Sivananda Lahari

The Verse 100 of Sivananda Lahari, describes the greatness of Siva,
the One without a second.

O Sambu!  However much, I think of you through my mind, or speak of
you, with my words, there is no end to your grateness.  I shall stop
my verses now, how to describe the undescribable?  I am not telling
something that is not yours.  There are crores of devas, starting with Brahma, the lotus-seated god, but when these gods count them for adoring, you only stand first.  On enquiring those who are fit for such
a lofy pedestal, the others are getting removed as chaff from the grains.
You are the only one great grain that remains for their adoration!
