Australia Hriday Khuliya Duliya Duliya

Words and music by Sri Chinmoy


Australia Australia Australia
Hriday khuliya duliya duliya
Janai tomai sneha bhara priti
Tumi ar ami ekatar giti


Australia, Australia, Australia!
I have kept my heart-door wide open.
While swinging in rhapsody, self-amorous trance,
I am offering you my affection-flooded love.
A oneness-song you and I eternally are.

[Composed by Sri Chinmoy on the occasion of his 19th Western flute anniversary. Sri Chinmoy offered his prayerful gratitude to its source, Australia, where he first learned to play the flute, and also to his super-excellent audience: kangaroo-kingdom.]
