संसारसारम् भुजगेन्द्रहारम् ।
भवं भवानीसहितं नमामि ॥

Meaning: The one who is the essence of the whole creation. The one with the serpent king as his garland.
Meaning: Hridaya aravinde means ‘in heart’ (pure in form of lotus). Lotus, however, is born in dirty water, even the mud around it does not affect it. In the same way, Lord Shiva always (always) lives (spring) in the heart of creatures, so that no one is affected by world affairs.
