Soul The Shiva Mantra: I Honor The Divinity Within Myself

The Shiva Mantra: I Honor The Divinity Within Myself

The Shiva Mantra is one of the most important (and most popular) chants in Hinduism and spirituality.

Used as a prayer, its focus is divine love, grace, gratitude, truth and also joy. It is also a powerful mantra for healing all physical, mental and spiritual ailments.

The mantra is used as a means to call your higher self. Since it is the mantra of Shiva – the destroyer – it is seen as the death of the ego, and a rebirth of the soul.

Who Is Shiva?


Shiva is one of the most important Hindu deities, and the supreme God in Shaivism. He is one of the three gods that form the holy trinity alongside Brahma and Vishnu.

He is the creator, protector, and transformer of the entire universe.

When you think of Hindu deities, Shiva is most likely the first to come to mind. He is depicted as having skin that is covered in ash, giving him either a blue, white or purple complexion.

He has a third eye and a crescent moon on his head. He is known as the one with “matted” hair and is usually portrayed practicing yoga.

What Is The Shiva Mantra?


The Shiva Mantra is one of the simplest mantras you can say.

Om Namah Shivaya

The Shiva Mantra is a panchakshari mantra or a five syllable mantra. In this case, the “Om” is not included and merely precedes the five holy letters, being ‘na, mah, shi, vaa and ya’.

The Shiva Mantra is thousands of years old and is known as the “great redeeming mantra.”
