Shiva Panchakshara Stotram
The holy word chant to worship Lord Shiva is made of five letters and is popularly called Panchakshara - "Na Ma Si Va ya". In this popular stotra each of these letters is considered as him and he is praised for his great qualities.
Nagendra haraya Trilochanaya,
Basmanga ragaya maheshwaraya,
Nithyaya shudhaya digambaraya,
Tasmai na karaya namah shivaya.
My salutations to the letter "Na", which is Shiva,
Who wears as garland the king of snakes.
Who has three eyes,
Who wears ash all over Him,
Who is the greatest Lord,
Who is forever,
Who is the cleanest,
And who wears the directions themselves as dress
Mandakini salila chandana charchithaya,
Nandeeshwara pramadha nadha maheshwaraya,
Mandhara mukhya bahu pushpa supoojithaya,
Tasmai ma karaya namah shivaya.
My salutations to the letter "Ma", which is Shiva,
Who is bathed by waters of ganges,
Who applies sandal paste all over him,
Who has Lord Nandi as his chieftain,
Who is the greatest lord,
And who is worshipped by Mandhara and many other flowers.
Shivaaya gowri vadanara vinda,
Sooryaya daksha dwara naashakaya,
Sri neela kantaya vrisha dwajaya,
Tasmai shi karaya namah shivaya.
My salutations to the letter "Shi", which is Shiva,
Who is peace personified,
Who is like Sun to the Lotus face of Gowri,
Who destroyed the fire sacrifice of Daksha,
Who has a blue neck,
And who has a bull in his flag.
Vasishta kumbhodhbhava gowthamadhi.
Munendra devarchitha shekaraya,
Chandrarka vaishwanara lochanaya,
Tasmai va karaya namah shivaya.
My salutations to the letter "Va", which is Shiva,
Who is worshipped by great sages like,
Vasishta, Agasthya and Gowthama ,
As also the devas,
And who has sun , moon and fire as his three eyes.
Yaksha swaroopaya jata dharaya,
Pinaka hasthaya sanathanaya,
Divyaya devaaya digambaraya,
Tasmai yakaraya namah shivaya.
My salutations to the letter "Ya", which is Shiva,
Who takes the form of Yaksha,
Who has a tufted hair,
Who is armed with spear,
Who is forever filled with peace,
Who is godly,
Who is the great God,
And who wears the directions themselves as dress.
Panchakshara midham punyam,
Yah pateth Shiva sannidhou,
Shive na saha modathe.
Those who read these holy five letters great,
In the temple of Shiva,.
Would go to the world of Shiva,
And be forever happy with Him.
Shivam shivakaram shantham
Pranamami sada shivam
Salutations to the ever peaceful Lord Sada Shiva,
Who is the abode of peace,

Who is peaceful,

Who is the acme of peace,
And who shows the path of Shiva.
