Tasmey Makaara Mahitaaya NamashShivaaya ||


I bow to Him,
embodied as Makara,
who is adorned with innumberable divine flowers
as Mandara and the like,
who is the Sovereign King of the Pramatha Ganas,
and whose body is annointed with
the holy waters of the celestial Ganga.

Tasmey Shikaaraaya NamashShivaaya ||

 

To the blue-necked Lord
embodied as the letter 'Si',

whose banner bears the emblem of a bull,
may our salutations be!

Tasmey Vakaaraaya NamashShivaaya ||


I prostrate before the God of gods,

and the great sages like Vashista, Agastya and Gautama,
ever pray and worship.

Pinaakahastaaya Sanaatanaaya ||

Divyaaya Devaaya Digambaraaya |

Tasmey Yakaraaya NamashShivaaya ||

 

Prostrations to the ancient, naked God,
embodied as the letter 'Ya',
the Yaksha incarnate,
whose hairs are long and matted,
and who holds Pinaka in his hands.

Shivalokamavaanpoti Shivena Saha Modate ||


Whoever repeats this prayer,
composed with the five holy letters,
before Lord Shiva,
attains that supreme abode of His
and enjoys there with Him in eternal bliss.
