Thumak Chalat Ram Chandra

Last updated

Thumak Chalat Ram Chandra is a bhajan (Hindu devotional song) written in the 16th century by the poet Goswami Tulsidas (गोस्वामी तुलसीदास). The bhajan glorifies Shri Rama and his characteristics during the childhood. [1] Shri Tulsidasji describes Lord Rama's eyes, ears, and ornaments. He wants to compare Lord Rama's face with worldly wonders but couldn't find anything worthy enough so decides that the only thing comparable to Rama's face is Lord Rama's face itself.




ठुमक चलत रामचंद्र बाजत पैजनियाँ.
किलकि किलकि उठत धाय गिरत भूमि लटपटाय,
धाय मात गोद लेत दशरथकी रनियाँ.
अंचल रज अंग झारि विविध भांति सो दुलारि,
तन मन धन वारि वारि कहत मृदु बचनियाँ.
विद्रुमसे अरुण अधर बोलत मुख मधुर मधुर,
सुभग नासि कामें चारु लटकत लटकनियाँ.
तुलसीदास अति आनंद देखके मुखारविंद,
रघुवर छबिके समान रघुवर छबि बनियाँ
ठुमक चलत रामचंद्र बाजत पैजनियाँ.


Thumak Chalt Ramchandra, Bajat Paijaniya
Kilki Kilki utath dhay girat bhumi latpatae
dhay maat god let Dasharath ki raniya
Anchal raj ang jhari vividh bhanti so dulari
tan man dhan vaari vaari kahat mridu bachaniya
Vridum se arun adhar bolat mukh madhur madhur
subahag nasika me charu latkat latkaniya
Tulsidas ati anand dekh ke mukharvind
raghuvar chhabi ke saman raghubar chhabi baniya
Thumak Chalt Ramchandra, Bajat Paijaniya
