(Jyotirling or Jyotirlingam is a shrine where the Lord is worshipped in the form of a Jyotirlingam or Lingam of Light. There are 12 traditional Jyotirlinga shrines in India. It is believed that Shiva first manifested himself as a Jyotirlinga on the night of the Arudra festival, thus the special reverence for the Jyotirlinga. It is believed that a person can see these Lingas as columns of fire piercing through the earth after he reaches a higher level of spiritual attainment. The location of these Lingas of Light is given in another prayer called - Dwadasa Linga Sthavam.

Mudakaraatha Modakam Sada Vimukti Saadhakam Kalaadharaavatamsakam Vilasiloka Rakshakam Anaaya Kaika Naayakam Vinasitebha Daityakam Nataasubhasu Naashakam Namaami Tam Vinaayakam

I prostrate before Lord Vinaayaka who joyously holds modaka in His hand, who bestows salvation, who wears the moon as a crown in His head, who is the sole leader of those who lose themselves in the world. The leader of the leaderless who destroyed the elephant demon called Gajaasura and who quickly destroys the sins of those who bow down to Him, I worship such a Lord Ganesh I meditate eternally on Him, the Lord of the Ganas, who is frightening to those not devoted, who shines like the morning sun, to whom all the Gods and demons bow, who removes the great distress of His devotees and who is the best among the best.

Natetaraati Bheekaram Navoditaarka Bhaasvaram Namat Suraari Nirjaram Nataadhi Kaapa Duddharam Suresvaram Nidheesvaram Gajesvaram Ganeshvaram Mahesvaram Tamaasraye Paraatparam Nirantaram. Samasta Loka Sankaram Nirasta Daitya Kunjaram Daretarodaram Varam Vare Bhavaktra Maksharam Krupaakaram Kshamaakaram Mudaakaram Yasaskaram Manaskaram Namaskrutaam Namaskaromi Bhaasvaram.

I bow down with my whole mind to the shining Ganapati who brings happiness to all the worlds, who destroyed the demon Gajasura, who has a big belly, beautiful elephant face, who is immortal, who gives mercy, forgiveness and happiness to those who bow to Him and who bestows fame and a well disposed mind.

SHRIMANDIR

I worship the ancient elephant God who destroys the pains of the poor, who is the abode of Aum, who is the first son of Lord Shiva (Shiva who is the destroyer of triple cities), who destroys the pride of the enemies of the Gods, who is frightening to look at during the time of world's destruction, who is fierce like an elephant in rut and who wears Dhananjaya and other serpents as his ornaments. I constantly reflect upon that single tusked God only, whose lustrous tusk is very beautiful, who is the son of Lord Shiva, (Shiva, the God of destruction), whose form is immortal and unknowable, who tears asunder all obstacles, and who dwells forever in the hearts of the Yogis. He who recites this every morning with devotion, these five gems about Lord Ganapati and who remembers in his heart the great Ganesha, will soon be endowed with a healthy life free of blemishes, will attain learning, noble sons, a long life that is calm and pleasant and will be endowed with spiritual and material prosperity.

SHIVA CHALISA
Jai Ganesh Girija Suvan Mangal Mul Sujan Kahat Ayodhya Das Tum Devu Abhaya Varadan Glory to Lord Ganesh, the Divine Son of Goddess Girija, the cause of all auspiciousness and intelligence. Ayodha Dass (the composer of these verses) humbly requests that every one be blessed with the boon of being fearless. O Glorious Lord, consort of Parvati You are most merciful . You always bless the poor and pious devotees. Your beautiful form is adorned with the moon on Your forehead and on your ears are earrings of snakes' hood. The holy Ganges flows from your matted hair. The saints and sages are attracted by Your splendid appearance. Around Your neck is a garland of skulls. White ash beautifies Your Divine form and clothing of lion's skin adorns Your body. O Lord, the beloved daughter of Maina on Your left adds to Your splendid appearance. O Wearer of the lion's skin, the Trishul in Your hand destroys all enemies

SHRIMANDIR

Nandi and Shri Ganesh along with Lord Shiva appear as beautiful as two lotuses in the middle of an ocean.Poets and philosophers cannot describe the wonderful appearance of Lord Kartikeya and the dark complexioned Ganas (attendants). O Lord, whenever the Deities humbly sought Your assistance, You kindly and graciously uprooted all their problems. You blessed the Deities with Your generous help when the demon Tarak outraged them and You destroyed him. O Lord, You sent Shadanan without delay and thus destroyed the evil ones Lava and Nimesh. You also destroyed the demon Jalandhara. Your renown is known throughout the world O Lord, Purari, You saved all Deities and mankind by defeating and destroying the demons Tripurasura. You blessed Your devotee Bhagirath and he was able to accomplish his vow after rigorous penance. O Gracious One, devotees always sing Your glory. Even the Vedas are unable to describe Your greatness. No one is as generous as You. Lord, when the ocean was churned and the deadly poison emerged, out of Your deep compassion for all, You drank the poison and saved the world from destruction. Your throat became blue, thus You are known as Nilakantha. When Lord Rama worshipped You, He became victorious over the king of demons, Ravan. When Lord Rama wished to worship Thee with one thousand lotus flowers, the Divine Mother, to test the devotion of Shri Ram, hid all the flowers at Your request. O Lord, You kept on looking at Shri Ram, who wished to offer His lotus-like eyes to worship Thee. When You observed such intense devotion, You were delighted and blessed Him. You granted His heart's desire. Glory be unto You O Gracious, Infinite, Immortal, All-pervading Lord. Evil thoughts torture me and I keep on traveling aimlessly in this world of mundane existence. No relief seems to be coming my way.

SHRIMANDIR

O Lord! I beseech Your help and seek your divine blessing at this very moment. Save and protect me. Destroy my enemies with Your Trishul. Release me from the torture of evil thoughts. O Lord, when I am not in distress, neither my parents, brothers, sisters nor loved ones can relieve my suffering. I depend only on You. You are my hope. Eliminate the cause of this tremendous torture and bless me with Your compassion. O Lord, You bless the down-trodden with prosperity and grant wisdom to the ignorant. Lord, due to my limited knowledge, I omitted to worship Thee. Please forgive me and shower Your grace upon me. O Lord Shankar, You are the destroyer of all miseries. You remove the cause of all obstacles and grant Your devotees eternal bliss. The saints and sages meditate upon Thy most beautiful form. Even celestial beings like Sharad and Narad bow in reverence to You Hail Hail Oh Shiva and Brahma! One who listens to the glory of Shankara will enjoy the removal of his sins for many births. Whoever reads this sthothra will be blessed by Shankara. Devotees who chant these verses with intense love become prosperous by the grace of Lord Shiva. Even the childless wishing to have children, have their desires fulfilled after partaking of Shiva-prasad with faith and devotion. On Trayodashi (13th day of the dark and bright fortnights) one should invite a pundit and devotedly make offerings to Lord Shiva. Those who fast and pray to Lord Shiva on Trayodashi are always healthy and prosperous. Whosoever offers incense, prasad and performs arthi to Lord Shiva, with love and devotion, enjoys material happiness and spiritual bliss and hereafter ascends to the abode of Lord Shiva. Shiva removed the suffering of all and grants them eternal bliss. Lord Shiva will remove all the sorrows from our lives. O Universal Lord, every morning as a rule I recite this Chalisa with devotion. Please bless me so that I may be able to accomplish my material and spiritual desires.

I bow to the supreme Lord who is the formless source .The Self of All, transcending all conditions and states,Beyond speech, understanding and sense perception,Awe-full, but gracious, the ruler of Kailash,Devourer of Death, the immortal abode of all virtues I worship Shankara, whose form is white as the Himalyan snow,Radiant with the beauty of countless Cupids, Whose head sparkles with the Ganga With crescent moon adorning his brow and snakes coiling his neck, The beloved Lord of All,with shimmering pendants hanging from his ears,Beautiful eyebrows and large eyes,Full of Mercy with a cheerful countenance and a blue speck on his throat. I worship Shankara, Bhavanis husband,The fierce, exalted, luminous supreme Lord.Indivisible, unborn and radiant with the glory of a million suns;Who, holding a trident, tears out the root of the three-fold suffering, And who is reached only through Love. You who are without parts, ever blessed,The cause of universal destruction at the end of each round of creation, A source of perpetual delight to the pure of heart,Slayer of the demon, Tripura, consciousness and bliss personified,Dispeller of delusion Have mercy on me, foe of Lust.
