I chant Sivapuranam (Namah Shivaya Vaazhga) on Pradosham days without understanding its meaning completely Big smile, studied in Bangalore so cannot fully understand the meaning of the phrases.


I have heard this Padmapadacharya story.  Nice to read it again and also know about the temples you have mentioned.

Dear Rama
Nicely posted with pictures.  Faith is important. I request all the members to view the serial being shown in Vijay TV between 1800 hrs and 1830 hrs from yesterday about Kanchi Mahaperiyava.

 the concept of ardhanari is mesmerizing
by offering prayers to ardhanari 
our punya is doubled

this stotram of ardhanari ashtakam has been penned by shri adi shankara bhagawat padhaal

Champeya gowrardha sareerikayai,
Karpooragourardha sareerikaya,
Dhamillakayai cha jatadaraya,
Nama Shivayai cha namashivaya. 1

My salutations to both Parvathi and Shiva,
To Her whose body shines similar to molten gold,
To Him whose body shines like the burning camphor,
To Her who has a well made up hair,
And to Him who has the matted lock.

Kasthurika kumkuma charchithayai,
Chitha raja puncha vicharchithayai,
Kruthasmarayai vikrutha smaraya,
Nama Shivayai cha namashivaya. 2

My salutations to both Parvathi and Shiva,
To Her whose body is smeared with musk and saffron,
To Him whose body is smeared with ashes of a burning ghat,
To Her whose prettiness radiates love,
And to Him who destroyed the God of love.

Chalath kanath kankana noopurayai,
Padabja Rajatphani noopuraya,
Hemangadhayai bhujagangadhaya,
Nama Shivayai cha namashivaya. 3

My salutations to both Parvathi and Shiva,
To Her who has tinkling pretty anklets,
To Him who has the king of snakes as anklet,
To Her who shines with golden anklets,
And to Him who has snakes as anklets.

Visala nilothphala lochanayai,
Vikasi pangeruha lochanaya,
Samekshanayai vishamekshanaya,
Nama Shivayai cha namashivaya. 4

My salutations to both Parvathi and Shiva,
To Her who has eyes as wide as the blue lotus,
To Him who has eyes as wide as a fully opened lotus,
To Her who has even number of eyes,
And to Him who has odd number of eyes

Mandhara mala kali thalakayai,
Kapalamalnkitha kandharaya,
Divyambarayai cha Digambaraya,
Nama Shivayai cha namashivaya. 5

My salutations to both Parvathi and Shiva,
To Her whose hair is decorated with divine flowers,
To Him who wears a garland of skulls,
To Her who dresses in great silks,
And to Him wearing the eight directions.

Ambhodara syamala kunthalayai,
Thadithprabha thamra jata dharaya,
Gireeswarayai nikhileeswaraya,
Nama Shivayai cha namashivaya. 6

My salutations to both Parvathi and Shiva,
To Her who has black hairs like the swollen cloud,
To Him who has copper matted locks like lightning,
To Her who is the goddess of the mountains,
And to Him who is the Lord of the universe.

Prapancha srushtyun muka lasyakayai,
Samastha samharaka thandavaya,
Jagat jananyai Jagatheka pithre,
Nama Shivayai cha namashivaya. 7

My salutations to both Parvathi and Shiva,
To Her whose dance marks the creation of the world,
To Him whose dance destroys everything,
To Her who is the mother of the universe,
And to Him who is the father of the universe.

Pradeeptha rathnojjwala kundaayai,
Sphuran maha pannaga bhooshanayai,
Shivanvithaayai cha Shivanvithaya,
Nama Shivayai cha namashivaya. 8

My salutations to both Parvathi and Shiva,
To Her with glittering ear rings of gems,
To Him who wears a great serpent as an ornament,
To Her who is divinely merged with Shiva,
And to Him who is divinely merged with Parvathi. 
 


look at the last line
shivanvithaayai cha shivaanvithaaya

what a beauty
you may wonder whats so special in this line
let me explain

in sanskrit
shivaya is referred to male
and shivaayai is referred to female

that is any word which ends with  ae syllable is referred to male
like shiva(e), maheshwara(e), and so on
so shivaaya- to the god

where as any word with ends with aa syllable is referred to female
shivaa, umaa,  and so on
so shivaayai- to the godess
namah shivaayai ( goddess) cha namah shivaaya( god)



shivanvithaayai cha shivaanvithaaya

here we can see two words in each word
shivaan vithaayai( one who has merged with shiva( god) that is shivaa( parvathi)
shivaan vithaaya( one who has merged with shivaa( goddess) that is shiv( lord shiv)

shiv merged with shivaa and shivaa merged with shiv

shivaa within shiv and shiv within shivaa
