Ithni Shakthi Hamen Dena Dhatha
(Give us this much power , oh Lord who gives)
(This remarkable very meaningful song in Hindi film Aankush has become extremely popular as a Bhajan throughout Hindi speaking Areas. The prayer would definitely bring tears in the eyes of any devotee .It is interesting to note that nowhere , the name of any God is mentioned.)
1.Ithni shakthi hamen dena dhatha, Man kaa viswas kamjor ho na,
Hum chale nek rasthe pe, hamse bhoolkar bhi koi bhool ho na,
Har tharaf zulum bebasi hai , sahama , sahama sa har aadhmi hai,
Paap ka bhoj badathi hi jaye, jana kaise ye dharthi thami hai,
Bhoj mamata ka thu, thu ye utha le , their rachana ka ye anth ho na.
1.Give us this much power to us , Oh lord who gives , so that the faith in our mind does not get weakened.
We are travelling in the path of honesty and let not we do a single mistake even by mistake,
In all directions crime and helplessness are growing and every person tolerates it ,
The burden of sin keeps on increasing and I know not how the earth is able to bear it ,
You please lift away the burden of the ego from us and never ever stop your creativity.
2.Dhoor ajnan ke ho Andhere,, thu hamen jnan ki Roshni dhe ,
Har bhrayi se bachke rahe hum , jithni bhi dhe bhali jindaki dhe ,
Bair ho na kisi ka, kisi se bhavana man me badle ki ho na
2.Drive away the darkness of ignorance far away and you please give us the light of wisdom,
We have been keeping away from every evil and whatever life you give , give us only life of honesty,
Let there not there be enmity with any one, let not thought to avenge any one be there in our mind.
3.Hum naa soche hamen kyaa mila hai , hum yah soche, kiya kya hai ,
Arpan phool khusiyon ke bhante sabi ko , sab ka jeevan hi ban jaaye madhu van,
Apni karuna kaa jal thu baha ke, kar dhe pavan har man ka kona.
3,Let us not think “what have we got?” but let us think “What have we done?”
If we distribute the flower of joy to every one, the life of every one would become a garden of honey,
Please let flow the water of your mercy and purify every corner of our mind.
4.Hum Andhere mein hai , roshni dhe,
Kho na dhe khud ko dushmani se, hum saza paye apne khiye ki,
Maut bi ho to sah le kushi se,
Kal jo gujara hai phirse na gujare ,
AAne vaala vo kal aisa ho no,
4.We are in darkness , give us light,
Do not get lost yourself in enmity as we would be punished for our act ,
Even if it is death, tolerate it with joy,
Let whatever happened yesterday not happen again,
And let the tomorrow which is coming be not like that.
