Sri Shiva Panchanana Sthothram/Shiva Panchamukhi Sthothram || Lyrics & Its meaning


|| Jai Sriman Narayana ||












This is one of the most propitious hymns praising the five faced Lord Shiva and each face  represents specific aspect and has sacred names, these glorious faces are known as Ishana, Tathpurusha, Aghora, Vamadeva and Sadhyojatha respectively,  Ishana faces south-east which represents Lord Sadashiva, Tathpurusha faces east which represents Lord Shiva, Aghora faces south which is  the personification of  destructive form of Lord Rudra  at the time of delusion, Vamadeva faces north which represents the preservation aspect of Lord Maheshwara, and Sadhyojatha faces west which represents the creative aspect of Lord Shiva.  I shall prostrate before unblemished glorious face of Lord Shiva which faces on the west, it has the resemblance to snow, moon and jasmine and it  has the luster of milk, his body is smeared in sacred ash, he has radiant eyes which burnt Lord Manmatha into ashes, he is worshiped by Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Ganas, it flourishes  Rig Veda.  I shall prostrate before the glorious face of Lord Shiva which faces on north,  it relentlessly whispers the syllables of Yajur Veda, he has the complexion of precious yellow metal, he is beautifully adorned in vermilion on the forehead, he has brilliant long glances,  his lips has the resemblance to Bimba fruits, he is too compassionate, he has attractive blue matted hair locks and beautiful smile on face.  I shall prostrate before the glorious face of Lord Shiva which faces on east, it flourishes Samaveda, he holds powerful trident, he is worshiped by Siddha, Suras, Asuras,  and Indra, he has the radiance of precious yellow metal, he has marvelous lips that has the appearance of  copper, his splendid hair locks are decked in crescent moon and serpent.  I shall prostrate before the glorious face of Lord Shiva  who is Lord of Lords, which faces on the south, it flourishes  Atharva Veda, it has the resemblance to dark clouds, bee and dark ink applied on eyes, he has brown eyes which has fleeting look, he has marvelous line of teeth, he is adorned in  splendid ear stud decorated with the gem from the hood of serpent, he has attractive matted hair locks  decked in crescent moon and serpents.  I shall prostrate before the glorious face of Lord Shiva/Ishwara which faces  sky, it is most superior and divine, it excels   the marvelous thirty six principles which is beyond comparison, it is  meditated by the illustrious Yogis,  it is the origin of all sacred syllables including Pranava, and it  has minuscule form.  Whoever recites the above glorious verses eulogizes the splendorous five faces of Lord Shiva on all Pradosha would attain Shivapuri, which is known as supreme abode of Lord Shiva in a magnificent chariot, and will remain blissfully in the association of deities, taking immense pleasure in the various passionate sports in the marvelous garden in the abode of Lord Shiva.
