"Om Namah Shivayae"

Mighty mystic Himalayas,
a great revered Shivalaya.
Lord Shiva’s holy grace,
flows as rivers all over the space.
Rhythm of Lord Shiva’s drum,
every valley sweetly hums.
Lord’s name engraved as “OM”,
sanctifies agni, jal, vayu and vyom.
Tandav ,when Nataraj performs,
whole universe reforms.
You control the tides - high or low,
Oh! Lord Shiva to thee I bow.

    The faith accorded manifests itself in return, miracles and good fortune for the devotees. Great ending Vandana!
