Panchakshara is a Mahamantra (greatest chant), composed of five significant letters – ‘Namassivaya.’ Generally, a mantra is a powerful chant that emoves all miseries, difficulties, and obstacles from people’s lives who reflects on it. Chanting a mantra with the complete focus can bestow eternal bliss and immortality to a devotee.
However, Siva Panchakshara Mantra is the most powerful mantra among seven crores of Mantras, as per Yajurveda – an ancient sacred text in Hinduism. It is said that who chant or perform Japa of this Mahamantra – ‘Namassivaya,’ get freed from the circle of birth and deaths and acquire Moksha with eternal bliss.
Since Panchakshara is the body of Lord Nataraja, which is a manifestation of Lord Shiva, adding “OM” before “Namassivaya” and chanting “OM Namassivaya” can provide you miracles in life.
Rituals of chanting Siva Panchakshara Mantra:
The devotee must take a fresh bath or wash their hands, feet, and face. They must wear Rudraksha Mala (Rudraksha Beads) and Bhasma (holy ashes), take a seat on Sukhasana or Padmasana posture, facing North or East in the quiet area of the room or prayer room. Chant the Panchakshara repeatedly and meditate on the form of Lord Siva – keep the Lord Shiva image in the heart or space between the eyebrows.
If anyone practices this meditation daily can achieve a purified heart and soul. It will burn the sins, and the devotee will experience the eternal bliss of Sivanandam and become everlasting.
