Hori Hor Rahee Hai - Hazrat Zaheen Shah Taji


Vocalist: Abida Parveen



Vocalist: Kavita Seth



Lyrics: Baba Zaheen Shah Taji

Horih hoye rahi hai
Ahmad jiyo ke dwar
Hazrat Ali ka raang bano hai
Hasan Husain khilar
Aiyso hori ke dhum machi hai
chahun or pari hai pukaar
Aiyso anokho chatur khiladi
raang dinyon sansar
Niaz pyara bhar bhar chidke
ek hi raang sahas pichkar
Hazrat Shah Niaz


Ji chahe to sheesha ban ja, ji chahe paimana ban ja
Sheesha paimana kya banna, mai ban ja maikhana ban ja..


Mai bar kar, maikhana ban kar masti ka afsana ban ja
Masti ka afsana bankar hasti se begaana ban ja


Hasti se bagaana hona masti ka afsana banna
Is hone se is banne se achha hai deewana ban ja


Deewana ban jane se deewana hona achha hai
deewana hone se achha khak e dar e janana ban ja


Khak e dar e janana kya hai ahle dil ki annkh ka surma
Shama ke dil ki thandak ban ja noor e dil e parwana ban ja


Seekh Zaheen ke dil se jalna kahe ko har shamma par jalna
Apni aag mein khud jal jaye tu aisa parwana ban ja

Meaning:

Ji chahe to sheesha ban ja, ji chahe paimana ban ja
Sheesha paimana kya banna, mai ban ja maikhana ban ja..
If you wish, become the glass, or the chalice
But why choose, when you can become the wine and the tavern

Mai ban kar, maikhana ban kar masti ka afsana ban ja
Masti ka afsana bankar hasti se begaana ban ja
By becoming the wine and the tavern, become the tale of intoxication
By becoming the tale of intoxication, become a stranger to life
(interpretation: lose yourself in the lust of devotion)

Hasti se bagaana hona, masti ka afsana banna
Is hone se is banne se achha hai, deewana ban ja
Becoming a tale, becoming a stranger to being,
Better than these, however, is to become a madman.

Deewana ban jane se, deewana hona achha hai
deewana hone se achha, khak e dar e jaanana ban ja
Better than becoming a madman is to be a madman
Better than being a madman is to become dust at the door of a beloved

Khak e dar e jaanana kya hai, ahle dil ki annkh ka surma
Shama ke dil ki thandak ban ja, noor e dil e parwana ban ja
What is dust, but kohl in the eyes of the people of the heart
Become the coolness at the heart of a candle, become the moth illuminating the heart

Seekh Zaheen ke dil se jalna, kahe ko har shamma par jalna
Apni aag mein khud jal jaye, tu aisa parwana ban ja
Learn, Zaheen (Intelligent One), to burn from the heart
Why burn for every flame.
Become that moth that burns in its own fire
