Lord Shiva aarti is a wonderful way of worshipping Indian god, Shiv. Read about the arti of Shiva.


Shiva Aarti



God Shiva is one of the principal deities of the Hindus. Shiva is different from all other Indian gods and goddesses because He is as intense as He is mellow. The aarti of Shiva sung by his devotees speak in praise of the Lord. It is always sung after a prayer is performed in his obeisance. Not just Shiv aarti, even elaborate fire worship is observed in Indian homes on the occasion of Maha Shivratri puja. The prayer conducted to the Lord is meant to relieve the believer of all afflictions.

In the Shiva arti, Lord Shiv befits the name 'Maheshwara' as it denotes one who is the creator, preserver and the destroyer of this universe. His true devotees view Indian gods Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh all combined into one Supreme Being 'Om'. Swami Shivananda says one who recites the Shiva aarti (given below) with full dedication will attain fulfillment of his heart's desires. The Shiva aarti is indeed a melodious way of remembering the Lord.

Jai Shiv omkara, Prabhu jai Shiv omkara

Do bhuj, charu chaturbhui dashmukh ati sohe
Tinon rup nirakhte tribhuvan janmohe,

Akshyamaala banamala mundmal dhari

Trigun svaami ki arti jo koi nar gave
Kahat Shivanand svami man vaanchhit phal pave,
Om Har Har Mahadeva.
