Sometimes transliterated as: Raghu Pati Raghava Rajaram, Raghu Pati RAghava RAjArAm, Raghu Pati Raaghava Raajaaraam


Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram are the opening words of a popular Bhajan also known as Ram Dhun. There are two versions available for this bhajan. The earlier version is not as popular as the lateral version. The second or lateral version is created by M.K.Gandhi based on the first version. Though many attribute the first version to Lakshmanacharya and opine that it is part of his nama ramayanam, but nama ramayanam does not have the verses said to be part of Ram Dhun. The lateral version of the bhajan has gained popularity in the Salt March to Dandi, Gujarat which was led by M.K.Gandhi as part of freedom movement in India in 1930. The lateral version was musically developed by Pandit Vishnu Digambar Paluskar, who was a follower of M.K.Gandhi.

First Version of Ram Dhun

raghupati rāghava rājārām, patita pāvana sītārām

sundara vigraha megha śyām, gangā tulasī śālagrām

bhadragirīśvara sītārām, bhagatajanapriya sītārām

jānakīramaṇa sītārām, jaya jaya rāghava sītārām

Lateral Version of Ram Dhun

raghupati rāghav rājārām, patit pāvan sītārām

sītārām, sītārām, bhaj pyāre tu sītārām

ishwar allah tero nām sab ko sanmati de bhagavān

rāma rahīm karīm samān hama saba hai unaki santān

saba milā māṅge yaha varadān hamārā rahe mānava kā jñān
