Shiva Lingashtakam Mantra

Shiva Lingashtakam Mantra or Shiv Linga Ashtakam Mantra is a highly revered prayer to Lord Shiva. Shiva Lingashtakam Mantra features eight Stanzas on Shivalinga and it is said that any Shiva devotee who chants the holy octet of the Shiva Lingam with great devotion would in the end get moksha and reach the Shiva Lok (the world of Hindu God Shiva).

And which destroys sorrows of birth.

From the garden of Gods,

Which is the eternal abode,

And which is the ultimate truth.

Yat Pathet Shivasannidhau

Shivalokamavapnoti

Shivena saha modate.

Anyone who chants the holy octet of the Lingam,

In the holy presence of Lord Shiva,

Would in the end reach the world of Shiva,

And keep him company.

My Mama rides a lion
My Dad wears ashes and snakes
My Mama is a warrior
She kills demons in Her play
My Daddy has the power
And He likes Her this way
