    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

    Our religion tells us that because we love God Siva, we love one another, for God Siva loves all of us. Our religion tells us that God Siva is like a father and a mother, not a vengeful God, but a God of love who helps us.
