I am protected by Anandeshvarena, and hence am of the nature of eternal joy, and of the form of supreme bliss, Brahman.
The Lord of the form of Guruguha, who bestows knowledge, He is knowledge which is eternal bliss and is self-luminous.
He is beyond the three stages of bodies and eternal existence: gross, subtle, and causal. He is the witness to the three states: waking, dreaming, and deep sleep. He is pure. He transcends the five Kosas constituting the world, as well as the three types of miseries. He is knowledge. He is Shiva, who is of the form of Sat Cit Ananda, existence knowledge bliss, and is free. Hearing, thinking, meditating on Him with concentration, one will have the experience of directly visualizing Him within oneself. He is Maheshvara, the effulgent one.

I offer my prayers to Lord Arddhanarishvara incessantly. He is surrounded by a host of eminent sages, such as Atri, Bhrigu, and Vasishta.
He has the glory of being exceptionally decorated during the time of Arddha Jama worship. He delights Arddhanarishvari. He is Shiva, offering refuge to his devotees.
He is adorned with the precious gem Nagendramani, and is mounted upon the sacred bull. He is worshipped by the prosperous Guruguha, and is extolled by the melody of Kumudakriya. He is praised by all the Agamas, and is proclaimed by all the Vedas. He is venerated by Indra and others, and his form shines with the red hue.

I always contemplate upon Lord Arunachalanatha, who is in the company of Apitakuchamba.
His lotus feet bestow total salvation, even from just remembering them. He is knowledge and bliss, shining like crores of suns. He is the embodiment of sentiments such as mercy, etc. A host of celestials has sought refuge in Him.
He is of the form of extraordinarily lustrous Linga, and holds a marvellous deer in His hand. He is like the bee hovering over the lotus-like Aparna-Parvati. He is seated on a majestic bull. He especially dwells in the hearts of noble Bhusuras. He is very much attached to brave Guruguha. He wears Ganga on His glorious head, and has conquered the moon, the sun and the fire with His natural brilliance.

Oh mind, meditate on Shri Somaskanda, seated under the mango tree.
He is eternal. He is uninterrupted Saccidananda. He has the lotus feet captable of bestowing Samrajya.
He has an auspicious face, and lives in Kanchi, which is like the precious gems Carbuncle-Manikya. His body's splendor surpasses that of Cupid. One who destroyed the Antaka, his teeth are like jasmine buds. He has the beautiful, tall bull as His vehicle, is Bhairavi's beloved, and stays in the inner self of Guruguha. He manifests as Prithavilinga.
