Shivaay Title Song 

So, I have listened to this song some 100 times maybe and I am yet to get bored by this song. This is a modern day song about Shiva The God which describes him. The music is really catchy but it’s the lyrics that sets it apart as the best song of 2016(for me). 

I am not talking about the movie here but just the song. 

The song has been sung by Mithoon, Mohit Chauhan, Sukhwinder singh, Megha Sriram Dalton, Anurag. 

The main part of the song is Rap which has been sung by Badshah.

There had been news that this song took over 1 year to write down and that does shows up. 

I have given below line by line description of the lyrics. 

Lyrics translation credits – Krazy lyrics

​Aag bahe teri rag mein 

Tujhsa kahaan koi jag mein 

Hai waqt ka tu hi toh pehla pehar 

Tu aankh jo khole toh dhaaye kehar 

Fire flows in your veins 

There is none like you in this world 

You are the first moment of time (Pehar is a traditional unit of time used in India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh. One pehar nominally equals three hours, and there are eight pehars in a day.) 

When you open your eye, you cause destruction (The last line is an allusion to third eye of the God Shiva. It is present on Shiva’s forehead, mostly it is closed.Whosoever is unlucky enough to be viewed by this third eye is destroyed on the spot. Read more about it here.) 

Toh bolo Har har har 

Say, everyone! Toh bolo Har har har 

Na Aadi na anth hai uska 

Woh sabka na inka unka 

Wohi hai maala wohi hai manka 

Mast malang woh apni dhun ka 

He has no beginning or end 

He is for everyone, not just a single person 

He is the garland as well as the beads in it 

He is carefree and happy in his own tune 

Jantar mantar tantar gyaani 

Hai sarvagya swabhimaani 

Mrityunjay hai mahavinaashi 

Omkaar hai isi ki vaani 

He knows all about talismans, magical chants and magical texts 

He is all knowing(omniscient) and self respecting 

He is the conqueror of death and the great destroyer 

His language is Omkaar (The sound of the sacred syllable Om) 

Isi ki Isi ki Isi ki vaani 

Isi ki Isi ki Isi ki vaani 

Bhaang dhatoora bel ka patta 

Teeno lok isi ki satta 

Vish pee kar bhi adag amar hai 

Mahadev har har hai japta 

Bhang, datura, leaves of Aegle marmelos tree (These tree leaves are offered to Lord Shiva.) (Bhaang is an edible preparation of cannabis. It is often given as sacrament to the devotees of Lord Shiva.) 

He has power over all the three words (earth, heaven and hell) He is steady and immortal even after drinking poison (Lord Shiva drank posion during the churning of the ocean by Devas and Asuras) 

Mahadev (Lord of Lords) chants ‘Everyone’! 

Wohi shunya vahi ikaai 

Wohi shunya vahi ikaai 

Wohi shunya vahi ikaai 

Jiske bheetar basa Shivaay 

He is zero(0) as well as one (1), 

He in whom resides Shivaay(God Shiv) 

Aghoranna paro mantra 

Nasti tatvam guro param 

The very name of Aghor (Shiva, or the one who has attained the state of Aghor) is a mantra that is above all other mantras. There is nothing higher to be known than the real nature of the Guru (spiritual teacher) 
Nagendra haraya trilochanaya 

Basmanga ragaya maheshwaraya 

Nithyaya shudhaya digambaraya 

Tasmai nakaraya namashivaya

My salutations to the letter “Na” , which is Shiva, Who wears as garland the king of snakes. Who has three eyes, Who wears ash all over Him, Who is the greatest Lord, Who is forever, Who is the cleanest, 

And who wears the directions themselves as dress 

Aankh moond kar dekh raha hai 

Saath samay ke khel raha hai 

Mahadev maha ekaaki Jiske liye jagat hai jhaanki 

He(Shiv) is watching with closed eyes (eyes closed in meditaion) 

He is playing with time 

The God of Gods is the loneliest 

For him the world is a mere exhibit 

Jata mein Ganga, chaand mukut hai 

Saumya kabhi kabhi bada vikat hai 

Aag se janma hai kailashi 

Shakti jiski daras ki pyaasi 

He has the river Ganges tied in his hair, his crown is the moon 

Sometimes he is gentle, sometimes he is dreadful 

This Kailashi(one who lives in Kailash) is born from fire Goddess Shakti longs to see him 

Hai pyaasi Haan pyaasi 

Ram bhi uska ravan uska 

Jeevan uska maran bhi uska 

Tandav hai aur dhayan bhi woh hai 

Agyaani ka gyaan bhi woh hai 

Ram as well as Raavan belong to him 

Life as well as death belong to him 

He is chaos as well as meditation 

He is knowledge for the ignorant 

Aankh teesri jab yeh khole 

Hile dhara aur swarg bhi doley 

Goonj uthe har disha kshitij mein 

Naam usi ka Bam Bam Bhole 

When Lord Shiva opens his third eye, This world as well as the heaven shakes 

His name echoes in every direction and on the horizon Bam Bam Bhole (The first letter of the first word of the Ramayan is ‘Ba’. 

The last letter of the last word is ‘Ma’. Between Ba and Ma is the entire Ramayan, which is in praise of Shiva’s favorite deity, Vishnu in the form of Ram. Bhole means ‘simple’. Shiva’s life is simple.) 

Wohi shunya vahi ikaay 

Wohi shunya vahi ikaay 

Wohi shunya vahi ikaay 

Jiske bheetar basa Shivaay 

Toh bolo Har har har 

Ja ja Kailash Ja kar vinaash

Ja ja Kailash Ja kar vinaash

Go to Kailash (Mount Kailash is where Lord Shiva lives) 

Go and destroy 

Toh bolo Har har har 

Ja ja Kailash 

Ja kar vinaash 

Ja ja Kailash 

Ja kar vinaash 

Yaksha swarupaya jatta dharaya 

Pinaka hasthathaya sanathanaya 

Divyaya devaaya digambaraya 

Tasmai yakaraya namashivaya 

My salutations to the letter “Ya” , which is Shiva, 

Who takes the form of Yaksha, 

Who has a tufted hair, 

Who is armed with spear, 

Who is forever filled with peace, 

Who is godly, 

Who is the great God, 

And who wears the directions themselves as dress.

    1. Yup both are beautiful songs but this has something strange thing which keeps me pulling towards it. Maybe because it is about explaining a God and I love Shiva as a God. 😁
