दीक्षितः शिवमन्त्रेण

शूद्रो वा यदि वान्योऽपि चण्डालोऽपि जटाधरः।
दीक्षितः शिवमन्त्रेण स भस्माङ्गी शिवो भवेत्॥१७८॥
षडक्षरेण मन्त्रेण पुष्पम् एकमपि स्वयम्।
लिङ्गस्य मूर्ध्नि यो दद्यान्न स भूयोऽभिजायते॥१७९॥
—मित्रभेदः नाम प्रथमे तन्त्रे देवशर्मा-परिव्राजक कथा ४
śūdro vā yadi vānyo’pi caṇḍālo’pi jaṭādharaḥ|
dīkṣitaḥ śivamantreṇa sa bhasmāṅgī śivo bhavet||178||
ṣaḍakṣareṇa mantreṇa puṣpam ekamapi svayam|
liṅgasya mūrdhni yo dadyānna sa bhūyo’bhijāyate||179||
—mitrabhedaḥ nāma prathame tantre devaśarmā-parivrājaka kathā 4
A śūdra or a wild(?) or even a caṇḍāla or an ascetic,
He who has been initiated into the mantra of Śiva and has smeared his body with bhasma (ash) is Śiva himself.
Uttering the six-syllabled mantra (om namaḥ śivāya), even if one flower is offered,
On the head of the Śivaliṅga, that person is not born again.
