3 Eyed Mercy - Poem by Abhay Vignesh Liginlal

I bow before you lord Shiva
O supreme and cosmic truth,
I bow before you lord tryambaka 1
O mighty 3 eyed deity,
I salute you lord somashekhara 2
Bearer of the crescent moon;

Hail him mankind
For he is Neelakanta 3
Who stores fatal poison in his throat
And wears the dreaded serpent on his neck,
Endowed with matted hair
Which bears the sacred ganges
He holds the three gunas 4
Sattva 5, rajas6 and thamas 7;

He is the great lord of yogis
Who sits couched on tiger skin and subdued lust
Hail him for he is Nataraja 8, the master of thandava 9
The last chant in times book.



1. Tryambaka - trya -three, ambaka-eye
2. Somashekhara- Soma-nectar Shekhara- crest
