Yeshu Muktinath | Track 08

22. January 2011

The recording of Amrit Vani at the end of 2007 was a 3 month triathlon that really took a lot out of us. 2008 was filled with touring and not much thought towards composing or recording. When we wrote Yeshu Muktinath in the spring of ’09, it was a relief to see that there was something left in the creative tank and even better that it felt like one of our best songs ever. It re-invigorated us and was a kick start for more writing and then… we all decided that we should take a step back from active touring and writing. Pete and Fiona went to India for 2009 but ended up in England for the birth of their surprise twin girls, and Chris and Miranda forged ahead renovating their house in Toronto into a live-in work of art. So the creative brakes were applied just after the light showed green. The few tours we did in 09 featured Yeshu Muktinath as much for its newness as that it represented to us the hopeful future of Aradhna.

We see Namaste Sate as the zenith of our recording efforts, perhaps of the life of Aradhna in general, and if it had not been for the writing of Yeshu Muktinath in early 2009, we might never had made it through all the changes that God brought our way in the last 2 years. It was just enough to help us see that the best days were still ahead. Enjoy a little Aradhna Rock n Roll.

Yeshu Muktinath
Pounded and crushed, is the soul of humanity
Pain and suffering, known by the Lord of the Universe
The longing of the world is satisfied in Him
Like an eternal spring it gurgles on and on

Yeshu, Lord of Salvation, for the world a gift
Victory to God, Victory to God, the name of Narahari, the man-God

His country? It is in your heart alone
Clothing? You may forever change it
But He clothes himself with your heart

Yeshu, Lord of Salvation, for the world a gift
Victory to God, Victory to God, the name of Narahari, the man-God

One drop at a time, the ocean of love is filled
Love’s language, residing in the heart alone.

Yeshu, Lord of Salvation, for the world a gift
Yeshu, Lord of Salvation, the final rest for the suffering
Yeshu, Lord of Salvation, the Strength of the weak
Victory to God, Victory to God the name of Narahari, the man-God
