Brahma Nandam - Deva Premal live

Brahma Nandam preformed by Deva Premal and Miten

Deva Premal has one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard. Clear and perfect, like and angel. You can feel Spirit moving through her as she sings. I got chills as I was listening, as I often do when she sings. Song - Brahma Nandam, album - Dakshina (2005).

Translation of the Lyrics...

Salutations to the inner guru, the inner guiding light.
Who is the embodiment of pure delight,
Who is the giver of supreme happiness.
Who is beyond the dualities of this material world;
Who is as infinite as the sky. 
Who is the sole aspiration and goal of life;
Who is unique, eternal, pure, unwavering.
Who sees with the eyes of wisdom;
Who is beyond emotions and beyond the three gunas (binding aspects of our nature) - Sattva (bliss), Rajas (animal instinct) and Tamas (lethargy).

Lord BrahmaBrahma is defined as the 'one self-existent Spirit , the Absolute'.

Lord Brahma is the Creator of the Universe whose essence makes up the cosmos. The supreme eternal deity. He was born within the void before creation.  The cosmic subtle body is believed to be the creator of the entire universe... this is Brahma, the Creator. Brahma's consort is Saraswati, the Goddess of knowledge. Creation cannot be accomplished without Knowledge/Wisdom. Because we are form, or in creation, Brahma is not often worshiped. The exceptions, if one wishes to understand an aspect of Creation or to be inspired with creative ideas which serve all.

The triad of Brahma (creation), Vishnu (maintenance) and Shiva (destruction) represent different aspects of God. Life is a manifestation of those principles (creation, sustenance and destruction) such as  birth, life and death.  Or sunrise, day, sunset; as well sunset, night, sunrise and so forth. Brahma is the essence of Soul or Inner Guiding Light.
