15th Verse of Shri Shiv Tandava Stotram

Verse 15

Poojavasan saniaye dashvaktrageetam

Yah Shambhu poojan param pathati pradoshc,

Tasya sthiran rath gajendra tungamukta,

Lakshmin sadaiva sumukheem prad-dati Shambhuh:||15||

Lord Shankar bestows constant wealth on the person who recites this stotram composed by Ravana, the ruler of Lanka. This hymn of praise is to be chanted at twilight in the evening or at the completion of puja or worship.

Thus ends the Shri Shiv Tandava Stotram written by Ravana.


Chandrashekhar, chandrashekhar, chandrashekar paahimaam

Shaailjavar bhaal lochan chandrashekhar rakshamaam | (To be chanted once.)

Chandrashekhar (an epithet of Shiva, wearing the moon) is the groom of Shailja (a title of Parvati who is mountain born), has lustrous eyes and protects us along with being our guardian.

Paahimaam Rakshamaam (To be chanted seven times.)

The protector and our guardian.
