Significance of Learning Shiva Panchakshara Stotram online with Vedicology
Panchakshara Mantra is from , Shri Rudram Chamakam, which is the second oldest of Vedic texts, the Yajurveda. Each verse of the stotram begins with the five sacred syllables
‘Na’- Nagendra (one who wears a garland of snakes),
‘Ma’- Mandakini Salila (one who is bathed by the water of the Ganges),
‘Shi’- Shivaya (the supreme Lord),
‘Va’- Vashishta (one who is praised by the sages like Vashishta) and
‘Ya’- Yaksha (one who takes the form of Yaksha).
The Panchakshari mantra can also be called Saranagati mantra. Saranagati means surrender. We must surrender to the Lord’s law, i.e. The universal ‘laws of dharma and karma’. When we chant “Namashivaya”, we give in to the law of karma. This means that all events in our lives will be according to the law of karma. We must accept our ‘Karma Phalam’, or the result of our actions, without exception. Many events in our lives can be considered Shiva Prasadam. There must be equanimity without Dwesha( Hatred, Aversion), or Raga (liking and attachment) towards any outcome. All things in life are to be welcomed. and accepted.
When a Sadhak invokes the Mantra while meditation, it is as if he is playing Tabla with musical beats on each Chakra. He starts at Muladhara with the note of “Na”, and then he moves to Swadisthana using the note of “Ma”. As he pronounces “Shi”, he enters Manipur, and then he makes the sound “Vaya” at Anahata. The whole pattern looks like a series of percussion notes from Mridang (a musical instrument).
This mantra can be chanted to sanctify our actions and behaviours, and infuse positive energy. It elevates the consciousness, activates the chakras ( energy centres) in our bodies , the auric field, and stimulates higher levels of consciousness.
Sages believe that chanting these sacred syllables can be sound therapy for the body,mind, and nectar for the soul.
