11th and 12th Verses of Shri Shiv Tandava Stotram

Verse 11
Jayatvadabhravibhrama bhramadbhujangamasafur
Dhigdhigdhi nirgamatkarala bhaal havyavat
Dhimiddhimiddhimidhva nanmrudangatungamangala
Dhvanikramapravartita prachanda tandavah shivah II11II

The Terrifying Tandava of Lord Shiva

I hail Lord Siva who is proficient in the terrifying tandava dance in pace with the ascending scale of the mridanga which makes the auspicious sound of dhimid dhimid, and the fire blazing on whose forehead has become extremely fearsome due to the exhaled breaths of snakes slithering speedily.

Verse 12
Drishadvvichitra talpayor-bhujangmaukti kasrajo -
Rgarishtha ratna loshtayon: Shuridwipakaha pakshyoh: |
Trinar vindachachakshushoh: Prajamahee mahendra yoh:
Sama pravritikah: kada sada Shivam bhajamyaham || 12 ||

Sadashiva, the Cosmic Form of Lord Shiva

When will I worship Lord Sadashiva while viewing the common people and emperors, a lump of clay and valuable precious stones, a snake and a string of pearls, a stone-hearted and a lovingly tender person with equality in this strange world of varied ways.
