Vishwanath sings the hymn of the "Nirvanashatakam" during a satsang at the Yoga Vidya Ashram in Bad Meinberg, Germany. You can find an English translation of this kirtan in our Yoga Vidya Online Community - click here - or you can find the lyrics in the Yoga Vidya Kirtanheft as No. 404.

The Nirvanashatakam are six educational verses to freedom or nirvana by Shankara (also Sankara or Shree Shankaracharya). In each verse, Shankara tells us what we are NOT. We are not the body, we are not the intellect, we are not our thoughts and we are not our prana. Instead we are Sadchidananda (also Satchidananda) thus Absolute Bliss, absolute Knowledge and absolute Existence. Only Brahman, the Absolute is real, everything else is a temporary dream or Maya, the illusion.

Om Shanti,
yours Omkara.
