Morning prayer to Shiva
From Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Shiva is one of the Trimurthies in charge of destruction. He lives on Mount Kailasa and wears an elephants skin as shawl and the crescent moon on his head. He is the abode of peace and rides on Nandi the bull.
