SHIVA MAHIMNA STOTRAM

Shiva mahimna stotram Lyrics was created by Pushpadanta. Pushpa Dantha, was a Gandharwaa minstrel in the court of Lord Indra. He was a devotee of Lord Shiva as well as a lover of flowers. He used to steal pretty flowers from the garden of the King Chithra Ratha and offer them to Lord Shiva. As a result, King Chithra Ratha was not able to offer flowers to Lord Shiva himself. He tried to find the thief but was not successful because as a Gandharwa Pushpa dantha was invisible. So the king spread one day Bilwa leaves, which are extremely dear to Shiva, in his garden. Pushpa dantha while trying to steal the flowers trod on the Bilwa leaves and invited Lord Shiva’s wrath and lost all his divine powers. He then composed this very great prayer, pleased Lord Shiva and regained his powers.

The Shiva Mahimna Stotra is very popular among the devotees of Lord Shiva and is considered one of the best among all Stotras (or Stutis) offered to Lord Shiva. This very prayer became well known as the ‘Shiva Mahimna Stotra’. Lord Shiva became pleased by this Stotra, and returned Pushhpadanta’s divine powers.

Shivmahimna Stotra has 43 verses in Sanskrit. For the benefit of all beings this Stotra has been given with the original and English verse translation.

Shiva Mahimna Stotram in English :

Mahimna paaram they parama vidhusho yadhya sadhrushi,
Sthuthir Brahmadheenama api thadavsanna sthwayi gira,
Adhavachya sarva swamathi parinamam avadhi grunan,
Mamapyesha sthothre hara nirapavadha parikara., 1

Atheetha panthanaam thavacha mahimaa vang manasayo
Thadhvya vruthyayam chakitham abhi dathe sruthirapi,
Sa kasya sthothavya kathi vithi guna kasya vishaya,
Padhe thwart vaacheena pathathi na mana kasya na vacha., 2

Madhu sphreetha vacha parama amruthan nirmitha vatha,
Sthava Brahman kim vagapi sura guror vismaya padam,
Mama thwenaam vaanim guna kadhana punyena bhavatha,
Punam eethyrthesmin pura madhana budhir vyavasitha., 3

Thwa aiswaryam yathad jagad udhaya raksha pralaya kruth,
Thrayee vasthu vyastham thisrushu guna bhinnasu thanushu,
Abhavyanam asmin varadha, ramaneeyama ramaneem,
Vihethum vyakroseem mvidhadadha ihaike jadadhiya., 4

Kimeeha kim kaya sa khalu kim upaya sthribhuvanam,
Kimadharo dhatha srujathi kimupadhena ithi cha,
Atharkyaisvarye thwayyan avasara dustho hatha dhiya,
Kutharkkoyam kaam schin mukharayathi mohaya jagatha., 5

Ajanmano lokaa kimayava vanthopi jagatha,
Madhishtantharam kim bhava vidhi ra nadbruthya bhavathi,
Aneeso vaa kuryath bhuvana janane ka parikaro,
Yatho mandhasthwam prathyamara vara samseratha yime., 6

Thrayee sankhyam yoga pasupathi matham vaishnavam ithi,
Prabhinne prasthan paramidhamadha padhyamithi cha,
Rucheenaam vaichithryaadhrujhoo kutila nana padha jhooshwam,

Mahoksha, gadwangam, parasurajinam, bhasma phanina,

Nahi swathamaramam vishaa mruga thrushana bramayathi., 8

Dhruvam, kaschiddsavam sakala maparasthwa dhruvamidham,

Amushya thwad seva Samadhi gatha saram bhujavanam,
Balad kailasepi thwad adhi vasathou vikramayatha,
Alabhya patale apya lasa chalitham angushta sirasi,
Prathishta thwayassed dhruva mupachitho muhyathi khala., 12

Yad rudhim suthramno varada pramochai rapi sathee,
Madaschakre baana parijna vidheya thribhuvana,
Na thachithram thasmin vari vasathari thwacharanayo,
Rna kasya unnathyai bhavathi shirasasthwayya vanathi., 13

Akaanda brahmaanda kshaya chakitha devasura krupa,
Vidheya syaseedhya sthrinayana visham sahruthavatha,
Sakalmasha kande thava na kuruthe na sriyam aaho,

Asidhartha naiva kwachidhapi sa devasura nare,
Nivarthanthe nithyam jagathi jayino yasya visikhaa,
Na pasayan eesa thwam ithara sura sadharana mabhooth,
Smara smarthvyathma nahi vasishta padhya paribhava., 15

Mahee pada aghaadhad vrajathi sahasa samsaya padam,
Padam vishnor brahmyadv bhuja pari gharughna gruha ganam,
Muhoordhyor dhousthyaa yathya nibhrutha jada thaditha thata,
Jagad rakshayai thwam natasi nanu vamaiva vibhutha., 16

Viyad vyapi thara gana gunitha phenodhgama ruchi,

Stotrena kil bisha harena hara priyena,
Kanda sthithena padithena samahithena,
Supreenetho bhavathi bhootha pathir mahesa., 39

Yithyesha vang mayee pooja srimad Sankara padahyoo,
Arpitha thena devesa priytham may sada shiva., 40
