Prabhuṃ praṇanathaṃ vibhuṃ visvanathaṃ jagannatha nathaṃ sadananda bhajam |

Bhavadbhavya bhutesvaraṃ bhutanathaṃ, sivaṃ saṅkaraṃ sambhu misanamiḍe

 

Gaḷe ruṇḍamalaṃ tanau sarpajalaṃ mahakala kalaṃ gaṇesadi palam |

Jaṭajuṭa gaṅgottaraṅgai rvisalaṃ, sivaṃ saṅkaraṃ sambhu misanamiḍe

 

Mudamakaraṃ maṇḍanaṃ maṇḍayantaṃ maha maṇḍalaṃ bhasma bhuṣadharaṃ tam |

Anadiṃ hyaparaṃ maha mohamaraṃ, sivaṃ saṅkaraṃ sambhu misanamiḍe

 

Vaṭadho nivasaṃ mahaṭṭaṭṭahasaṃ mahapapa nasaṃ sada suprakasam |

Girisaṃ gaṇesaṃ suresaṃ mahesaṃ, sivaṃ saṅkaraṃ sambhu misanamiḍe

 

Girindratmaja saṅgṛhitardhadehaṃ girau saṃsthitaṃ sarvadapanna geham |

Parabrahma brahmadibhir-vandyamanaṃ, sivaṃ saṅkaraṃ sambhu misanamiḍe

 

Kapalaṃ trisulaṃ karabhyaṃ dadhanaṃ padambhoja namraya kamaṃ dadanam |

Balivardhamanaṃ suraṇaṃ pradhanaṃ, sivaṃ saṅkaraṃ sambhu misanamiḍe

 

Saraccandra gatraṃ gaṇanandapatraṃ trinetraṃ pavitraṃ dhanesasya mitram |

Aparṇa kaḷatraṃ sada saccaritraṃ, sivaṃ saṅkaraṃ sambhu misanamiḍe

 

Haraṃ sarpaharaṃ cita bhuviharaṃ bhavaṃ vedasaraṃ sada nirvikaraṃ|

Smasane vasantaṃ manojaṃ dahantaṃ, sivaṃ saṅkaraṃ sambhu misanamiḍe
