Shiva Dwadasa Nama Smaranam
[Remembering the Twelve Names of Lord Shiva]
Translated by P. R. Ramachander

[This rare collection of 12 names of Lord Shiva from Skanda Purana was sent to us by Mr. CV Krishna Manoj. He has taken it from a manuscript written in Telugu. My thanks to him.]

The man who reads these twelve names during dawn, noon and dusk,
Even if ungrateful or having killed a cow,
Even if he has killed Brahmins or teacher,
Or it is a lady, child or an achiever,
The lord of devas, The lord of the bull,
Would get rid of all his sins,
And at the end reach the land of Shiva.
