- nābhāgas taṁ praṇamyāha
- taveśa kila vāstukam
- ity āha me pitā brahmañ
- chirasā tvāṁ prasādaye
nābhāgaḥ—Nābhāga; tam—unto him (Lord Śiva); praṇamya—offering obeisances; āha—said; tava—yours; īśa—O lord; kila—certainly; vāstukam—everything in the arena of sacrifice; iti—thus; āha—said; me—my; pitā—father; brahman—O brāhmaṇa; śirasā—bowing my head; tvām—unto you; prasādaye—I am begging your mercy.
Thereupon, after offering obeisances to Lord Śiva, Nābhāga said: O worshipable lord, everything in this arena of sacrifice is yours. This is the assertion of my father. Now, with great respect, I bow my head before you, begging your mercy.
