O generous soul! O Supreme Being

Story Play (Attakkatha): 
O generous soul! O Supreme Being!
I bow before you always, O Gouri’s partner!
O Creator, Protector and Destroyer
the power on the other side of the mortal world
You are the Sun for the Lotus that are sages’ hearts
the power that destroys evil again and again
The power that saved Markendeya from death
I pray to you, O God who showers largesse
