Prīti Gīti – Devotional Songs and Prayers
This Songbook has been compiled for the use of students at Jiva Institute and friends. The songs and prayers contained in it are the compositions of the great teachers of the Gaudyīa Vaiṣṇava school, who teach the mood of surrender and pure devotion. They are in Sanskrit, Bengali, Braja-bhāṣa and also in Hindi and have English translations.
The book includes some important prayers and songs from Śrīmad BhāgavataPurāṇa, which are part of the daily morning program of Babaji Satyanarayana Dasa at Jiva Institute, Vrindavan. The study of these prayers is highly recommended by Śrī Jīva Gosvamī in Bhakti Sandarbha.
Author: Satyanarayana Dasa Satyanarayana Dasa, born in 1954, was drawn to the spiritual traditions of his home country India since his childhood. After receiving a postgraduate degree in 1978 from IIT Delhi and working in the United States for four years, he returned to India. There he studied the formal systems of Indian philosophy known as Ṣaḍ-darśana under the direct guidance of his guru Śrī Haridāsa Śāstrī Mahārāja and Swami Syama Saraṇa Maharaja. This education was taken up in the traditional manner for more than 25 years, while he dedicated himself as a practitioner of bhakti yoga. In 1991 he accepted the traditional Vaiṣṇava order of renounced life, bābājī-veṣa. His main focus has been with the works of Jiva Gosvami, particularly on translating the Ṣaṭ Sandarbhas, into English and commenting on them. He also earned four śāstric degrees, and received both a law degree and a PhD in Sanskrit from Agra University.
Satyanarayana Dasa is the director of the Jiva Institute of Vaishnava Studies in Vrindavan, India. He is a visiting professor at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. In 2013 he was honored by the president of India, Pranab Mukherjee, for his extraordinary contribution in presenting Vedic culture and philosophy, both nationally and internationally.

To take a human birth is rare. What is more rare is to have association with a Sadhu. But even more rare than that is to get Bhakti. There is nothing more rare than Bhakti. Most of us don’t realize how rare and precious this opportunity we have is. Once we understand, then we don’t want to miss it because life can go away at any time. So we should make an effort for Bhakti. Our life is meant for this only.
