Chandra Shekhar`Ashtakam


चन्द्रशेखराष्टकम्
Chandra Shekara Ashtakam

The Chandra Shekara Ashtakam is a very powerful prayer. The prayer removes the fear of accidental deaths in life. One must listen this stotra in the morning to remove the fear of accidental death in his family too. He who reads this prayer, Composed by the son of Mrukandu, Who was fear struck with death, In the temple of Lord Shiva, Will not have fear of death, He would have full healthy life, With all grains and all wealth, And Lord Chandra Shekara, Would give Him, Salvation in the end.

ऋषि मार्कण्डेय
चन्द्रशेखर चन्द्रशेखर चन्द्रशेखर पाहिमाम् ।
चन्द्रशेखर चन्द्रशेखर चन्द्रशेखर रक्षमाम् ॥
 
रत्नसानु शरासनं रजताद्रि शृङ्ग निकेतनं
शिञ्जिनीकृत पन्नगेश्वर मच्युतानल सायकम् ।
क्षिप्रदग्द पुरत्रयं त्रिदशालयै रभिवन्दितं
चन्द्रशेखरमाश्रये मम किं करिष्यति वै यमः ॥ 

I seek refuge in him, who has the moon, Who made the mountain of jewels into his bow, Who resides on the mountain of silver, Who made the serpent Vasuki as rope, Who made Lord Vishnu as arrows, And quickly destroyed the three cities, And who is saluted by the three worlds, And so what can the God of Death do to me?

पञ्चपादपपुष्पगन्धपदाम्बुजदूयशोभितं
भाललोचनजातपावकदग्धमन्मथविग्रह।म् ।
भस्मदिग्धकलेवरं भवनाशनं भवमव्ययं
चन्द्रशेखरमाश्रये मम किं करिष्यति वै यमः ॥

I seek refuge in him, who has the moon, Who shines with the pair of his lotus-like feet, Which are worshipped by the scented flowers of five kalpaka trees,
Who burnt the body of God of Love, Using the fire from the eyes on his forehead,
Who applies ash all over his body, Who destroys the sorrow of life, And who does not have destruction, And so what can the God of Death do to me?

मत्तवारण मुख्यचर्म कृतोत्तरीय मनोहरं
पङ्कजासन पद्मलोचन पूजिताङ्घ्रि सरोरुहम् ।
देव सिन्धु तरङ्ग श्रीकर सिक्त शुभ्र जटाधरं
चन्द्रशेखरमाश्रये मम किं करिष्यति वै यमः ॥
 
I seek refuge in Him, who has the moon, Who is the stealer of minds because of his upper cloth, Made of the skin of the ferocious elephant,Who has lotus-like feet which are worshipped, By Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu, And who has matted hair drenched by drops, Of the waves of the holy river Ganga, And so what can God of Death do to me?

यक्ष राजसखं भगाक्ष हरं भुजङ्ग विभूषणम्
शैलराज सुता परिष्कृत चारुवाम कलेबरम् ।
क्ष्वेडनीलगलं परश्वध धारिणं मृगधारिणम्
चन्द्रशेखरमाश्रये मम किं करिष्यति वै यमः ॥ 5 ॥

 I seek refuge in him, who has the moon, Who is friend of Lord Kubera, Who destroyed the eyes of Bhaga, Who wears serpent as ornament, Whose left part of the body is decorated, By the daughter of the king of mountain, Whose neck is blue because of the poison, Who is armed with an axe, And who carries a deer with Him, And so what can God of Death do to me?

कुण्डलीकृत कुण्डलीश्वर कुण्डलं वृषवाहनं
नारदादि मुनीश्वर स्तुतवैभवं भुवनेश्वरम् ।
अन्धकान्तक माश्रितामर पादपं शमनान्तकं
चन्द्रशेखरमाश्रये मम किं करिष्यति वै यमः ॥ 3 ॥

I seek refuge in Him, who has the moon, Who wears the ear studs made of a curling serpent, Who is the great one being praised by Narada and other sages, Who is the Lord of the entire earth, Who is the killer of Anthakasura. Who is the wish-giving tree to his devotees, And who is the killer of God of Death, And so what can God of Death do to me?

भेषजं भवरोगिणा मखिलापदा मपहारिणं
दक्षयज्ञ विनाशनं त्रिगुणात्मकं त्रिविलोचनम् ।
भुक्ति मुक्ति फलप्रदं सकलाघ सङ्घ निबर्हणं
चन्द्रशेखरमाश्रये मम किं करिष्यति वै यमः ॥ 

 I seek refuge in Him, who has the moon, Who is the doctor who cures sorrowful life,
Who destroys all sorts of dangers, Who destroyed the fire sacrifice of Daksha, Who is personification of three qualities, Who has three different eyes, Who bestows  devotion and salvation, And who destroys all types of sins, And so what can God of death do to me?

भक्तवत्सल मर्चितं निधिमक्षयं हरिदम्बरं
सर्वभूत पतिं परात्पर मप्रमेय मनुत्तमम् ।
सोमवारिन भोहुताशन सोम पाद्यखिलाकृतिं
चन्द्रशेखरमाश्रये मम किं करिष्यति वै यमः ॥ 

I seek refuge in Him, who has the moon, Who is worshipped as darling of devotees, Who is the treasure which is perennial, Who clothes Himself with the directions, Who is the chief of all beings, Who is beyond the unreachable God, Who is not understood by any one, Who is the holiest of every one, And who is served by moon, water, sun, earth, Fire, ether, boss and the Wind And so what can god of death do to me?
 
विश्वसृष्टि विधालिनं पुनरेवपालन तत्परं
संहरं तमपि प्रपञ्च मशेषलोक निवासिनम् ।
क्रीडयन्त महर्निशं गणनाथ यूथ समन्वितं
चन्द्रशेखरमाश्रये मम किं करिष्यति वै यमः ॥

मृत्युभीतमृकण्डसूनुकृतस्तव शिव सन्निधौ
यत्र कुत्र च पठेन्नहि तस्य मृत्युभयं भवेत् ।
पूर्णमायुररोगितामखिलाथ सम्पदमादरं
चन्द्रशेखर एव तस्य ददाति मुक्तिमयत्नतः ॥ 

He who reads this prayer, Composed by the son of Mrukandu, Who was fear struck with death, In the temple of Lord Shiva, Will not have fear of death, He would have full healthy life, With all grains and all wealth, And Lord Chandra Shekara, Would give Him, Salvation in the end.
