    Adhou karma prasangath kalayathi kalusham,
    Mathru kakshou stithou maam,
    Vin moothra madhye madhye kwadhayathi niratharaam,
    Jaadaro jadhaveda,
    Yadyadwaithathra dukham vythayathi sutharaam,
    Sakyathe kena vakthum,
    Kshandavyo me aparadha shiva Shiva Shambho,
    Sri Mahadeva shambho. 1

    Due to the remnants of Karmic sins,
    I was created inside my mother’s womb,
    And placed between urine, excreta and heat,
    And suffered a lot by the heat and smell.
    And possibly none can describe,
    The sufferings that I underwent there,
    And So Shambho, be pleased to pardon,
    My sins, Oh Mahadeva.

    Baalye dukhathirekaan malalulitha vapu,
    Sthanya pane pipasa,
    Know shakthischenriyebhyo bhaya guna janitha,
    Janthavo maam thudanthi,
    Naana rogaadhi dukhadrudhana paravasa,
    Sankarama na smaraami,
    Kshandavyo me aparadha shiva Shiva Shambho,
    Sri Mahadeva shambho. 2

    Due to lots of sorrow,
    During early childhood, I rolled in dirt,
    And with a dirty body,
    I was interested only in drinking milk from breasts.
    Insects like fly also bit me often.
    Which I was not able to prevent,
    And was also attacked by many illness great,
    And never did I find time to think of thee oh, Lord Parameshwara.
    And so Shambho, be pleased to pardon.
    My sins, Oh Mahadeva.

    Proudoham youanawastho vishasa visha dharai,
    Panchabhir marama sandhou,
    Dhashto nashto viveka sutha dhana yuvathi,
    Swadhasoumye nishanna,
    Saivee Chinthaviheenam mamahya dayamaho,
    Maangarvadhi roodam,
    Kshandhavyo me aparadha shiva shiva shambho,
    Sri Mahadeva shambho. 3

    When I was passing through the period of youth,
    I was bitten by the five snakes of senses,
    In vulnerable spots,
    And hence lost I, my wisdom,
    And began concentrating on pleasures
    Of son, riches and ladies,
    And so did not think of thee Parameshwara,
    And so Shambho, be pleased to pardon.
    My sins, Oh Mahadeva.

    Vaardhakye chendriyaanam vigathi gathi mathi,
    Schadhi daivaadhi thapai.
    Paapai rogair viyogair stwana vasithavapu,
    Proudeeheenam cha dheenam,
    Mithyamohaabilakshair bramathi mama mano,
    Dhoorjader dhyana soonyam,
    Kshandhavyo me aparadha shiva shiva shambho,
    Sri Mahadeva shambho 4

    When I was passing through ripe old age,
    My five senses got weakened,
    My wisdom lost its memory,
    My body got weakened,
    Due to god given sin, sickness and pain never leaving it,
    And my mind started roaming behind,
    Useless passions and desires,
    And so I did not think of thee Parameshwara,
    And so Shambho, be pleased to pardon.
    My sins, Oh Mahadeva.

    No sakyam smartha karma prathipadagahana,
    Pratyavayaka lakhyam,
    Srouthe vartha kadam me dwijakala vihithe,
    Brahma marge mahesa,
    Jnatho dharmo vicharai sravana mana nayo,
    Kim nidhi dyasithavyam,
    Kshandhavyo me aparadha shiva shiva shambho,
    Sri Mahadeva shambho 5


    Unable I am to observe the complex rules of Dharma daily,
    Unable I am to follow the rules of Veda as told by Brahmins,
    Unable I am to know Dharma by listening to Vedas and meditating,
    And so what is the use of daily learning all these.
    And so Shambho, be pleased to pardon.
    My sins, Oh Mahadeva.

    Dhyathwa chithe shivakyam prachurathara dhanam,
    Naiva datham dwijebhyo,
    Havyam thee laksha sakhyair hutha vaha vadane,
    Naarpitham bheeja manthrou,
    No thaptham gaanga there vratha japa niyamair,
    Rudra japyair na vedai,
    Kshandhavyo me aparadha shiva shiva shambho,
    Sri Mahadeva shambho 6

    Never did I give much money to Brahmins,
    With thought in my mind of Lord Shiva,
    Never did I do fire sacrifice,
    Chanting millions of mantras,
    Never did I meditate in the banks of holy Ganga,
    Never did I do penances based on Vedas,
    And never did I chant Rudra,
    And so Shambho, be pleased to pardon.
    My sins, Oh Mahadeva.

    Sthithwa sthane saroje pranava maya marul,
    Kundale sookshma marge,
    Santhe swanthe praleene prakatitha vibhave,
    Jyothi rope parakhye,
    Lingagne brahma vakye sakala thanu gatham
    Sankaram na smarami,
    Kshandhavyo me aparadha shiva shiva shambho,
    Sri Mahadeva shambho 7

    Never did I sit in lonely place,
    Assume the lotus posture,
    And send the Kundalini,
    And the breath which is of the form of pranava,
    Through the micro path,
    To reach the ever shining Para Brahma,
    And never did I calm my mind,
    And meditate on Paramashiva,
    Who transcends the physical body,
    And who is the essence of Vedas,
    And so Shambho, be pleased to pardon.
    My sins, Oh Mahadeva.

    Nagno nissanga shuddha striguna virahitho,
    Dwastha mohandakaro,
    Nasagre nyastha drishtir viditha bhava guno,
    Naiva drushta kadachit,
    Unmathavastha yathwaam vigatha kali malam,
    Sankaram na smaraami,
    Kshandhavyo me aparadha shiva shiva shambho,
    Sri Mahadeva shambho 8

    Never have I concentrated on the tip of my nose,
    And try to personify you,
    Who is naked,
    Who is alone,
    Who is ever pure,
    Who does not have the three qualities,
    And who is capable of dispelling ignorance,
    And so Shambho, be pleased to pardon.
    My sins, Oh Mahadeva.

    Chandroth bhasitha shekhare smarahare,
    Gangadhare Sankare,
    Sarpair bhooshitha karna kanta vivare,
    Nethoththa vaiswanare,
    Danthi thwaikya tha sundarambaradhare,
    Trailokya sare hare,
    Mokshartham kuru chittha vruthi makhila,
    Manyaisthu kim karmmabhi. 9

    Hey Lord, who wears the moon ornamented crown,,
    Who is the enemy of the God of love,
    Who carries Ganga in his head,
    Who gives peace to his devotees,
    Who wears snakes on his neck and ears,
    Who has fire in his eyes,
    Who wears the hide of the elephant,
    And who is the lord of the three worlds,
    Please show me the path of salvation,
    For what is the use of any other path.

    Kim dhaanena dhanena vajee karibhi,
    Prapthena rajyena kim,
    Kim va puthra kalatha mithra pasubhir,
    Dehena gehena kim,
    Jnathwaithat kshana banguram sapadhire,
    Tyajyam mano dooratha,
    Swathmartham guru vakyatho baja baja,
    Sri Paravathi vallabham. 10

    Oh, Mind, What is the use of charity,
    What is the use of riches,
    What is the use of horses,
    By getting a kingdom what is the use,
    What is the use of son, wife, friends and cows,
    What is the use of this house,
    And what is the use of this body,
    For all these can be destroyed in a second,
    And so keep them all away,
    And for the sake of redemption of the soul,
    Meditate on the consort of Parvathi,
    According to the lessons taught by thine teacher.

    Ayur nasyathi pasyatham prathi dinam,
    Yathi kshayam youvanam,
    Prathyayanthi gatha puna na divasaa,
    Kalo jagat bakshaka,
    Lakshmisthoya thanga banga chapala,
    Vidhyuchalam jeevitham,
    Asman maam saranagatham saranadha.
    Twam raksha rakshaa dhunaa. 11

    Hey please hear,
    Daily span of life decreases,
    The youth daily disappears,
    The days that are past do never return,
    Time eats down the earth,
    And Life and wealth are not permanent,
    For they are like the tide and lightning,
    And so my god Parameshwara,
    Forever protect this devotee of thine.

    Shiva Panchakshara stotram


    Translated in to verse by
    P.R.Ramachander
    [​IMG]

    ( Shiva is the destroyer among the trinity and is worshipped as their main deity by millions of Hindus. The holy word chant to worship him is made of five letters and is popularly called Panchakshara- “Na Ma Si Va ya”.
    In this popular stotra each of these letters is considered as him and he is praised for his great qualities.)

    Nagendra haraya Trilochanaya,
    Basmanga ragaya maheswaraya,
    Nithyaya shudhaya digambaraya,
    Tasmai nakaraya namashivaya. 1

    My salutations to the letter “Na” , which is Shiva,
    Who wears as garland the king of snakes.
    Who has three eyes,
    Who wears ash all over Him,
    Who is the greatest Lord,
    Who is forever,
    Who is the cleanest,
    And who wears the directions themselves as dress

    Mandakini salila chandana charchithaya,
    Nandeeswara pramadha nadha maheswaraya,
    Mandra pushpa bahu pushpa supoojithaya,
    Tasmai makaraya namashivaya. 2


    My salutations to the letter “Ma” , which is Shiva,
    Who is bathed by waters of ganges,
    Who applies sandal paste all over him,
    Who has Lord Nandi as his chiefton,
    Who is the greatest lord,
    And who is worshipped by Mandhara and many other flowers.

    Shivaaya gowri vadanara vinda,
    Sooryaya daksha dwara naasakaya,
    Sri neela kantaya vrisha dwajaya,
    Tasmai sikaraya namashivaya. 3


    My salutations to the letter “Si” , which is Shiva,
    Who is peace personified,
    Who is like Sun to the Lotus face of Gowri[FONT=&quot][1][/FONT],
    Who destroyed the fire sacrifice of Daksha[FONT=&quot][2][/FONT],
    Who has a blue neck,
    And who has a bull in his flag.

    Vasishta kumbhodhbhava gowthamadhi.
    Munendra devarchitha shekaraya,
    Chandrarka vaiswanara lochanaya,
    Tasmai vakaraya namashivaya. 4

    My salutations to the letter “Va” , which is Shiva,
    Who is worshipped by great sages like,
    Vasishta, Agasthya and Gowthama ,
    As also the devas,
    And who has sun , moon and fire as his three eyes.

    Yaksha swaroopaya jada dharaya,
    Pinaka hasthathaya sanathanaya,
    Divyaya devaaya digambaraya,
    Tasmai yakaraya namashivaya. 5

    My salutations to the letter “Ya” , which is Shiva,
    Who takes the form of Yaksha,
    Who has a tufted hair,
    Who is armed with spear,
    Who is forever filled with peace,
    Who is godly,
    Who is the great God,
    And who wears the directions themselves as dress.

    Phalasruthi


    Panchaksharamidham punyam,
    Ya padeth Shiva sannidhou,
    Shivaloka maapnothi,
    Shive na saha modathe.

    Those who read these holy five letters great,
    In the temple of Shiva,.
    Would go to the world of Shiva,
    And be forever happy with Him.

    shlokam:

    Divine, Out of the symbol (li~Ngam) that arose out of the quarrel of prime-ness (between braHma and viShNu), Matted hair crested, Keeping the hand on the hip, with the other hands holding deer and protection sign, in the right holding axe, having the braHma and viShnu (who sought) the Transcending feet and crown, as the swan above and boar below, that li~Ngodbhava I meditate.
    purANa of the deity

    li~Ngodbhavar: The Lord appearing from the symbol. (The principle behind linga worship)

    Once before the creation started, a quarrel broke between braHma and viShNu as to who is great. braHma claimed he is as he is the creator of the whole world. viShNu rejected the claim saying the creation would not be useful without his sustenance of the world. The war of words between these two great divines worsened. At that point of time to make them realize the truth there appeared a pillar of fire. It was huge that both of them were astonished to see that. Now as a solution to their debate they wanted to decide who is the greatest by reaching the tip of that pillar. braHma took the form of a haMsa (swan) and went up to reach the top of that pillar, viShNu took the form of a wild pig and went down to reach the bottom of that pillar and it was agreed that whoever sees the either tip would be the greatest.

    That pillar was not any ordinary column of fire, it was the Supreme Itself, the One that is beyond form, color and qualities ! Who knows the start and end of that Supreme !! The two who set out on their strength to explore the endings of It went on and on only to become more and more tired and it was hopeless to find the end of It. viShNu returned realizing that it should be the parashiva which is beyond the limits that can be measured by knowledge, Which has come out of Its Grace to bless them and make them realize the Truth easily. He accepted his failure. braHmA on the other hand, though realizing it is impossible to see the top of the fire column, returned lying that he saw the tip. The lie stood exposed and hence he is not worshipped. Now both of them realizing the greatness of the Supreme worshipped the Lord shiva, the Gracious one, with lots of devotion and sincerity. The Lord out of the grace to bless all the pashus (souls) with a way they could easily understand and worship the Supreme, Which is unexplainable, unexplorable, appeared as a li~Ngam which is a vertical pillar resembling the flame. As it resembles the flame, It is neither a form nor a formless, but is just a symbol of the Supreme jyoti. The Lord later appeared in a form and blessed viShNu and braHma. This Lord is called li~Ngodbhavar.
    This form which came out of the formless Supreme out of Its grace to bless the sincere worship of braHma and viShNu and which is a from but represents the formlessness of the Supreme is considered very holy by the shaivites. The shiva li~Nga (meaning symbol of shiva) is the foremost of all the shaivite worships. As the ash would be closely associated with the fire, Holy Ash is associated with this Fire pillar Lord and sacred for the shaivites.

    <center> shiva lingam - A Glorious Worship

    </center> shiva lingam is the holy symbol of Lord shiva that is considered quite sacred and worshipped with devotion by the devotees. The sanskrit word li.ngam means symbol, so shiva lingam means symbol of shiva. It is considered the foremost sacred symbol for shaivaites and has been worshiped for ages. The purANas like shiva mahA purANam discuss about the superiority of li.nga worship. (1) (The Indus valley excavation is an example for the presence of this worship in olden times.)
    Once the god of creation brahma and the god of protection mahA vishNu entered in an argument on deciding who is greater. When those two great gods were fighting between themselves, the Greatest of all Lord shiva who is formless and transcends everything appeared as a pillar of flame. God told brahma and vishNu that whoever finds the head or the foot of His flame form would be considered greater. brahmA took the form of swan ( ha.msam ) and set out to reach the top of the Fire. vishNu became a wild pig to see the foot of the Fire. Where are the limits for the infinite God ? They could not succeed in spite of their heavy effort. They realized their mistake and the peerless greatness of Lord shiva. The God who can never be reached by ego appears as the form of love to those who surrender to Him. Lord shiva appeared in the form of shiva li.ngam (which is the shape of flame) for their benefit. They worshiped that oldest form of Him and got blessed. The God who came to bless them from the Flame, from the li.ngam is known as li.ngodbhava (2). This incident is depicted in shiva mahA purANam (1) and many other scriptures.
    As the God stood as pillar of flame, the natural adornment for the Lord is Holy Ash. (As ash would be found on the surface of the fire). As the God stood as the Luminat Flame that stood up the shiva sahasranAma hails God as Urdva retas and the shiva aShtottara as hiraNya retas. The hymn that starts nidhana pataye namaH, refers to many similarities of Flame and shivalinga.
    God is formless, attributeless and omnipresent. This state is called arUpa (formless). For the benefit of the pashus, He took the form of shiva li.ngam which is neither form nor formless but is a symbol. This symbol of Him is called arUparUpam (formless form). He took many forms out of His mercy to bless all, which are called rUpams. (2). shaivam worships the God in all these three states. The oldest form that the formless God took namely the shiva li.ngam is called sadAshiva mUrtam and is worshipped in the altar of His abodes (temples). The forms that He later took which are called mAhEshwara mUrtam are worshipped in the outer circles in a temple.
    This shiva li.nga worship is superior because it makes the worship simple because of the form while maintaining the truth that God is not having any definite form. There are a lot more marvelous principles behind the shiva li.nga worship which could be found in detail in standard scriptures.
