'Akhiyan Hari Darashan ki pyasi' is a song deeply immersed in the feeling of seperation from the Divine. The depth of devotion is portrayed by Ragas of the Pooriya family and Lalit. The Ragas seemlessly blend into each other highlighting the emotion of devotion. This is a Bhajan of the saint poet Soordasji. These verses describe the conversation between the Gopikas and Krishna's learned friend Uddhav.
