Lord Shiva Stotram – Totakaashtakam Stotram Lyrics in Hindi
विदिताखिल शास्त्र सुधा जलधे
महितोपनिषत्-कथितार्थ निधे ।
हृदये कलये विमलं चरणं
भव शङ्कर देशिक मे शरणम् ॥ 1 ॥

करुणा वरुणालय पालय मां
भवसागर दुःख विदून हृदम् ।
रचयाखिल दर्शन तत्त्वविदं
भव शङ्कर देशिक मे शरणम् ॥ 2 ॥

भवता जनता सुहिता भविता
निजबोध विचारण चारुमते ।
कलयेश्वर जीव विवेक विदं
भव शङ्कर देशिक मे शरणम् ॥ 3 ॥

भव एव भवानिति मे नितरां
समजायत चेतसि कौतुकिता ।
मम वारय मोह महाजलधिं
भव शङ्कर देशिक मे शरणम् ॥ 4 ॥

सुकृते‌உधिकृते बहुधा भवतो
भविता समदर्शन लालसता ।
अति दीनमिमं परिपालय मां
भव शङ्कर देशिक मे शरणम् ॥ 5 ॥

जगतीमवितुं कलिताकृतयो
विचरन्ति महामाह सच्छलतः ।
अहिमांशुरिवात्र विभासि गुरो
भव शङ्कर देशिक मे शरणम् ॥ 6 ॥

गुरुपुङ्गव पुङ्गवकेतन ते
समतामयतां न हि को‌உपि सुधीः ।
शरणागत वत्सल तत्त्वनिधे
भव शङ्कर देशिक मे शरणम् ॥ 7 ॥

विदिता न मया विशदैक कला
न च किञ्चन काञ्चनमस्ति गुरो ।
दृतमेव विधेहि कृपां सहजां
भव शङ्कर देशिक मे शरणम् ॥ 8 ॥

Lord Shiva Stotram – Totakaashtakam Stotram Meaning
O Thou, the knower of all the milk-Ocean of Scriptures! The expounder of the topics of the great Upanisadic treasure-trove! On Thy faultless feet I meditate in my heart,
Be Thou my refuge O Master, Sankara!

O the Ocean of compassion! Save me whose heart is tormented by the misery of the sea of birth! Make me understand the truths of all the schools of philosophy!
Be Thou my refuge, O Master, Sañkara.

By thee the masses have been made happy, O Thou who hast a noble intellect, skilled in the inquiry into self-knowledge! Enable me to understand the wisdom relating to God and the soul.
Be Thou my refuge, O master, Sañkara.

Knowing that Thou art verily the Supreme Lord, there arises overwhelming bliss in my heart. Protect me from the vast ocean of delusion.
Be Thou my refuge, O Master, Sankara.

Desire for the insight into unity through Thee will spring only when virtuous deeds are performed in abundance and in various directions. Protect this extremely helpless person.
Be Thou my refuge, O Master, Sañkara.

O Teacher! For saving the world the great assume various forms and wander in disguise. Of them, Thou shinest like the Sun.
Be Thou my refuge, O Master, Sañkara.

O the best of Teachers! The Supreme Lord having the bull as banner! None of the wise is equal to Thee! Thou who art compassionate to those who have taken refuge! The Treasure-trove of truth!
Be Thou my refuge, O Master Sankara.

Not even a single branch of knowledge has been understood by me correctly. Not even the least wealth do I possess, O Teacher. Bestow on me quickly Thy natural grace.
Be thou my refuge, O Master Sañkara.
