Sloka Vishuddhou the shuddha sphatika visadham has been taken from Soundarya Lahari ( sloka 37 ). This sloka is chanted to get Immunity From Devils and Spirits/Removal of Bhootha , Pretha Pisacha and Brahma Rakshasa. Soundarya lahari meaning waves of beauty consists of two parts viz. Ananda Lahari meaning waves of happiness (first 41 stanzas) and Soundarya Lahari (the next 59 stanzas). It is believed that Lord Ganesha himself has etched the Ananda Lahari on Mount Meru (Some people believe that Sage Pushpa Dhantha did the etching). It was read from there by Sage Goudapada who taught it to Adi Sankara. Adi Sankara himself added the rest of the 59 stanzas and completed it.
विशुद्धौ ते शुद्धस्फटिकविशदं व्योमजनकं
शिवं सेवे देवीमपि शिवसमानव्यवसिताम् ।
ययोः कान्त्या यान्त्याः शशिकिरणसारूप्यसरणे-
विधूतान्तर्ध्वान्ता विलसति चकोरीव जगती ॥
Vishuddhou the shuddha sphatika visadham vyoma janakam
Shivam seve devimapi siva samana vyavasitham
Yayo kaanthya sasi kirana saaroopya sarane
Vidhoo thantha dwarvantha vilamathi chakoriva jagathi
I bow before the Shiva, Who is of the pure crystal form, In thine supremely pure wheel and who creates the principle of ether,And to you my mother, Who has the same stream of thought as Him. I bow to you both, Whose moon-like light, Forever removes the darkness of ignorance,Forever from the mind and which shines like the Chakora bird, Playing in the full moonlight.
