shivastavaH Lyrics in English:

SHIVASTUTI. It is known that many centuries ago India had trade and cultural links with the far eastern nations. We could see evidences of this fact even today in these countries. There are Hindu temples. Hindu festivals are celebrated. People know our puranas and epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata. The temples there contain inscriptions that contain hymns on Hindu gods and goddesses. A hymn on Shiva found in Bali, an island near Java is given below along with some other verses on Shiva.
