Hail Shiva, the destroyer of demon King Tripura. Victory to Lord Shiva who is revered as the master of all dance forms, Nataraja. The celestial snakes adorn Him as garlands. He rides on Nandi, the great bull. We bow at His Lotus Feet seeking solace as He is the Supreme Form with the third eye who grants succor to the whole creation. We bow to Lord Shankara. Protect us O Lord Mahesha.
