Chandrashekhar Ashtkam With Meaning

Let us know when Markandeya Rishi composed Chandrashekhar Ashtakam:

When Maharishi Mrikandu did not get a child even after many attempts, he performed severe penance to please Lord Shiva. Pleased with the rigorous penance of the sage, Lord Shiva told him that he was not destined to have a child, but he gave the sage two options – he would have a wise son whose age would be only 16 years or a son who would be less wise but will live long. Sage Mrikandu chose a short-lived but knowledgeable son. Chandrashekhar Ashtkam With Meaning

After some time, sage Mrikandu was blessed with a son whom he named Markandeya. At an early age, he acquired knowledge of all types of Vedas and became a devotee of Lord Shiva. As soon as Markandeyaji turned 16, his parents started worrying about his age. Chandrashekhar Ashtkam With Meaning

When Markandeyaji asked the reason for their sorrow, they told everything. Markandeyaji was a great devotee of Lord Shiva and that is why he went to the river bank for the last time and made a Shivalinga of clay and started worshiping it. At the same time Yamraj came to take his life. Due to worshiping Shiva, Yamraj was unable to take his life, so he threw his Yamapash towards Markandeyaji, which passed through Markandeya’s neck and went around the Shivalinga. At the same time, Markandeyaji composed a stotra in worship of Lord Shiva which is known as Chandrashekhar Ashtakam.
