Sri Gurubhyo Namaha
Has any of you heard of the "Sheethalaashtaka Stotra" and know its
I do not know who the composer is. The shloka begins with the words :
Vandeyham Sheethalaam deviim Raasabhasthaam Digambaraam
Maarjanii kalashopethaam Shoorpaalankrita Mastakaam .
I have heard from an aunty of mine that the above Ashtakam is very
efficacious in curing all skin diseases. In many of the stanzas the word
" Visphotakabhayam " repeatedly appears which I understand refer to the
Small pox which used to be highly rampant in olden days. I believe once
Sringeri Acharya Himself had advised a patient of severe eczema to chant
the above shloka which later cured 90 % of his problem ! I have the full
script and am very much interested to know the meaning.
