Shiva Tandava Stotram – Sanskrit Lyrics and Meaning:

जटाटवीगलज्जलप्रवाहपावितस्थले
गलेऽवलम्ब्य लम्बितां भुजङ्गतुङ्गमालिकाम् ।
डमड्डमड्डमड्डमन्निनादवड्डमर्वयं
चकार चण्डताण्डवं तनोतु नः शिवः शिवम् || १ ||

From Lord Shiva’s matted hair flows the holy river, Ganga consecrating His neck,
From His neck hangs the serpent-like a garland,
From His damaru (percussion instrument) comes the damad-damad-damad sound filling the air,
Lord Shiva performs His passionate Tandava dance; may the Lord bless us all!

जटाकटाहसम्भ्रमभ्रमन्निलिम्पनिर्झरी_

As the rows of waves of the sacred Ganga move through Lord Shiva’s matted hair, it glorifies His Head,
The waves of the river flow into the depths of His locks of hair,
A brilliant fire burns on the surface of Lord Shiva’s forehead,
And the crescent moon is a jewel on His Head.
(May we find constant joy in Him!)

Salutations to Lord Shiva, who is the sporting consort of the daughter of the mountain king (Parvati),
In whose mind the universe with all the living beings exist,
Whose all-pervading, compassionate glance removes all hardships,
Who wears the directions as His apparel.
(May my mind find bliss in Him!)

Salutations to Lord Shiva, who shines radiantly because of the luster of the gem on the reddish-brown hood of the creeping serpent,
Kadambha juice-like red vermilion (kumkum) is smeared on the faces of the Goddesses of direction,
Who wears a cloak made of elephant hide,
May I find pleasure in that Lord of Bhoota! (ghosts – meaning the mystical beings guarding Kailasa)

Salutations to Lord Shiva, whose footrest is decorated by the dust from flowers,
Which fall from the heads of all the gods – Indra, Vishnu and others,
Whose matted locks are bound by the snake-garland,

(May Lord Shiva bless us with prosperity!)

Who is revered by the celestial leaders,
Whose forehead is enticing with the gleam and cool rays of the crescent moon,
Shower His blessings on us, so we obtain the wealth of the Siddhis.

Who offered the five arrows (of the God of Love) to the fire,

(May we repose in him!)

Who destroyed Andhaka (his blind son), who destroyed the elephant demon (Gajasura), and the God of Death (Yama).

Salutations to Lord Shiva, who has a fire on His forehead, that is ever-increasing
Because of the breath of the snake wandering in the sky,
Whose Tandava dance is in tune with dhimid-dhimid,
Victory to Lord Shiva!

समप्रवृत्तिकः कदा सदाशिवं भजाम्यहम् || १२ ||

Towards different forms of the world, towards a snake and a garland,
Towards the most precious gem as well as a lump of dirt, and friends and enemies,
Towards a blade of grass or a lotus, towards common people or emperors,
Lord Shiva has an equanimous vision – where can I worship Lord Sadashiva?

कदा निलिम्पनिर्झरीनिकुञ्जकोटरे वसन्
विमुक्तदुर्मतिः सदा शिरःस्थमञ्जलिं वहन् ।
विमुक्तलोललोचनो ललामभाललग्नकः
शिवेति मन्त्रमुच्चरन्कदा सुखी भवाम्यहम् || १३ ||

When can I be happy, living in a cave near the celestial river Ganga,
Clasping my hands together on my head all the time,
Devoted to the Lord with a glorious forehead and with vibrant eyes,
Washing away my impure thoughts with the mantra of Shiva?

इमं हि नित्यमेवमुक्तमुत्तमोत्तमं स्तवं
पठन्स्मरन्ब्रुवन्नरो विशुद्धिमेतिसंततम् ।

Anyone who reads, remembers, and recites this stotram
Is purified forever and immerses in deep devotion to the great Guru Shiva leading to salvation.
There is no other way or refuge,
Just the mere thought of Lord Shiva removes the delusion and detachment.

तस्य स्थिरां रथगजेन्द्रतुरङ्गयुक्तां
लक्ष्मीं सदैव सुमुखीं प्रददाति शम्भुः || १५ ||

One who recites this song composed by Ravana
At the end of a prayer to Lord Shiva early in the morning,
Gets wealth of chariots, elephants, horses.
Lord Shambhu always gives such people prosperity.
