I bow to that camphor-hued, white complexioned Lord Shiva, who is incarnation of compassion.
Who is the very essence of consciousness; the Knowing principle of life (of the embodied soul)
Who wears snakes as garlands, who always resides in the hearts of his devotees
I bow to Lord Shiva and His consort Bhavaani (Uma or Parvati).
