Praise be to Shiva who dwelleth in a land where rains perpetually fall, and who is the lord of Paradise, and giver of happiness to mankind. * * *, a god most righteous and powerful * * * Praise be to him to whom sacrifices for propitiation of sins are offered, who keepeth his word, and who dwelleth in Kailas and on whom all Devatas and Asurs attend.
May the injunctions of the conquerer of Tirpora be always your guide.
Padmasan, with implicit faith celebrated a Jag in the delightful forest called Daruban, by means of which he ganied the favour of Shiva, who
is pleased only by placing great confidence in him. * * *
He prospered by virtue of this holy performance; he attained great power, and his family increased greatly. He was succeeded by a still better person of Muni descent. His name was Surendr; he had a pure heart and possessed great power, and commanded universal respect. dominions increased daily like the new moon. His son was the most celebrated Kadamhguhambusi, whose son was Rajá Shankhmathikadhipat, whose son was Ambipal. This prince like Mahadev, was a great conqueror of his enemies. From him descended Bhoritapa; his son was Tirath Nath, and from him descended Ram, a prince of great renown. His son was Purandargur, who was as powerful as his father, and who possessed a great inventive genius, and is admired to this day by all learned men for his extensive knowledge and superior talents. He was so shrewd that no lawyer could cheat him of his wealth. His son was Rajanishikhrabharan, the most venerable and praiseworthy man of the time, whose fame shone with equal lustre with the sun. The virtuous and wealthy Rajá Avanti, having heard from his messenger of the unparalleled qualifications of this worthy person, wished to see him before performing the Jag, he was now going to celebrate. Raja Avanti, the Chattri, went in person to that pious man, and after using every art and entreaty, brought him to Opendrpore, which abounds with Tamal-trees. *** The wise and well educated Monarch gave charge of his kingdom to him and himself retired to do penance. This most virtuous and pious prince who was as famous as the Sumeru Mountain, and who was the cleverest man of his age, entrusted the management of the government of Mattinagar to Rani Paindr and having retired to a solitary place, passed the remaining days of his life in performing worship. He was venerated by all. To him succeeded Cavach Shiva, who was beloved by all his subjects, and was as strong as armour. He was bold in field, had skill enough to ward off successfully the weapons of his enemy, and had subdued his passions. He was succeeded by his disciple Sada Shiva, a man of great forbearance; when he himself like his predecessor sought retirement. Sada Shiva's son was Sudhdaesh a prince of equal dignity, resembling to mountain Odayáchal. He was so powerful that he destroyed all his enemies, as the beams of the sun remove darkness. He was as generous as powerful. His dominions increased to an astonishing extent. He had not
****** His power extended to the remotest parts of the world, he
never deviated from the prescribed rules. Monarch shines to this day like the moon.
The fame of that good
passions and thus became an ornament to the seat of his Guru. He preserved peace throughout his reign and kept alliance with those who were worthy of his confidence. His *** was a man very wise and learned. This prince deserves great commendation, but suffice it to say that he humbled the pride of all his enemies. His excellencies are too numerous to be described in this short sketch. He was succeeded by his disciple Biyom Shiva, a most worthy and able person, and as pious as his predecessor. He acquired universal fame. He was highly forbearing and he was called Biyom Shiva, because he composed many verses in praise of Biyompad (or Vishnu). He gave much protection to his subjects and devoted himself always to the cause of others. His character was so commendable that it was sung by Kumers (celestial choristers.) The fame of that great Monarch spread over the earth like the moon-light. *** What more should I say in praise of this extraordinary man than *** He was most pious, and much devoted to worship; he was gentle in his speech and he followed the way of righteousness. He had a perfect command over his passions. He was very punctual in the discharge of his duties. He was a good administrator as well as a virtuous man. His words were very instructive, and all the good qualities were combined in him. ** * Jag*** He possessed a very large kingdom which increased every day. **** He was the most excellent person of his time. All his acts were surprising. His dominions extended to all parts of the earth. He had travelled over the whole world and had gained universal applause. He repopulated the long desolated city of Mutmayurpur and made it as flourishing as in the days of Ranipaindr. *** This city was now repeopled by him and made the seat of his government. Ile embellished the city with gold and pearls; his beautiful horses *** and stately elephants. He caused the buildings in the city to be cleaned. This great king with his immense wealth restored that admirable city to its ancient splendour. He superintended himself the construction of the new buildings *** His pious and glorious actions were admired both by men and gods*** who had turned away his eye from anger which is contemned by all good men. He was a man
of great forbearance and piety and there is nothing too good to be obtained by those who are always devoted to worship. * * * were so fat that a slap on their haunches produced a sound as loud as that of a trumpet. They were as swift in their motion as the sun. The Rajá was very punctual in the performance of the worship required of a Brumhchari. *** He had acquired a good name by his generosity and pious conduct. He was a prince of highest repute. He was as beautiful as Indra. The arms of Shiva were his protectors. Mahadev was never so much pleased with any person as with him. He never spoke trifles even when he conversed with his friends. He was of a fair complexion; and was the greatest man of his age. He had a thorough acquaintance with the doctrines of the Buddhist religion, and knew those of the religion of Jains as well as they themselves did. He had knowledge of the past, present, and the future. *** His outward appearance was such as excited terror, and that famous and pious Rajá (was so bold) that he feared no enemy. He was kind to those who were good; he knew each person's worth, and he deserves great praise for his virtues. He was the mightiest Monarch of his time, and possessed all the qualities of a good man, *** before the noise of elephants *** like the deer and jackals *** could stand or endure ***His talents shone with equal splendour in day and night, and his renown spread over the world like the moon-light. That excellent prince was adorned with a garland of all virtues that a man can possess. ***There never was a man superior to him in any respect in this world. He was very submissive, just, energetic, mild, wise, brave and pious. *** He had gained popular applause. Many Baolis, magnificent buildings, gardens *** temples in honor of Shiva, Parvati, Nandishor and Ganesh were constructed by him. The water of the Baolis was so pure that the shadow which the stars reflected in it seemed every night like Kumud flowers, and the ornaments which adorned the feet of those women who came to bathe there made a noise like that of a swarm of geese. The image of women that looked into the water was seen in it as clear as a lotus flower. The Baolis were adorned like a beautiful woman with every kind of embellishment, and every person that looked at their steps was highly pleased. They were the monuments of this Raja's greatness ***** In that pleasant land, and in those splendid buildings the Rajú lived like Mahadev. The
