I have read a shloka for Lord Vishnu - ugram veeram mahavishnum jwalantam sarvato mukham, nrisingham bhishanam bhadram mrityur mrityurnamamyaham. Can anyone will provide me same types of dynamic (or energetic) Sanskrit shlokas related to Lord Shiva?

  • Dynamic in what sense? All Shiva stotras will give energy .. Are you looking for something like the Tandava Stotram? – Rickross Sep 8 '19 at 7:03
  • Like the above Sanskrit shloka of Vishnu & like two or four liners. Not so long. @Rickross – aniket kumar singh Sep 8 '19 at 7:54
  • What is the type of the Shloka you shared of Lord Vishnu ? Otherwise it is difficult for anyone to find similar shloka. – TheLittleNaruto Sep 8 '19 at 14:44

    The zeal and passion in Shiva Tandava Stotram is mind blowing. – AN GK Sep 9 '19 at 13:39
  • None of the Slokas given in the accepted answer are dynamic. But yet you have accepted it. If you need simply Slokas then there are plenty of them but you asked for "dynamic" ones whatever that means. The Sloka given in ur Q looks "dynamic" to u because Narasimha is a ferocious (Ugra) form of Lord Vishnu. Since Shiva is a benign deity, similar verses are unlikely to be found for him. You need to look for angry forms of Lord Shiva like Krodha Bhairava etc. @aniketkumarsingh – Rickross Sep 10 '19 at 5:28

There are some good mantras in Mahabharata-Shanti - Parva-Moksha Dharma Parva - In the chapter related to Daksha Yajna. Daksha praised Lord Shiva with 180 mantras after Lord Shiva destroyed his Ashwamedha Yajna to pacify him. The above mantra is a similar type of mantra you want where fierce as well as peaceful aspect of Lord Shiva is adored.

अघोरघोररूपाय घोरघोरतराय च |
नमः शिवाय शान्ताय नमः शान्ततमाय च ||96 ||

AghorGhorRupaya GhorGhorTaraya cha | Namah Shivaya Shantaaya Namah ShataTamaya cha ||

P. 320 Salutations to thee that art amiable, and that art frightful, and that art exceedingly so. Salutations to thee that art auspicious, that art tranquil, and that art most tranquil.

सहस्त्रोदयतशुलाय सहस्त्रनयनाय च |
नमो बालार्कवर्णाय बालरूपधराय च || 104 ||

P. 321 Salutations to thee that hast a thousand heads and a thousand feet-, to thee that hast a thousand tridents uplifted in thy hands, and a thousand eyes! Salutations to thee that art of the form of the rising Sun, and that art of the form of a child, that art the protector of attendants all of whom are of the form of children.

And here is one mantra from Shiva aahvaan stotra. By reciting this mantra, One can surpass even the death by grace of Lord Shiva.

ॐ मृत्युंजय परेशान जगदाभयनाशन । तव ध्यानेन देवेश मृत्युप्राप्नोति जीवती ।।
वन्दे ईशान देवाय नमस्तस्मै पिनाकिने । आदिमध्यांत रूपाय मृत्युनाशं करोतु मे ।।
नमस्तस्मै भगवते कैलासाचल वासिने । नमोब्रह्मेन्द्र रूपाय मृत्युनाशं करोतु मे ।।

Om mrityunjay pareshaan jagadaabhayanaashan Tav dhyaanen devesh mrityupraapnoti jeevati
Vande ishaan devaay namastasmai pinakine Aadimadhyaant rupaay mrityunaasham karotu me
Namastasmai bhagwate kailasachal vaasine Namobrahmendra rupaay mrityunaasham karotu me

And last but not least here is a similar dynamic Lord Shiva mantra

मृत्युञ्जयाय रुद्राय नीलकन्ताय शंभवे |
अमृतेषाय सर्वाय महादेवाय ते नमः ||

Mrutyunjayaaya Rudraaya Neelakantaya Shambhave
Amriteshaaya Sarvaaya Mahadevaaya Te Namaha”

Meaning : ‘Oh Lord Shiva, you are the one who has conquered death and are responsible for destruction of the Universe to let life again prevail on earth. Oh lord, you are Neelkantha as you have a blue throat. We pay obeisance to you lord with are hands folded in namaskar.’

    @aniketkumarsingh- Oh , do you mean from which scripture or text. I think that is a kind of independent composition.But i will try to search whether they are taken from Scripture or not? – SwiftPushkar Sep 9 '19 at 3:54

Read Shiva Sahasranama (Rudrayamala Tantra).
