Nagendra haraya Trilochanaya,
Basmanga ragaya maheswaraya,
Nithyaya shudhaya digambaraya,
Tasmai nakaraya namashivaya.
My salutations to the letter ‘Na’ , which is Shiva, Who wears as garland the king of snakes.
Who has three eyes, Who wears ash all over Him,
Who is the greatest Lord, Who is forever, Who is the cleanest,
And who wears the directions themselves as dress.
MAY WE ALL BE BLESSED WITH THE DIVINE POWER OF THE GREAT LORD RUDRA..
Here is a compilation of Divine Krithies rendered by the legends on Lord Shiva on the occassion of Mahasivarathri today.
