iti—thus; ādiṣṭaḥ—being ordered; sva-guruṇā—by his own spiritual master; bhagavān—the most powerful; nīla-lohitaḥ—Rudra, whose color is mixed blue and red; sattva—power; ākṛti—bodily features; svabhāvena—and with a very furious mode of nature; sasarja—created; ātma-samāḥ—like his own prototype; prajāḥ—generations.
The most powerful Rudra, whose bodily color was blue mixed with red, created many offspring exactly resembling him in features, strength and furious nature.
