Devotees Sing Krishna Prayer Songs for Help
Hello, I am Pandit Vinod Dave for About.com. I am here to explain what is happening in this prayer song for Krishna: Kanha Re O Kanha. This bhajan is addressed to Krishna. In distress devotees can call on Krishna for help and he will definitely answer. This song exemplifies that.
Learn the Meaning Behind the Krishna Prayer Song
In the beginning the devotees describe a boat in the vast ocean of the world. They are asking help from Krishna to escape the darkness of the night and be guided into the light of the day. Later in the song, it tells the story of Queen Dhraupadi who was lost in a gambling bet by her husband the King to Prince Duryodhan. The Queen prays to Krishna to save her from the Prince who is trying to disrobe her and Krishna gives her an unlimited supply of saris. At the end of the song, the artist sings that their life is also filled with a loss and they need the help of Krishna too.
So please listen to the song and receive the help of Krishna. For more information on Hinduism please visit About.com
