about

This is an adapted cover version of the song by Singh Kaur which is originally translated from Sukhmani Sahib (Peace Lagoon) of the Sikhs.
I was inspired to sing it after hearing a dear friend Khalsa Kaur sing it in the ambrosial hours under the stars in the New Mexico desert during the rensabhai (all night devotional music). I recorded it the next day up the mountain through my laptop speakers.

lyrics

My eyes are damp with the Nectar of the Lord.

My Soul is filled with your Love.

you tested my Heart with your Touchstone,

and Found it to be Pure.


Through the Guru, I am dyed a Deep Crimson.



This body and mind are wet with the Love of the Lord.

Nanak, the slave has been drenched in your Fragrance,

and this life of mine has been blessed.



The song of the Lord's Love is like the piercing arrow.

It has struck deep into my Heart.

Those who have felt Love's pain know how to withstand it.


The one who dies to this life while yet alive,

has achieved Liberation in their lifetime.



Oh, God, make thy slave to meet with the True Guru.

So we can cross the difficult ocean...

So we can cross the difficult ocean...

So we can cross this difficult ocean of the world.
...



My eyes are damp with the Nectar of the Lord...
My eyes are damp with the Nectar of the Lord...

My Soul is filled with your Love.

you tested my Heart with your Touchstone,

and Found it to be Pure.



Through the Guru, I am dyed a Deep Crimson.

about

Bachan Mexico

The sound of Bachan Kaur’s voice can make you forget what you’re doing and remember who you are.

Mysticism infuses her sound with kaleidoscopic luminescence.
Sparse dreamy electronica, organic earthy acoustics, soul stirring poetics, and the occasional boom and clack.

Mother earth and the human heart are the bread and butter of this artist’s intention and you can taste it in every song.
