Govind Hari Gopal Hari was the desire of Jiva Goswami dasa to sing from his heart for his love for Govind the ever-mystical Supreme Lord known as Krishna. He asked Shashika Mooruth aka Sacidevi dasi to accompany him in this album as he was completely untrained a singer but had the deep desire to sing and make an album expressing his love for Krishna. Jiva Goswami dasa left this world from an illness that he was born with but his memories remain in this album that has sold more than 10 000 copies in the beautiful land of Vrndavan [near New Delhi], the sweet abode of Lord Krishna.
It was also his intense desire to ensure that his music travel around the world. Shashika Mooruth has therefore taken it as a personal endeavor to fulfill his desire and make the album reach to as many listeners as possible. Jiva Goswami dasa worked selflessly to bring spirituality to the younger generation as he felt that with the modern influence they will forget God. Hence he endeavored to make music that they will be attracted to.
Three mahamantra tunes of chanting the Holy Name Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare will surely keep you grooving. Natwar Nagar Nanda is written by the famed devotee Mirabai and many have fallen in love with this track and its haunting music and soulful voice of Shashika Mooruth.
Madhurastakam and Nandanandanastakam are also traditional lyrics describing the form of the beautiful Krishna.
The last track Prayers to Nrsingadeva is also a dedication to the fiery form of Krishna, Shri Nrsingadeva as half-man half-lion.
Govind Hari Gopal Hari is certainly an album to take you ahead in this life of stress and turmoil.
