Dakshinamurthy Navarathna malika stotram
(Sengalipuram mentions that it is composed by Nava Nadha Sidhar, There is no reference to the garland of nine gems in the prayer and so possibly each stotra was written by one Sidhar of the nine great Sidhas )
1.Moole vatasya muni pungava sevyamanam,
Mudhra visesha mukuli krutha Pani padmam,
Manda smitham madhura vesha mudhara maadhyam,
Thejasthadasthu hrudhi may tharunendu choodam.
1.Let our mind be filled with the God who wears the crescent,

Who has a lotus like hand showing the great seak of wisdom,
Who is smiling, having a sweet form and is the primeval one.
2.Chandraorkopama kanthi kundala daram chandravadathaam shukham,
