Grand are the Himalayas

(1330)  Devatatma himalaya

You are the sacred goddess, Himalaya;
And you reign in glory as monarch of the mountains,
You are ever tranquil, rapt in grandeur.

Snowcapped, you are the self-evident
Home of noble sire, Shiva.[1]
At your feet, by your deliverance,
A million glaciers disperse upon Earth.

From age to age, your head upheld,
You've remained the watchful sentinel.
Vexed by summer's heat, the cloud from ocean
Makes rain fall, with Your compassion.

  1. Once the home of Shiva, inspiration still flows from those mountains.
