Queen of Heaven

Anandamayi Ma
June 26 2019

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.

Shambhavi started producing dohas during a personal retreat. As she says, “Dohas are intimate self-expressions at the same time that they speak about the essence of existence and waking up.”

lyrics

Queen of heaven
Queen of earth
Queen of all hearts
in every realm

I call you Lord
I call you Parā
I call you Guru
I call you Mā

Bathe your feet in the fountain at my crown
Your laughter is the gift returned to me
Come sit in the temple of my heart
Your compassion is the gift returned to me

Shelter of the beggars
Home of the lost
Compass of the wanderers
who follow your voice

You call me shishya
You call me child
You call me servant
You call me your own

Let my head remain forever at your feet
Let me live in contemplation of your ways
Let the nectar of devotion be my food
Let me find myself in your eternal grace

Queen of heaven
Queen of earth
Queen of all hearts
in every realm

I call you Lord
I call you Parā
I call you Guru
I call you Mā
