The abstract of this paper is to present two remarkable creations in Sanskrit literature one being widely known and less explored, namely the Shiva Mahimna Stotra (abbv. ShMaSt) while another is almost unknown and hardly explored, namely Viswanath Abhivandanam (abbv. ViAb) and to analyze some of the aspects of both the works and establish the equal brilliance of the lesser known one i.e. the ViAb in comparison to the widely known one i.e. ShMaSt. Our study is not only to establish the importance of the works in Sanskrit literature but in the vast ocean of world-literature as well. This paper also analyses hymn-based literatures as some brilliant poetic creations.
