Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram lyrics in English with translation

Updated: Apr 23

This is the original version:


Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram

Patita Pavana Sitaram (x2)

Praise King Ram, Lord of the Raghu dynasty

Praise Sita Ram, who purify even the sinners


Sundara vigraha meghashyam

ganga tulsi Shalagram

You are radiant and loving

You are worshiped in the form of Shaligram with ganga water and tulsi leaves


Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram

Patita Pavana Sitaram (x2)

Praise King Ram, Lord of the Raghu dynasty

Praise Sita Ram, who purify even the sinners


bhadragirishwara sitaram

bhaktajanapriya sitaram

The lord of Bhadra Girishwara

Dearest to the devotees


Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram

Patita Pavana Sitaram (x2)

Praise King Ram, Lord of the Raghu dynasty

Praise Sita Ram, who purify even the sinners


Janakiramana sitaram

Jayajaya raghava sitaram

The beloved of Janaki

Victory to you of the Raghu dynasty


Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram

Patita Pavana Sitaram (x2)

Praise King Ram, Lord of the Raghu dynasty

Praise Sita Ram, who purify even the sinners


You may not recognise the above version as Mahatma Gandhi changed the words to create the below popularised version:


Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram Patita Pavana Sitaram (x2)

Praise King Ram, Lord of the Raghu dynasty

Praise Sita Ram, who purify even the sinners


Sitaram, Sitaram, Bhaj Pyare Tu Sitaram

Lovingly recite Sitaram

Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram

Patita Pavana Sitaram (x2)


Ishwar Allah Tero Nam, Sabako Sanmati De Bhagawan

Also known as Ishwar (God) or Allah

May He give everyone nobel thoughts Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram Patita Pavana Sitaram (x2)


Mukhmen Tulsi, Ghatamen Ram, Jab Bolo Tab Sitaram

In your mouth is the Tulsi (holy plant) leaf, you body is filled with Ram's name

At every opportunity chant Sita Ram Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram Patita Pavana Sitaram (x2)


Hathose Karo Gharka Kam, Mukhase Bolo Sitaram

While doing household chores

Recite Sita Ram Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram Patita Pavana Sitaram (x2)


Kaushalyaka Vhala Ram, Dashrathjika Pyara Ram

Ram who is the darling of Mother Kaushalya

Ram the favourite of King Dasharath

Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram Patita Pavana Sitaram (x2)


Bansivala Hay Ghanshyam, Dhanushya Dhari Sitaram Ghanshyam (Krishna) who plays the flute

Lord Rama who carries a bow

Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram Patita Pavana Sitaram (x2)


Ratre nindra divase kam,

Kyare bhajaso Sitaram

At night we rest and work during the day

In between since Sitaram

Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram Patita Pavana Sitaram (x2)


I have attempted to translate the meaning of Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram in English for children so you will find it to be a simplified explanation and have included both the original version and the popularised version.









Sita Ram
