Posted on July 20, by venkatraman Sairam friends, My Father is my inspiration for worshiping Lord Shiva from my childhood. Every morning he does Abishekam for a Shiva Lingam in our house with water and regularly visits the near by Shiva temple called Virundheeswarar temple.
In our colony itself they have built Vaidheeswaran temple with Goddess Thaiyalnayagi Amman and now a days my father and his friends are doing Seva in the temple most of their time. In , I used to regularly visit Shiva temples during pradosham and if its a Pradosham that comes on Saturday, its very auspicious. I have read in the sacred book of Saint Shri Padha Sri Vallabha that a devotee who worships Lord Shiva and Partvathi during evenings and especially during the evening of Pradosham that comes on Saturday, their sins will be washed away.
I truly feel very divine in my chest when I go to Shiva temples and also when I listen to his sacred Mantra. I just started from office and my father called up asking me to come to the Siddhi Vinayakar temple in our colony as they had decorated the Goddess and he wanted me to take Pictures.
Before I went to this temple, the goddess came in my dream. I have immense respect on a devotee Mr. Ramachander who does seva by translating various Hindu Mantra and Sloka. I shall post a link to his complete translation of Shiva Sahasranama as below. Please check link. In the Mahabaratha version which I am giving here Yudishtra after hearing the Vishnu Sahasranama from Bheeshma requests him also to teach the thousand names of Lord Shiva.
Bheeshma expresses his inability to the same and requests Lord Krishna to teach it to Yudishtra. Based on this Sri. Later they gave the publishing rights to Ramakrishna Mutt of Madras.
My feeble attempt, to give an English meaning to this Shiva Sahasranama is based on this great book. I have not attempted to give meaning with interpretation as done in the above book. This book gives names of Lord Shiva. While 45 names are repeated twice, 11 are repeated thrice and three names are repeated four times. Readers may observe that different meanings are given to these repetitions. I shall post these Videos of Shiva Sahasranama courtesy of devotees in Youtube.
Try to get Shiva Sahasranama books when you visit any temples or book shops. I shall also post another video available online. Please get one in near by shops. This encourages the singers and musicians. Aum Nama Shivaya.
