I always contemplate upon Lord Arunachalanatha, who is in the company of Apitakuchamba.
His lotus feet bestow total salvation, even from just remembering them. He is knowledge and bliss, shining like crores of suns. He is the embodiment of sentiments such as mercy, etc. A host of celestials has sought refuge in Him.
He is of the form of extraordinarily lustrous Linga, and holds a marvellous deer in His hand. He is like the bee hovering over the lotus-like Aparna-Parvati. He is seated on a majestic bull. He especially dwells in the hearts of noble Bhusuras. He is very much attached to brave Guruguha. He wears Ganga on His glorious head, and has conquered the moon, the sun and the fire with His natural brilliance.
