CINTRA PRASHASTI OF THE REIGN OF SARANGADEVA

Verse 14. --'The God who wears the infant moon on his head, and who grants rewards for the multitude of performances of austerities himself, became incarnate in the form of Bhattaraka Shri Lakulisha in order to bestow favour on the universe." 

Verse 15. -"And in order to favour the offspring of Uluka, who, long was deprived of sons in consequence of a curse of their father, he came to and dwelt at Karshana, the forehead, as it were, of the earth, an ornament of the Lata country." (The poet meant to say 'an ornament of the Lata country which latter resembles the forehead lalata of the earth.')

Verse 16. -"In this (place) appeared, in order to fulfil particular Pashupata vows, four pupils of his, called Kushika, Gargya, Kaurusha and Maitreya."

Verse 17. -"Afterwards the race of these ascetics, which grew up in four (branches) adorned the earth that is bounded by the four oceans."

Verse 18. -"Through the succession of the high minded men who were favoured by those (four) arose the glorious... ka possessing boundless wealth."
