The devotional lotuses are abloom in the lake of love :
For showering the flower petals on Shiv Shanker.

The Devtasand Karans bless us with Amrit
Our abodes are turned into Vaikuntha :
For showering the flower petals on Rameshwar.

Our Pilgrimage starts, resultant of past good deeds :
All the boons of pilgrimage are bestowed on Kashmir :
For showering the flower petals on Mukhteshwar.

Bathe him, he being the first in the lineage :
This bearer Haland Mosal with waters of Ganesh Bal;
For showering flower petals on Lambhodar.

Which is equally sacred as Koti-Tirtha;

To offer flowers to Shiv at Shiva;

My salutation at the feet of all the three of them;

In Sunda BrariI offer my existence to Shyam Sunder;
For showering the flower petals on Pitambhar.

12. Filling the Thaliwith Kheer & Khand;
I wish to feed him with my own hands with love;
In Neela Nagthe Neela Kantha Dighambhar;
For showering the flower petals on Neelambhar.

My Salutation at the feet of all the Devas;

All my sins and curses will vanish at Shapa Mochan;
By surrendering the self to Kapala Mala Dhar;

Pitcher, Broom, Grinding-Mill,
Firmament & Latch;
Came out and Sang praises of
your Venerableness;
Shankracharya accepted your
powers as Param-Shakti;
The Haari of Hari Parhat.
Recognising you as Shiva's Shakti of Universe;
With folded hands he prayed to you, to bestow your
benevolence on him;
He took you away on his shoulders
through Kishtawar.
The Haari of Hari Parbat. (Translation by T. N. Wachoo)
