“I surrender myself to Lord Shiva, who has three eyes, who is as pleasurable as sweet-smelling incense, and who gives vitality to the devotee to perform devotional service. Just like cucumber is freed from its stem naturally, be merciful upon me and release me from the shackles of death, not from immortality.”
