The Thousand Names of Shiva

by Lalita Arya

The heavy but mellifluous voice
Flowed in cadences of metrical rhythm
As the thousand names of Shiva
Chanted by the Swami blanketed the audience
Like a cloud messenger on its way to Kailaash.

At times it rose as if broadcast
And at times it sunk to the quiet
Of meditative mode
Encircling the devotees
Into a mesmerizing lull.

As ever the voice, the same
The health though hesitant
The Swami with determination
Called on Shiva to hear
His appellations to the end.

Shiva Ratri – the Night of Shiva, on listening to Swami Veda Bharati reciting the 1000 names of Shiva.
