She plays in the Wheel of Fire and moves in the first day of the bright lunar fortnight into the hexagram. By churning (the two breaths), Sun and Moon, she looks beautiful in the Triangle within the maṇḍala and is endowed with the six (parts of the Hexagram). Above time and in front within the excellent city of the three cities (tripura) (i.e. the Triangle), she is divided into the divisions (of the triangle and the hexagram)”.
