Śoṇādrināthāṣṭakam

Salutations for Śiva, Who is the Lord (situated) on Mount Śoṇādri, Who is eternal bliss, Who is Rudra, Who is honored by Goddess Śivā, Who is noble, Who is the supreme Lord, Who is Soma, Who is subtle, and Who is the Lord of demi-gods.[1]

Salutations for Śiva, Who is the Lord (situated) on Mount Śoṇādri, Who is the Lord of Dikpati, Who is without emotions, Whose forehead has a crescent moon, Who is eternal, and Who is the liberator from the ocean of worldly-grief.[2]

Salutations for Śiva, Who is the Lord (situated) on Mount Śoṇādri, Who is residing in the entire world, Who is the Lord of senāpati (commanders), Who bestows victory, Who is complete, Who is virtuous, and Who is primordial.[3]

Salutations for Śiva, Who is the Lord (situated) on Mount Śoṇādri, Who is worshipped by Vāgīśa (scholars), Who is the bestower of boons, Whose half-form is taken by Umā, Who is the Lord of tormentors, and Whose three eyes are the Moon, the Sun and the Fire.[4]

Salutations for Śiva, Who is the Lord (situated) on Mount Śoṇādri, Who is seated on a ratha (chariot), Who is supportable of rasa, Who is associated with Vedāśva, Who is worshipped by Lord Brahmā, Whose cakra consists of the Moon and the Sun, and Whose resplendence is like that of moon.[5]

Salutations for Śiva, Who is the Lord (situated) on Mount Śoṇādri, Who has established Viriñci as a charioteer, Whose bow is Mount Mandara, Who is the Lord of Himālaya, Whose third eye is full of fire, and Who is the Lord of Nāga.[6]

Salutations for Śiva, Who is the Lord (situated) on Mount Śoṇādri, Whose arrow is Viṣṇu (Govinda), Who is the triad of quality, Who is the Lord of the entire world, Whose flag has a bull on it, and Who is skilled in the destruction of Purāsura.[7]

Salutations for Śiva, Who is the Lord (situated) on Mount Śoṇādri, Who is devoid of old-age and other afflictions, Who has matted hairs, Whose form cannot be ascertained, Who is dear to Hari, and Who is the destroyer of the conglomerate of sins of devotees.[8]

Wise men and everyone should study and serve this eulogy of Lord of Mount Śoṇācala — eulogy which is the bestower of all siddhi, which is the bestower of all affluences.[9]
