O Lord akshayalinga( The undiminishing). The self-manifested. The Lord of the crores of universes. Protect me, O creator of auspiciousness.
The form of the letters.The one of boundless glory. The one who rides on a bull. The one who captivates the universe.
The one who punished Daksha. The one who expertly protects the Devas.The one who defied definition when Brahma tried to find him.The one well-versed in grammar and literature.The one who swallowed nectar. The one who bestows the grace of the guru.
The one who is with Bhadrakali the Goddess of Badari Vana.The one meant for devotees. The one respected by Vishnu the father of Manmatha.
The one who is free of the activities of Maya.The one who is the father of the compassionate guruguha (shanmukha).The one who has countless good qualities. The one beyond qualities.The one known to sages. The auspicious. The one whose heart melts like butter.
Hemagirinatha. The one born out of HrmkAra. The one praised by Tumburu's music.
The one who is always like the celestial wish-yielding tree to his devotees. The one with lotus-feet. The one who is known as Bhava as he helps cross the ocean of samsara. The one who has the chariot, the elephant and the infantry. The one who has the temple festival in the month of Chitra. Sadashiva.
The one who is the essence of knowledge-existence and bliss.
