Verses in praise of Lord Siva.

Cited by Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj

devadi-devam ahi-bhusanam indu-kasham
panchananam pasupatim varadam prasannam
gangadharam pranata-palakam asutosam
vande sadasiva-haripriya-chandramaulim
(Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj)

“The god of gods, garlanded with a snake, shines like the moon, which he wears on his crown. He has five heads, carries his pasupat arrow, grants boons, and is naturally satisfied. He holds the Ganges, protects those who bow to him, and is easily pleased. I offer my obeisance unto Sadasiva, who is dear to Hari.”

nimna-ganam yatha ganga devanam achyuto yatha
vaisnavanam yatha sambhuh purananam idam tatha
(Srimad Bhagavatam: 12.13.16)

“As the Ganges is the greatest river, Achyuta the greatest Deity, and Siva the greatest Vaisnava, so Srimad Bhagavatam is the greatest Purana.”

dhyayen nityam mahesam rajata-giri-nibham charu-chandravatamsam
ratnakalpojjvalangam parasu-mriga-varabhiti-hastam prasannam
padmasinam samantat stutam amara-ganair vyaghra-kritim vasanam
visvadyam vishva-bijam nikhila-bhaya-haram pancha-vaktram trinetram
(Siva-purana: 1.20.52)

“Always meditate upon Siva, the greatest of the gods. His body shines like a jewel and resembles a silver mountain. He has three eyes on each of his five faces, which are beautifully crowned by the moon. With his four hands, he holds his axe and a deer and forms the mudras for granting blessings and fearlessness. He is satisfied as he sits in the lotus posture on a tiger skin and is praised by immortals on all sides. He is the origin and seed of the world, and he dispels all fear.”

vrndavanavani-pate jaya soma soma-
maule sanandana-sanatana-naradedya
gopisvara vraja-vilasa-yuganghri-padme
pritim prayachchha nitaram nirupadhikam me
(Sri Sankalpa-kalpadruma: 103)

“O protector of Vrndavan Dham! O master of Uma, whose crown is the moon! O Siva, you are worshipped by Sananda, Sanatan, and Narad! All glory to you! O guardian of the gopis! Give me firm, unalloyed devotion to the lotus feet of the Divine Couple who play in Vraja.”
