एकैश्वर्ये स्थितोऽपि प्रणतबहुफले यः स्वयं कृत्तिवासाः कान्तासंमिश्रदेहोऽप्यविषयमनसां यः परस्ताद्यतीनाम्।
अष्टाभिर्यस्य कृत्स्नम् जगदपि तनुभिर्बिभ्रतो नाभिमानः सन्मार्गालोकनाय व्यपनयतु स वस्तामसीं वृत्तिमीशः॥ १॥
The Lord, though endowed with magnificent powers that bestows manifold fruits to his devotees, is himself clad only in an elephant-hide; though his body is united with his beloved (Pārvatī). He is yet the foremost of the ascetics, whose mind is unaffected by the sense-objects (of desire); though He supports the entire universe with His eight forms, He is yet devoid of pride (or arrogance). Let (that) Lord Śiva dispel your tendency of tamas (darkness, ignorance) to behold the righteous path.
