Śiva Aaratī

I adore Śiva, Who is the lord of the everyone, Who is the supreme lord, Who is the lord of Śrīpārvatī, Who is the lord of the world, Who is the lord of snakes (pannaga), Who is Śrīsāmba, Who is Śambhu, Who is eternal bliss, Who is worthy of worship from the three worlds, Who has three eyes, Whose throat is beautiful, and Who is Īśvara.[1]

I adore Īśvara Śiva, Who is the wearer of clothes smeared with ash, Who is the wish-giving tree (pārijāta) for gods, Whose twin-feet are worshipped with the bilva leaves, Who is Soma, Who is the lord of moon, Who is the noble one adorned in the world, Who is Paramātman (Brahman), Who is the blissful Śaṅkara, and Who is the lord of gods.[2]
