एष लोकगुरु: साक्षाद्धर्मं वक्ता शरीरिणाम् ।
आस्ते मुख्य: सभायां वै मिथुनीभूय भार्यया ॥ ६ ॥
eṣa loka-guruḥ sākṣād
dharmaṁ vaktā śarīriṇām
āste mukhyaḥ sabhāyāṁ vai
citraketuḥ uvāca — King Citraketu said; eṣaḥ — this; loka-guruḥ — the spiritual master of the people who follow Vedic instructions; sākṣāt — directly; dharmam — of religion; vaktā — the speaker; śarīriṇām — for all living entities who have accepted material bodies; āste — sits; mukhyaḥ — the chief; sabhāyām — in an assembly; vai — indeed; mithunī-bhūya — embracing; bhāryayā — with his wife.
Citraketu said: Lord Śiva, the spiritual master of the general populace, is the best of all living entities who have accepted material bodies. He enunciates the system of religion. Yet how wonderful it is that he is embracing his wife, Pārvatī, in the midst of an assembly of great saintly persons.
