Akshaya Linga Vibho
By Muthuswami Deekshithar
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
[This extols the Akshayalinga at Kivalur in Tamil Nadu where there is a festival in Chithra month.]
Talam: Mishra Chapu
Akshaya Linga vibho, swayambho,
Akhilanda koti prabho, Pahi Shambho
Oh eternal Lord in the form of Linga, who was born of his own,
Who is the Lord of all the crores of universes, protect me, Oh Shambhu.
Akshara swaroopa, amitha prathapa,
Aarooda vrusha vaha, jagat moha,
Daksha sikshana daksha tara sura lakshana,
Vidhi vilakshana, lakshya lakshana,
Bahu vichakshana, Sudha bhakshana.
Guru Kadaksha veekshana.
Oh God with imperishable form who has extraordinary fame,
Who rides on his bull steed, who attracts the world,
Who punished Daksha, who with seriousness protects the devas,
Who does not bother about fate, who has great knowledge
In grammar and literature, who consumed nectar,
And one grants us the sight of the Guru.
1. Badarivana moola nayika sahita,
Bhadrakaleesa bhaktha vihitha,
Madana janakadhi deva mahitha,
Maya Karya kalana rahitha.
He who is with the main goddess of Badri forest,
Who is lord of Bhadra Kali, who is partial to his devotees,
Who is worshipped by father of god of love and other devas,
And who does not indulge in activities of illusion.
2. Sadhaya guru guha thatha, gunatheetha,
Sadhu janopetha, Sankara,
Navanita hrudaya, vibhatha dumburu sangeetha,
Hreemkara sambhootha, Hema Giri Natha.
One who is father of the merciful Guru Guha, who is beyond good qualities,
Who is approached by saints, who is Sankara,
Who has butter like melting heart, who shines forth in Dumburu's music,
Who was born with the sound of Hreem and who is the Lord of golden mountain.
3. Sada asritha kalpaka mahi ruha,
Padambuja bhava ratha, gaja, thuraga,
Padathi samyuktha chaithrothsava,
Sadashiva sat chith ananda maya.
He who is always a wish giving tree to his devotees,
Who has a lotus feet, who is prosperity, who has chariots, elephants, horses,
And also infantry and who celebrates festival in the Chithra month,
Who is ever peaceful and who is pervaded with truth, divinity and joy.
