Shiva, the Compassionate One, helps and guides His devotees in their journey of life. The Shivalingam is the symbol of the Absolute, formless God, the Parabrahmam, and this symbol makes the intangible Parabrahmam tangible. Shiva is sometimes portrayed as the ‘destroyer’. This is only one of His many facets that is brought forth to protect His devotee and to quell the rising tide of evil, so that life and goodness may regenerate again. Here, we present slokas that describe His many auspicious qualities.
We believe that the power of reciting these slokas is enhanced, when the meaning of the verses is understood in the correct context. Here, we bring you the meaning of the verses, with additional details when required, to start one’s journey towards the goal of understanding the sloka. Audio of the meaning is provided in English and Tamil, so that we understand its meaning in the language that we are most comfortable with. The sloka script is also provided in Devanagari, Tamil and transliterated English.
Our sloka audio is designed to help the User in correct diction and pronunciation. The tune, with no instruments, makes the sloka recitation easier.

Why App Format?
We want to bring slokas and their meaning to the interested User in a format that is convenient, is always available, is private and personalized. Given the hectic pace of our schedule-driven life, we feel that the desire to understand and learn the slokas should not be hampered by the lack of availability of the resources in the right format, at any time and any place, when the User needs it the most. The current App technology and its extensions best allows us to meet these goals.
