    Nacha Shrotra Jihve Na Cha Ghrana Netre
    Nacha Vyoma Bhoomir Na Tejo Na Vayu
    Chidananda Rupa Shivoham Shivoham

    Meaning: I am neither the mind, intelligence, ego nor chitta (seat of memory); neither the ears nor the tongue nor the senses of smell and sight; neither ether nor air, nor fire, nor water, nor earth - I am eternal bliss and awareness - I am Siva! I am Siva.

    2. Na Cha Prana Sangyo Na Vai Pancha Vayu
    Na Vaa Sapta dhatur Na Vaa Pancha Koshah
    Na Vak Pani Padam Na Chopastha Payu
    Chidananda Rupa Shivoham Shivoham

    Meaning: I am neither the prana (vital force), nor the five vital breaths, neither the seven elements of the body, nor its five sheaths, nor hands, nor feet, nor tongue, nor other organs of action. I am eternal bliss and awareness - I am Siva! I am Siva.

    3. Na Me Dvesha Ragau Na Me Lobha Mohau
    Mado Naiva Me Naiva Maatsarya Bhavah
    Na Dharmo Na Chartho Na Kamo Na Mokshah
    Chidananda Rupa Shivoham Shivoham

    Meaning: Neither greed nor delusion, nor loathing, nor liking have I, nothing of pride or ego, neither of dharma or object, nor of desire or liberation. I am eternal bliss and awareness - I am Siva! I am Siva.

    Aham Bhojanam Naiva Bhojyam Na Bhokta
    Chidananda Rupa Shivoham Shivoham

    Meaning: Nothing of pleasure or pain or vice do I know, of mantra or sacred place, of Vedas or sacrifice; neither am I the eater, nor the food nor the act of eating. I am eternal bliss and awareness - I am Siva! I am Siva.

    Pita Naiva Me Naiva Mata Na Janma
    Na Bandhur Na Mitram Gurur Naiva Shishyah
    Chidananda Rupa Shivoham Shivoham

    Meaning: Death or fear have I none, nor any distinciton of race or colour, neither father nor mother, nor even birth have I; neither friend nor comrade, neither disciple nor Guru (Teacher). I am eternal bliss and awareness - I am Siva! I am Siva.

    6. Aham NirvikaLpo Nirakara Roopo
    Vibhut Vaakhya Sarvatra Sarvendriyanam
    Sada Me Samatvam Na Mukthir Na Bandhah
    Chidananda Rupa Shivoham Shivoham

    Meaning: I have no form or fancy, the all pervading am I; everwhere I exist, yet am beyond the senses; neither salvation am I, nor anything to be known. I am eternal, bliss and awareness - I am Siva! I am Siva.
