Devotees and followers of Sri Gurudev Sivananda
in South Africa and elsewhere, follow Gurudev's invariable
custom of commencing all functions with the following
invocatory Kirtans, and concluding them with
the peace chants that follow.

MEDITATION ON LORD SHIVA
S haant am p adm aas an as t h aru s h as hadh a rama ktt t am
p anc havaktram trine tram,
Shoolam vajram cha khadgam parashumabhayadam
dalcshinaange v ahantam ;
Naagam paasham cha ghantaam damaruka sahitam
chaankus ham vaamabhaage,
Naanaalankaara de eptam sphatika maninibham
paarvatees ham namaami.
MEANING: I prostrate myself before the five-faced
Lord of Parvati, who is adorned with various ornaments,
who shines like the crystal jewel, who is seated peacefully
in the lotus pose, with moon-crested crown, with
three eyes, wearing trident, thunderbolt, sword and axe
on the right side, who holds the serpent, noose, bell,
damaru and spear on the left side, and who gives protection
from all fear to His devotees.
MEDITATION ON SRI SHANKARACHARYA
P ad m aas e enam pr as h an t ant y am anirat am aan an gaari

MEANING: I meditate on Sri Shankaracharya who
is seated in the lotus posture with Jnanamudra, who is
calm, endowed with virtues like Yama, Niyama, etc.,
whose glory is as great as that of Lord Shiva, who wears
the sacred ashes on the forehead, whose face resembles
the blossomed lotus, with lotus-like eyes, possessing sacred
books in hand, who is ever adored by people of
high learning and wisdom, and who fulfils the desires of
his devotees (who prostrate themselves before him).
MEDITATION ON LORD DATTATREYA
Maalaakamandalu dharah karapadmayugme
Madhyastha paaniyugale damarutrishoolam ;
A d hy as th a ur dhv a kar ay o h s hub h a s h an kh a c h a kr e
Vande tamatrivaradam bhuj ashatkayuktam -
MEANING: I meditate on Lord Dattatreya, the son
of Atri, who has six hands, who holds the rosary and water-
vessel in two hands, with damaru and spear in the
other two hands, and with conch and discus in the upper
two hands.
