दंष्ट्राकरालानि च ते मुखानि
दिशो न जाने न लभे च शर्म
प्रसीद देवेश जगन्निवास।।11.25।।
।।11.25।।आपके प्रलयकालकी अग्निके समान प्रज्वलित और दाढ़ोंके कारण विकराल (भयानक) मुखोंको देखकर मुझे न तो दिशाओंका ज्ञान हो रहा है और न शान्ति ही मिल रही है। इसलिये हे देवेश हे जगन्निवास आप प्रसन्न होइये।
11.25 Drstva eva, having merely seen; te, Your; mukhani, mouths; damstra-karalani, made terrible with (their) teeth; and kala-anala-sannibhani, resembling the fire of Dissolution is kalanala; similar to that; na jane, I have lost; the sense of disah, direction-I do not know the directions as to which is East or which is West; and hence, na labhe, find no; sarma, comfort. Therefore, prasida, be gracious; devesa, O Lord of gods; jagannivasa, O Abode of the Universe! The apprehension which was there of my getting defeated by those offers, that too has cleared away, since-
11.25 Sri Abhinavagupta did not comment upon this sloka.
11.25 Looking at Your mouths, extremely terrifying and like cosmic fire at the end of the universe, and operating for the destruction of everything, I have lost the sense of recognising the arters of the sky, nor do I feel happy and peaceful. O Abode of all the worlds, O Lord of all the Devas, namely, O Overlord of even gods like Brahma! Be gracious unto me. The meaning is: Do act in such a way that I may attain my natural condition. Arjunas charioteer (Parthasarathi), thus showing that all the worlds depend upon Him for their existence and activities, showed to the son of Prtha (Arjuna) that what He wanted to do, making Arjuna a mere instrument of His, was to lighten the burden of the earth through the destruction of all those who were of Asuric manifestations and who, in the guise of kings, were presenting themselves as the sons of Dhrtarastra and their followers. Many such embodiments of Asuras were present also in the ranks of Yudhisthiras followers. And Arjuna, after having realised with the divine eyes, received through His grace, the complete manifestation of the Lord as the Creator etc., witnessed also the slaughter of the followers of the sons of Dhrtarastra etc., in that Lord Himself, who is the Self of all, even though it (the slaughter) had not happened actually according to human calculations. Arjuna continues:
