Prayer for Forgiveness

क्षमा प्रार्थना

करचरणकृतं वाक्कायाजं कर्माजं वा
श्रवणनयनजं वा मानसं वापराधम् ।
विहितमविहितं वा सर्वमेतत्क्ष्मस्व
जय जय करुणाब्दे श्री महादेव शम्भो ॥

kara charaNa kritaM vAkkAyajaM karmajaM vA
SravaNa nayanajaM vA mAnasaM vAparAdham |
vihitama vihitaM vA sarvametatkSamasva
jaya jaya karuNAbde SrI mahAdeva Sambho ||


Whatever faults I may have committed by hand or foot,
In word or deed, with my ears or eyes, mind or body,
Knowingly or unknowingly - forgive me for them all,
Victory unto Thee, O Great Lord Shambhu, the Ocean of Compassion.

~Verse 16, Shiva Aparadha Kshama Stotra
by Adi Shankara Bhagavatpadacharya

|| ॐ नमः शिवाय ||

Nadine,
Please don't think you have committed those mistakes although those were bad omen, God has already forgiven you. Blessed be!

o lord, please forgive me for my shortcomings. i am human. as much as i try to change myself i relapse and make the same mistake time and again. i thought i was doing well and getting far, and then i slipped up. please forgive me and purify me so that i will not relapse but keep going strong. let me never forget your love and always keep me close to you. please forgive me. you are my only refuge. shelter me. om namah shivaya.

Lord Shiva I am weak.

I made you a promise; you upheld your end of the bargain in your infinite kindness, but I failed you.

Please don't punish others in my life for my shortcomings. They deserve better than me.

Since your kindness is as limitless as your power, grant me the benefits of both by forgiving me and lifting me up to where I was before, in your favor.

This I humbly beg you,

Your imperfect servant,

JC

I have committed many sins and mistakes knowingly. I am really sorry for having done those nefarious acts. I genuinely want to change and be a good person. The greatest lord,shiva, I am begging you to forgive me for all the misdeeds I did. Please grant my wish. OM NAMA SHIVAYA!

Hello..I've done a big mistake by being in an early relationship (when I was 17) with someone who loves me so much..we went on for 5 years but I realized late that I never loved him, I did not tell him because I know it will break his heart..He is a very nice guy..But in the end I had to tell him everything..I think I've spoiled his life..I never wanted to hurt him but i did :'( I need forgiveness from god..what I have done is really bad!
