Hor Vi Neevan Ho – by the band Noori

I have been listening to this song a lot – Hor Vi Neevan Ho – by the band Noori, with their mother on Sagar Veena.

It is essentially a deeply moving call to oneself, that one must bow down and become more humble. It exalts the listener, that no matter how many heights one thinks they have achieved, they are still just a small spec of dust compared to the vast wonderous Universe.

Ultimately, that is the only way to accept Oneness.

Lyrics and English Translation below –

Hor vi neevan ho
Bow your head even further down in humility

Uccha saroon hai gharoor mein
There is great pleasure in holding the head high in arrogance

Kadhi naa phall paiye, fakira
But, that pleasure will never be fulfilling

Paiye gaa deedar sahib da
One day you will be bestowed with the Lord’s presence

Ho rabba koi meray dil diyan kadraan pachanay
L
ord, if only someone could understand the deliberations of my heart

Mein sawali jinna naeen koi sawal
I am a seeker who seeks nothing

Mein jogan ban dar dar phir diye
I am a wanderer, roaming from one land to another

Koi na meriyan, ramzaan pachanay
No one can unravel the secrets within me

Mein jogan ban dar day phiriyaan way
I am a wanderer, roaming from one land to another

Koi na meriyan, ramzaan pachanay
No one can unravel the secrets within me

Mein jogan
I am a wanderer

Chal meray naal
Come along, come with me

Hor vi neevan ho
Bow your head down further down in humility
