vibhum vyapakam brahma-veda-svaroopam
nijam nirgunam nirvikalpam niriham
chidakasha makasha-vasam bhaje ham
nirakara monkara-moolam turiyam
gira gnana gotita misham girisham
karalam maha-kala-kalam krpalam
gunagara samsara param nato ham
tusha radri-sankasha-gauram gabhiram
manobhuta-koti prabha sri sariram
lasad-bhala-balendu kanthe bhujanga
chalatkundalam bhru sunetram visalam
prasanna-nanam nila-kantham dayalam
mrgadhisa charmambaram mundamalam
priyam sankaram sarvanatham bhajami
pracandam prakrstam pragalbham paresham
akhandam ajam bhanukoti-prakasam
bhaje ham bhavani-patim bhava-gamyam
sada sajjana-nanda-data purarih
prasida praslda prabho manmatharih
na yavad umanatha-padaravindam
bhajantiha loke pareva naranam
na tavat-sukham shanti-santapa-nasham
praslda prabho sarva bhuta-dhivasam
na janami yogam japam naiva pujam
nato ham sada sarvada sambhu tubhyam
jara janma-duhkhaugha tatapya manam
prabho pahi apan-namamisha shambho
