« on: July 23, 2008, 10:46:26 AM »
As the name implies, Siva-Nama-valyashtakam is an 8-verse
composition of Sankara.  A sample,

Verse 7:- O Thou who dwellest in Mount Kailas!  Thou whose
carrier is the bull,
O Conqueror of death!  O Three-eyed One! Lord of the
three worlds!
Beloved of Narayana!  Slayer of lust!  Thou Sakti's Lord!
Rescue me, helpless as I am, from the trackless forest of
the miserable world."

Verse 8:- "Lord of the universe! Refuge of the whole world!
O Thou of infinite forms!
Soul of the Universe! O Thou in whom repose the infinite
virtues of the world!
O Thou adored by all!  Compassionate One! O Friend of the poor!
Resue me, helpless as I am, from the trackless forest of
the miserable world."

Arunachala Siva.
