Soweto, South Africa, Hare Krishna rap.

We have heard from authorities that there is a new Hare Krishna rap mantra in Soweto,  Johannesburg, South Africa. It goes like this:

Ain’t no party like a KRISHNA party, cause a KRISHNA party don’t stop hey!

Ain’t no party like a KRISHNA party, cause a KRISHNA party don’t stop hey!

Ain’t no party like a KRISHNA party, cause a KRISHNA party don’t stop hey!

Ain’t no party like a KRISHNA party, cause a KRISHNA party don’t stop hey!

 

My own additional refrain.

Yes, I have lost my heart in OUAGADOUGOU to Sri Sri Radha-Ouagadougouisvara hey!

Yes, I have lost my heart in OUAGADOUGOU to Sri Sri Radha-Ouagadougouisvara hey!

Yes, I have lost my heart in OUAGADOUGOU to Sri Sri Radha-Ouagadougouisvara hey!

 

Of course the absolute antecedent is:

krishna krishna krishna krishna krishna krishna krishna he
krishna krishna krishna krishna krishna krishna krishna he
krishna krishna krishna krishna krishna krishna raksha maam
krishna krishna krishna krishna krishna krishna paahi maam
raama raaghava raama raaghava raama raaghava raksha maam
krishna keshava krishna keshava krishna keshava paahi maam

This song was sung by Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu Himself. Almost like a mad lion filled with ecstatic love of Godhead and performing Sankirtan, chanting Sri Krishna’s names as above, He, the Supreme Personality of Godhead Himself, disguised as a devotee (bhakta), went on His tour of South India. Caitanya Caritamrta Madhya 7. 95-96. This happened in the early sixteenths century, as we find on plate 3 of 18 volumes edition of Sri Caitanya Caritamrata, Madhya Vol 3. The plate reads as follows: “Mahaprabhu visited Mangalgiri in 1512 A.D. Chaitanya- Foot-prints installed by Paramhansa Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Goswami in 1930.”        All glories to Srila Prabhupada!!!
