Viswanath Ashtakam by www.jothishi.com ! Varanasi - Kashi Ashtakam ! Shiva Stuthi !
Greetings from https://www.jothishi.com.
Om Namah Shivaya. This Song is dedicated to All the "Shiva Bhakts" and Presenting The "VishwanathAshTakam" composed by Sri Adi Shankaracharya According to Hindu mythology, Varanasi was founded by Lord Shiva.
This city also known as Kashi or Benaras, is one of the 7 sacred cities of India. It has a special sanctity, this is where Lord Shiva and his consort Parvati stood when time started ticking for the first time in this Universe.
The Ganges is a sacred river for Hindus, and any town or city on its bank is believed to be auspicious. Hindus believe that a person if breaths his last in Kashi, is blessed with eternal salvation, thus freed from the tormenting cycle of birth and death.
In this VishwanathAshtakam, the holy city of Varanasi is described in Rig Veda as Shiv ki Nagri (city of Shiva) with the beautiful waves of sacred river Ganga, thus becomes an adored location for all the followers of "Sanatana dharma" who believe in the cult of Lord Shiva.
