Vande Deva Uma Patim Sur-Guroom Vande Jagat Kaaranam
Vande Pan-Nag Bhooshanam Mrigdharam Vande Pashunaam Patim
Vande Soorya Shashaanka Vanhi-Nayanam Vande Mukunda Priyam
Vande Bhakti-Janaa-Shrayam Ch Vardam Vande Shivam Shankaram
My obeisance to Lord Shiva, who is the spouse of Uma, who is the supreme among the Gods, who is the primordial cause of the Universe. Obeisance to Lord Shiva whose ornaments are the serpent and the moon, who is the Lord of all animals and whose eyes are the Sun, moon and fire. Obeisance to Shankar who is the beloved of Mukund and who is the benefactor and the refuge of all devotees.
Om Namah Shivaaya
