Shiva Sahasranama Stotram


When I started typing out the Shiva Sahasranamam that I have with me, I found out that there are two versions of the same. It seems that the one that I have posted here is from Mahabharata. You can see this link here to know more about the context in which this was imparted to King Yudhishtra. Please click on the "next" button at the bottom of that web page to read the Shiva Sahasranama stotram.
