Om Jai Shiv Omkara

Om Jai Shiv Omkara is a hymn addressed to Lord Shiva and is popularly called as ‘Shivji ki aarti’ as this bhajan or song is sung while performing rituals to Lord Shiva in temples. It is famous throughout the north of India. It is written by a monk called Swami Shivananda probably in or around the city of Varanasi. In the late nineteenth century, Swami Vivekananda heard this hymn being recited in Varanasi and then brought it back to the Belur Math (headquarters of the Ramakrishna Mission) in Bengal.

Jai shiv omkar

Of all the arati hymns, this one is unique because although it is addressed to Shiva and is Shaivite in nature, it brings out the idea that Shiva is to be realized as the Self of all, and in Shiva oneness of the so-called Triumvirate of Creator-Sustainer-Dissolver is realized. Shaivism teaches that the so-called Triumvirate or “Hindu Trinity” exists only in a matter of speaking. In reality, there is only that One, Shiva, who in different capacities may be called Creator, Sustainer, and Dissolver. Shaivism, therefore, is not the religion of the Dissolver God, even if this is a popular understanding among many.

Nowhere is the bhajan in both English and Hindi.
