I bow before that sada-Shiva, which is lavishly smeared with variegated perfumes and scents,
which elevates the power of thought and enkindles the light of discriminations and before which
the Siddhas, the Suras and Asuras prostrate.
I bow before that sada-Shiva, the destroyer of Daksha's sacrifice, which is decorated with
various ornaments, studded with different gems and rubies and which glows with garland of the
serpent Lord coiled around it.
