    मन्दारमाला कलितालकायै कपालमालाङ्कितकन्धराय । दिव्याम्बरायै च दिगम्बराय नमः शिवायै च नमः शिवाय ॥ ५॥

    I bow to the form In which the hair of Goddess Parvati is decorated with the garland of Hibiscus flowers and the neck of the God Shiva is adorned with the garland of skulls O the extraordinary form in which the goddess side is with the great garments, while the other half of God Shiva is without any clothing I bow to you, Goddess Parvathi and God Shiva in the form of Ardhanareeswara ।। 5 ।।
