‘Namah Parvati’ is the final track on George Harrison’s Brainwashed album.

Namah parvati pataye hara hara mahadev
Shiva Shiva shankara mahadeva
Hara hara hara mahadev
Shiva Shiva hankara mahadeva

It is a traditional Sanskrit prayer, chanted by Harrison with a harmonium and tabla backing. The lyrics translate as:

Surrender to Shiva, Parvathi’s Lord
Shiva is the destroyer of ignorance
The Great Lord
The Eternal Lord

The track segues from the song ‘Brainwashed’ at the close of the album.
