Shiva Shivaa Sthuthi

From Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia

By Lord Subrahmanya

Translated By P.R.Ramachander

This prayer to Shiva and Parvathi is found in the Shiva Rahasya. It first narrates the story of Lord Subrahmanya getting upset for not being given the divine mango in spite of his going around the world. Later Lord Subrahmanya realizes his mistake and sings this prayer addressed to his parents.
