The following details are from the blog of a friend of mine who has kindly permitted to share it here and in fact he was the one who gave me the Siva Sahasranamam Text and Audio to be read and chanted and I am now sharing the same with others here .


Shiva Sahasranama of Linga Purana - Talk and chanting by Swami Shantananda Puri
http://shravanam.blogspot.in/2012/07/shiva-sahasranama-of-linga-purana-talk.html

This is a wonderful Shiva Sahasranama that has been recommended by His Holiness Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswathi Mahaswamigal (1894-1994) of Kanchi Mutt.


For the Sanskrit text please download from the below weblink:

Note : The above has Sasnkrit Text with word by word meaning in Hindi but the introduction is in English and one can understand the importance of this text and how much trouble Swami Shantananda Puri had in getting the original Linga Purana version of Shiva Sahasranamam .

Some points about this audio version of Siva Sahasranama :

1) It has a simple Dhyana Shloka that was selected by Kanchi Paramacharya
2) There is no Phala Shruthi here
3) Most of the words here resemble the words in Vishnu Sahasranama as mostly the attributes of God are nearly the same .
4) It is quite simple to read and finish and it will take only 20 mts to complete it .
5) Listen to the Audio Talk by Swami Shantananda Puri to understand how and why this came about and how Kanchi Paramacharya urged him to bring it out . In the PDF Sanskrit / Hindi Text , there is a good English Introduction of the same and that is also useful .
6) This Siva Sahasranama of Linga Purana is a rare version and very auspicious to be read in every home , more auspicious to be read in a Shiva Temple and even more Auspicious to be read in a Shiva Kshetra like Thiruvanamalai .  I read it daily in my home after doing a small Shiva Puja . In case I could not do it in day time , I do it in evening / night .

Om Peace .
