Morning prayer to Shiva

From Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia

Translated by P. R. Ramachander

Shiva is one of the Trimurthies in charge of destruction. He lives on Mount Kailasa and wears an elephants skin as shawl and the crescent moon on his head. He is the abode of peace and rides on Nandi the bull.

Shivam shivakaram, shantham shivathmanam, Shivothamam,
Shivamarga pranetharam, pranamai sada shivam.

Salutations to the ever peaceful Lord Sada Shiva,
Who is the abode of peace,
Who makes peace,
Who is peaceful,
Who is the soul of peace,
Who is the acme of peace,
And who shows the path of Shiva.
