नेता यस्य बृहस्पति: प्रहरणं वज्रं सुरा: सैनिका:
स्वर्गो दुर्गमनुग्रह: खलु हरेरैरावणो रावण: ।
इत्याश्चर्यबलान्वितोऽपि बलभिद्भग्न: परै: संगरे
तद्व्यक्तं ननु दैवमेव शरणं धिग्धिग्वृथा पौरुषम् ।।८१।।
with brhaspati as his counsellor,
thunderbolt as a weapon,
immortal deities for soldiers,
heaven as his fortress,
vishnu himself as his protector,
and airāvaṇa as elephant-in-chief,
indra, the king of gods,
is extraordinarily powerful.
yet, he meets defeat after defeat in battle.
thus it is clear–
god alone is our refuge;
manhood and vigor, go cower! ||81|||
