    1. Yes, we can chant mantra for someone else.

      In fact, there is one story in Shiva purana.

      Chandra(moon) has cursed and he has to complete 10 crore times of mahamrityunjay mantra.

      Many rishis chant mahamrityunjay mantra behalf of Chandra.

      As a result of chanting he become free from diseases and become part of Shiva.

      As rishis chant behalf of Chandra, we can also recite mantras of Lord Shiva for another person.

      Supreme God, who know everything, they also know our problems.

      If we pray for other person then it will definitely effect.

      Om Namah Shivay

  8. Om Namah shivay

    For me It is taken only 7 to 8 days by continuing chanting om namah shivay 108+ times but im trying to chant 1008 times but ,,& i hope i will soon do this, so that i can control my anger- unbelievable happiness.
    I Promise Everybody with confident try it and you will never go back!!!

    ** Hara Hara mahadeva shambo shankara **

    1. I am sure that you will feel effect and experience. Many of my friends who chant mantra, they say about change in life. Now, he can easily control anger after chanting.

      They see effect in life at such level that they will continue to chant many times. I see changes in many person's life.

      Mantra will definitely work. Chant it everyday and God give everything in life.

  9. Do we have to chant om namah shivay in slow speed or can chant in fast way so as to complete more repititions...by doing fast we cn do 10malas in about 15min, however will it be as effective as doing it slowly?

    1. I prefer to chant slowly. However fast chanting is effective but in slow chant we can more focused on mantra and it's meaning.

      But main thing is devotion toward Shiva. If we have faith in God and truly believe then it will give much effect by fast chanting.

      Shiva Purana say that Om Namah Shivay can be chanted at any place, at any time. Only required is faith(Shraddha) in Mahadev. They will forgive us for mistake and give blessing. So, we can chant slow or fast as comfortable but must have devotion in Shakar Bhagwan.

  10. NMS - I chant Om Namah Shivaya every morning 108 times using mala. As well as the Maha Mrityanjaya 21 times.
    I am sure it benefits me without realising it.
    However, to benefit further I would like to do 10 malas i.e. chant it 1008 will be improve my life, i.e. my poor memory/IQ level, my job, health etc. Also to improve my daughter's life too?
    Is it best to chant slow or fast and can it be done anything during the day or does it have to be a specific time. I work full time so struggle with time unless i do it in the evening or get up earlier in the morning at 5am.
    Also how soon would i see the positive benefits.


    1. Hi Jay,

      Shiva Purana say that we can chant mantra at any time or any place, there is no restrictions for Om Namah Shivay. But for maximum effect chanting in temple is best or at home near to photo of God.

      Time for mantra reciting early morning and at night. Also chant it every time, like time at walking, sleeping and working.

      Make it habit to remember Lord's name everytime.

      And as Purana say that we can chant it behalf of other. Try it as reciting some mala for daughter also.

      For effect, it depends on our karmas and previous life. But by continuous chanting will remove bad karma. But as soon as our bad karma removed, we can see positive effect.

      I see many people who first suffers from many problems but as soon as they start mantra, all things will changes. One student get very high marks after start to chanting. It definitely improve our IQ and change situations around us. But sometimes we can't understand what is right for us, but God will do everything right for us.

      By fast chanting, we become energetic. Slow chant calm our mind. We can chant it fast or slow depends upon situations but as long as we have devotion toward Shiva it will definitely give effect.

      As you start 1008 times of mantra, you will see positive effect within one or two weeks and see something that can't happen without God. I also see many times like God is around me.

      Om Namah Shivay

  11. Om namah shivaya

    Need your help!!
    Do we chant om namah shivaya in death sutak time?
    please help me
    Many Thanks in Advance..

    1. Actually at death sutak time we can't go to Temple or touch Purana but it is ok to chant Om Namah Shivay. As the Shiv Purana say that it can be chanted at any time.

      Because God is everywhere, I think that it is ok to chant mantra.

    2. Many Many Thanks for your kind and quick response sir,
      Because even a single day i can't skip to chant om namah shivaya mantra, if i say i have addicted to chant i hope that should not be wrong..
      once again Thank you so much.

      Om namah shivaya.

    3. It is great that you chant it everyday. Really you are great person.

  12. Sita Ram
    I have mind problems where i would only think that negative things would happen to me.Have a chest injury for about four years and only getting worst.I need some help

    1. First, not think about anything else. Try to think about only God and their mantras. Read books related to Lord Shiva like Shiva Purana or Bhagwad Gita. If you not have book, read online or buy book because by reading divine books, we know more about Lord and it help to remove bad thoughts. Also make a schedule like everyday chant 108 times Om Namah Shivaya or even 1008 times. Visit temple and always try to remember Lord. May be because of previous karma we face problem right now but by holy name of God, our karma become positive and injury solve.

      What we have to do is surrender to Lord and request them to solve problems and pain. God Shiva is easily pleased by their names and worship. So try to give maximum time to God and always think about them.

      It is said that average person have 30,000 to 60,000 thoughts everyday. But by concentrating on God, it become only one thought which remember supreme Lord. So, try to remember Mahadev and their mantras.
      It will remove negative thinking and pain of injury. God will definitely helps.

      Om Namah Shivaya.

  13. Om namah shivaya !!!

    Sir, Im daily chanting om namah shivaya.
    I wanted to do we chant vishnu sahasranama daily with chanting om namah shivaya 108 + times?
    Because there is so many mind healing power including in vishnusahasranama also .
    please enlight us !!

    1. Actually I also do almost same. I chant Shiv Sahasranama which is very similar to Vishnu Sahasranama. And I feel very great after chanting but I think it take long to chant, about half an hour. But Lord Shiva give Sudarshana chakra to Vishnu by this thousands names and give blessing that Shiva will fulfill every good wishes of devotee who chant Sahasranama daily. So, it is very great to chant 1008 names with Om Namah Shivay, also some people who try it they also feel great effect.

      And you have any other questions or experience of Mahadev then share..

      Om Namah Shivaya

    2. Thank you very much sir !

  14. Can I chant ganesh mantra and om.namah shivay and all grahas beez mantra daily

    1. Yes, more time we give for God is better for us. Ganesh is son of Lord Shiva and even before worshipping any God, Lord Ganesha worshipped first. So it is great to chant Ganesha mantra.

      And for removing problem of Graha, beej mantra of Graha are great...

      After chant Mantra Om Namah Shivaya.

      Chant 108 times or 1008 times in Morning around 4:00 AM because it called Brahmamuhurt.

      While reciting, count breath and observe your thoughts if many thoughts comes. Remember meaning of Mantra and chant with Devotion

  17. When I first come to know about Aum Namah Shivaya. I started chanting the whole day wherever I go. Not even a week after I felt different, a calm devine peace came over me and people became more nicer towards me. So whenever I get sick I recite Aum Namah Shivaya 1080 times and followed by Maha Mrityunjaya mantra and I feel the vibration of these mantras in my bed healing me.

    1. Very glad to hear. Actually I also have same effect and many of my friends who chant mantra also feel magical effect.
      God Shiva may bless us

  18. I love Lord Shiva, I can not go out without reciting his mantras, Lord Shiva always makes me feel safe and protected at all times. His mantras are awesome! I am grateful that powerful mantras made available to the public. Thank you!

    1. Welcome, I try to do my best to inspire people to know about Lord Shiva.

      Om Namah Shivay...

    2. I also have very great experience with Lord Shiva. Whenever I face problem, I chant name of them and within short time, problem go away. In many I feel presence of Shiva and like that they help me.

  19. Om Namah Shivay ....

  20. If you chant namah shivaya continuously and in between u just get lost in your other thoughts... Suddenly you get concious and realise that you have been uttering the mantra without actually paying attention to it..
    Does that mean, uttering without paying attention does not have any value??
    Please answer this query.uttering a mantra just like a robot without paying attention to meaning of it..if no,how to improve oneself ..
    Kindly clarify my doubt..

    1. I know that it is difficult to concentrate while chanting but some ways to improve concentration.

      1. Chant in early morning when mind is clean and free from thought
      2. While chant, don't close eyes nor open but half open it. I find that by half open eyes, thoughts significantly reduced
      3. Control your breath and count it with close eyes, after start chanting, it also help to concentrate.

      And also if not paying attention for some reason, it still give effect because Lord Shiva knows our intention. Only thing need is Devotion- A true Bhakti

    2. Thank you so much for your instant reply.._/\_
      I am glad I could reach out to someone for my queries related to spiritualism now..

    3. Welcome
      Please ask me if further I can help you

    4. Thank you so much for all the information. Are these your own self learned knowledge or you studied this ?
      Do you have a mantra to clear mind disturbances,to stop getting too emotional , think clearly for answer to problems ? Thank you

    5. Mostly I get knowledge by reading Puranas, gita and by experience.

      Om Namah Shivay is great mantra for it but there is one another mantra which is also too Powerful, It is chanted by Lord Vishnu first time and have so much effect that will solve any problem. I have good experience with this stotram, it is "Shiva Sahasranama". It may take time to chant but really it is so good that I can't even explain. Whenever I chant it, within short time situations changed radically.

      Chant it one time with Devotion and you will feel better in any case of disturbances.

      Om Namah Shivaya
      Jay Shiv Shankar

    6. How should I properly chant Shiva Sahasranama ?
      Do I chant it continuously with no break ?
      What if I mispronounce one of the names ?Do I repeat it ?
      What should I do on MahaShivaRathri Night ?

    7. I know that it may be difficult to pronounce first time but for it, Listen this mantra from someone else or from YouTube.

      First listen some times and after try to pronounce stotram. Print it from pdf file and read.

      In beginning, you may chant it as part but after learning, it seem very easy and you can chant whole stotram at once.

      And even if there is mistake in pronounce, Lord Shiva forgive it. Just request forgiveness from Shiva for any mistakes unknowingly happens in Mantra Jaap.

      In MahashivRatri, Do fastening, if possible then take only water or some fruits. Stay in Temple in night of Mahashivratri and worship Lord Shiva with Bilvapatra, Flowers and by special procedures. Pass whole night with Lord Shiva in your heart. Do Bhajans and Kirtans of them and pray them with devotion.

  21. Parameshwar guruji
    Can chanting Aum Namah Shivaya silently in mind also help and have the same efect and solve all the problems I am facing in life?

    1. Chanting Om Namah Shivay in mind also help but when we chant, vibration of mantra may have some effect. However most important thing in chanting is devotion. If we Chant with devotion in mind, Lord Shiva know it and solve our life problem. Try to chant as many times as possible to please Lord Shiva. Have a Faith in Supreme God, remember them. By blessing of Mahadev, Problem of life will automatically solve.

  22. Please provide Shiva sahasranama link which is chanted by god Vishnu...

    2. Thank you for your quick response.
      Please provide English document link I don't know hindhi.....

    3. Here is in English:


      While it take time to recite but really have unbelievable.

    4. Thank you Soo much.....

  23. Is it different in Mahabharata Shiva sahasranama and in linga Purana Shiva sahasranama?

    1. Yes, there is some difference between two. In Linga Puran, Lord Vishnu chant while in Mahabharata, Upamanyu chant and tell to Lord Krishna. Both are effective but because I chant Linga Puran Sahasranama from beginning, I chant it. You can chant any of nama.

  24. Sir,
    Thanks for the information, i am suffering from nervousness for no reason, always feeling weak, Doctors say it is anxiety, fear to leave house, not willing to go to work, can you please help me.

    1. Here are some ways to free from this problems

      1. Request Lord Shiva to free from this problem. Lord Shiva is so kind that listen every prayer of devotee, request them. Chant mantras of them. Read books Shiva Purana or Gita which help to concentrate on God which helps to free from anxiety, depression.

      2. Go to place where numbers of trees are there. In many cities, pollution is high which may cause negative effect on mind. If possible then go to village or clean atmosphere. Also take care of what eat every day because it have deep effect on mind. Consider eating fruits and simple, take Prasadam of Lord Shiva daily in Temple after aarti.

      3. Start by reciting Om Namah Shivay 108 times and promise to daily reciting minimum 108 times. It really help in brain problem.

      Try to remember Lord Shiva.

    1. As per my knowledge, if we keep Shivling at home then it should worshipped everyday. You can keep the Shivlingam that is worshipped but if you aren't able to worship all Lingam then give it to other devotee who can do Puja.

      Also meditate Lord Shiva and request forgiveness from them if any mistakes happen without knowing.

  27. Sir, i read on a website that our rishis did mantra sadhanas and meditation for more than 100 years only then they could get the benefits, but our lives our so disturbed and busy, will i get the benefits by chanting it daily 108 times? I have started just a week back.

  28. Hello kind and wonderful person

    I am a 17 year old boy who has suffered a lot of problems, but I am now recovering a lot by making some effort. My problem is fear of people, fear of their judgments. I go outside 3-5 times a week now and maybe more, but in the past I used to go 0-2 times a week only.. I don't go to school since the beginning of 2018.

    I wonder if this will help me overcome my fear of embarassment and judgment I got since I was 11 year old and maybe since I was born? I also developped an habit of hiding all of my emotions since 12 years old, but now I managed to release a lot of them which made me feel better. Thank you I hope you the greatest happiness love wonderfullesst haaaaaaaaaaa!!

  30. Hello it'S me Seth haha.. :) I am just here to express my love, hapiness, abundance and extreme well-being and longevity.

    These past 2 months I have improved a lot in terms of my ''fears'', to the point where they do not exist anymore lol!
    These past 2 weeks I started chanting ''Om Mani Padme Hum'' and a few days ago ''Om Namah Shivaya'' and I think they really helped me by putting me in a direction of power and goodness and ya.
    I wish you happiness and greatness and happiness and yeah, please wish me the same so we can make the power of love and compassion vibrate even stronger.

    1. Thank you Seth,

      Om Namah Shivay is very great. Many of my friends also experience this mantra. I chant it whenever any trouble comes, and it instantly reduced. I see many miracles due to Mahamantra Om Namah Shivay.

      Lord Shiva may bless us for peace, divinity and true devotion.

  31. Chant Om Namah Shivaya with faith and Om.gum ganapathayei namaha with faith and you will be blessed

  32. I heard that girls should chant this mantra to find their love and lover..on mondays posting on fruits only..is that right??

  33. I had intense pain in my legs . I usually only pray Devi . I had never had the habit of praying Lord Shiva. My pain increased as I prayed Devi today . It was unbearable. I suddenly chanted Om Nama Shivaaya for some reason . My pain reduced in 10 minutes. I was confused , took bath and chanted again . I felt some deep sense of peace . My pain was almost gone . I felt so good

  34. I then reasearched benefits of chanting and hit this page

  35. Very scientifically explained. Tks a million millio.

  36. Am a widow, my husband passed away within 6months of married life... Recently fall in love with a guy, he too saying can't able to marry u.... Right now am jobless is this mantra helpful for me....?

    1. God Shiva care devotee such that they can't see devotee in sorrow. They will help us. Just put complete faith in them and recite Om Namah Shivaya 108 times. Also chant mantra before sleep. Just remember Shiva. They will help Surely.

  37. does this mantra fulfill wishes
    please add your experiences of the lord
    i have chanted all mantras and stotras but nothing seems to work for me.


    1. Mantra fulfill wishes. But is is better to not ask anything from God. God always give us what is best for us, and if one face negativity, it may be due to previous Karma.

      And I have many experience of Lord Shiva's help on me. Despite mistakes I made, whenever I call Shiva, they help me in every times. I see how everything becomes right, problem being solved. I feel that Lord Shiva changed my destiny.

      Just chant mantra with complete faith in God, it will surely works.

  38. Thank you for the reply to my query.

  39. my name is yogesh pant. born 16th july 1970 in new delhi and also brought up in new delhi india.married and have one daughter. which mantra is best for me for peaceful mind and happy family?

    1. Generally Om Namah Shivaya is very good mantra for all purpose, and is recommended in Shiva Purana.

      One other mantra is Shiva Sahastranama, which is chanted by Lord Vishnu. Lord Shiva says that who chant this mantra everyday, no sorrow ever comes even in dream.

      It is somewhat long mantra which takes around half hour to chant, but it is explained in both Shiva Purana and Linga Purana.

      Here's link -

      Some other mantras or Stotras are:

      Rudrashtakam Stotram
      Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra
      Shri Dwadash Jyotirlinga Stotram

  40. Om Namah Shivay !!!
