Madras Cafe: Maula Sun Le Re


Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

The song starts with a request from an earnest seeker to the Divine for deliverance from a life of untruth. This person has understood that the world is nothing but an illusion and that what surrounds him is a lie and he now seeks the ultimate truth. He now feels as if in transition to another world and many questions puzzle him. All he sees around is darkness, deception and hypocrisy and in his heart he knows that he cannot take it anymore. He feels he has gathered enough courage to speak the un-speakable and take the mask off all the pretension. He asks for courage to act on what his heart asks and also seeks surrender in the spirit of St Francis' prayer: “Lord, grant me the strength to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”‚Äč



Lyrics:

Mera kaun hai, tere siva
Maula tu hi toh, hai bas mera
Nikla hoon, sach ki talaash mein
Yeh jag toh hai, maaya tera
Maula sun le re
Khudaya o mere
Maula sun le re
Mera mann jo kahe
Sun jab se, dil ki pukaar hai
Utha kaisa yeh, sawaal hai
Nahi ab khabar, na khayal hai
Hua kya yeh, mera haal hai
Maula sun le re
Khudaya o mere
Maula sun le re
Mera man jo kahe
Mera kaun hai, tere siva
Maula tu hi toh, hai bas mera
Nahi ab khabar, na khayal hai
Chadha kaisa yeh, khumaar hai
Lagta nahi, hogi sehar
Na jhuke agar, toh katenge sar
Yeh jo jhut pe, hai pale hue
Yeh jo doodh ke, hain dhule hue
Inhe kya khabar, nahi jaanate
Ke yeh lab mere, hain nahi sile
Mera kaun hai, tere siva
Maula tu hi toh hai bas mera
Nikla hoon sach ki talaash mein
Yeh jag toh hai maaya tera
Maula sun le re
Khudaya o mere
Maula sun le re
Mera man jo kahe
Maula sun le re
Khudaya o mere
Maula sun le re
Mera man jo kahe


Translation: 

Who do I have except you?
Oh lord, it is just you who’s mine
I am wandering in the search of truth
but this world created by you is nothing but an illusion
Listen to me o lord,
oh my holy lord..
Listen to me o my lord
Listen what my heart has to say
Since the time I have started listening to my heart
A unique question has surrounded me
I have no idea what has happened to me
Listen to me o lord,
oh my holy lord..
Listen to me o my lord
Listen what my heart has to say
Who do I have except you?
Oh lord, it is just you who’s mine
I have no idea,
what surrounds me and what I am experiencing
It doesn’t seem there will be a dawn soon,
and If I don’t bow down, I could be beheaded
These one’s who are living on the lies,
These one’s who a wearing mask of goodness
They don’t know yet,
that my lips are not sealed
Who do I have except you?
Oh lord, it is just you who’s mine
I am wandering in the search of truth
but this world created by you is an illusion
Listen to me o lord,
oh my holy lord..
Listen to me o my lord
Listen what my heart has to say
