Kailas-shikhrastham Cha Parvati-patimuttamam
Vishnu-Brahmanutam Sada Bhaktavatsalamanandam Shivamavahayamyaham.
"I invoke that Shambhu Shiva, who dwells on
the summit of Kailas, is the consort of Goddess Parvati, and
is the most exalted among all deities, who has been truly described
by the Shastras, who is manifest in attributes although beyond
attributes, whose greatness has been sung by the Vedas and the
Shastras, who is ever praised even by Vishnu and Brahma, who
is Himself the ultimate Bliss, and who is tender to his devotees."
