Devi Mahatmyam

Sri Devi Mahatmyam
Madhyama Charitham
(Middle part)
Chapter 2: Killing of the armies of Mahishasura.

61.  Eka bhawakshi charana kechidivya dwidhakrutha,
       Chinnepi chaanye shirasi pathitha punuruthidha.

62.  Kabandhaa yuyudhur devya grahidha paramayudha.
 Some of them were cut in to two pieces with each piece having one eye, one ear and one leg. Some others even though they were beheaded again and again got up and fought with the goddess as headless body with several great weapons.
(It was believed that once thousand heroes are beheaded in war one trunk without head gets up to fight. In this war it is believed ten million times ten million trunks got up)

63.  Kabandha Chinna shirasa Gadga shakthyushti panaya,
       Thishta thishtehi bhashantho devimanye mahasura.
 Some other asuras danced to the balanced tune of orchestra. While some trunks fought with the two sided sharpened sword, some other asuras fought with her shouting to her, “Stop, stop.”

64.  Pathithairadha naga aswai asuraischa vasundhara,
       Agamya sabhavat thathra yathradbutha maha rana.
 That arena of war where the war took place became mpossible to cross due to fallen chariots, elephants, horses and other fallen asuras.

65.  Sonithougha maha nadhya sadya sththra visusruvu,
       madhye chasura sainyasya varanasura vajinaam.
 There in the midst of the Asura army, great rivers of blood in which elephants, horses and asuras were floating were seen.

(to be contd…..)
