Prathamastu Mahadevo
DwitEyastu Mahesvaraha
Truteeyaha Sankaro gneya
Chaturtho Vrushabhadhwajaha
Panchamaha KruththiVaasaascha
Shashtaha Kamaanga nasanaha

Dwadasaha Siva UchyathE

First, the great Lord,
Second, the greatest among gods,
Third, the well known Shankara
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,
And twelfth Lord Shiva

dwadasaithani naamaani trisandhyam yah pathennaraha
Kruthghnaschaiva Goghnascha
bramhagA Guruthalpagaha
StrI bAla ghAtakaschiava
SuraapO VrushaLi patihi
Muchyate Sarva Papebhyo
Rudra Lokam Sa gaCHathi.

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.
