CINTRA PRASHASTI OF THE REIGN OF SARANGADEVA

Verse 68--"Three Pure-minded shop-keepers must always personally provide garlands, coconut and pairs of soft garments in the three royal processions of the glorious Lord Somanatha."

(In this verse Yugah is translated as 'Pairs of gar lands' but it is conjectural. On such occasion as Shivaratri, it is quite usual to adorn the streets with cloth.)

Verse 69. -"After the Pashupalaka has first worshipped these five temples according to the manner (prescribed) for (the worship of) divine Someshvara, he shall afterwards ascend the stairs (leading to the temple) of the glorious deity." (This rule refers to Shivaratri.)

Verse 70. -"He (Tripurantaka) gave to the worshipful Chaturjataka a dharmasthana" (land or money assigned for a religious purpose: Cf. Devasthana). 

Verse 71. -"As he procured this Dharmasthana and this grant (Shashana mentioned above) with pure self acquired property, the banner of his fame which is connected with his temples, glitters brilliantly white like the full moon."
