Meaning of the Prayer Song:
Oh Divine! We are going to firmly ascertain
that Namaskaram is to be done only to You by the men
through the Namaskarams told in the Vedas.
Even when there are stray ones said for the divines,
like the rivers that reach the ocean, those all reach You!
1. avadhAraya - ascertain; srOtAMsi - rivers.
2. srOtAMsi sAgara iva tvayi saMpatanti
All the Namaskarams ultimately reaches Lord Shiva only.
Lord Shiva is the One, Who energizes everyone from divines
to humans to any life to act. Without His Grace even the
king of divines the Indra would be unable to act. This is
established firmly by the Kenopanishad.
