777 – Forgive me

Sivaparadha Kshamapana Strotram means seeking forgiveness. It was composed by Adi Shankaracharya. It is recited for forgiveness in the worship of Shiva. Devotees beg for forgiveness for the sins that they committed with their senses.

In the thousand petalled Lotus, which is reached through the subtle path and in which life transcends into the primordial sound of Om, where the meanings of injunctions of Vedas are merged into the bright light of eternal bliss, I do not meditate on you, O Lord. Please forgive me.

I never saw your glory. You are free of limitations, beyond the darkness of delusion, attachments and the three qualities. You are utterly pure and bright. But I missed You, all along, out of my foolish preoccupations. Forgive me, O Lord.

Shiva is considered the most tender-hearted God and if asked for forgiveness with sincerity, he grants it.

He has no expectations from his devotees, only compassion for all.
