Lyrics of Nirvana shatakam with translation.....         Shivoham !       Shivoham !
1. Mano BuddhyA-hankara ChittaNi naaham
Nacha Shrotra Jihve Na Cha Ghrana Netre
Nacha Vyoma Bhoomir Na Tejo Na Vayuh
Chidananda Rupah Shivoham Shivoham
I am not mind, intellect, ego and the memory.
I am not the sense of organs(ears, tongue, nose, eyes and skin).
I am not the five elements ( sky or ether, earth,
light or fire, the wind and the water).
I am supreme bliss and pure consciousness, I am Shiva,
I am all auspiciousness, I am Shiva.
2. Na Cha Prana Sangyo Na Vai Pancha Vayu
Na Vaa Sapta dhatur Na Vaa Pancha Koshah
Na Vak Pani Padam Na Chopastha Payu
Chidananda Rupah Shivoham Shivoham
I am not Prana ( energy) nor five vital airs (PanchVayu),
nor the seven essential material( sapta dhatu ) ,
nor the five sheaths of the body ( pancha kosha ).
I am not the organ of speech, nor hand nor the leg,
nor the organs of procreation or the elimination ( anus).
I am supreme bliss and pure consciousness, I am Shiva,
I am all auspiciousness, I am Shiva.
3. Na Me Dvesha Ragau Na Me Lobha Mohau
Mado Naiva Me Naiva Maatsarya Bhavah
Na Dharmo Na Chartho Na Kamo Na Mokshah
Chidananda Rupah Shivoham Shivoham
I have no hatred or dislike, neither greed nor liking,
no delusion,
I have no pride or haughtiness, nor jealousy.
I have no duty to perform(dharma),
no desire for any wealth or pleasure(kama)
, I have no liberation ( moksha) either.
I am supreme bliss and pure consciousness, I am Shiva,
I am all auspiciousness, I am Shiva.
4. Na Punyam Na Papam Na Saukhyam Na Dukham
Na Mantro Na Teertham Na Veda Na Yajnaha
Aham Bhojanam Naiva Bhojyam Na Bhokta
Chidananda Rupah Shivoham Shivoham
I have neither virtue, nor vice.
nor pleasure or pain,
I do not need mantras(sacred chants), nor pilgrimages.
nor scriptures (Vedas), rituals or sacrifices (yajnas).
I am neither the enjoyed nor the enjoyer,
nor enjoyment.
I am the supreme auspiciousness of the form of consciousness-bliss(chidananda Rupah). I am the auspiciousness
I am supreme bliss and pure consciousness, I am Shiva,
I am all auspiciousness, I am Shiva.
5. Na Me Mrityu Shanka Na Me Jati Bhedah
Pita Naiva Me Naiva Mata Na Janma
Na Bandhur Na Mitram Gurur Naiva Shishyah
Chidananda Rupah Shivoham Shivoham
I have no fear of death, nor do I have death. No doubt about my existence, nor distinction of caste. I have no father or mother, I have no birth.
I have no relatives, nor friend, nor the guru, nor the disciple.
I am pure knowledge and supreme bliss, I am Shiva,
I am all auspiciousness, I am Shiva.
6. Aham Nirvikalpo Nirakaara Roopah
Vibhur Vyapya Sarvatra Sarvendriyanaam
Sada Me Samatvam Na Mukthir Na Bandhah
Chidananda Rupah Shivoham Shivoham
I am formless and devoid of all dualities
I exist everywhere and pervade all senses
Always I am the same,
I am neither free nor bonded
I am pure knowledge and supreme bliss, I am Shiva,
I am all auspiciousness, I am Shiva.
