Karpur Gauram Karunavtaaram is one of the most famous mantras that you would hear at the time of a Mangal Aarti. It is an ancient Sanskrit Shloka related to Lord Shiva and is also known as Shiva Yajur Mantra. Karpur Gauram Karunavtaaram mantra is found in Yajurveda, one of the four Vedas.
The word Shiva signifies the auspicious. Lord Shiva roots out sin and terror and is the bestower of earthly happiness, promoter of good, and auspiciousness. Shiva is also called Sankara which means doer of good. Shiva takes one beyond the three bodies (Tripura), gross, subtle, and causal that envelope the Jeeva or the embodied soul. He is hence the Hara or the remover of all evil and the idol of renunciation.
