 Similarly Mahishasura also was ready to fight in that battle surrounded by thousand million times thousand million sets of chariots, elephants and horses.

       Yuyudhu samyuge, devya gadagai parasu pattisai.
 Those Rakshasas fought the war with javelins, (not clear), elephant controlling spears, spears, pestles, axes and broad swords.

48.  Kecicha chikshupu sakthi kechith pasa sthada pare,
       Devim gadga praharaisthu they thaam hanthum prachakramu.
 Some of them threw spears and some rope at her. And other great asuras tried to cut that goddess by swords and kill her.

49.  Sapi devi thathasthani sasthrayastharni chandika,
       Leelayaiva prachicheda nija sasthranyasthani varshani.
 Afterwards that Goddess Chandika by sending her weapons and arrows cut off the weapons and arrows send by them as if she was playing.

50.  Anayasthanana Devi sthyumana surarshibhi,
       Mumocha sura deheshu Sasthrani asthrani cheswari.
 Without sign of any tiredness in her face that Goddess who was being praised by devas and sages also sent weapons and arrows towards the bodies of those asuras.
