English Translation:

 

I worship the gurus' lotus feet

Awakening the happiness of the self revealed

Beyond comparison, working like the jungle physician

To pacify loss of consciousness from the poison of existence

In the form of a man up to the shoulders

Holding a conch, discus and sword

Thousand headed, white

I bow respectfully

Peace

Song

Shanti/Ashtangi @ VMA 1998While producing the Ray Of Light album, Madonna was greatly inspired by Eastern spirituality, and especially the Kabbalah. So she decided to make this song in Sanskrit. It was a B-single for Frozen (US and UK).

She performed Shanti/Ashtangi and Ray Of Light on the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards, with Lenny Kravitz as guitar backup.
