Sayings Of Lord Siva

On hearing the eulogy made by Visnu consisting of the hymn of his thousand divine names Lord Siva became delighted.

Om SriSaiRam

In order to test Visnu, Siva, the lord of the worlds concealed one of the lotus flowers. There was a shortage of one lotus flower from among the thousand lotuses. Hence Visnu was distressed in the course of his worship of Siva. To replenish the last lotus Visnu plucked out his one eye and repeated the last name Sarvasattvavalambana.

Om SriSaiRam

Full of emotion Visnu worshipped and eulogized Siva. On seeing Visnu in that attitude, Siva the preceptor of the universe appeared before him and forbade him do that. Lord Siva descended from the pedestal of that earthen phallic image installed by Visnu.

Om SriSaiRam

Siva said o Visnu, for the achievement of the task of the gods and for the destruction of the Daityas without strain, I shall give the auspicious discus Sudarsana to you. If this discus, this form and this hymn of thousand names is remembered in the battlefield it will quell miseries of the gods.

Om SriSaiRam

There is no doubt that those who recite and teach this hymn will have no misery at all even in dreams.

Om SriSaiRam
