Siva Pancaksara at Stutimandal

Sample: Salutations for the na-letter-embodiment Śiva, Who is adorned with a garland of snake, Who has three eyes, Who has ashes rubbed over the body, Who is the ruler of everyone, Who is indestructible, Who is pure and without ornation, and Who is entirely blissful.[1]

Many hearfelt thanks for your praiseworthy efforts for the benefit of the global family of truth seekers (Shiva bless you!).
Just an attempt of correction regarding the translation of Nandiishvarapramathanaathamaheshvaraaya (nandi-iishvara + pramatha-naatha + maheshvaraaya): to the Supreme Lord, the lord of nandi and ruler of pramatha (pramathas being goblins serving Shiva).
Om Namah Shivaaya!

Namaste Hera:

Thanks for the kind words.

Actually that compound can be broken in two ways:

* Keeping Nandin as an Isvara and then Pramathanaatha as Ganesh - and Siva being Mahaa-Ishvara of them.

* Keeping Nandin+ Ishwara and Pramatha+naatha and Maheshvara as the names of Siva Himself.

We will edit the text as suggested by you.

Wishing well,
