  1. I am Vivek Sarabeswaran and I am from Chennai.

    I had the darshan of Swami Shantananda Puri last week when he visited Chennai and I had expressed my desire to share the audio of his talk and chanting of this rare Shiva Sahasranama by Swami Shantananda Puri. Swamiji was very happy and readily gave his consent to share this audio.

    Please bear with the slightly poor audio quality as it was taken on a cassette recorder in Ramanasramam sometime in 2005.

    For the Sanskrit text please download from the below weblink:


    For tamil text please download from my Dropbox link below.


    For the audio talk and chanting of Shiva Sahasranamam by Swami Shantananda Puri, please do the following:

    The person in the video is Swami Shantananda Puri also known as “Vashishta Guha Swamigal”. I had the great fortune of meeting and talking to him once.

    • Dear Shri Koushik,

      thanks once again.

      Even though i was seeing the words, my mind wasn’t reading Swamiji’s name properly. I am unable to recall what was I reading then. Perhaps the entry to ” Vashishta Guha ” was not on then.

      Now I am going thru the scribd site suggested by another devotee.

      Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara.

  3. If you contact Sri Kapaleeswaran, he will send you a cd of the Shiva Sahasranama. Tamil book is out of print right now.

  4. Periyava Sharanam. I have copied the following message for all from the e-book and website :
    ” May this book be of great help to all those who want peace in their life and are suffering for want of good relations with other people as also those who like to get Moksha (liberation) by the chanting of these sacred 1000 names given in this text.

    Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara

      • Dear Shri Koushik,

        Pranams. I thank you for the link. It is in Hindi. I am very poor in the knowledge of Hindi. However, since the content is so important I can use it in a later date.

        Therein I found the Swamiji’s name is given differently from that of this blog. A bit confusing. Besides, the opening sentence of the addressed Maha Periyavaa in unusual way (shall I say hurting way).

        I was looking for the Tamil version for the ease of fully appreciating the meaning.

        I did find find in the net, English and devanagari version, if your are keen. No meanings were given though,


        I once again thank you. This has created another chain of responses.

        Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara


  8. I can imagine how people who read such Saintly Gyanis miracles wd react in 50 yrs from Now..Mahaperiyava has not only lived like Adi Sankara,but is instrumental in establishing such Saints!worth reading again n again.
