Bhaj re madhur madhur naam

Posted on: November 24, 2011


“Narsinh Avtaar” (1949) was a Minerva Movietone presentation. It was directed by Sohrab Modi. The movie had names like Mahipal, Laxman, Hari Shivdasani, Tiwari, Niranjan Sharma, Shobhana Samarth, Madan Mohan, Kamal etc in it.

I have discussed two songs from this movie in the past. Here is another song from the movie. This song is a bhajan. It is sung by Manna Dey, Lata and chorus. Pt Narendra Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vasant Desai.

I have noticed that quite a few sources erroneously name Rafi as the male playback singer of this song and count this song as among the 400 plus Rafi Lata duet songs. Nothing can be further from the truth because the male playback voice is very clearly Manna Dey’s.

This song is a rare song. I have managed to note down most words of the song but I have been unable to get the words right at a couple of lines. I request readers with keener ears to point out the correct words.


Song-Bhaj re madhur madhur naam (Narsinh Avtaar) (1949) Singers-Manna Dey, Lata, Lyrics-Pt Narendra Sharma, MD-Vasant Desai
Chorus=Fuchsia

Lyrics

Bhaj re madhur madhur naam
param dhaam ka
mukund mukti dhaam ka
madhur madhur naam
bhaj re madhur madhur naam
bhaj re madhur madhur naam
bhaj re madhur madhur naam

param dhaam ka
aaa
param dhaam ka
mukund mukti daam ka
madhur madhur naam
bhaj re madhur madhur naam

bhaj re madhur madhur naam
bhaj re madhur madhur naam

hriday bane ksheer sindhu
hriday bane ksheer sindhu
lehar lehar gaaye geet
lehar lehar gaaye geet
prabhu ke charan kamal taley
prabhu ke charan kamal taley
sheesh nit jhukaaye preet
dhyaan tu dhare hamesh
nit shyaam ka
bhaj re madhur madhur naam

bhaj re madhur madhur naam
bhaj re madhur madhur naam

deen bandhu deenanath
deen bandhu deenanath
jagat ke pitaa
aa aa
jagat ke pitaa
deen dhyaan karo sadaa
bhakt par kripa
main banoon chakor
?? punya ??
?? punya ??
madhur madhur naam

bhaj re madhur madhur naam
bhaj re madhur madhur naam

What a beautiful bhajan. I heard it for the first time. Thanks Atulji. I could listen the second word – ?? punya param naam ka. Hope it is right.

Atul ji,

Wonderful discovery, such a lovely bhajan, I too am hearing it for the first time.

One correction, the line
“deen dhyaan karo sadaa”
should read
“deen jaan karo sadaa”

Regarding the line
“?? punya ??”
the best I am able to decipher based on the sounds is
“chandra punya-maam kaa”.
