Where the Hell is Matt? (2008)


Nothing deep intellectually here, just some heart candy to keep us all happy and manifesting the divine spirit.

If you have the bandwidth, I DO recommend clicking the YouTube "watch in high quality" link at the lower right and then blow it up to full screen and crank the sound!!!

The song "Praan" by Garry Schyman is in Sanskrit.  You can watch another youtube video to see the Sanskrit lyrics on the screen and sing along: http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=IiwpsKfFpoU

And you can read the translation here:

Ok, I’m not entirely sure as the song is in Bengali and even then
they adopted portions of this poem to fit into the song, but here is a
translation of the poem that was the original basis for the song. It
actually fits in well to the video of a guy dancing around the world.

Stream of Life
by Rabindranath Tagore

The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day
runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures.

It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth
in numberless blades of grass
and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.

It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth
and of death, in ebb and in flow.

I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life.
And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment.

UPDATE:  Here are the words in Bengali from the composer’s blog

Praan Lyrics - Transliteration

Some people have asked for this. So here you go.

Bhulbona ar shohojete 
Shei praan e mon uthbe mete
Mrittu majhe dhaka ache
je ontohin praan

Bojre tomar baje bashi
She ki shohoj gaan
Shei shurete jagbo ami 
(Repeat 3X)

Shei jhor jeno shoi anonde
Chittobinar taare
Shotto-shundu dosh digonto
Nachao je jhonkare!

Bojre tomar baje bashi
She ki shohoj gaan
Shei shurete jagbo ami

I watched this video again today and danced along with Matt and all the other people around the world. It got my breath going and I decided to try breathing sacred love with all the people in the video.  It's a great way to get a four minute workout and feel even better afterwards.  Try it!
