The Shiva Dhyana Mantra - Karacharana Kritam is the 14th shloka of Adi Shankara's Shiva Aparadha Kshamapana stotram.
The meaning of this stotram literally translates to seeking forgiveness for past ill deeds.
The mantra was traditionally practiced by Shiva's disciples as a daily prayer. They would chant it for hours in deep penance.
Devotees would hold a Rudraksha mala to count the number of repetitions of this prayer.
