Living with Śiva



Old and Gray

Attain your prime; then welcome old age, striving by turns in the contest of life. May the Ordainer, maker of good things, be pleased to grant you length of days! Keen of mind and keen of sight, free from sickness, free from sin, rich in children, may we see you rise as a friend, O Sun, till a long life’s end! §

Ṛig Veda 10.18.6 &10.37.7. VE, P. 609; 319§
