Champeya gowrardha sareerikayai,

Dhamillakayai cha jatadaraya,
Nama Shivayai cha namashivaya. //1//

Kasthurika kumkuma charchithayai,
Chitha raja puncha vicharchithayai,
Kruthasmarayai vikrutha smaraya,
Nama Shivayai cha namashivaya. //2//

Chalath kanath kankana noopurayai,
Padabja Rajatphani noopuraya,
Hemangadhayai bhujagangadhaya,
Nama Shivayai cha namashivaya. //3//

Visala nilothphala lochanayai,
Vikasi pangeruha lochanaya,
Samekshanayai vishamekshanaya,

Mandhara mala kali thalakayai,
Kapalamalnkitha kandharaya,

Thadithprabha thamra jata dharaya,
Gireeswarayai nikhileeswaraya,

Prapancha srushtyun muka lasyakayai,
Samastha samharaka thandavaya,
Jagat jananyai Jagatheka pithre,
Nama Shivayai cha namashivaya. //7//

Pradeeptha rathnojjwala kundaayai,
Sphuran maha pannaga bhooshanayai,
Shivanvithaayai cha Shivanvithaya,
Nama Shivayai cha namashivaya. //8//
