    I pray You, Śiva, Śańkara, Śambhu, Who is
    the Lord, Who is the Lord of our lives, Who is Vibhu, Who is the Lord of the
    world, Who is the Lord of Viṣṇu (Jagannātha), Who is always
    dwelling in happiness, Who imparts light or shine to everything, Who is the Lord
    of living beings, Who is the Lord of ghosts, and Who is the Lord of
    everyone.||1||

    I pray You, Śiva, Śańkara, Śambhu, Who
    has a garland of skull around the neck, Who has a net of snakes
    around His body, Who is the destroyer of the immense-destroyer Kāla, Who is
    the lord of Gaṇeśa, Whose matted-hair are spread-out by the presence
    of the waves of Gańgā falling on His head, and Who is the Lord of
    everyone.||2||

    I pray You, Śiva, Śańkara, Śambhu, Who
    scatters happiness [in the world], Who is ornating the universe, Who is the
    immense universe Himself, Who is possessing the adornment of ashes, Who is
    without a beginning, Who is without a measure, Who removes the greatest
    attachments, and Who is the Lord of everyone.||3||

    I pray You, Śiva, Śańkara, Śambhu, Who
    resides below a Vaṭa (Banyan) tree, Who possesses an immense
    laughter, Who destroys the greatest sins, Who is always resplendent, Who
    is the Lord of Himālaya, various tormentor-groups (Gaṇa) and the
    demi-gods, Who is the great Lord, and Who is the Lord of everyone.||4||

    I pray You, Śiva, Śańkara, Śambhu, Who
    shares half of His body with the daughter of Himālaya,
    Who is situated in a mountain (Kailāsa), Who is always a resort for the
    depressed, Who is the Ātman, Who is reverred by (or Who is worthy of
    reverence by) Brahma and others, and Who is the Lord of everyone.||5||

    I pray You, Śiva, Śańkara, Śambhu, Who
    holds a skull and a trident in the hands, Who endows the desires of those who
    are humble to His lotus-feet, Who uses an Ox as a vehicle,
    Who is supreme and above various demi-gods, and Who is the Lord of
    everyone.||6||

    I pray You, Śiva, Śańkara, Śambhu, Who
    has a face like the Winter-moon, Who is the subject of happiness
    of Gaṇa (tormentor groups), Who has three eyes, Who is pure, Who is the friend
    of Kubera (controller of wealth), Who is the consort of Aparṇā
    (Pārvatī), Who has eternal characteristics, and Who is the Lord of
    everyone.||7||

    I pray You, Śiva, Śańkara, Śambhu, Who
    is known as Hara, Who has a garland of snakes, Who roams around the cremation
    grounds, Who is the universe, Who is the summary of the Veda (or the One discussed
    by Veda), Who is always dispassionate, Who is living in the cremation grounds,
    Who is burning desires born in the mind, and Who is the Lord of
    everyone.||8||

    Those who study this prayer every morning with effulgence
    and emotions for Trident-holding Śiva, achieve Mokṣa, after having
    attained a dutiful son, wealth, friends, wife, and a colorful life.||9||
