I am searching for references to understand iconography of lord Shiva that we can visualise during om Namah Shivaya chanting.

    Every mantra chanting have a Dhayna sloka/mantra associated with it .. while chanting one can visualize that form described by that particular Dhyana sloka.

  • Thanks @Rickross, I saw few more things mentioned in the document. Seems like a master doc for this mantra. Is it given by some guru or collected form some scripture? Dec 26, 2023 at 15:10

    Those are the usual and general steps for a complete mantra japa ritual ..all these steps are from one scripture or the other.
