Shiva Sahasranama II

As was stated in the introduction to the Shiva Sahasranama previously, there are possibly four different and unique sets of Shiva Sahasranama Stotras - two in the Mahabharata (later found repeated in many Puranas with minor variations), one unique set in the Shiva Purana and one unique set in the Rudrayamala Tantra. The previous version posted was that found in the Linga Purana (essentially from the Mahabharata). Today, we have the version from the Shiva Purana. As with the Linga Purana version, in the Shiva Purana, Shiva is eulogized by Vishnu.

There is much to be said about the Shiva Purana text itself, but that will be a forthcoming post, which I anticipate will be entitled "Shiva Purana: Sense and Sensibility."

Aum Namah Shivaya.

could you please give the sanskrit text of this sahasranama

Agnideva said...

Namaste. To provide the Sanskrit text of this sahasranama is a mammoth task which is beyond my capacity at present. You can, however, find Sanskrit texts of three versions of the Shiva Sahasranama online at the following website:

http://sanskrit.safire.com/Sanskrit.html#Sahasranama

The ones you will find there are the versions from the Linga Purana, the Mahabharata and the Rudra Yamala Tantra (later copied into the Shiva Rahasya). The Shiva Purana version is not very popular and not oft-recited.
