Can you not keep chanting Shiva, Shiva, Shiva,
And get rid of problems of life and fears.
1. After cutting out lust and passion,
After leaving attraction for otherís women and wealth,
After leaving out the life of simple ignorance,
With great diligence worship Shiva with Bilwa leaves.
2. After seeking the company of good people,
And worshipping them as Lord Shiva of the three worlds,
After completely leaving out shyness,
With great devotion worship the god in the lotus of your heart,
3. After learning Vedas and,
After avoiding speech which is not good
After spending time with learned men,
Tell the names of Shiva, who is worshipped by Thyagaraja.
