"Mother's Blessing" - "La bendición de tu madre". Spanish / English song. Snatam Kaur


Dedicated to Saskia, Carolina, Ruth and their beautiful families and to all the yoginis-mothers:

http://www.spiritvoyage.com/blog/index.php/snatam-kaurs-spanish-offering-mothers-blessing-la-bendicion-de-tu-madre/

Karan: What inspired you to record this particular track?

Snatam: During my pregnancy, I was reciting the words to this shabd 11 times per day to pray for the baby in my womb, and I was really inspired to hear it with other mothers. I wanted to share the experience I had with this shabd. While I was pregnant, every day people would ask me things like if I had gotten a stroller yet, or a crib, or if my nursery was set up yet. People were always asking me if I had gotten all of the physical things I needed. But I’m just not a planner or a “things” person – I don’t really relate to “stuff”. To me, the most important thing was that I connected with my child energetically, so I was reciting the shabd in English and Gurmukhi and started getting deeper into the meaning of it, and it really inspired me. It says “May your clothing be the protection of God and your food be the singing of God’s praise .” It really helped me prioritize and relax about the material things, and I really felt like the right thing to do was to pray for the soul of the baby coming in. As a mom, I realized that would be my most important job. After reciting just the words for a while, I sat down one day and came up with the tune we used in this piece and I knew I wanted to record it.

Karan: Why did you decide to translate it into Spanish?

Snatam: I had been really wanting to sing something in Spanish for a while, and the tune I wrote for this piece inspired me to find out the Spanish lyrics. My friend translated it in such a beautiful way, and the words ended up fitting so beautifully with the tune, I knew it was meant to be. Over the years, I have received so much love, so many e-mails and letters from Spanish speakers and I wanted to give a gift to them and that’s how it all came about.


So, here are the words from the shabd in both English and Spanish:

Track 4: Mother’s Blessing – La Bendición De Tu Madre
Words of Bibi Bani, wife of Guru Ram Das the Fourth Guru of the Sikhs

Retoño mio, esta es la bendición de tu madre.
Oh my child this is your mother’s blessing.

Nunca olvides a Dios, ni un momento
May you never forget God, even for a moment

Adorando, por siempre, al Señor del Universo
Worshipping forever the Lord of the universe.

Recordando a Dios, todos los errores son purificados.
Remembering God, all mistakes are washed away.

Y todos nuestros ancestros son acogidos y salvados.
And one’s ancestors are redeemed and saved.

Siempre canta el nombre de Dios, Har Har
Always chant God’s Name, Har Har

Dios esta en tu interior, Dios es infinito.
God is inside you, God is Infinite.

Que el Verdadero Guru te sea amable
May the True Guru be kind to you

Que ames estar en compañía de santos.
May you love to be with the Saints.

Que tu prenda de vestir sea la protección de Dios
May your clothing be the protection of God

Que tu sustento sea el canto de la alabanza de Dios.
May your food be the singing of God’s Praise.

Bebe el néctar del nombre de Dios, y vive una larga vida
Drink the nectar of God’s Name and live long

Que la meditación en Dios te traiga dicha incesante
May meditation on God bring you endless bliss.

Que el amor sea tuyo propio y tus deseos se cumplan
May love be yours and your hopes fulfilled

Que la preocupación nunca te consuma.
May you never be worn by worry.

Haz de tu mente el abejorro
Let this mind of yours be the bumble bee

Y que los pies de loto de Dios sean la flor.
And let the Lotus Feet of God be the flower.

Oh sirviente Nanak, ata tu mente de esta manera
Oh Servant Nanak, link your mind in this way

Como el gavilán encuentra la gota de lluvia, y prospera.
Like the sparrow hawk finding a raindrop, blossom forth.

The colour of hope (Color Esperanza, English lyrics), it’s better to get lost than never having boarded. Do Yoga, Be happy



Spanish   /   English

Color Esperanza  /   The colour of hope

Se que hay en tus ojos con solo mirar
que estas cansado de andar y de andar
y caminar, girando siempre en un lugar

I know what’s in your eyes with just looking at you
(I know) you’re tired of walking and walking
and walking, always in circles in the same place
Se que las ventanas se pueden abrir
cambiar el aire depende de ti
te ayudará, vale la pena una vez mas

I know that windows can be opened
to change the atmosphere depends on you
it’ll help you, it’s worth it once more
Saber que se puede, querer que se pueda
Quitarse los miedos, sacarlos afuera
pintarse la cara color esperanza
tentar al futuro con el corazón

To know it’s possible, to want it to happen
to get rid of our fears, to expel them
to paint our faces with the colour of hope
to tempt the future with our hearts
Es mejor perderse que nunca embarcar
mejor tentarse a dejar de intentar
aunque ya ves que no es tan facil empezar
Se que lo imposible se puede lograr
que la tristeza algun día se irá
y asi será, la vida cambia y cambiará

It’s better to get lost than never having boarded
better to fall in temptation than giving up trying
even though you see it’s not that easy to start
I know that impossible can be achieved
that sadness will go one day
and it’ll be like that, life will change and change
Sentirás que el alma vuela
por cantar una vez mas

You’ll feel your soul flying
for singing one more time
Saber que se puede querer que se pueda
quitarse los miedos, sacarlos afuera
pintarse la cara color esperanza
tentar al futuro con el corazón

To know it’s possible, to want it to happen
to get rid of our fears, to expel them
to paint our faces with the colour of hope
to tempt the future with our hearts
Saber que se puede querer que se pueda
quitarse los miedos, sacarlos afuera
pintarse la cara color esperanza
tentar al futuro con el corazón

To know it’s possible, to want it to happen
to get rid of our fears, to expel them
to paint our faces with the colour of hope
to tempt the future with our hearts
Vale más poder brillar
que solo buscar ver el sol
It’s better being able to shine
than just trying to look at the sun

Pintarse la cara color esperanza
tentar al futuro con el corazón

To paint our faces with the colour of hope
to tempt the future with our hearts
Saber que se puede...
Querer que se pueda...
Pintarse la cara color esperanza
tentar al futuro con el corazón

To know it’s possible
to want it to happen
to paint our faces with the colour of hope
to tempt the future with our hearts

3 tips how to reduce muscle soreness after Yoga


Hi there,

Last Monday we had another yoga class and this was a powerful and dynamic experience, with lots of different postures to get strong and flexible in body and mind.

You may experience you have used your muscles like you haven´t before ;)

3 tips how to reduce muscle soreness after Yoga:

- 5 minutes morning stretch: stretching the legs, side bodies and arms. Circle neck and shoulders. Do this just before taking a shower when you are brushing your teeth.

- Drink 2 liters of water throughout the whole day. Try water with squeezed lemon or with mint leaves. Or even coconut water will do.

- Keep moving. Walk as much a possible or take a dive into the sea after work. Circulation is the body´s mechanism for transporting healing factors to the parts that need it most.

Finally, know that a little soreness is GOOD! It often means you’ve used a muscle in a way it hasn’t been engaged in a while, or that you’ve played at the edge of your capacity.

See you Wednesday or Monday at 20:15 hours at Calle de Moreno Monroy 5 3rd floor, Malaga centre!

New students are more than welcome to join the class!
