Tumhi Ho Mata, Pita Tumhi Ho



A simple prayer in Sanskrit, which is from the Shri Vishwanatha Suprabhata (Morning Salutations to Shiva):



tvameva mAtA cha pitA tvameva tvameva bandhushcha sakhA tvameva
tvameva vidyA draviNaM tvameva tvameva sarvaM mama devadeva


Thou alone art mother and father to me
Thou alone art kin and friend to me
Thou alone art knowledge and wealth to me
Thou art my all, my Lord of Lords.

A song in Hindi based on this Sanskrit sloka (verse) was sung by Lata Mangeshkar for the film Main Chup Rahungi (1962), Tumhi Ho Mata, Pita Tumhi Ho. The lyrics were by Rajendra Krishan, and the music composed by Chitragupta.

Tumhi ho Mata, Pita Tumhi ho
Tumhi ho bandhu, sakha Tumhi ho

Tumhi ho sathi, Tumhi sahare
Koyee na apna siva Tumhare
Tumhi ho naiya Tumhi khavaiya
Tumhi ho bandhu sakha Tumhi ho

Jo khil sake na woh phool ham hain
Tumhare charano ki dhool ham hain
Daya ki drishti sada hi rakhna
Tumhi ho bandhu sakha Tumhi ho

Tumhi ho Mata, Pita Tumhi ho
Tumhi ho bandhu, sakha Tumhi ho.
