Sandhya Aarti Mantra | Sanskrit Lyrics

Sandhya aarti is one of the five types of aarti performed to worship a deity. In Hinduism, it’s a central rite of worship, and frequently accompanied with the singing of a mantra, hymn, or song in praise of the deity. The word “Aarti” comes from the Sanskrit word “Aratrika” – which means “to remove darkness”.

According to some experts, aarti evolved from the vedic concept of fire ritual, also known as homa or yajna. Aarti is typically performed one to five times per day at the end or beginning of a puja. Furthermore, almost all Hindu ceremonies and occasions are accompanied by the performance of an aarti.

Aarti Is an Important Ritual for Millions of Hindus

Aarti is a unique ritual for millions of Hindus as it’s performed not only for gods but also for other forms of life and inanimate objects. As a result, you may have seen people performing aarti for their guests or in front of their newly purchased car or other expensive objects.

During aarti, people usually light an oil lamp and move it three times in a clockwise circular motion in front of the deity. Sandhya aarti is a part of the daily worship of gods which is practiced both at home and in a temple every evening at the same time.

Therefore, it can be seen being performed in the evening between 6-7 pm in all temples in India. In short, the sandhya aarti, like all types of aarti, serves as a symbol of gratitude and submission to the deity. It also signifies the continuous cycle of life energy.

The mantras chanted during sandhya aarti differ greatly from one ritual to another. There are, however, a few popular sandhya aarti mantras or hymns that can be recited while performing the aarti. The Sandhya stotram is one such popular sandhya aarti mantra.

ॐ अहो देवि महादेवि सन्ध्ये विद्ये सरस्वति ।
अजरे अमरे चैव ब्रह्मयोने नमोऽस्तुते ॥
सन्ध्ये देवि नमोऽस्तुते ॥

Om. aho devi mahadevi sandhye vidye sarasvati,
Ajare amare chaiva brahmayone namostute.

देवि त्वं प्राकृतचित्तं पापाक्रान्तमभून्मम ।
तन्निःसारय चित्तान्मे पापं हुं फट् नमोऽस्तुते ॥

devi tvam prakrrita-chittam papakrantam-abhunmama,
tannihsaraya chittnme papam hum phat namostute.

दीप्ता सूक्ष्मा जया भद्रा विभूतिर्विमला तथा ।
अमोघा विद्युता चेति मध्ये श्रीः सर्वतोमुखी ॥

dipta sukshma jaya bhadra vibhutir-vimala tatha,
amogha vidyuta cheti madhye shrih sarvatomukhi.

नमस्ते देवदेवेशि सर्वतृप्तिकरे परे ।
अमृतानन्दमयि सन्ध्ये देवि तस्यैः नमो नमः ॥

sarasvati prakrriti-dhatri sandhye devi namostute.

आत्मारूप ज्ञातुं प्राप्तुं ज्ञानं निष्कल्मिषं ऋतम् ।
सन्ध्यास्तोत्रं पठेन्नित्यं सर्वकामार्थ सिद्धये ॥
सन्ध्ये देवि नमोऽस्तुते॥

sandhya stotram pathennityam sarvakamartha siddhaye.
sandhye devi namostute.
