Jaya Hey Bhaarata Bhaagya Vidhaataa

Victory to thee  (jaya hey) the country’s (Bhaarata) valuable father (Vidhaata) 

Jaya Hey, Jaya Hey, Jaya Hey,

Victory to thee (our nation), Victory to thee (our nation). victory to thee (our nation)

Jaya Jaya Jaya, Jaya Hey

Victory, victory, victory to thee (Victory to thee our nation)

I think, when you are signing the last part is said in a way that shows our victory lies in conquering the minds of people with our history, heritage, values and principals. We know India in all it’s history has only conquered people in one way. 

That believe it or not is India’s Destiny.

 

About Iksvakave

I am on a quest to understand my religion --- Hinduism. I have decided to keep a log of my discoveries, and experiences and what I have come to learn in the process. I like to travel through people vicariously. To observe the working of the mind, body and spirit. And heart. The soul infact is what our bodies have and what we are ultimately or in the end! The pricelessness of the soul is a soul is only potentially divine. Our journey here is therefore to understand that divinity in our lives. The ideals of societies, language, culture religion, and spirituality, is what interests me. what we know and don't know and outside of our four walls, maybe the priceless truth of that journey here on earth also, our yoga to be learned and equally perfected in life. What this blog is about is the values of the mother tongue India. And the values and culture of India and my nationality America. Pricelessness of it one will come to know you see. The forehead, is the center of the Hindu conscious.
