Glory to Lord Shankara, who bears the Holy Ganges in His hair and whose consort is Goddess Girija, born of the mountains. Glory to the One, who is the Lord of Lords and who has conquered death and whose Feet confer auspiciousness. Glory to the One who rides the bull, Nandi. Glory to the One who has a cobra around His neck. Glory to the One who is the embodiment of unparalleled virtues. Hail the enchanting dancer, the blue-throated Shiva who is none other than Sai and whose eyes are like the petals of the lotus.
