Yogeshwaraya Mahadevaya Instrumental – Rakesh Chaurasia | Bansuri – Shiva Stotram (Sounds of Isha)

    This instrumental rendition of the Yogeshwaraya chant is by bansuri maestro Rakesh Chaurasia. Playing mesmerizingly, he gives a surreal feel to this ancient chant.

    In the Indian tradition, Shiva, the Adiyogi has many forms, each of which represents a powerful possibility for inner evolution. Yogeshwaraya – meaning the lord of Yoga – is a musical offering to Adiyogi by Sounds of Isha, Pandit Jasraj and Rakesh Chaurasia.

    In the yogic tradition, Shiva is not worshiped as a God. He is the Adiyogi, the first Yogi, and Adi Guru, the First Guru from whom the yogic sciences originated. Guru Purnima is celebrated as the day when Adiyogi began the transmission of these sciences to the Saptarishis, his first seven disciples. So this Guru purnima, this is our musical garland. An offering of different renditions of the Yogeshwaraya chant to the Adiyogi.

    Lyrics and Meaning:

    Yogeshwaraya Mahadevaya
    The Lord of Yoga, the great one

    Trayambakaya Tripurantakaya
    Three-eyed one, destroyer of the Tripura

    Trikagni Kalaya Kalagni Rudraya
    He who like fire, devours the past, present and future within himself

    Neelakantaya Mrityunjayaya
    Blue-throated one, who has conquered death

    Sarveshwaraya Sadashivaya
    Lord of everything, the eternal one

    Mahadevaya Namaha
    Oh great one, we bow down to you
