Varanasi


Religious and cultural centre, holy city Varanasi
A revered shrine at the bank of holy river Ganges.
Founded by God himself, Lord Shiva’s abode Kashi
Religious and cultural centre, holy city Varanasi.
Bathing in Ganges purifies soul and remits felony,
Dying in Kashi ensures, obtaining the final release.
Religious and cultural centre, holy city Varanasi
A revered shrine at bank of holy river Ganges.

***
Morning mantra hymns make you feel in heaven,
Ghat, temples and festivals, are icons of Varanasi.
Sacred river, sacred place; Hindu's great pilgrimage
Morning mantra hymns make you feel in heaven.
Birth to many great personalities, the city has given,
Great souls Tulsi, Kabir, Ravidas lived in varanasi.
Morning mantra hymns make you feel in heaven
Ghat, temples and festivals, are icons of Varanasi.

***

Varanasi is the city, where Budhism was founded
Sarnath, Budhist’s holy place; is too in Varanasi.
First sermon to his disciples Budha here sounded
Varanasi is the city where Budhism was founded.
Great creations of art, music and literature hounded
Classical folk culture, music, craft and philosophy.
Varanasi is the city where Budhism was founded
Sarnath, Budhist’s holy place, is too in Varanasi.
