Video and Audio

Door of My Heart

July 8, 2020

This virtual kirtan of a chant by Paramhansa Yogananda features devotee musicians from Ananda. The musicians traded tracks with each other from lockdown over the last two months, videoing themselves recording, and sharing inspiration and satsang through this divine music. Panduranga, at Ananda Village mixed and mastered the combined tracks, Baraquiel in Pune synced and edited the video and audio tracks, and Ishani in Delhi finished the editing and provided mystical visuals to enhance the experience. Enjoy!


Door of My Heart (by Paramhansa Yogananda)

Door of my heart, open wide I keep for Thee.

Wilt Thou come, wilt Thou come?

just for once come to me?

Will my days fly away without seeing Thee, my Lord?

Night and day, night and day,

I look for Thee night and day.


(Bengali) For this version, begin with the melody of “Will my days fly away”.

Jabe kihe dino amar biphale bohye.

Dibi nishi achhi bosi asa-patha nirokhiye.

Hridaya kutiro dwar khola acche anibar.

Daya kore ekobar ese kid jurabe hiye.



Porta del mio cuor tengo aperta io per Te.

Verrai Tu, verrai Tu, una volta vieni a me.

Fugiranno i miei di senza veder Te, O Signor?

Notte e di, notte e di, io Ti cerco notte e di.



Puerta de mi corazon tengo abierta para Ti.

Ven a mi, ven a mi, una vez ven a mi.

Pasaran mis dias, sin verte mi Señor?

Noche y dia, noche y dia, yo Te busco noche y dia.



Meines Herzens Tuer, offen halt’ ich sie fuer Dich.

Kommst Du wohl, kommst Du wohl, ach nur einmal komm’ zu mir.

Wird entschwinden mir die Zeit, ohne dass ich schau Dich, Herr?

Tag und Nacht, Tag und Nacht, ich erwart’ Dich Tag und Nacht.
