- yajña-vāstu-gataṁ sarvam
- ucchiṣṭam ṛṣayaḥ kvacit
- cakrur hi bhāgaṁ rudrāya
- sa devaḥ sarvam arhati
yajña-vāstu-gatam—things belonging to the sacrificial arena; sarvam—everything; ucchiṣṭam—remnants; ṛṣayaḥ—the great sages; kvacit—sometimes, in the Dakṣa-yajña; cakruḥ—did so; hi—indeed; bhāgam—share; rudrāya—unto Lord Śiva; saḥ—that; devaḥ—demigod; sarvam—everything; arhati—deserves.
The father of Nābhāga said: Whatever the great sages sacrificed in the arena of the Dakṣa-yajña, they offered to Lord Śiva as his share. Therefore, everything in the sacrificial arena certainly belongs to Lord Śiva.
