Sri Sridhara Venkatesa Ayyaval composed a soulful prayer called 'AarthiHara Stotra' in which he prayed, "Oh Lord! Please bestow your loving and compassionate glance on me, who is suffering from the pangs of separation from you! You have the untarnished fame of relieving the one who merely chants your Divine name from the clutches of sorrow! How is it that though I have sought refuge in You, I am agonized? Did you not bestow your grace on the hunter who, on death bed, chanted your divine name 'Hara Hara Hara' unintentionally, while teaching his son the way to hunt-'Prahara, Aahara, Samhara'(attack, bring, kill)? Such being your compassion, how can you turn your face away from me who am piteously praying- 'Save me Lord Shiva!'
श्री शंभो मयि करुणाशिशिरां दृष्टिं दिशन् सुधावृष्टिम् |
सन्तापमपाकुरुमे मन्तापरमेश तव दयायाः स्याम् ||
प्रहराहरेतिवादी फणितमदाख्य इति पालितो भवता |
शिव पाहीति वदोऽहं शृतो न किं क्वां कथं न पाल्यस्ते ||
