How can I even dare think of touching you even from a threshold? As belong to a very low caste. If I want to look at you, how can I dare to do it? As I am a downtrodden and lowly person. I shall at the best stand by your doorstep transfixed singing abhangs.
Lets go to the banks of Chandrabhaga and sing and dance there. Lets bath wholly in the waters of Chandrabhaga. Lets chant the name of Vithala and dissociate ourselves from everything.
Aashaadi Kaarthiki Bhakta Jana Yethi Pandharichya Vaalvanti Sant Gola Hothi Chokha Mhane Naam Ghethaa Bhaktha Hothi Dhang
The devotees throng Pandharpur for the festival of Kaarthiki in the month of Aashaada. All the saints will gather in the riverbanks of Chandrabhaga at Pandharpur. Chokha says all the devotees are in a trance while singing the name of the lord.

On the occassion of Holi we are glad to share the Abhang "Abeer Gulaal" by Sant Chokhamela.
"Abeer Gulaal" means fragrant colour powder.
Panduranga dances amidst such colour powder.
The lyrics of the Abhang with meaning and the audio link sung by Sri Pandit Jitendra Abhisheki is shared in the following link.
We are thankful to Sri Srinivas Mahalingam for the translation of this Abhang which was published in the 20th issue of our eMagazine Amritha Varshini. We also thank Sri Ramakrishna Bhagavathar of Tiruvisalur Mutt who guided us in this task.
Wishing the readers of Amritha Varshini & Amritha Vahini a happy HOLI.
