Achyutam Keshavam bhajan lyrics with English translation

Updated: Sep 14, 2023

Achyutam Keshavam Krishna Damodaram Ram Naraynam Janaki Vallabham These are all the various names of BhagwanVishnu


Kaun Kehte Hai Bhagwan Aate Nahi

Hum Meera Ke Jaise Bulate Nahi

Achyutam Keshavam …

Who says that God (Bhagwan) isn't near us?

We don't call Him like Meera (Mirabais love and devotion are well known and Lord Krishna always visits the devotee when they call Him so lovingly and with such purity)


Kaun Kehte Hai Bhagwan Khate Nahi Ber Shabri Ke Jaise Khilate Nahi

Achyutam Keshavam …

Who says that God (Bhagwan) doesn't eat what we offer as prashad? We don't offer prashad like Shabri did (Shabri lived in the forest and would collect the best berries everyday in the hope that one day Lord Rama would visit)


Kaun Kehte Hai Bhagwan Sote Nahi Maa Yashodha Ke Jaise Sulate Nahi Achyutam Keshavam …

Who says that God does not sleep?

Is it because we don't rock him to sleep like Mother Yashoda


Kaun Kehte Hai Bhagwan Nachte Nahi Gopiyo ki Tarah hum Nachate Nahi Achyutam Keshavam …

Who says that God doesn't dance with joy?

We don't call him to dance like the loving Gopis

(Next bit is optional)

Naam Japate Chalo Kaam Karte Chalo Har Samay Krishna Ka Dhyaan Karte Chalo

While walking and working, at every moment keep chanting the Lord's name


Achyutam Keshavam Krishna Damodaram, Ram Naraynam Janaki Vallabham,

Yaad Aayegi Unko Kabhi Na Kabhi Krishan Darshan To Denge Kabhi Na Kabhi

He will come and visit and give us His Darshan


Achyutam Keshavam Krishna Damodaram Ram Naraynam Janaki Vallabham


You can end it by going into this dhoon

Krishna Nam Japo, Krishna Nam Japo

Krishna Nam Japo, Krishna Nam Japo (higher)

(oh) Krishna Nam, Radha Shyam Japo x2


Radhe Shyam Japo, Radhe Shyam Japo,

Radhe Shyam Japo, Radhe Shyam Japo,

(oh) Radhe Shyam Japo, Hari Nam Japo x2


Hari Nam Japo, Hari Nam Japo

Hari Nam Japo, Hari Nam Japo (higher)

(oh) Hari Nam Japo, Hari Nam Japo x 2


Japo in the above means to chant, essentially keep reciting the various names of the Lord.


This is a really beautiful catchy Krishna bhajan that has become very popular over the past 7 years or so. Originally sung by Vikram Hazra it has a beautiful meaning and can enlighten children to the various stories about Lord Krishna. It is especially popular at Janmastami events :)
