Continuous salutations for Sadāśiva, Who lives in a divine mansion at the banks of a river full of golden lotuses, Who is dear to Viṣṇu (One who has Suparṇa Garuḍa as a vehicle), Who has splendor comparable to millions of sun, Who roams with Aparṇā (Gaurī), Who wears the king of snakes (those with a extended lips), Who is auspicious, and Who is known as Śambhu.[1]

Continuous salutations for Sadāśiva, Who has the daughter of Jahnu (Gaṅgā) splashed by matted hair peak and partial moon on His forehead, Who has the Sun (pataṅga), the Moon (enemy of lotus) and the Fire (source of fuel) as three eyes, Who is surrounded by king of snakes, Who is friendly to righteous ones, Who is auspicious, and Who is known as Śambhu.[2]

Continuous salutations for Sadāśiva, Who is decorated by the Veda songs emanating from the lotus-mouth of four-headed Brahmā, Whose Ardhanārīśvara form is made resplendent by the younger sister (Yogamāyā) of four-armed Viṣṇu (Kṛṣṇa), Who in Tāṇḍava form is skilful in giving wishes in four ways, Who is auspicious, and Who is known as Śambhu.[3]

Continuous salutations for Sadāśiva, Whose beautiful and resplendent face is with young-shoot like beautiful lips and gentle smile resembling rays from winter moon, Who nourishes Viṣṇu from the blood liberated from a shining skull in His hand, Who is auspicious, and Who is known as Śambhu.[4]

Continuous salutations for Sadāśiva, Who was offered by devoted Acyuta (Viṣṇu) with thousand eyes — because of zero sight while praying with thousand lotuses, Who gives the cycle of light to uncountable solar systems, Who is auspicious, and Who is known as Śambhu.[5]

Continuous salutations for Sadāśiva, Who has earth as the chariot, Who has Viṣṇu (One bearing wheel of a chariot) bearing a pleasant umbrella leaf, Who made Mount Meru as a bow and air-eating (snake) as the bow-string, Who made Viṣṇu (One respected by Aja) as the charioteer, Who ordered Veda as the horses (for the chariot), Who is auspicious, and Who is known as Śambhu.1[6]

Continuous salutations for Sadāśiva, Who gave liberation in a moment to those reveling on prohibited Dakṣa sacrifice by the lion-like roaring and exceptionally large brave Vīrabhadra, Who roared on the witness of all the mundane existence, Who is auspicious, and Who is known as Śambhu.[7]

Continuous salutations for Sadāśiva, Who saved the son of Mṛkaṇḍa (Mārkaṇḍeya) from the daṇḍapāṇi of a Brahmavit philosopher, Who is shared with nectar drops from shining and fragrant flowers, Who is the principle behind all the creation of worlds, properties, wealth and enjoyables, Who is auspicious, and Who is known as Śambhu.[8]

Continuous salutations for Śiva, Whose lotus-feet is routinely offered by Viṣṇu (enemy of Madhu), Brahmā, Indra and other principal demi-gods, Who made Mount Meru as His bow, Who is leader of Mount Rajata, Who is the Lord of Hālāsya, Who is the great Lord, Whose shoulder is adorned by the Hālāhala poison (that came out of ocean-churning), Who is the consort of Goddess Mīnākṣī, and Whose tāṇḍava dance is beautiful.[9]
