Shiva Dwadasa Nama Smaranam
[Remembering the Twelve Names of Lord Shiva]
Translated by P. R. Ramachander

[This rare collection of 12 names of Lord Shiva from Skanda Purana was sent to us by Mr. CV Krishna Manoj. He has taken it from a manuscript written in Telugu. My thanks to him.]

Fourth, the one who has bull in his flag,
Fifth, the one who wears animal hide
Sixth, the one who killed the God of love
Seventh, the God of devas,
Eighth, the one with poison neck
Ninth, the one who is known as Easwara,
Tenth, the consort of Parvathi,
Eleventh, the fearsome Rudra,

The man who reads these twelve names during dawn, noon and dusk,
Even if ungrateful or having killed a cow,
Even if he has killed Brahmins or teacher,
Or it is a lady, child or an achiever,
The lord of devas, The lord of the bull,
Would get rid of all his sins,
And at the end reach the land of Shiva.
