TEXT 290

‘rudra’-rūpa dhari kare jagat saṁhāra
sṛṣṭi, sthiti, pralaya haya icchāya yāṅhāra


rudra-rūpa dhari — accepting the form of Lord Śiva; kare — performs; jagat saṁhāra — dissolution of the universal creation; sṛṣṭi — creation; sthiti — maintenance; pralaya — and dissolution; haya — take place; icchāya — by the will; yāṅhāra — of whom.


“The Supreme Lord in His form of Rudra [Lord Śiva] brings about the dissolution of this material creation. In other words, only by His will are there creation, maintenance and dissolution of the whole cosmic manifestation.
