancing waves,
Peace of the white sands,
Peace of Iona.
Peace of the singing wind,
Peace of the stones,
Peace of Iona.

Peace of the crying gulls
Peace of the humming bees
Peace of the noontime stillness.
Peace of the dreaming hills
Peace of the breath of angels
Peace of Iona

Peace of the saints and seekers
Peace of the monks and druids
Peace of the resting place of kings,
Peace of the ruins,
Peace of doves in the bell-tower,
Peace of Iona.

Peace of the rested mind,
Peace of the glad heart,
Peace of my lover’s pots and potions
Peace of her healing hands,
Peace of her lazy laughter,
Peace of Iona.

Peace of the unseen,
Peace of the spirit,
Peace of Iona.
Peace of the unseen,
Peace of the spirit,
Peace of Iona.

Return to Eire

(Lyrics: Chandra Easton. Music : Arjuna Govinda)

Surrounded by the water
A jewel amidst the waves.
Surrounded by the water
I call My children Home.

From stone to tree,
From hill to glen.
Surrounded by the water
I call My children Home.

I Am Eriu, the Heart of Eire
I call my children Home.
I Am Eriu, the Heart of Eire
I call My children Home.

From these shores,
these mountains
I sing My song of love.
I Am the Harp, the Harp Eriu
I sing My children Home.

Surrounded by the water
A jewel amidst the waves.
Surrounded by the water
I call My children Home.

From the cradle to the grave
I sing My children Home.
I AM the Harp, the Harp Eriu
I sing my children Home.

I sing my children Home.

Surrender

(lyrics & music: by Tarajyoti Govinda)

There is a sky that goes beyond,
the horizon that we see.
It is a place that lives within,
the heart of eternity.

There is a sky that goes beyond,
the horizon that we see.
Limits cease to exist in this reality,
allowing spirit to be free.    

There is a choice we must make,
so little time,
the way we choose to walk,
to follow the Divine.

There is a choice we must make so little time,
Open our hearts, align our minds.           
Surrender to the love of the Divine.

We surrender to the Love of the Divine.
We surrender to the Love.
We surrender to the Love of the Divine.
With the Divine our heart and mind entwine.

The Call

(Lyrics: Chandra Easton. Music : Arjuna Govinda)

Hold the Light aloft, the candle high
That Love returns to Earth, from sky.

Hold the Light aloft, the candle bright
That peace descends, through darkened night.

Hold the Light on high, and glory be
That joy unending, comes to thee.

And Light returns and Love abides  –    
And Hope flows steady from all sides
And Love descends on torrents strong
And Christed Light pours forth her song

And Earth resounds with Love’s strong call
Hearts wide heads bowed receive us all.

She comes, She comes, She comes again
Again, again again, for all
She comes again
She heeds the call.

When the Sun King Comes

(lyrics: Chandra Easton. Music : Arjuna Govinda)

And the first shall be last and the last shall be first
The first shall be last, when She answers the call.
And the first shall be last and the last shall be first
The first shall be last, when the Sun King comes.

In hallowed halls beyond the veil
There time stands still and fires blaze.
When every heart pours forth the call
And She who will be Queen awaits the Sun.

And the first shall be last and the last shall be first
The first shall be last, when She answers the call.
And the first shall be last and the last shall be first
The first shall be last, when the Sun King comes.

When daylight comes the veil rends free,
When war gives way and peace heals thee.
When hatred ebbs and love abides
Then the Queen of Earth, She births the Sun.

And light reveals, when time stands still
That hallowed halls shall emptied be.
All bells ring loud, as earth resounds
With love, only love when She births the Son.

When earth is renewed and peace abides
When love reigns holy from all sides.
Then from hallowed halls, He comes, He comes.
From darkened night to bright sunlight
All is revealed when She births the Son.

And the first shall be last and the last shall be first
The first shall be last, when She answers the call.
And the first shall be last and the last shall be first
The first shall be last, when the Sun King comes.

When earth is renewed and peace abides
When love reigns holy from all sides.
Then from hallowed halls, He comes, He comes.
From darkened night to bright sunlight
All is revealed when She births the Son.

And bells ring loud, as earth resounds
With love only love, when the Sun King comes.
All bells ring loud, as earth resounds
With love only love, when the Sun King comes.

And the first shall be last and the last shall be first
The first shall be last, when She answers the call.
And the first shall be last and the last shall be first
The first shall be last, when the Sun King comes.
