സ്വാമിയേ ശരണമയ്യപ്പാ

പൊന്ന് പതിനെട്ടാം പടിയേയ്

സ്വാമിയില്ലാതൊരു ശരണം ഇല്ലയ്യപ്പാ

ഹരി ഹര സുതനേ

ശരണം പൊന്നയ്യപ്പാ

സ്വാമിയേയ് ശരണമയ്യപ്പ

Shivaratri – ശിവരാത്രി

കുംഭ മാസത്തിലെ കൃഷ്ണപക്ഷത്തിലെ പതിമൂന്നാം രാത്രിയും പതിനാലാം പകലുമാണ് ശിവരാത്രി ആഘോഷിക്കുന്നത്. ഫാല്‍ഗുന മാസത്തിലെ കറുത്തപക്ഷ ത്രയോദശിയാണ് നാം ഇപ്രകാരം ആചരിച്ചു പോരുന്നത്. പ്രദോഷ സമയത്ത് ശിവന്‍ തന്റെ ആനന്ദനടനമാടുന്നുവെന്നാണ് പഴമക്കാരുടെ സങ്കല്‍പ്പം. ശിവന്റെ താണ്ഡവനൃത്തം പൂര്‍ണ്ണമാകുന്ന ദിനമത്രേ, ശിവരാത്രി.
