नमामिशमीशान निर्वाण रूपं। विभुं व्यापकं ब्रह्म वेदस्वरूपं॥१॥ 
निजं निर्गुणं निर्किल्पं निरीहं। चिदाकाशमाकाशवासं भजेहं॥२॥
Vibhu moksha personified, Veda incarnate, lord of Ishaan, all pervading, 
Lord and master of all Shiv, I pay my obeisances to you, ever worshiping, 
Situated in self, away from maya, modes of nature and desires prevailing, 
I chant to you Lord - The digambara who the sky as garment is wearing.

निराकारमोंकारमूलं तुरीयं। गिरा ज्ञान गोतीतमीशं गिरीशं॥३॥
करालं महाकाल कालं कृपालं। गुणागार संसारपारं नतोहं॥४॥
The one who is formless, Omkar’s origin, beyond the three gunas being, 
Beyond speech, knowledge and senses, grace bestower, virtues dwelling
The Perfect - causes fear and reverence in heart, Lord of death itself killing, 
Lord of Kailash, beyond this world my obeisances unto you I am paying.

तुषाराद्रि संकाश गौरं गंभीरं। मनोभूत कोटि प्रभा श्री शरीरं॥५॥
स्फुरन्मौलि कल्लोलिनी चारु गंगा। लसद्भालबालेंदु कंठे भुजंगा॥६॥
The one who is fair skinned like the Himanchal and is a serene, calm being,
The one who has beauty and grace of millions of kamdevas ever glowing, 
The one upon whose head resides the sacred Goddess Ganga flowing, 
Upon whose head is the crescent moon and his neck by a snake* adorning.

चलत्कुंडलं भ्रू सुनेत्रं विशालं। प्रसन्नाननं नीलकंठ दयालं॥७॥
मृगाधीशचर्माम्बरं मुण्डमालं। प्रियं शंकरं सर्वनाथं भजामि॥८॥
In his ears striking kundalas* and beautiful eyebrows and eyes having,
Cheerful, blue necked , extremely kind, compassionate, understanding,
Wrapped by lions skin and a garland prepared of skulls he is wearing,
He dearest to all and the Lord of all - his name Shankara I am chanting.

प्रचंडं प्रकृष्टं प्रगल्भं परेशं। अखंडं अजं भानुकोटिप्रकाशं॥९॥
त्रय:शूल निर्मूलनं शूलपाणिं। भजेहं भवानीपतिं भावगम्यं॥१०॥
Rudrarup, best, perfect, eternal, unborn, the one opulence having,
The one with effulgence of a million suns with a trident in hand having, 
The one who uproots the three kinds of griefs, who by love be gaining, 
I chant the name of Bhavani’s husband - Shankar ji - to you I am praying.

कलातीत कल्याण कल्पान्तकारी। सदा सज्जनानन्ददाता पुरारी॥११॥
चिदानंदसंदोह मोहपहारी। प्रसीद प्रसीद प्रभो मन्मथारी॥१२॥
Beyond time, timeless, welfare incarnate, dissolution of creation is causing, 
Enemy of Tripur - the one who pleasure and happines to the good is giving, 
Owner and giver of eternal bliss, who worldly attachment within be removing, 
Kaamdev*’s enemy - Lord bless me - who brings out good by heart churning,

न यावत् उमानाथ पादारविन्दं। भजंतीह लोके परे वा नराणां॥१३॥
न तावत्सुखं शांति सन्तापनाशं। प्रसीद प्रभो सर्वभूताधिवासं॥१४॥
Husband of Paarvati unless humans your lotus feet be worshiping,
Peace and joy in either this world or in heaven can not be achieving,
Till then are not mitigated or lessened in any way their sufferings, 
Lord who resides in the heart of all be pleased with me and my offering.

न जानामि योगं जपं नैव पूजां। नतोहं सदा सर्वदा शंभु तुभ्यं॥१५॥
जरा जन्म दु:खौघ तातप्यमानं। प्रभो पाहि आपन्नमाशीश शंभो॥१६॥
O Shambhu I know not Yoga, nor penance nor worship nor praying,
But I always pay my respect unto you O my Lord do ever be saving,
In the suffering of the cycle of death, birth and old age I am burning,
Lord protect this pained from grief my respects unto you I am paying.

रुद्राष्टकमिदं प्रोक्तं विप्रेण हरतोषये। ये पठन्ति नरा भक्त्या तेषां शम्भुः प्रसीदति॥
The brahmin recited this Ashtak of stuti of lord Rudra for pleasing him.
Who reads and recites with devotion Shiv becomes pleased with him.
