Since Shimshai sang this lullaby of Yogini Queen Madalasa on Sunday night, it has been going around and around in my head...
Now that we're in the last third of this year's Navaratri celebration and honoring Saraswati, the goddess of wisdom and purity, it seems especially fitting.

I'm finding alot of variations on this upadesha (instruction), but I've put together text, transliteration, and translation to the best of my ability below.
To see where I got the Devanagari from, click here. Please note, I corrected the transliteration, and merged the translation with Shimshai's English version... whew!!
If you find another version of the Devanagari, or have Shimshai's transliteration (which doesn't seem to match this), please let me know. You know what a yoga geek I am... I'm dying to work out a Shruti Box version! Jai Ma!
शुद्धोसि बुद्धोसि निरँजनोऽसि
सँसारस्वप्नँ त्यज मोहनिद्राँ
Shuddhosi buddhosi niranjanosi
samsara maya parivarjitosi
samsara svapnam tyaja moha nidram
"Madalasa says to her crying son:
You are forever pure. You are forever true.
And the dream of this world can never touch you.
So give up your attachment, and give up your confusion.
And fly to that space that's beyond all illusion."
