Namo Namo – Amit Trivedi

August Theme 

This song is from the Hindi Film – Kedarnath starring Sushant Singh Rajput (God bless his soul) and Sara Ali Khan.

I reached the theatre late, so missed the first five minutes of the film and no sooner I sat down this song started playing. Hearing this song in the theatre is a different experience and I was immediately hooked onto the song.

This song is not a hymn or a mantra, it’s a spiritual song portraying the deeds and love for Lord Shiva.

Jai ho jai ho shankara… aadi deva shankara…

Glory to you Shankara, the eldest God Shiv ji

Tere jaap ke bina chale ye saans kis tarah

Without chanting your name how can my breath survive?

Mera karm tu hi jaane

You know all my deeds

Kya bura hai kya bhalaa

What wrong or what good deeds I’ve performed

Tere raaste pe main toh aankh moond ke chalaa

I walk on your path with eyes closed with faith

Tere naam ki jot ne saara har liya tamas mera…

The charm of your name has taken away all darkness from me

Namo namo ji shankara bholenath shankara

All hail the chant of Bholenath Shankar ji

Hey triloknath Shambhu hey Shivay Shankara

O Triloknath Shambhu o Shiv Shankara

Namo namo ji Shankara Bholenath Shankara

All hail the chant of Bholenath Shankar ji

Rudradev hey Maheshvara

O Rudradev o Maheshvara

Srishti ke janam se bhi… o…

Even before the creation of this earth

Pehle tera vaas tha.. o…

You were there

Ye jag rahe ya naa rahe…. o….

Whether this era remains or not

Rahegi teri aastha… O…..

The faith on you won’t diminish

Kya samay… kya parlay

Whether we talk about time or devastation

Dono mein teri mahaanta

You have achieved greatness in both

Mahaanta mahaanta….

Seepiyon ki ontt main

Inside the shell of an Oyster

Motiyon ho jis tarah

There resides a pearl

Mere mann mein Shankara

Just like that, in my heart o Lord Shankara

Tu basa hai uss tarah

Only you reside

Mujhe bharam tha jo hai mera

The delusion had about possession on earthly matters

Tha nahi kabhi mera

Those were not mine ever.

Arth kya nirarth kya jo bhi hai sabhi tera

Meaningful or meaningless whatever I have is all yours

Tere saamne hai jhuka

In front of you I bow down,

Mere sar pe haath rakh tera

Please keep your palm on my head and bless me

Namo namo ji shankara bholenath shankara

All hail the chant of Bholenath Shankar ji

Hey triloknath Shambhu hey Shivay Shankara

O Triloknath Shambhu o Shiv Shankara

Namo namo ji Shankara Bholenath Shankara

All hail the chant of Bholenath Shankar ji

Rudradev hey Maheshvara

O Rudradev o Maheshvara

Chandrama lalaat pe

The moon resides on your forehead and

Bhasm hai bhujaaon mein

There’s ash (dust) on your arms

Vastra baagh chhal ka…

Your attire is made of skin of tiger

Hai khaadau paanv mein

Pyaas kya aur tujhe

You don’t have thirst

Gaanga hai teri jataaon mein

The great Ganges River flows from your hair

Jataaon mein.. jataaon mein.. jataaon mein…

It was born from your curly hair….

Doosron ke waste

For the sake of others

Tu sadiaive hai jiya

You have spent all your life

Maanga kuch kabhi nehi

You never asked anything from anyone

Tune sirf hai diya

You have only given to others

Samundra manthan ka tha samay jo aa pada

When it was the time of “Churning of the ocean”

Dwand dono lok mein vishamrit pe tha chida

There was a feud between both the world for the distribution of poison and nectar of immortality

Amrit se bhi main baant ke pyaala vish ka tuune

You distributed the nectar of immortality and drank the poison

Namo namo ji shankara bholenath shankara

All hail the chant of Bholenath Shankar ji

Hey triloknath Shambhu hey Shivay Shankara

O Triloknath Shambhu o Shiv Shankara

Namo namo ji Shankara Bholenath Shankara

All hail the chant of Bholenath Shankar ji

Rudradev hey Maheshvara

O Rudradev o Maheshvara

Rudradev hey Maheshavara

O Rudradev o Maheshvara

Rudradev hey Maheshavara

O Rudradev o Maheshvara
