Oh Lord SAMBHO! Please protect me forever, You, who
destroyed the form of Cupid.
Please show a little mercy and alleviate my sufferings.
You wielded MANDARA mountain as a bow; father of GANESA; expert in bestowing
the desired boons on your devotees. Adored by CUPIDS, you are adorned
with crescent moon. You are the daughter of snow clad mountains. Your
dark hued neck is adorned with serpents as garland. Oh conqueror of
You protected MARKANDEYA, the son of MRKANDU, from the misery of being
encircled by the noose of death and punished the Lord of death also.
Oh bestower of boons! The third eye adds beauty to your forehead. Your
form is smeared with sacred ashes. You sport a Trident and a battle axe
in your hands. You have the handsome sacred bull for your vehicle.
Oh SRIKANTESVARA! Did you not drink the dreadful poison-KALAKUTA-that
emerged when the churning of the milky ocean had taken place? A host
of names of VISHNU-the SAHASRANAMA is made more effective by you. Lord
PADMANABHA, worshipped by INDRA, also has the glory of your service.
