    Translation

    pallavi: Hail , oh Lord Shambhu, one who "self appeared"

    anupallavi: Source of Ganges, Shankara, oh merciful lord who redeems me from this ocean of sorrow, samsAra

    caraNam 1: without gunas, one who is beyond time, past, present and future

    truth beyond gunas(?), beyond all things finite, oh infinite, blissful, wondrous, ever the same lingA

    caraNam 2: This is just the rhythm of the dance of creation and destruction
