This (great sacrifice) brings every success and is the sure means of getting (whatever) one thinks about [i.e., cintita-artha-prasādhana]. I will tell (you) that clearly as it (truly) is. One should make a level canopy measuring sixteen (handspans) in a frightening forest, or (beside) a solitary tree or a single beautiful Liṅga, in a temple dedicated to the Mothers, on a battle ground, on a threshing floor, in a house, or (places) that are tranquil, terrifying, or romantic as one pleases. Beautiful with flags and garlands, (it is erected) to (win) victory in battle with the enemy and for other purposes as they arise, each separately”.
