Offenders of Lord Shiva
tvat paro nāsti me preyāṁs tvaṁ madīyātmanah paraḥ
ye tvāṁ nindanti pāpiṣṭhā jñāna-hīnā vicetanāḥ
pacyante kāla-sūtreṇa yāvac candra-divākarau
[Lord Krishna said:] Oh dear Shiva! There is no one more dear to me than you. You are more valuable to
me than my own self. Those who are sinful, foolish, and devoid of any good consciousness criticize you, and as a result fall into the hell known as Kalasutra, where they are cooked for as long as the sun and moon exist. ·
