त्रिलोक्यां प्रतियोद्धारं न लभे त्वदृते समम् ॥ ६ ॥
paraṁ bhārāya me ’bhavat
na labhe tvad ṛte samam
These one thousand arms you bestowed upon me have become merely a heavy burden. Besides you, I find no one in the three worlds worthy to fight.
According to the ācāryas, Bāṇāsura’s subtle implication here is this: “And so when I have defeated you, Lord Śiva, my world conquest will be complete and my desire for battle satisfied.”
