शतभिषगनुयात: शंभुमूर्ध्नोऽवतंस: ।
विरहयति न चैनं राजयक्ष्मा शशाङ्कं
हतविधिपरिपाक: केन वा लङ्घनीय: ।।८८।।

superior to all life-giving medicines,
more gifted than a hundred doctors combined,
he is the moon that adorns śiva’s crown.
yet a deadly disease has paled his sheen.
can anyone abscond their wretched fate? ||88||
