कैवल्याष्टकम् अथवा केवलाष्टकम् Lyrics in Hindi:

मधुरं मधुरेभ्योऽपि मङ्गलेभ्योपि मङ्गलम् ।
पावनं पावनेभ्योऽपि हरेर्नामैव केवलम् ॥ १॥

आब्रह्मस्तम्बपर्यन्तं सर्वं मायामयं जगत् ।
सत्यं सत्यं पुनः सत्यं हरेर्नामैव केवलम् ॥ २॥

स गुरुः स पिता चापि सा माता बान्धवोऽपि सः ।
शिक्षयेच्चेत्सदा स्मर्तुं हरेर्नामैव केवलम् ॥ ३॥

निःश्र्वासे न हि विश्र्वासः कदा रुद्धो भविष्यति ।
कीर्तनीयमतो बाल्याद्धरेर्नामैव केवलम् ॥ ४॥

हरिः सदा वसेत्तत्र यत्र भगवता जनाः ।
गायन्ति भक्तिभावेन हरेर्नामैव केवलम् ॥ ५॥

अहो दुःखं महादुःखं दुःखद् दुःखतरं यतः ।
काचार्थं विस्मृतं रत्नं हरेर्नामैव केवलम् ॥ ६॥

दीयतां दीयतां कर्णो नीयतां नीयतां वचः ।
गीयतां गीयतां नित्यं हरेर्नामैव केवलम् ॥ ७॥

तृणीकृत्य जगत्सर्वं राजते सकलोपरि ।
चिदानन्दमयं शुद्धं हरेर्नामैव केवलम् ॥ ८॥

Kaivalyashtakam Meaning:

Only the name of Hari,
Is sweeter than sweet,
Is better than the best,
And purer than the pure.

Only the name of Hari,
Is truth and again the truth,
From the beginning to eternity,
In this world which is full of illusion.

If some one teaches always that,
Only the name of Hari is to be thought of,
He is the teacher, He is the father,
He is the mother and he is the relative.

There is no certainty of the breath,
As to when it will stop forever,
And so we have to sing from childhood,
Only the name of Hari.

Hari lives in that place,
Where learned devotees,
Sing with great devotion,
Only the name of Hari.

Alas, sorrow great sorrow.
Greater sorrow than sorrow,
Is for him who forgets the jewel,
That is, Only the name of Hari,
For the sake of a glass piece of pleasure

Give and give again your ears,
Tell and tell again with your words,
Sing, sing again daily and forever that,
There is only the name of Hari.

Making the entire old like a twig,
Shines and rules over every other thing,
Is Only the name of Hari,
Which is full of eternal joy.
