Vunde gurunam caranaravinde
Sandarsita svatma sukhavabodhe
Nihsreyase jangalikayamane
Sansara halahala moha santyai
Hala hala
Ahahu purusakaram sankha cakrasi
Ahahu purusakaram sankha cakrasi
Dharinam dharinam sahasra sirasam
Dharinam dharinam sahasra sirasam
Vande

Om Shanti, Om Shanti
Shanti shanti
Shantay Om

Om Shanti, Om Shanti
Shanti shanti
Shantay Om

Vunde gurunam caranaravinde
Sandarsita svatma sukhavabodhe
Nihsreyase jangalikayamane
Sansara halahala moha santyai
Hala hala
Ahahu purusakaram sankha cakrasi
Ahahu purusakaram sankha cakrasi
Dharinam dharinam sahasra sirasam
Dharinam dharinam sahasra sirasam
Vande

Om Shanti, Om Shanti
Shanti shanti
Shantay Om

Om Shanti, Om Shanti
Shanti shanti
Shantay Om

    General Commentin actuality, this song is a buddhist chant/mantra. :] madonna was kindly nodding towards eastern religion by covering it, & i love it!

    My Interpretation"I worship the gurus lotus feet"
    (I give respect and aim to walk where the Teacher walks, to learn from Him)

    "Awakening the happiness of the self revealed"
    (when the Teacher reveals that ego is unreal, happiness is inevitable)

    "Beyond comparison, working like the jungle Physician"
    (the Teacher cannot be compared to any other and spreads healing)

    "To pacify loss of consciousness from the Poison of existence"
    (the Teacher removes the distractions in day-to-day that rob of knowledge and experience of what is true and real)

    "In the form of a man up to the shoulders"
    (bound physically to the material world, yet the Teacher is free to connect to and be conscious and in relation to the divine within and without (heavenly) at all times by mind and soul)

    "Holding a conch, discus and sword"
    (the Teacher has the means of communicating to all, giving any tools necessary and able to defeat the enemy, which attacks by fear, apathy and confusion - the conch is internal soul to soul connection, the discus is infallible ability to get done any task with what is at hand, the sword is truth and love)

    "Thousand headed, white"
    (the Teacher is in all creation and all creatures - and is pure and sinless by nature)

    "I bow respectfully"
    (to the Teacher I give my best and above all, I honor thee)

    "Peace"
    (be to you and to all what it is that You - the Teacher - the Master - God - intended in what is when creating it, and what You will now and to come: love and life in all things, and in all things realization of the unbreakable infinite bond between heaven and earth, the material and the spiritual ...understanding that not even death can separate...for there is no death, there is only love and light)

    That's my too sense any way

    General Commentthis song is not that weird as madonna, madonna's kaballah crew and will orbit would like to make you think it is. it sure sticks out as a sore thumb in the ray of light album but it's a good track. good production by orbit and madonna makes her best impression to sound mystic and hypnotic. one thing is sure tho, it's a good cut to indulge yourself in some (il)legal drugs in.
