Hey guys! I’m sure you’re all aware of all of the amazing artists within our FFXIV tumblr community, but you may not be aware that some of us sell our work on redbubble and similar sites!

I recently bought a few FFXIV stickers to decorate my laptop with and thought it’d be a great opportunity to show off what we have to offer! You can get all of these and SO MANY MORE over on redbubble, plus on different products like tees, mugs, bags, notebooks, etc!

Here are the links to what’s featured above, plus a video to watch me decorate my laptop :)

Shiva Panchakshara Stotram.

The famous Shiva Panchakshara Stotram praises Lord Shiva and the power of His five sacred syllabled mantra, na-ma-shi-va-ya. The prayer was composed by Sri Adi-Sankaracharya, it’s a beautiful example of Sanskrit poetry and word-play, and a powerful hymn. I’ve used the translation available from the Isha Foundation as it was the best I could find, unfortunately no English translation does the hymn justice but I hope you find it enjoyable.

नागेन्द्रहाराय त्रिलोचनाय
भस्माङ्गरागाय महेश्वराय ।
नित्याय शुद्धाय दिगम्बराय
तस्मै नकाराय नमः शिवाय
He who has the king of snakes as his garland and who has three eyes,
He whose body is smeared with sacred ashes and who is the great Lord,
He who is eternal, who is ever pure with the four directions as his clothes,
Salutations to that Shiva, who is represented by the syllable “na”

मन्दाकिनीसलिलचन्दनचर्चिताय
नन्दीश्वरप्रमथनाथमहेश्वराय ।
मन्दारपुष्पबहुपुष्पसुपूजिताय
तस्मै मकाराय नमः शिवाय
He who is worshipped with water from the Mandakini river and smeared with sandal paste,
He who is the lord of Nandi and of the ghosts and goblins, the great Lord,
He who is worshipped with Mandara and many other flowers,
Salutations to that Shiva, who is represented by the syllable “ma”

शिवाय गौरीवदनाब्जबृंदा
दक्षाध्वरनाशकाय ।
श्रीनीलकण्ठाय वृषध्वजाय
तस्मै शिकाराय नमः शिवाय
He who is auspicious and who is like the newly risen sun causing the lotus-face of Gauri to blossom,
He who is the destroyer of the sacrifice of Daksha,
He who has a blue throat and has a bull as his emblem,
Salutations to that Shiva, who is represented by the syllable “shi”

वशिष्ठकुम्भोद्भवगौतमार्यमूनीन्द्रदेवार्च¬ितशेखराय ।
चन्द्रार्कवैश्वानरलोचनाय
तस्मै वकाराय नमः शिवाय
He who is worshipped by the best and most respected sages – Vasishtha, Agastya and Gautama, and also by the gods, and who is the crown of the universe,
He who has the moon, sun and fire as his three eyes,
Salutations to that Shiva, who is represented by the syllable “va"

यज्ञस्वरूपाय जटाधराय
पिनाकहस्ताय सनातनाय ।
दिव्याय देवाय दिगम्बराय
तस्मै यकाराय नमः शिवाय
He who is the embodiment of yagna (sacrifice) and who has matted locks,
He who has the trident in his hand and who is eternal,
He who is divine, who is the shining one and who has the four directions as his clothes,
Salutations to that Shiva, who is represented by the syllable “ya”

पञ्चाक्षरमिदं पुण्यं यः पठेच्छिवसंनिधौ ।
शिवलोकमावाप्नोति शिवेन सह मोदते
He who recites this Panchakshara near Shiva,
Will attain the abode of Shiva and enjoy bliss.
