waves of bliss

by Jahnabi Barooah

शिव: शक्त्या युक्तो यदि भवति शक्त: प्रभवितुं
न चेदेवं देवो न खलु कुशल: स्पन्दितुमपि ।
अतस्त्वामाराध्यां हरिहरविरिञ्चादिभिरपि
प्रणन्तुं स्तोतुं वा कथमकृतपुण्य: प्रभवति ।।१।।
–सौन्दर्यलहर्याम्

when yoked to the goddess,
śiva prevails over the world.
without her, he can barely move.
o goddess,
when even viṣṇu, śiva, brahma
and other gods worship you,
how can an unworthy person
even dare to praise you or worship you? ||1||
