Shiva Sadhana

Shiva Sadhana can be roughly defined as the worship of Lord Shiva, one of the three primary deities of Hinduism. Regarded as both the destroyer and the creator of the Universe, Lord Shiva is the ultimate ascetic. Chanting his mantras and reciting prayers in dedication to Him is seen as the way to gain spiritual enlightenment, along with improvements in almost every sphere of life.

The Mantras

The most popular mantra for Shiva Sadhana is “Om Namah Shivaay”. The recitation of this mantra is known to help man in facing fears and in time, completely eliminating them, especially the fear of death. The mantra is also effective against various forms of diseases and illnesses, and promotes overall success and well-being.

“Om Namo Bhagwate Rudraay” is another powerful mantra that is recited to gain blessings from Lord Shiva. The Rudra Mantra as it is called, is effective in fulfilling one’s wishes.
