  2. 17

    मेघश्यामः कनकपरिधिः कर्णविद्योतविद्युन्मूर्ध्नि भ्राजद्विलुलितकचः स्रग्धरो रक्तनेत्रः । जैत्रैर्दोर्भिर्जगदभयदैर्दन्दशूकं गृहीत्वा मथ्नन् मथ्ना प्रतिगिरिरिवाशोभताथो धृताद्रिः ।‌। ८-७-१७ ।।

    The Lord appeared like a blackish cloud. He was dressed with yellow garments, His earrings shone on His ears like lightning, and His hair spread over His shoulders. He wore a garland of flowers, and His eyes were pinkish. With His strong, glorious arms, which award fearlessness throughout the universe, He took hold of Vāsuki and began churning the ocean, using Mandara Mountain as a churning rod. When engaged in this way, the Lord appeared like a beautifully situated mountain named Indranīla. ।‌। 8-7-17 ।।

  3. 18

    निर्मथ्यमानादुदधेरभूद्विषं महोल्बणं हालहलाह्वमग्रतः । सम्भ्रान्तमीनोन्मकराहिकच्छपात्तिमिद्विपग्राहतिमिङ्गिलाकुलात् ।‌। ८-७-१८ ।।

    The fish, sharks, tortoises and snakes were most agitated and perturbed. The entire ocean became turbulent, and even the large aquatic animals like whales, water elephants, crocodiles and timiṅgila fish [large whales that can swallow small whales] came to the surface. While the ocean was being churned in this way, it first produced a fiercely dangerous poison called hālahala. ।‌। 8-7-18 ।।

  4. 19

    तदुग्रवेगं दिशि दिश्युपर्यधो विसर्पदुत्सर्पदसह्यमप्रति । भीताः प्रजा दुद्रुवुरङ्ग सेश्वरा अरक्ष्यमाणाः शरणं सदाशिवम् ।‌। ८-७-१९ ।।

    O King, when that uncontrollable poison was forcefully spreading up and down in all directions, all the demigods, along with the Lord Himself, approached Lord Śiva [Sadāśiva]. Feeling unsheltered and very much afraid, they sought shelter of him. ।‌। 8-7-19 ।।

  5. 20

    विलोक्य तं देववरं त्रिलोक्या भवाय देव्याभिमतं मुनीनाम् । आसीनमद्रावपवर्गहेतोस्तपो जुषाणं स्तुतिभिः प्रणेमुः ।‌। ८-७-२० ।।

    The demigods observed Lord Śiva sitting on the summit of Kailāsa Hill with his wife, Bhavānī, for the auspicious development of the three worlds. He was being worshiped by great saintly persons desiring liberation. The demigods offered him their obeisances and prayers with great respect. ।‌। 8-7-20 ।।
