त्राहि नस्तावकान्देव विनष्टांस्त्रिपुरालयै: ॥ ५६ ॥
trāhi nas tāvakān deva
tataḥ — thereafter; te — they (the demigods); sa-īśvarāḥ — with their rulers; lokāḥ — the planets; upāsādya — approaching; īśvaram — Lord Śiva; natāḥ — fell down in surrender; trāhi — please save; naḥ — us; tāvakān — near and dear to you and very frightened; deva — O Lord; vinaṣṭān — almost finished; tripura-ālayaiḥ — by the demons dwelling in those three planes.
Thereafter, when the demons had begun to destroy the higher planetary systems, the rulers of those planets went to Lord Śiva, fully surrendered unto him and said: Dear Lord, we demigods living in the three worlds are about to be vanquished. We are your followers. Kindly save us.
