दिव्यान्यस्त्राणि संस्मृत्य सज्यं गाण्डीवमाददे ॥ ३६ ॥
divyāny astrāṇi saṁsmṛtya
sajyaṁ gāṇḍīvam ādade
After touching pure water, offering obeisances to Lord Maheśvara and recollecting the mantras for his celestial weapons, Arjuna strung his bow Gāṇḍīva.
The ācāryas point out that since the brāhmaṇa had disrespected Lord Kṛṣṇa, Arjuna tactfully offered his obeisances instead to Lord Śiva, who had taught Arjuna how to use the mantras of the Pāśupāta weapon.
