तद्वीक्ष्य व्यसनं तासां कृपया भृशपीडित: ।
सर्वभूतसुहृद् देव इदमाह सतीं प्रियाम् ॥ ३६ ॥
tad-vīkṣya vyasanaṁ tāsāṁ
idam āha satīṁ priyām
śrī-śukaḥ uvāca — Śrī Śukadeva Gosvāmī said; tat — this situation; vīkṣya — seeing; vyasanam — dangerous; tāsām — of all the demigods; kṛpayā — out of compassion; bhṛśa-pīḍitaḥ — greatly aggrieved; sarva-bhūta-suhṛt — the friend of all living entities; devaḥ — Mahādeva; idam — this; āha — said; satīm — unto Satīdevī; priyām — his very dear wife.
Śrīla Śukadeva Gosvāmī continued: Lord Śiva is always benevolent toward all living entities. When he saw that the living entities were very much disturbed by the poison, which was spreading everywhere, he was very compassionate. Thus he spoke to his eternal consort, Satī, as follows.
