In order to assure
ourselves that any and all evil tendencies are removed from the
worship room, we start with a prayer to Shiva whose very invocation
is believed to clear out any troubling vibrations.
I salute the Lord of
the Southern direction who is the very embodiment of the sacred
symbol Om and of pure knowledge and eternal peace.
At this point someone
familiar with the proper intonations of that powerful bhajan
Brahmamuraarisuraarchitha lingam, could lead the assembled.
