15 Amazing Benefit of Om Namah Shivaya Chanting



Although there are various mantras of Shiva, Om Namah Shivaya is the principal mantra out of them. In fact, Om Namah Shivaya is a five-syllable mantra dedicated to Lord Shiva. The prime benefit of Om Namah Shivaya chanting is that it connects you with true blissfulness.

Introduction to lord Shiva and benefits of om namah shivaya chanting

Shaivism is a significant branch of Sanatan dharma that revers lord Shiva as the supreme being of the cosmosIndeed, he is the giver of strength, health, wealth, and success. The most remarkable thing about Lord Shiva is he is one of the most compassionate lords in Sanatan dharma. In the physical form, his skin tone is white. Shiva rarely gets angry and is always calm and sympathetic. 

Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra and Om Namah Shivaya mantra are the two most sacred mantras dedicated to Shiva in the Sanatan Dharma. Chanting the Om Namah Shivaya mantra with devotion generates several sound waves per second. These waves enhance human intelligence to the optimum level.

Chanting Om Namah Shivaya gradually during meditation gives harmony, concentration, and strength. Rig Veda (Ancient sacred text) defined the Supreme Being as Maharudra, the one who is Vishnu Vallabha (It means most dear to lord Vishnu).

Lord Shiva symbolizes the Maharudra (रुदन रोकने वाला) means the one who wipes out the tears and removes all the fears. If a chanter chants these mantras with true devotion towards Sachidanand Shiva, their mind, body, and soul go through the transcendental phase, and they can achieve the greatest prominences in their lives.

This post will explain the power of the Om Namah Shivaya mantra and how you can take advantage of this auspicious mantra. Thus, I request you to please read the complete post to know the potential benefits of the Om Namah Shivaya mantra.

First thing first, what does Panchakshari mantra mean?

 Om Namah Shivaya is the Panchakshari mantra, which makes it the primary cosmic vibration. The Om Namah Shivaya mantra is attached to the five fundamental components of life: NA – MA – SI – VA – YA.


Earth Element (Prithvi Tattva)


Water Element (Jal Tattva)


Fire element (Agni Tattva)


Air element (Vayu Tattva)


Space element (Akasha Tattva)

नमः शिवाय mantra chanting brings transcendental changes to the chanter’s body. Sages around the world are busy chanting the auspicious mantra through which they have increased their abilities to infinite levels. It means that those particular yogis have connected themselves with the primary nature of their existence, which is their own sublime energy flow.

Indeed, through that energy flow, goddess Shakti takes you to Shiva in the metaphysical form. It is a remarkable ancient science of yogis based on practical realities. The reality is if the mantra is activated correctly, it can unlock your hidden powers and connect you to lord Shiva. Connecting to Shiva and unlocking your hidden powers means going into self-healing mode. It is the ultimate state of the eternal blissfulness. All your sorrows and despair will start disappearing from your life. And you’ll realize that Yogeshwara Shiva is the most benevolent lord of the lords. He is the one who doesn’t have any start and end. Everything emerges from him and gets dissolved in him.

Therefore, Shiva is unique, and there is no one like Shiva. He is the immortal, unconquerable, infinite, omniscient, and the most splendid transformer, known as Adi Purusha.

Understanding Lord Shiva

An intriguing thing about lord Shiva is that the great god Shiva has a bilateral nature of existence. It means Shiva is formless as well as has a physical reality. Lord Shiva’s formless form is revered as the lingam, symbolizing his cosmic voidness

On the flip side, Shiva’s physical manifestation is revered as Shiva-Shankara. The Shaivism tradition holds deep reverence and celebration for both forms of Shiva. Out of the love and devotion, the physical of lord Shiva is called Bholenath. 

  • Every quality of Shiva makes him distinct from others. In his physical existence, Shiva is in a household with goddess Parvati.
  • Shiva is lord of the innocence and generosity.
  • Lord Shiva is the supreme consciousness known for his compassion.
  • The destroyer of the darkness and evil.
  • The greatest giver who gets easily pleased. Shiva himself means the auspicious one.
  • Shiva is renowned for his exceptional ascetic way of life.
  • Shiva as Shankara loves to remain surrounded by Prakriti (Mother Nature).
  • Shiva’s adornment is a pleasant smile and simplicity. Bhasma (Ashes) on the body is Shiva’s embellishment.
  • Lord Shiva shares a special bond of love with Goddess Parvati. He has given equal rights to the goddess as his Vamangi (consort of Shiva)
  • Being Supreme God, Shiva never tricked anyone and delivered justice to all.
  • Yoga, ayurveda, astronomy, meditation, the art of self-defense, dance, and music of musical instruments emerged from him, which he gave to Sapt Rishis.

Even today, almost every Sanatani (Hindu) lady wants to get married to a man who has the qualities of Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva is not confined to any dharma or segment of humanity. Shiva is limitless and belongs to everyone, including mountains, rivers, yogis, trees, soil, air, demons, animals, humans, sun, stars, moons, and galaxies, to the universe. Worshipping Shiva can also make you limitless. That is what the Om Namah Shivaya mantra represents.

Om Namah Shivaya is a powerful mantra in Shaivism. Aum Namah Shivaya represents salutations to the auspicious one or adoring to Lord Shiva.
Anyone can practice the Jaap of Om Namah Shivaya; it has no labels attached, hence free from all kinds of restrictions.

It is the state that liberates you from your limitations. Your subconscious mind gets appropriately stimulated, and you start receiving the constant energy flow from your surroundings.

Yes, it is the phase where Shiva Shakti awakens within you. It means your energy channels are activated. In simple terms, the human body’s chakras are activated. It is not a quick process; it demands serious effort and devotion.

  • Your intelligence will skyrocket, which will cross your limitations. Along with that, your learning capabilities will grow to significant levels.
