Shivananda Lahari (IAST Śivānanda Lahiri) is a devotional hymn composed by Adi Shankara, the 8th-century Advaita philosopher, on Shiva.[1] It literally means Wave of Auspicious Bliss. It consists of one hundred stanzas of Sanskrit poetry in various chandas (metres). It was composed by Adi Shankara while staying in Srisailam, a pilgrimage town, in Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh. It begins with an ode to Mallikarjuna and Bhramarambika, the deities at Srisailam.[2][3]
