CINTRA PRASHASTI OF THE REIGN OF SARANGADEVA

Verse 60. -"He (Tripurantaka), the most excellent of the virtuous, caused one dramma to be assigned daily (from the revenue) in the custom-house (mandapika) by an edict (Shashana) of the Chaturjataka."

[Tripurantaka paid money in order to secure this grant and that is mentioned in the next verse: Verse 71 declares that he purchased the Shashana with his pure self acquired wealth].

Verse 61. -"Even these (from the revenue in the custom-house) this noble-minded man caused nine dram mas to be assigned (monthly) for the maintenance of the pupil (batuka, who serves the temples)."

Verse 62. -"Fifteen drammas must be given every month to the Pashupala, who comes to perform incomparable worship (according to the law)."

Verse 63. -"For this purpose he (Tripurantaka) placed every month fifteen drammas in the treasury of the worshipful Chaturjataka" (Original Sammilitapottake: The author has taken pottaka-adaptation of the Persian Fotah, which occurs in Gujarati as potum and means 'the total Of village taxes’; hence the word-the Place where the village taxes are collected i.e., the treasury. In Marathi poteni- Treasury.)
