Lord Shiv taught Parvati completely,
Vedanta - unmatched knowledge fully,
Cosmological knowledge gave Parvati,
Thus both are the perfect of the yogis.
Balance between male and female but be,
When partners complement each other fully,
To form an ultimate oneness unquestionably,
Which the real source of all creation does be.
His son Ganesh, Remover of Obstacles be,
Lord of Beginnings and of Obstacles truly,
His other son Kartikeya by many names be,
Well known are Murugan and Skanda surely.
