Sri Shiva Sahasranama Sthothram – Rudrayamala Thanthram – || Uththara Peedika || Lyrics and meanings 1 – 12



|| Jai Sriman Narayana ||












Sri Sadhashiva continues “ Oh! Shanmukha, These are the most significant  sacred names of mine which are highly propitious and most wonderful, it was described at the request of Goddess Gauri, worshiper should be anointed in sacred ashes all over his body,  follow strict austerities and wear Rudraksha, should be seated near the Shivalinga with utmost dedication and devotion, should have controlled mind and perform  veneration of Shivalinga always, in this way worshiper should take refuge at the lotus feet of Lord Shiva, worshiper should recite these sacred names of mine with utmost faith and devotion, virtuous people who conducts veneration at all times would attain liberation from worldly bondage, ultimately liberation from the repeated births, remembrance of  these sacred hymns would provide Salakartham/Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha.  Whoever recites these sacred hymns would attain abundance of auspiciousness, whoever meditates upon me in their hearts at all times would attain liberation from repeated births.   Worshiper anointed in sacred ashes would remain protected as armor of diamond, and recites the sacred hymns with folded hands would remain successful and happy, all his desires would be fulfilled and remain fearless.” 

Hence I shall prostrate before supreme Lord Shiva who eradicates all kinds of fears.

Sri Sutha speaks “ Shanmukha was extremely delighted after listening to the glorious words of Mahadeva, in this way Lord Shambhu pleased Girijasutha/Shanmukha.”



Sri Skandha speaks “ I shall repeatedly prostrate before Lord  Mahadeva and Shambhu/benevolent,  I shall repeatedly prostrate before supreme Lord who is dearest companion of the distressed people, I shall repeatedly prostrate before supreme Lord who is extremely compassionate/ocean of mercy, I shall repeatedly prostrate before Lord Mahesha,  I shall repeatedly prostrate before supreme Lord who is the destroyer of Mahamrithyu, I shall repeatedly prostrate before supreme Lord who is the destroyer of Mahadhukha/greatest miseries and sorrows, I shall repeatedly prostrate before supreme Lord who  eradicates Mahapapa/severe sins, I shall repeatedly prostrate before Lord Mahesha, I shall repeatedly prostrate before supreme Lord who is decked in crescent moon, I shall repeatedly prostrate before supreme Lord who is wielded in powerful trident, I shall repeatedly prostrate before supreme Lord who is always known to me, I shall repeatedly prostrate before Lord Mahesha.  I shall prostrate before supreme Lord  Sadashiva along with his consort Shivaa/Uma, he is  eulogized by Veda and Vendantha, he is extremely compassionate, he dwells in the supreme abode Kailasa, he is Lord Shiva who is gracious, blissful and favourable.”

I shall prostrate before supreme Lord Shiva.
