Shiva Sadakshara Stotram [2]
[Prayer to the six lettered chant of Shiva]
Translated by P. R. Ramachander

[This is the second version of the same stotra given elsewhere and deals with the six lettered prayer addressed to Lord Shiva namely Om Namashivaya.]

Omkara samgnatha samastha veda,
Purana punyagama poojithaya,
ongara roopa Priya darshanaya,
Omkara roopaya nama shivaya. 1

I salute Lord Shiva who is of the form of Om,
Who is worshipped by the letter Om in all Vedas,
Puranas and all the other holy agamas,
And who is seen by his devotees as Om.

Nana jaraa vyadhi vinasanaya,
Nadhaya lokaya jagat hithaya,
Nana kalanjana nidarsanaya,
Thasmai nakaraya nama shivaya. 2

I salute Lord Shiva who is of the form of Na,
Who destroys different diseases of old age,
Who is lord of people, who does good to the world,
And who proves different aspects of arts.

Mathsarya doshanthaka sambhavaya,
Mathu pithu dukha nivaranaya,
Maheswari sookshma varaya nithyam,
Thasmai makaraya namashivaya. 3

I salute Lord Shiva who is of the form of ma,
Who puts an end to evils arising out of competition,
Who solves the sorrow of mother and father,
Who is the micro groom of the great goddess.

Seela vratha Jnana druda vruthaya,
Sheela suvarnaya samuthsukaya,
Seegraya nithyam sura sevithaya,
Thasmai shikaraya namashivaya. 4

I salute Lord Shiva who is of the form of si,
Who is firm in good conduct, penances and wisdom,
Who is of golden character and gives good encouragement,
Who is fast and served by devas daily.

Vamardha vidhyuth prathima prabhaya,
Vacha mana karma vimochanaya,
Vageeswari sookshma varaya nithyam,
Thasmai vakaraya namashivaya. 5

I salute Lord Shiva who is of the form of va,
Whose left half is the electrifying pretty splendour,
Who gives freedom from words, mind and action,
And who is daily worshipped by Goddess Saraswathi.

Yaksho ragendradhi sura vruthaya,
Yakshangana janma vilochanaya,
Yaksheshu lokeshu jagath hithaya,
Thasmai yakaraya namashivaya. 6

I salute Lord Shiva who is of the form of ya,
Who s worshipped by yakshas and devas,
Who gave salvation to the yaksha lady,
Who takes care of the yaksha people and all people of earth.

Uthphulla neeloth pala lochanayai,
Krusanu chandraka vilochanaya,
Nireeswarayai nikhileswaraya,
Namashivayai cha namashivaya. 7

She with a eye like a fully opened lotus,
He with eyes of moon, sun and fire,
She who does not have any God above her,
He who is the God for all the universe
Salutations to her who is the consort of Shiva,
Salutations to the God Shiva.
