Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara !!












This is one of the sacred hymns praising the five faced Lord Shiva and each faces represent specific aspect and has a name, these glorious faces are known as Isana, Tatpurusha, Aghora, Vamadeva and Sadhyojatha respectively.   Isana faces south-east which represents Lord Sadashiva, Tatpurusha faces east which represent Lord Shiva, Aghora faces south which represent the destructive form of Lord Rudra at the time of delusion, Vamadeva faces north which represent the preservation aspect of Lord Maheshwara, and Sadyojatha faces west which represent the creative aspect of Lord Shiva.


My humble salutation to the unblemished glorious face of Lord Shiva which faces on the Paschimam/ West, who has the resemblance to snow, moon and jasmine and has the luster of milk, whose body is smeared in sacred ash, he has radiant eyes which burnt Lord Manmatha, he is worshipped by Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Ganas, whose impact augments the Rig Veda.


My humble salutation to the glorious face of Lord Shiva which faces on the Uthara/ North, relentlessly whisper the syllables of Yajur Veda, he is white in complexion, adorned kumkum on the forehead, radiant with long glances, lips has the resemblance to Bimba fruits of red in color, he is compassionate and attractive with blue matted hair locks and splendid smile.


My humble salutation to the glorious face of Lord Shiva which faces on Poorvam/East, it has the impact to augment the Samaveda, who holds trident and worshipped by Siddha, Suras, Asuras, Indra, he has the radiance of unblemished gold, he has marvelous lips with the color of Thamram/copper, his splendid hair locks decked with the crescent moon and serpent.


My humble salutation to the glorious face of Lord Shiva /Lord of Lords, which faces on the Dakshinam/South, has the impact to augment the Atharva Veda, who has the resemblance to dark clouds, bee and collyrium, he has brown eyes that gives fleeting look, visible teeth, marvelous ear stud made out of the gem from the hood of serpent, whose matted hair locks are decked with crescent moon and serpents.


My humble salutation to the glorious face of Lord Shiva/Ishwara, which faces to the sky/Urdhvam, most superior and divine, greater than the thirty six principles, impossible to distinguish, which is meditate upon by the Yogis, origin of all sacred syllables including Omkasharam, it is smaller among the smallest.


Whoever recites the glorious verses eulogizes the magnificent five faces of Lord Shiva on all Pradosha would attain Shivapuri/abode of Lord Shiva in a magnificent chariot, and would remain in the association of the Suras in the marvelous garden in the abode of Lord Shiva.
