इत्याह मे पिता ब्रह्मञ्छिरसा त्वां प्रसादये ॥ ९ ॥
taveśa kila vāstukam
ity āha me pitā brahmañ
chirasā tvāṁ prasādaye
nābhāgaḥ — Nābhāga; tam — unto him (Lord Śiva); praṇamya — offering obeisances; āha — said; tava — yours; īśa — O lord; kila — certainly; vāstukam — everything in the arena of sacrifice; iti — thus; āha — said; me — my; pitā — father; brahman — O brāhmaṇa; śirasā — bowing my head; tvām — unto you; prasādaye — I am begging your mercy.
Thereupon, after offering obeisances to Lord Śiva, Nābhāga said: O worshipable lord, everything in this arena of sacrifice is yours. This is the assertion of my father. Now, with great respect, I bow my head before you, begging your mercy.
