The Brahma Samhita is the oldest prayer in the universe, having been spontaneusly composed and sung by Lord Brahma, the first-born within this universe, as His loving offering to Lord Krishna (Govinda) when Brahma first had His darshan (audience) ! It was lost to antiquity, forgotten to mankind.. until Lord Caitanya kindly revealed it to the world when He visited the Adi Keshava (Divya Desham) temple in Travancore, Kerala, South India. Within the sanctum sanctorum was a wooden box, in which the Lord discovered two masterpieces - the Sri Krishna Karṇāmṛta and this, Brahma Saṁhita. This great incident happened during Lord Caitanya's 6-year-long all-India preaching tour (approx. 1510-1516 A.D.) The text of the Brahma Samhita in simplified format is available at www.bsamhita.on.to and www.bsamhita2.on.to The second and fourth verses of this prayer have been immortalized in George Harrison's lovely composition 'Govindam', which Srila Prabhupada instructed his followers 'must be played every day in all Hare Krishna temples' during the morning worship called 'Deity Greeting' (darśan ārati or śṛṅgāra āratī).

The above recording was made (Dina singing, Tulasi Das on mṛdaṅga) during the grand inauguration festival for Lord Nṛsiṁhadev's new temple in Iskcon Maṇipur.

Dear devotees,

Śrīla Prabhupāda and his Guru Mahārāja, Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Goswāmī Prabhupāda, had both made the request to their followers to 'make it a regular daily function' to recite the Brahma Saṁhita.  But the sanskṛt verses contained in it seem too difficult....  14 syllables on each long line!  However singing it with this simple tune which matches the meter makes it easy for anyone to do this.  If you like to download an MP3 version of this song, you can do so from my www.mangalarati.welcome.to page.  Happy singing!  Hare Kṛṣṇa!  your servant, dīna
