Who is as white as the flame of camphor,
Who wears uncombed and uncut hair.

Who is the darling of Goddess Parvathy,

Who wears the king of serpents as bangles,
Who carries the Ganga on his head,
And who killed the king of elephants.

I salute that Shiva who burns the sorrow of poverty,
Who is loved by his devotees,

And who is personification of darkness.

And who is the king of all worlds.
