Inspired by this question, I want to find out the source and origin of Shiv Panchakshara Stotra.
Please provide with original scriptural text, if possible.

Shiva Panchakshar stotram was composed by Adi Shankara. There is also another Shiva Panchakshara stotra avaliable in Shiva Purana. However the popular one starting from "Nagendrahaaraya Trilochanaya.... " was composed by Adi Shankaracharya.

At the end of the stotra:

इति श्रीमच्छङ्कराचार्यविरचितं शिवपञ्चाक्षर स्तोत्रम् सम्पूर्णं ।।
Thus ends the Shiva Panchakshar Stotra composed by Adi Shankaracharya.

The full text of Shiva Panchakshara Stotra goes as:

नागेन्द्रहाराय त्रिलोचनाय
भस्माङ्गरागाय महेश्वराय ।
नित्याय शुद्धाय दिगम्बराय
तस्मै नकाराय नमः शिवाय ॥१॥

मन्दाकिनीसलिलचन्दनचर्चिताय
नन्दीश्वरप्रमथनाथमहेश्वराय ।
मन्दारपुष्पबहुपुष्पसुपूजिताय
तस्मै मकाराय नमः शिवाय ॥२॥

शिवाय गौरीवदनाब्जवृन्दसूर्याय
दक्षाध्वरनाशकाय ।
श्रीनीलकण्ठाय वृषध्वजाय
तस्मै शिकाराय नमः शिवाय ॥३॥

वशिष्ठकुम्भोद्भवगौतमार्यमूनीन्द्रदेवार्चितशेखराय ।
चन्द्रार्कवैश्वानरलोचनाय
तस्मै वकाराय नमः शिवाय ॥४॥

यक्षस्वरुपाय जटाधराय
पिनाकहस्ताय सनातनाय ।
दिव्याय देवाय दिगम्बराय
तस्मै यकाराय नमः शिवाय ॥५॥

फलश्रुती

पञ्चाक्षरमिदं पुण्यं यः पठेच्छिवसंनिधौ ।
शिवलोकमावाप्नोति शिवेन सह मोदते ॥६॥

।।इति श्रीमच्छङ्कराचार्यविरचितं शिवपञ्चाक्षर स्तोत्रम् सम्पूर्णं।।

  • @The Destroyer I had read it... but I forgot the chapter... now I'm confused either it is in Shiva Purana or it is in Linga Purana... – Tejaswee Aug 2 '16 at 11:45
