Śivaprātaḥsmaraṇastotram

At morning, I remember Gaṅgādhara Śiva, Who absolves the fear of metempsychosis, Who rules over demi-gods, Who has a bull as vehicle, Who is the consort of Ambikā (Pārvatī), Who has a club, a spear, boon and Abhayamudrā in His hands, Who is Īśvara, Who is the medicine for the disease like metempsychosis, and Who is unique.[1]

At morning, I salute Giriśa, Whose half-body is adorned by Girijā (Pārvatī), Who is the cause behind creation, maintenance and destruction, Who is the primordial noble One, Who rules over the world, Who conquered the world by His charm, Who is the medicine for the disease like metempsychosis, and Who is unique.[2]

At morning, I adore Śiva, Who is unique, Who is immeasurable, Who is the primordial cause, Who is propagated by Vedānta (Upaniṣat), Who is faultless, Who is the greatest Puruṣa,1 Who is free from differences due to name etc., Who is free from six emotions and their derivatives, Who is the medicine for the disease like metempsychosis, and Who is unique.[3]

Footnotes:

1 Literally puruṣa means male. For contextual meaning, see Kaṭhopaniṣat for the description of Puruṣa.
