Lord Shiva as Rudra

Niraakaara monkaara-moolam turiiyam |
Giraa gnaana gotiita miisham giriisham ||
Karaalam mahaa-kaala-kaalam krpaalam |
gunaagaara samsara paaram nato ham ||2||

Tushaa raadri-sankaasellsha-gauram gabhiram |
Manobhuta-koti prabha sri sariram ||
Sphuran mauli-kallolini-charu-ganga ||

Chalatkundalam bhru sunetram visalam |
Prasannaa-nanam nila-kantham dayaalam ||
Mrgadhisa charmaambaram mundamaalam |
Priyam sankaram sarvanaatham bhajaami ||4||

Pracandam prakrstam pragalbham paresham |
Akhandam ajam bhaanukoti-prakaasam ||

Chidaananda-sandoha-mohaapahaari |
Prasida praslda prabho manmathaarih || 6 ||

Na yaavad umaanaatha-paadaaravindam |
Bhajantiha loke parevaa naraanam ||
Na taavat-sukham shaanti-santaapa-naasham |
Praslda prabho sarva bhutaa-dhivaasam || 7 ||

Na janaami yogam japam naiva pujam |
Nato ham sadaa sarvadaa sambhu tubhyam ||

Rudrastakam idam proktam viprena haratosaye |
Ye pathanti nara bhaktya tesam sambhuh prasidati ||
