(Meaning of dhyāna verse for easy contemplation)

I meditate upon Śiva, who is serene, sitting in padmāsana, adoring a crown studded with rays of the moon, having five faces and three eyes, having on His right side a spear, a thunderbolt,  cavalry sword, a hatchet and abhaya mudra (dispelling fear). On His left side, He is having a snake, a noose, a bell, fire that is capable of destroying the universe and a hook. He is adorned with various gems, jewels and dress. He is appearing like a crystal beads. I bow unto this Great Śiva, Consort of Goddess Pārvatī.
