Dohas are spontaneous songs of spiritual experience, celebration, and prayer. They often contain spiritual teachings. The dohas of teachers are sometimes sung by students as part of their sadhana. Dohas have existed since ancient times in traditions from both India and Tibet.

Dohas are intimate self-expressions at the same time that they speak about the essence of existence and waking up. ~Shambhavi Sarasvati

Amrita Drops is inspired in part by the Trika teaching that our senses are God playing in and enjoying the wild diversity of manifest life.

Amrita Drops is intended to serve as a medicine for self-denigration and attachment to how one appears. The “I” is everyone and every one of you.


Amrita drops lyrics

I am the golden heartdrop
of God’s desire.

I am the sweet taste melting
on God’s tongue.

I am the endless song
dancing in God’s ear.

I am the touch of
loving kindness on God’s skin.

I am the blazing view
of the eye beyond the moon.

I am the sandalwood scenting
God’s air.

I am the jasmine bow
that strikes God’s heart.

I am the journey to
God’s abode.

I reflect the nature
of the Self.

I am the living word
spelled by God’s beloved.

I am God’s child,
friend, devotee, and art.

I am what God does.
I am just what God does.
I am what God does.

Words by Shambhavi Sarasvati. Music by Sahaji Rablin and Shambhavi.
