Received Songs

Aside from the mantras and rituals that have been passed down throughout the centuries through the Sanatana Dharma, there are certain songs (or hymns) that have been received by Prem Baba and other channels during moments of divine inspiration. Most of these are in Portuguese, so it may be helpful to understand not only the general meaning of the songs, but also to know the specific translation and pronunciation of each word.

Here you can study the ones that Prem Baba sings most often during satsangs.

Hummingbird (Sri Prem Baba)

Listen to “Hummingbird” being sung in the original Portuguese and with its English translation


CORAÇÃO QUE VAI SE ABRINDO
EM MIL PÉTALAS DE FLOR
EU TE SINTO, EU TE RECEBO BEIJA-FLOR
NAS ASAS DESTA PUREZA
TEM UM BRILHO ENCANTADOR
PODE VER AQUELE QUE JÁ SE ENTREGOU
VEM SURGINDO UM AMIGO
NO MOMENTO ESCOLHIDO
PELO MESTRE QUE RETIRA O TEMOR
UM PRESENTE TÃO DIVINO
FRUTO DE PURO CARINHO
QUE REVELA OS TESOUROS DO AMOR

HEART THAT IS OPENING
IN A THOUSAND FLOWER PETALS
I FEEL YOU, I RECEIVE YOU, HUMMINGBIRD
ON THE WINGS OF SUCH PURITY
THERE IS AN ENCHANTING SHINE
THE ONE WHO HAS SURRENDERED CAN SEE
A FRIEND SHOWS UP
AT THE MOMENT CHOSEN
BY THE MASTER WHO REMOVES ALL FEAR
SUCH A DIVINE GIFT
FRUIT OF PURE TENDERNESS
WHICH REVEALS THE TREASURES OF LOVE

Tender Flowers (Sri Prem Baba)

Listen to “Tender Flowers” being sung in the original Portuguese

 

 

NESTE JARDIM DE TÃO MIMOSAS FLORES
É DA ONDE VEM TODOS OS PRIMORES

IN THIS GARDEN OF SUCH TENDER FLOWERS
IS WHERE ALL BEAUTY COMES FROM

CORRE A ÁGUA DA VIDA E NASCE A FLOR DE AMOR
QUE FAZ VOAR O MEU LINDO BEIJA-FLOR

THE WATER OF LIFE RUNS AND THE FLOWER OF
__________                                 LOVE IS BORN

MAKING MY BEAUTIFUL HUMMINGBIRD TAKE FLIGHT

SE TU PEDES VIDA, VIDA EU TE DOU
MAS VENHA AQUI, AQUI AONDE ESTOU

IF YOU ASK FOR LIFE, I GIVE YOU LIFE
BUT COME HERE, HERE WHERE I AM

APRENDA A VOAR COMO MEU BEIJA-FLOR
NESTE JARDIM O JARDIM DO AMOR

LEARN TO FLY LIKE MY HUMMINGBIRD
IN THIS GARDEN THE GARDEN OF LOVE

QUE ALEGRIA EU SINTO NO MEU PEITO
DE ESTAR AQUI CANTANDO O TEU AMOR

SUCH JOY I FEEL IN MY HEART
TO BE HERE SINGING YOUR LOVE

MEU MESTRE É REI DA LUZ E DO AMOR
ME ENSINA A LIBERDADE SE SER O QUE EU SOU

MY MASTER IS KING OF LIGHT AND OF LOVE
HE TEACHES ME THE FREEDOM TO BE WHAT I AM
