My #1 Choice: Om Namah Shivaya
This mantra is my personal favorite and the mantra I have used for years. It may be the most powerful of all the mantras for Lord Shiva.
Divine Babaji recommended this mantra to all his followers, and since I feel a solid connection to both Shiva and Babaji, I have practiced this faithfully.
Try this mantra while you meditate. Close your eyes and recite it quietly within. You will get even better results from your meditations. You can also use the mantra in combination with Gyan mudra.
Reciting "Om Namah Shivaya" has given me extraordinary meditations, and it could do the same for you.
Additional Shiva Mantras
Om Namo Bhagwate Rudraay
This mantra is used to gain blessings from Shiva. It's called Rudra Mantra.
Om Tatpurushaay Vidmahe Vidmahe Mahadevaay Deemahi Tanno Rudra Prachodayat
This mantra is used to show devotion to Shiva.
The most straightforward Shiva mantra to remember is Om Namah Shivaya. It's beautiful and short. If it was good enough for Babaji, it's good enough for me.
Babaji said that Om Namah Shivaya would protect its devotees from harm. It's my experience that this mantra works as a conduit towards Shiva consciousness. It can only do a person well and purify their karma.
