Sloka for the day

Sloka on Sri Siva – from the Siva Taandava stotram

जटाटवीगलज्जलप्रवाहपावितस्थले
गलेऽवलम्ब्य लम्बितां भुजङ्गतुङ्गमालिकाम् ।
डमड्डमड्डमड्डमन्निनादवड्डमर्वयं
चकार चण्डताण्डवं तनोतु नः शिवः शिवम् ॥१॥

Jatãtavigalajjala-pravãha-pavitasthale
Gale’avalambya lambitãm bhujanga-tungamãlikãm |
Damad-damad-damad-damanninãdavangdamarvayam
Chakãra chanda-tandavam tanotu nah šivah šivam ||1||

From the forest of his matted lock, water flows and wets his neck,
on which hangs the greatest of snake like a garland,
and his drum incessantly plays damad, damang, damad, damad,
and Šiva is engaged in the very vigorous manly dance,
to bless and shower prosperity on all of us.
