tvanmayacittatayā hṛdi vande || 1 ||
He who is involved in the consciousness of
Moving and non moving beings who are spread everywhere,
Who is divine, only one , endless and primeval,
Who is Lord Bhairava who is the support of all orphans ,
I salute him who is in my mind with all my heart.
bhāti mama tvadanugrahaśaktyā |
tvaṃ ca maheśa sadaiva mamātmā
svātmamayaṃ mama tena samastam || 2 ||
At the present time , you are completely spread in me,
And to me it appears that with your power of blessing,
You are always the greatest god who has filled up,
My soul which is completely full of yourself.
svātmani viśvaga(ye)te tvayi nāthe
tena na saṃsṛtibhītikathāsti |
trāsavidhāyiṣu karmagaṇeṣu || 3 ||
In this world you are the lord of my soul,
And because of that there is no fear in my existence,
And due to that I am not afraid of difficulties and sorrow,
Which are resulting from this cycle of birth and death
antaka māṃ prati mā dṛśamenāṃ
krodhakarālatamāṃ vinidhehi |
bhīṣaṇa bhairava śaktimayo.asmi || 4 ||
Oh lord of death do not see me,
Do not give me that very black angry look ,
Oh courageous one who always thinks of serving Shiva,
Oh fearsome Bhairava, make me filled up with strength.
rnātha namo.astu na jātu bibhemi || 5 ||
Like this for me you please commence,
This mingling with the splendour of light ,
And bring to an end the duties of the ghosts of god of death,
Oh Lord, salutations and please never awaken them.
tvayyahamātmani nirvṛtimemi || 6 ||
Oh ray of light of the awakening truth,
Who is called the universal consciousness of the world,
Who is having a nature filled with the divine nectar.
To you my soul salutes with ecstasy!
nātha tadaiva mama tvadabheda-
stotraparāmṛtavṛṣṭirudeti || 7 ||
Assuming that you are attainable by the mind,
Finding that my body is in state of suffering,
Oh Lord, I am raining this nectar like prayer,
So that I would not be different from you.
śaṅkara satyamidaṃ vratadāna-
snānatapo bhavatāpavidāri |
syandati cetasi nirvṛtidhārām || 8 ||
Oh Lord Shiva , it is true that penance, charity,
Bath in sacred waters and meditation breaks the pain of birth and death,
But the nectar like thought of your divine story,
Would wet the mind with ultimate salvation.
nṛtyati gāyati hṛṣyati gāḍhaṃ
saṃvidiyaṃ mama bhairavanātha |
tvāṃ priyamāpya sudarśanamekaṃ
durlabhamanyajanaiḥ samayajnam || 9 ||
Oh Lord Bhairava it is well known,
That dancing singing and intimate knowledge ,
Of you is measured as the only good acts to be done,
And is not easily available to the bad people at the right time.
abhinavaguptaḥ stavamimamakarot |
śamayati jhaṭiti janasya dayāluḥ || 10 ||
|| samāptaṃ stavamidaṃ abhinavākhyaṃ padyanavakam ||
Abhinava Guptha wrote this great prayer on the Dasami of the dark fortnight in the month of Pausha, and due to this the Lord due to utmost compassion, quickly destroys all sufferings of people, as He is merciful. Thus ends the prayer of nine stanzas written by Abhinavaguptha.
