Maheshvara Murtham Dhyana Shlokas

(Meditation hymns on the Forms of Lord shiva)

Please see Forms of Lord shiva for the explanation of each of these verses in English with the depictions.

The transliteration of the shlokas are not exact due to the following resons.
1. These shlokas have been put here by transliterating from a tamiz source. Due to the vast difference in character set in thamiz and sa.nskR^itam.h possibility of words misspelt are quite possible.
2. The shlokas for some of the mUrtis are not present as they were missing in the thamiz source that was used for this work. (nIlakaNTar, li.ngodbhavar, sukAsanar).
Help of Sree Hari is the major support behind putting these shlokas in sa.nskR^itam.h from thamiz text and in the translation into English. If you have these shlokas or know it, please send corrections. Also if you can send the meanings for the words missing in the translation or any wrong meaning given, it will be quite useful.
