Sri Shiva Kshadakshara Sthothram – Lyrics and meanings



|| Jai Sriman Narayana ||










I shall prostrate before supreme Lord Shiva who represents Omkara, he has subtle form, he is eulogized and worshiped by Yogis on regular basis, he fulfils all the desire of passionate worshiper, he is the provider of Moksha/liberation from repeated births, he is Omkara.  I shall prostrate before supreme Lord Shiva who represents the sacred syllable ‘Na’kara , he is Devesha who is Lord of Lords, he is worshiped by passionate devotees, he is divine personified worshiped by illustrious Rishis and Sages, and celestial Apsaras and Ganas, I shall prostrate before supreme Lord Shiva who represents the sacred syllable ‘Ma’kara, he is Mahadeva, he is Mahathma/virtuous, he always immerses in extreme penance and meditation, he eradicates severe sins of the worshiper, I shall prostrate before supreme Lord Shiva who represents the sacred syllable ‘Shi’ karam, he is Shiva who symbolizes auspiciousness, he is serene, he is Jagannatha who is the Lord of the Universe and its living beings, he always work for the welfare of the Universe and its living beings, and he is imperishable.  I shall prostrate before supreme Lord Shiva who symbolizes the sacred syllable ‘Va’ karam, he has celestial bull as vehicle, he is adorned in serpent Vasuki as ornament on the neck, Goddess Sri Shakthi on his left/he holds powerful trident on his left, I shall prostrate before supreme Lord Shiva who is all pervading, he is Maheshvara, he is supreme preceptor of the deities, he represents the sacred syllable ‘Ya’karam.  Whoever reads or listens to the Kshadakshara praising the splendor of Lord Shiva in front of the sanctum of Lord Shiva would attain the abode of Lord Shiva and the worshiper would remain in the blissful association of Lord Shiva.
