13 and 14th Verses of Shri Shiv Tandava Stotram

Verse 13

Kada nilampa nirjhari nikunjakotare vasan

Vimuktadurmatih sada shirastha manjali vahan |

Vilola lolaochano lalambhalla lagnakah:

Shiveti mantramuccharan kada sukhi bhavamyaham ||13||

On which day will I stripped of wrongful desires, reside in seclusion on the supremely holy banks of the river Ganges,with hollowed hands placed together and raised to the forehead in salutation. When I will be forever ecstatic by chanting this mantra (incantation) of

Lord Shiva who was attained by the capricious-eyed Parvati, the Supreme Goddess and a gem amongst women, by great good fortune.

Verse 14

Imam hi nitya meva mottamam stvam

Pathansmaranbru vannaro vishudhameti santatam

Hare gurau subhaktimashu, yatinanyatha gatim

Vimohanam hi dchinam Sushankarasya chintanam ||14||

Lord Shiva as the Supreme Guru

The person who religiously reads the Shiv Tandava Stotram recited above and worships Lord Shiva everyday, will become absolutely pure and attain dedicated devotion for Shiva, the highest form of a Guru or spiritual preceptor, and he will never have to face any misfortune. Meditating upon Lord Shankar in this manner releases us from illusion or works for the good and well-being of living beings in every possible way.
