    प्रजापतय ऊचुः देवदेव महादेव भूतात्मन् भूतभावन । त्राहि नः शरणापन्नांस्त्रैलोक्यदहनाद्विषात् ।‌। ८-७-२१ ।।

    The prajāpatis said: O greatest of all demigods, Mahādeva, Supersoul of all living entities and cause of their happiness and prosperity, we have come to the shelter of your lotus feet. Now please save us from this fiery poison, which is spreading all over the three worlds. ।‌। 8-7-21 ।।

    त्वमेकः सर्वजगत ईश्वरो बन्धमोक्षयोः । तं त्वामर्चन्ति कुशलाः प्रपन्नार्तिहरं गुरुम् ।‌। ८-७-२२ ।।

    O lord, you are the cause of bondage and liberation of the entire universe because you are its ruler. Those who are advanced in spiritual consciousness surrender unto you, and therefore you are the cause of mitigating their distresses, and you are also the cause of their liberation. We therefore worship Your Lordship. ।‌। 8-7-22 ।।

  5. 25

    त्वं शब्दयोनिर्जगदादिरात्मा प्राणेन्द्रियद्रव्यगुणस्वभावः । कालः क्रतुः सत्यमृतं च धर्मस्त्वय्यक्षरं यत्त्रिवृदामनन्ति ।। ८-७-२५ ।।

    O lord, you are the original source of Vedic literature. You are the original cause of material creation, the life force, the senses, the five elements, the three modes and the mahat-tattva.

You are the shelter of the syllable om, which consists of three letters a-u-m. ।‌। 8-7-25 ।।
