Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram lyrics in English with translation

Updated: Nov 1, 2021

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)


With Diwali fast approaching I wanted to share one of the first Ram bhajans that I was taught as a child. It was popularised by Mahatma Gandhi and sings the praises of Lord Rama. I have translated the meaning of Raghupati Raghava in English for children so you will find it to be a simplified explanation.
