Ramani sings the mantra Jaya Shiva Shankara in a Saturday evening Satsang at Yoga Vidya in Bad Meinberg. Jaya Shiva Shankara addresses Shiva in his friendly loving aspect: Shiva means kind, Shankara is the one who does good. Bham, also Bhum, is the sound of Shiva's drum. Hara means to take away - may Shiva take away everything that separates from his experience. But Shiva is also Ati Sundara, exceedingly beautiful. He is Parameshwara, highest God. Daya Karo, Oh Shiva, please have pity on us humans.
Here is the text to sing along:
Jaya Shiva Shankara,
Bam Bam Hara Hara
Hara Hara, Hara Hara,
Hara Bol Hara
Shiva Shiva Shiva Shiva,
(hara Hara, Hara Hara, Hara Ati-sundara)
He Parameshvara Daya Karo
