Om Jai Shiv Omkara – Lord Shiva Aarti: Lyrics in Sanskrit

Om Jai Shiv Omkara – Lord Shiva Aarti lyrics:

“Jai Shiv Omkara Har Shiv Omkara,
Brahma Vishnu Sadashiv Arddhagni Dhara.
Om hara hara Mahaadevaa…

Ekanan Chaturanan Panchanan Rajai,
Hansanan Garudasan Vrishvahan Sajai.
Om hara hara Mahaadevaa…

Do Bhuj Char Chaturbhuj Das Bhuj Te Sohai,
Tinon Roop Nirakhta Tribhuvan Jan Mohai.
Om hara hara Mahaadevaa…

Akshaymala Vanmala Mundmala Dhari,
Chadan Mrigmad Sohai Bhale Shashi Dhari.
Om hara hara Mahaadevaa…

Shvetambar Pitambar Baghambar Ange,
Sankadik Brahmadik Bhootadik Sange.
Om hara hara Mahaadevaa…

Kar Men Shreshth Kamandalu Chakra Trishooldharta,
Jagkarta Jagharta Jag Palankarta.
Om hara hara Mahaadevaa…

Brahma Vishnu Sadashiv Janat Aviveka,
Pranvakshar Ke Madhye Yah Tinon Eka.
Om hara hara Mahaadevaa…

Trigun Shiv Ki Aarti Jo Koi Nar Gave,
Kahat Shivanand Swami Manvanchhit Phal Pave.
Om hara hara Mahaadevaa…”

Om Jai Shiv Omkara – Lord Shiva Aarti – Translation In English

“Glory to you, O Lord Shiva! Glory to you, O Omkaara! May Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, and the assembly of other gods, including the great Lord Shiva, relieve me of my sufferings!

Being the Absolute, True being, Consciousness, and Bliss, you play the roles of all the 3 Gods – Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, and Lord Shiva. As Lord Vishnu, you have but one face, as Lord Brahma four and as Lord Shiva five. They gladden the sight of all who behold them. As Lord Brahma, you prefer the back of the swan for your seat, as Lord Vishnu, you like to ensconce yourself on the back of Garuda, and as Lord Shiva you make the sacred bull your conveyance; all these are standing ready. O Great Lord, pray rid me of my sufferings!

As Brahma, you possess two arms, as Lord Vishnu four and as Lord Shiva ten, all of which look matchlessly lovely. No sooner do the inhabitants of the three spheres behold you than they are all enchanted. O great Lord Omkaara, pray rid me of my sufferings.

You are, O great Lord Omkaara, wearing a garland of Rudraaksha, another of forest flowers the 3rd of skulls; your forehead, glistening in the moonlight which it holds, is smeared with sandal-paste and musk. Pray rid me of my sufferings.

O great Lord Omkaara, your body is attired in yellow and white silken clothes and in tiger skin, while in your company are troops of goblins, gods like Lord Brahma and divine seers like Sanaka. Pray rid me of my sufferings.

O great Lord Omkaara, you hold akamandalu in one of your hands and in another a trident; you bring joy to all, destroy all distress and sustain the whole world. May you rid me of all my sufferings!

The ignorant know Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, and Lord Shiva as three individual gods, but they are all inevitably fused into a single mystic syllable, “OM.” Pray rid me of my sufferings.

Says Swami Shivananda, „He who chants this Arti to the Lord of the three gunas-sattva, tamas, and rajas – attains the fulfillment of his heart’s desire.” O great Lord Omkaara, may you rid me of my sufferings.”


Om Jai Shiv Omkara is a Hindi Bhajan song dedicated to Lord Mahadev or Lord Shiva. This beautiful Shiv Aarti was composed by Shivanand Swami. Lord Shiva is worshiped as Omkar Swaropa or the Omkar, which is the universal sacred sound or the universal ever-existant.

In His abstract form, Shivji is worshiped as a Lingam, also known as a Shivling. This representation portrays His limitless, unchanging, transcendent, and formless qualities.

Lord Shiva once said:

”In the age of Kali, there is no greater virtue conducive to the achievement of liberation, than listening to the Shivapurana.”

Listen to more pacifying bhajans on insightstate, such as Oha Prem Piri – Meditative Gurbani.
