The song "Navras" was played over the closing credits of the Matrix trilogy. It is a remix of "Neodämmerung", a song composed by Don Davis, which was played during the climactic battle between Neo and Smith, and was featured in the theatrical trailer. "Navras" is a spectacular combination of orchestral harmony and funky electronica, and highlights the intensity of the final battle, conveying a powerful feeling of glory with it's choral and Hindustani chants.
Navras - a Hindi word which, broken down, means nine ("nava") emotional states ("rasa") that are exhibited during music, drama, and the visual arts, the experience of which bring about a state of transcendental bliss. The nine different states are as follows: Love, Humor, Pathos, Wrath, Heroism, Horror, Disgust, Supernaturalism, Peace
The lyrics from the song "Navras" are taken from the Upanisads, a set of documents written in sanskrit used in the Hindu religion. The lyrics in the chorus are directly from Don Davis' original version.
asato ma sad gamaya
tamaso ma jyotir gamaya
mrtyor mamrtam gamaya
Om shanti shanti shanti
Jnani manasa saha
Buddhis ca na vicestate
Tam ahuh paramam gatim
From delusion lead me to truth
From darkness lead me to light
From death lead me to immortality.
Let there be peace everywhere
When the five senses and the mind are still,
and reason itself rests in silence,
then begins the Path supreme
