Shiva Panchakshara Stotram Lyrics - Shiva Panchakshari Mantra Lyrics
Nagendra haraya Trilochanaya,
Basmanga ragaya maheswaraya,
Nithyaya shudhaya digambaraya,
Tasmai 'Na' karaya namashivaya.
Mandakini salila chandana charchithaya,
Nandeeswara pramadha nadha maheswaraya,
Mandra pushpa bahu pushpa supoojithaya,
Tasmai 'Ma' karaya namashivaya.
Shivaaya gowri vadanara vinda,
Sooryaya daksha dwara naasakaya,
Sri neela kantaya vrisha dwajaya,
Tasmai 'Si' karaya namashivaya.
Vasishta kumbhodhbhava gowthamadhi.
Munendra devarchitha shekaraya,
Chandrarka vaiswanara lochanaya,
Tasmai 'Va' karaya namashivaya.
Yaksha swaroopaya jada dharaya,
Pinaka hasthathaya sanathanaya,
Divyaya devaaya digambaraya,
Tasmai 'Ya' karaya namashivaya.
Ya padeth Shiva sannidhou,
Shive na saha modathe.
