Seven Names of God

This beautiful prayer-song-chant was composed by Meher Baba. The haunting melody supports the beautiful names of God: HARI – PARAMATMA – ALLAH – AHURAMAZDA – GOD – YEZDAN – HU. Meher Baba said all these names are one and that all religions of the world are like “beads on one string.” In this video we hear Meher Baba’s closest women disciples singing this poignant chant in His Tomb-Shrine from a recording most likely made in the 1980s.

“Just sing out”

In 1927, Baba composed a simple prayer made up of seven names of God: “Hari, Paramatma, Allah, Ahuramazd, God, Yezdan, Hu.” He first had it repeated by the Prem Ashram boys, and later sung by the women Mandali. After Katie Irani retired in 1978 and followed Baba’s order to move to Meherazad, she would wake up in the early hours to pick flowers for Arti and clean the Blue Bus. This is her own tune to the “Seven Names of God” that she sang on some of these sacred mornings.
