Shiva Nama Malyashtakam

Shiva with the trident

Translated By P. R. Ramachander

The following is a prayer to Lord Shiva by the worshipper praying for liberation from the deep sorrows and suffering of the world, while he extols his excellent qualities.

Hey Chandrachooda, madanaththaka soola pane,
Sthano gireesa, girijeesa, mahesa shambho,
Bhoothesa, bheethi bhaya soodhana mamanadham,
Samsara dukha gahana jagadeesha raksha. 1

Please save me from the deep sorrow of life, Oh Lord of the universe,
Who wears the moon, who killed god of love, who holds the trident,
Who is stable, who is the lord of mountain, who is the consort of Girija,
Who is the greatest god, who is Shambhu, Who is lord of bhoothas,
Who is exterminator of fear and phobia and is my lord.

Hey Parvathi hrudaya vallabha Chandra moule,
Bhoothadhipa pramadhanadha gireesachapa,
Hey Vamadeva bhava Rudra pinakapane,
Samsara dukha gahana Jagadeesha raksha. 2

Please save me from the deep sorrow of life, Oh Lord of the universe,
Who is lord of the heart of Parvathi, Who wears the crescent,
Who is the chief of bhoothas, who is lord of Pramadhas,
Who holds the mountain as his bow, who is the giver of suitable rewards,
Who is the lord who is angry and who holds the bow called Pinaka.

Hey Neelakanda vrushbhadwaja pancha vakthra,
Lokesa seshavalaya pramadhesa sarva,
Hey durjate pasupathe girijapathe maam,
Samsara dukha gahana Jagadeesha raksha. 3

Please save me from the deep sorrow of life, Oh Lord of the universe,
Who has a blue neck, who has bull in his flag, who has five throats,
Who is the lord of the word, who is encircled by a snake,
Who is the chief of Pramadhas, who is Shiva,
Who has unkempt hair, who is the lord of all beings and Lord of Girija.

Hey Viswanatha, shiva shankara deva deva,
Gangadhara pramadhanayaka nandikesa,
Baneswarandhakaripo, hara loka nadha,
Samsara dukha gahana Jagadeesha raksha. 4

Please save me from the deep sorrow of life, Oh Lord of the universe,
Who is lord of universe, who is peaceful, who is Shankara,
Who is god of gods, who carries Ganga, who is the chief of pramadhas,
Who is lord of Nandi, who is the enemy of Baneswara and Andhakasura,
Who is the destroyer and who is lord of the world.

Varanasi purapathe, manikarnikesa,
Veeresa dakshamakhakala vibho ganesa,
Sarvagna sarva hrudayaika nivasa nadha,
Samsara dukha gahana Jagadeesha raksha. 5

Please save me from the deep sorrow of life, Oh Lord of the universe,
Who is the lord of the city of Varanasi, who is the lord of Manikarnika,
Who is the lord of warriors, who destroyed the yaga of Daksha,
Who is the mighty, who is the chief of Bhootha ganas,
Who is all knowing and the Lord who lives in everybody’s mind.

Sriman maheswara krupamaya, hey dayalo,
Hey vyomakesa sithikanda ganathinadha,
Basmanga raga nrukapala kapalamala,
Samsara dukha gahana Jagadeesha raksha. 6

Please save me from the deep sorrow of life, Oh Lord of the universe,
Who is the greatest lord, who is full of mercy, who is kind,
Who has sky as hair, who has blue neck, who is chief of ganas,
Who is coated all over by ash and who wears a garland of skulls.

Kailasa sailavinivasa, vrushakape, hey,
Mruthyunjaya trinayana, trijanan nivasa,
Narayanapriya madhapaha shakthinadha,
Samsara dukha gahana Jagadeesha raksha. 7

Please save me from the deep sorrow of life, Oh Lord of the universe,
Who lives on mount Kailasa, who rides on the bull,
Who has won over death, who has three eyes,
Who lives in all the three worlds, who is the friend of Narayana,
Who destroys pride and who is the consort of Shakthi.

Viswesa viswabhavanajitha viswaroopa,
Viswathmaka tribhuvanaika gunabhivesa,
Hey Viswabandhu karunamaya dheena bandho,
Samsara dukha gahana Jagadeesha raksha. 8

Please save me from the deep sorrow of life, Oh Lord of the universe,
Who is king of universe, who lives in the entire world,
Who cannot be defeated, who is the form of universe,
Who is the soul of universe, who spreads in all three worlds,
Who is the friend of the universe, who is full of mercy and friend of the oppressed.
