This is an instrumental version of a chant directed to the goddess Shivani. The main instrument is a Mohan Veena, a Hindustani slide guitar. She is the spouse/feminine form of Shiva. She is always present in Shiva, Mahadevi, Parvati and Durga. She is the mother of Ganesha. The chant mentions her as 'Ashtavinshani' (also Ashtavimshani), she who holds within her 28 multiplicities of the divine.

A transliteration of the Sanskrit is:

Om Ashtavinshani Shivani Shagmani
Saha Yogam Bhajantu Me
Yogam Prapadye
Kshemancha Kshemam Prapadye
Yogancha Namo-Aho-Ratrabhyam-Astu
