Yogeshwaraya Mahadevaya | Pandit Jasraj | Raag Shuddh Nat | Hindustani Classical | Shiva Stotram

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. This Yogeshwaraya chant in Raag Shuddh Nat is a musical offering by Pandit Jasraj. Rendered in a morning raag, this is a meditative tune that leaves you longing for more. In the yogic tradition, Shiva is not worshiped as a God. He is the Adiyogi, the first Yogi, and AdiGuru, 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.
