Hindi meaning:


English meaning:
O Giver of boons, in refutation of Thy Divinity which is described by the three Vedas, which creates, preserves, and destroys the world, and which is divided into three bodies according to the different qualities, some thick headed persons offer arguments, which are pleasing to the ignorant but (in reality) hateful.


Mantra-III

Ajanmano Loka Kimvayavvanto api jatamdhishthataram kim Bhavvidhrirnadritya Bhavti. Aneesho Va Kuryad bhuvanjannai ka parikaram yato mandasatavam pratyamravar sanshairat emai.

There are different paths (of realization) as enjoined by the three Vedas, Samkhya, Yoga, Pasupata doctrine, and Vaishnava Sastras.

Mantra-V


Sanskrit wording:


English wording:
Mahoksha Khatvangam Parshurjinam Bhasam Fanina, Kapalam chatiyatav varad tantropkarnam. Surasatam tamardhim dhadhti tu bhavadbhrupranihitam, Na hi Savatmaranam vishaymrigtrishana bhramyati.


Hindi meaning:


English meaning:
O Giver of boons, a great bull, a wooden club, an axe, a tiger-skin, ashes, a human skull and the like–these are Thy sole possessions though by the mere casting of eyes Thou gave to gods great treasures which they enjoy. Indeed, the mirage of sense-objects cannot delude one whose delight is in the Self.

Dharoovam Kashchit sarvam sakalamparastavdhoooravmidam paro Dhroyayadhroyae jagti gadti vayastvishae, samasteapatesamin purmadhan Tavarsamit ev, satuvan givihami tavam na khalo nanoo Dharishta mukhrata.


Hindi meaning:


English meaning:
O Destroyer of Pura, some say that the whole universe is eternal, while others say that all is transitory. Yet others maintain that all these are eternal and non-eternal–having different characteristics. Bewildered, as it were, by them I do not feel ashamed to praise Thee. Indeed this garrulity indicates my audacity.

Hindi meaning:

Hindi meaning:


English meaning:
In order to save the world when Thou danced, the earth wondered at the striking of Thy feet, whether it would not come to a sudden end; so felt the spatial region along with the planets, oppressed by the movement of Thy iron-cube like arms; and the heaven became then miserable its side being struck by Thy waving matted hair. Ah, Thy very mihgtiness is the cause of trouble.
