शिव पञ्चाक्षर स्तोत्रम् Shiva Panchaakshara Stotrum Pratibha Jani
Maha shivratri is coming up and I thought of adding this beautiful Shiva shlokas to my collection to share with all my member/subscribers. Have a wonderful Mahashivratri everyone. Meditation, Prayers, fasting if possible.
Not a regular common practice for daily prayers but it is followed for special occasions. For taking the kind of shankha it is beneficial to have a shankha that is “dakshin Varti” which means circling towards the south(opening) is best. Any size you can find is fine.
Now take the sankha and dip it in the water of the kalash and take the water into the shankha. take a couple leaves of tulsi if you have , if not then some plain rice or few petals of flower are also fine. Now take this shankha and place it in a copper plate that is called Tarbhaanu.
a stainless steel plate is also ok.
Join your hands in prayer and say the following shloka to bring the shankha as part of the ceremony. Shankha is considered to have born from the ocean so invite Lord Vishnu and Shankha to the special occasion.
