Devotional Songs - Pad Kirtan
on Dham Madhuri
(Sweetness of the Divine Abode)
This is from the collection of devotional songs or pad kirtan in "Prem Ras Madira" on Dham Madhuri or the sweetness of Radha Krishna's Divine abode.
Dham or the Divine abode (called Golok) is an eternal manifestation of Radha Krishna, where each and every particle is another form of Divine love bliss.
The Divine abode is one of six different aspects of the power of Divine love of Radha Krishna. These six aspects are nam (Divine name), roop (Divine form), guna (Divine qualities or virtues), leela (Divine pastimes), dham (Divine abode), and jan (Divine Saints).
Rasik Saints explain that all of these are one and the same, in the sense that they all equally represent the power of Divine love. This means we can meditate on any one of these aspects and they all have equal spiritual benefit in our devotional remembrance. Click here for Hindi.
