Meaning of Devadi Deva Sada Shiva
Substance of the song:
O Lord Who is the Origin of everything! O Supreme Lord Sadashiva Who has the Sun (Lord of the day), the Moon and Fire as Your (three) Eyes!
O Lord elusive to even Indra – who is Lord to the celestials – and Brahma – the Grand Father! O Lord for Whom tranquility and other virtues are adornments! Beloved of Parvati!
You are verily Lord Bhava, wearing the digit of the Moon; with the blue throat; Who appears as if a billion suns have arisen together!
O Lord praised by Vishnu – Consort of Lakshmi – please deign to bestow on me devotion to Thy Holy Feet, Benefactor of the humble; Lord with a smiling Face; the Lord worshipped by Tyagaraja
