Shiva Stotram

Shiva Stotram
Translated by P. R. Ramachander

[Here is a rare prayer addressed to Lord Shiva.]

1. Gowri nadham, Viswa nadham, saranyam,
Bhothaavasam Vasuki kanda bhoosham,
Triksham Panchasyadhi devam, puranam,
Vandhe Sandarananda Sandoha daksham.

Salutations to the God who is diligent in managing Sum total of joy,
Who is consort of Parvathi, Who is lord of the universe, Who likes people who surrender,
Who lives in all beings, who wears snake Vasuki as an ornament over his neck,
Who has three eyes, Who is the god with five faces and is primeval.

2. Yogadheesam, Kamanasam, Karalam,
Ganga sanga klinna moordhana meesam,
Jata jutato parikshiptha bhavam,
Maha Kalam, Chandra phalam Namami

Salutations to the great destroyer, who wears crescent in his forehead,
Who is the God of Yoga, who killed God of love, who is terrible,
Who is the God who carries River Ganga on his head,
And surrounds it with well tied twisted locks of hair.

3. Yo bhoothadhi Panchabhoothai sisrukshu,
Thanmathrathmaa Kala karma swabhavai,
Prahruthyedham prapya jeevathwameeso,
Brahmanande kreedathe tham namami.

Salutations to the God who plays with divine joy,
Who is the one who created beings from the five elements,
And made the changing habits as their rudimentary nature,
And saw to it that they reached all living beings.

4, Sthithou Vishnu sarva jishnu surathma,
Lokaan sadhoon dharma sethuun bibarthi,
Brahmadyamse yo abhimani gunathma,
Shabdhadyangai tham paresam namami.

Staying as Vishnu, who was victorious and was the soul of devas,
You erected the good people as the bridge to Dharma among humans,
And made them a part of Brahma, proud and of good character,
And I salute that divine God who is the part of the sound Om.

5. Yasyajnaya Vaayavo vaanthi loke,
Jwalathyagni savithaa yaathi thapyan,
Sheethamsu Khe tharaka samgrahascha,
Pravarthanthe tham paresam prapahye,

Since by his order The wind blows in this world,
The raging fire and the Sun like wise produce heat,
And the cool moon is in the sky amidst group of stars,
We call him as the divine god of all.

6. Yasya svasaath sarva dhathri darithri,
Devo varashathyambu kala pramathaa,
Merur madhye bhuvanaanaam cha bhartha,
Thameesaanaam Viswaroopam namami,

Due to his breath the earth bears every thing,
The gods produce great rain in that season,
And as He him selves rules the earth from the middle of Meru mountain,
I salute that Gods great mega universal form.
