In the glory of Lord Shiva, this video brings you a glimpse of Shiva Panchakshara Stotra, also known as Shiva Stotra, beautifully composed by Sri Adi Shankaracharya, enchantingly rendered by revered master Anandmurti Gurumaa, woven with the exquisite arrangement of music. Panchakshara literally means five syllables and here it refers to the sacred syllables, Na-Ma-Shi-Va-Ya, associated with the Shiva mantra Om Namah Shivaya. It has a deeper significance and profound interpretation to it. According to Yoga Vedanta tradition, the human body is made up of five elements and each of these syllables denotes its respective element. ‘Na’ consecrates Prithvi (the earth element), ‘Ma’ represents Jala (the water element), ‘Shi’ energizes Agni (the fire element), ‘Va’ vitalizes Vayu (the air element) and ‘Ya’ energizes Akasha (the space element). Thus chanting this powerful stotra with awareness energizes our bodily systems and bestows the experience of heightened calmness. Listen, chant along, enjoy this soothing stotra and experience the Shiva within!
