Veda-Sara-Siva Storam of Sankara
« on: July 21, 2008, 05:14:04 PM »
Veda-Sara-Siva Stotram of Sankara, described the primordial
aspect of Siva, as the essence of Vedas, in 11 verses.  A sample,

Verse 5:-  "How do I worship the Paramatman, One and without
a second,
Who is the Cause of the Universe,
The Primal Being, Spirit formless and actionless, who is
attained through the syllable OM?
Him do I worship Siva, of whom the universe is born,
by whom it is sustained, in whom it merges."

Verse 6:- "How do worship who is neither earth, nor water,
who is neither fire, nor air nor ether,
Who is unvisited by sleep, yet evermore unwearied,
Beyond both heat and cold, without a country and without a home,
Him do I worship Siva, the Formless One, the Trimurti?"

Arunachala Siva.
