The Guardian of The Heart Sanctuary | A Song to Remember


 

The beautiful and old song "Pasban Haram Del" (means the guardian of the heart sanctuary) of Mohammad Reza Shajarian belongs to the album Del Shodegan (Lovers) and has been played in a film of the same name directed by Ali Hatami, one of the famous Iranian directors.

 

In the word “Del Shodegan”, “Del” means “heart” and “Shodegan” means “giving”. So, the complete word literary means those who are much in love that they “are giving their hearts away”…

 

 

Song: The Guardian of the Heart Sanctuary (Pasbane Haram Del)

Singer: Mohammad Reza Shajarian

 

 

A scene from the movie Lovers

 

Lyrics

I am the guardian of the heart sanctuary!!

All night… All night long

I am the guardian of the heart sanctuary!!

All night… All night long

(I'll guard my love all night if necessary!)

The Guardian of The Sanctuary of The Heart | A Song to Remember

So there won’t be any thought except her's on this curtain

O God of the heart

(Curtain here means the sanctuary of the heart)

The Guardian of The Sanctuary of The Heart | A Song to Remember

My fortunate thought fell asleep

While looking at her myth

Is there a breeze to awaken me with grace?

The Guardian of The Sanctuary of The Heart | A Song to Remember

 

My love is sleeping under the Nastaran flower

Just wearing one layer closing!

I'm afraid that the smell of Nastaran

Awaken her, as she is drunken sleep!

(Nastaran is the Persian name for Rosa canina flower)

(The rest of the poetry is from Torab Jahromi & sleeping under a flower with a layer of clothing actually means her passing away and burial.)

The Guardian of The Sanctuary of The Heart | A Song to Remember

O sun, slowly set foot in the sanctuary of my love!

I am afraid that the sound of your foot,

Awake her as she is well sleep!!

The Guardian of The Sanctuary of The Heart | A Song to Remember

O sun, slowly set foot in the sanctuary of my love!

I am afraid of the sound of your foot,

Awake her as she is well sleep!!

The Guardian of The Sanctuary of The Heart | A Song to Remember

(He is in denial with the fact that his sweetheart is dead and wanted to believe she is asleep and some factors might disturb her sweet dream!)
