1. 21

    ततस्तिर्यङ्मुखो नग्नामनिरीक्षन् गदाग्रजः । बाणश्च तावद्विरथश्छिन्नधन्वाविशत्पुरम् ।। १०-६३-२१ ।।

    Lord Gadāgraja turned His face away to avoid seeing the naked woman, and Bāṇāsura — deprived of his chariot, his bow shattered — took the opportunity to flee into his city. ।। 10-63-21 ।।

  2. 22

    विद्राविते भूतगणे ज्वरस्तु त्रिशिरास्त्रिपात् । अभ्यधावत दाशार्हं दहन्निव दिशो दश ।। १०-६३-२२ ।।

    After Lord Śiva’s followers had been driven away, the Śiva-jvara, who had three heads and three feet, pressed forward to attack Lord Kṛṣṇa. As the Śiva-jvara approached, he seemed to burn everything in the ten directions. ।। 10-63-22 ।।

  3. 23

    अथ नारायणो देवस्तं दृष्ट्वा व्यसृजज्ज्वरम् । माहेश्वरो वैष्णवश्च युयुधाते ज्वरावुभौ ।। १०-६३-२३ ।।

    Seeing this personified weapon approach, Lord Nārāyaṇa then released His own personified fever weapon, the Viṣṇu-jvara. The Śiva-jvara and Viṣṇu-jvara thus battled each other. ।। 10-63-23 ।।

  4. 24

    माहेश्वरः समाक्रन्दन् वैष्णवेन बलार्दितः । अलब्ध्वाभयमन्यत्र भीतो माहेश्वरो ज्वरः । शरणार्थी हृषीकेशं तुष्टाव प्रयताञ्जलिः ।। १०-६३-२४ ।।

    The Śiva-jvara, overwhelmed by the strength of the Viṣṇu-jvara, cried out in pain. But finding no refuge, the frightened Śiva-jvara approached Lord Kṛṣṇa, the master of the senses, hoping to attain His shelter. Thus with joined palms he began to praise the Lord. ।। 10-63-24 ।।

  5. 25

    ज्वर उवाच नमामि त्वानन्तशक्तिं परेशं सर्वात्मानं केवलं ज्ञप्तिमात्रम् । विश्वोत्पत्तिस्थानसंरोधहेतुं यत्तद्ब्रह्म ब्रह्मलिङ्गं प्रशान्तम् ।। १०-६३-२५ ।।

    The Śiva-jvara said: I bow down to You of unlimited potencies, the Supreme Lord, the Supersoul of all beings. You possess pure and complete consciousness and are the cause of cosmic creation, maintenance and dissolution. Perfectly peaceful, You are the Absolute Truth to whom the Vedas indirectly refer. ।। 10-63-25 ।।
