When all the Yakshas had run away, then the mighty Krishna discharged Rudrastra (the arm in relation to Rudra), which made the earth and the nether-world tremble; Then Shiva holding his trident got up and ran; he reflected how the Lord Krishna had remembered him?1499.
Rudra and his other warriors started moving alongwith him; Ganesh also accompanied with all his army; All other ganas, taking up their weapons, moved along; they were all thinking as to who was that mighty hero born in the world, for killing whom, they had been called.1500.
All of them are thinking as to who can be that mighty one born in the world; the god Shiva and his ganas, in their fury, came out of their abodes.1501.
When the god of dissolution came himself in the battlefield, them the field itself indeed became the field of anxiety.1502.
Already when Ganesh, Shiva, Dattatreya and ganas were viewing the battlefield, there and then the king himself challenged them to fight.1503.
O Shiva ! whatever strength you have today, use it in this war; O Ganesh ! do have so much strength as to fight with me?
Hello Kartikeya ! for what you are becoming egoistic? You will be killed with one arrow; still nothing has gone wrong, why do you want to die while fighting in the war?"1504.
Speech of Shiva addressed to Kharag Singh:
Shiva spoke in anger, "O king ! why are you so proud? Do not indulge in strife with us; you will see just now what strength we have!
If you have greater courage, then why are you delaying, why do you not take your bow and arrows in your hands? You have a very large body and by piercing it with my arrows, I shall lighten it."1505.
Speech of Kharag Singh addressed to Shiva:
O Shiva ! why are you so proud? Now when there will be dreadful fighting, you will run away; with the infliction of a single arrow, all your army will dance like a monkey;
All the army of the ghosts and fiends will be vanquished and there will be no survivor; O Shiva ! listen, this earth saturated with your blood will wear the red garb today."1506.
Hearing these words, Shiva held up his bow and arrows and pulling his bow upto his ear, he discharged the arrow, which struck the face of the king; it appeared that Garuda had caught the king of the snakes.1507.
Then the king struck his lance, which hit the chest of Shiva; it appeared that the ray of the sun was hovering over the lotus.1508.
Then Shiva pulled it out with both his hands and threw that lance like a black she-serpent on the earth; then the king drew out his sword from the scabbard and with great force struck its blow on Shiva.1509.
Shiva became unconscious and fell on the ground like the peak of the mountain falling down with the blow of vajra; when the army saw this condition of Shiva, then Ganesh, the son of Shiva, took the lance in his hand.1510.
Taking the Shakti (lance) in his hand he came in front of the king and with the full force of his hand, he threw it towards the king in such a way that it was not a lance, but death itself.1511.
On coming, the king intercepted the lance and inflicted a sharp arrow in the heart of the enemy; that arrow attacked the vehicle of Ganesh;
The second arrow his slantingly on the forehead of Ganesh and it appeared like the arrow-like goad stuck in the forehead of an elephant.1512.
On this side, regaining consciousness, mounting on his vehicle Shiva discharged the arrow from his bow and he inflicted an extremely sharp arrow in the heart of the king;
Shiva was pleased to think that the king had been killed, but the king was not even slightly frightened by the impact of this arrow; the king took out an arrow from his quiver and pulled his bow.1513.
The king, making Shiva his target, pulled his bow upto his ear, discharged an arrow towards his heart in order to kill him certainly.1514.
When he discharged his arrow towards the heart of Shiva and at the same time, that mighty one looked towards the army of Shiva; Kartikeya was coming speedily alongwith his army and the ganas of Ganesh were getting extremely infuriated.1515.
Seeing both of them coming, the king was extremely enraged in his mind and with the strength of his arms, he struck an arrow on their vehicle;
He despatched in an instant the army of ganas to the abode of Yama; seeing the king advancing towards Kartikeya, Ganesha also abandoned the battlefield and fled away.1516.
Destroying and forcing the army of Shiva to run away, the king was pleased in his mind and said loudly, "Why all of you are running away in fear?
Kharag Singh then took his conch in his hand and blew it and he appeared as Yama, carrying his weapons in the battlefied.1517.
When his challenge was heard, then carrying their swords in their hands, the warriors came back to fight; though they were definitely feeling ashamed, but now they stood firmly and fearlessly and they all blew their conches together;
With the shouts of "kill, kill" they challenged and said, "O king! you have killed many people; now we shall not leave you, we shall kill you," saying this, they discharged volleys of arrows.1518.
When there was dreadful destruction, the king held up his weapons and carrying the dagger, mace, lance, axe and sword in his hands, he challenged the enemy;
Taking his bow and arrows in his hands and looking here and there, he killed many enemies; the faces of the warriors fighting with the king became red and ultimately they were all defeated.1519.
Taking his bow and arrows in his hands, Shiva was extremely enraged; he got his vehicle driven towards the king with the motive of killing him; he shouted loudly to the king;
I am just now going to kill you" and saying thus, he raised the dreadful sound of his conch; it appeared that the clouds were thundering on the doomsday.1520.
That terrible sound pervaded the whole universe and even Indra was wonder-struck on listening to it; the echo of this sound thundered in the seven oceans, streams, tanks and Sumeru mountain etc.;
Sheshnaga listening to this sound also trembled; he thought that all the fourteen worlds had trembled; the beings of all the worlds, listening to this sound, were bewildered; but the king Kharag Singh was not frightened.1521.
Speech of Kharag Singh addressed to Shiva:
Seeing towards Rudra, the king said within his hearing, "O Yogi! what difference your deceit of raising the sound will make?
You engage yourself in begging for the alms of rice; I do not fear your archery; only the Kshatrieas are meant to fight, this is not task of Yogis."1522.
Saying this, the king took out his large dagger and in anger hurled it on the body of Shiva; after striking the blow of the dagger on the body of Shiva, the king roaring like the sea challenged him;
Shiva fell down with the blow of the dagger; his necklace of skulls slipped and fell down; somewhere his bull fell down and somewhere his trident fell down.1523.
Now the army of Shiva, in fury, surrounded the king, but the king also remained stable in the battlefield and did not retrace even one step;
In that garden of the battlefield, the chariots look small tanks, the banners like trees and the warriors like birds; the ganas of Shiva as birds appears to fly away when the king as falcon pounces upon them.1524.
Some ganas of Shiva remained stable; these ganas were Ganchhabi, Ganraj, Mahavir and Monroy.1525.
From the warriors came back Ganraj, Mahavir and Ganchhabi; they returned with red eyes because they were so powerful that they had made Yama only a toy;
The king seeing the enemies coming did not become fearful even slightly; while killing the ganas in the battlefield he felt these ganas were not actually fighting and instead they were casting spells.1526.
Then the king killed the enemy with his arrow; the army of the ganas looked towards him with malice; the king challenged Ganesh again, who being frightened ran away from the field.1527.
The Shiva became somewhat conscious and he fled away from the war-arena; other ganas, ran away in fear; there seemed to be no warrior, who could confront the king.1528.
When Krishna saw Shiva running away, then he reflected in his mind that he would then fight with the enemy himself; either he would kill the enemy of die himself.1529.
Then Krishna went before the king and waged a dreadful war; making him the target, the king shot an arrow and dismounted Krishna from his chariot.1530.
