Dwadasa Linga Sthavam: Lyrics & Meaning

Lyrics in Sanskrit:

सौराष्ट्रे सोमनाथं च श्रीशैले मल्लिकार्जुनम्।
उज्जयिन्यां महाकालमोङ्कारममलेश्वरम्॥

परल्यां वैद्यनाथं च डाकिन्यां भीमशङ्करम्।
सेतुबन्धे तु रामेशं नागेशं दारुकावने॥

वाराणस्यां तु विश्वेशं त्र्यम्बकं गौतमीतटे।
हिमालये तु केदारं घुश्मेशं च शिवालये॥

एतानि ज्योतिर्लिङ्गानि सायं प्रातः पठेन्नरः।
सप्तजन्मकृतं पापं स्मरणेन विनश्यति॥

एतेशां दर्शनादेव पातकं नैव तिष्ठति।
कर्मक्षयो भवेत्तस्य यस्य तुष्टो महेश्वराः॥:

Lyrics in English:

Saurāṣṭre Somanāthaṃ ca Śrīśaile Mallikārjunam

Ujjayinyāṃ Mahākālam Omkāram Mamleśhwaram


Paralyam Vaidyanāthaṃ cha Ḍākinyāṃ Bhīmaśhaṅkaram
Setubandhe tu Rāmeśaṃ Nāgeśhaṃ Dārukāvane

Vārāṇasyāṃ tu Viśveśaṃ Tryambakaṃ Gautamītaṭe
Himālaye tu Kedāraṃ Ghuśmeśaṃ ca Śivālaye

Etāni jyotirliṅgāni sāyaṃ prātaḥ paṭhennaraḥ
saptajanmakṛtaṃ pāpaṃ smaraṇena vinaśyati

Eteśāṃ darśanādeva pātakaṃ naiva tiṣṭhati
karmakṣayo bhavettasya yasya tuṣṭo maheśvarāḥ

(The 12 Jyotir lingas are)

Somanatha in Sourashtra, Mallikarjuna in Sri Shailam

Mahakala in Ujjain, Omkaram in Amaleshwara

Vaidhyanatha in Parali, Bhimasankara in South

Rameshwara near the bridge in Sethu, Nageswara in Daruka forest

Visweswara in Varnasi, Trayambakeshwara in the shores of Gautami (Godavari)

Kedareshwara in Himalayas, Ghushmesha in Sivalaya.

He who remembers them morning and evening, Would clear sins accumulated in his seven lives

And one's karma gets eliminated as Maheshwara gets satisfied to the worship.
