Approaching Śiva with palms joined in reverence [viz., kṛtāñjali] and accompanied by Lakṣmī, the Garuḍa-vehicled God Viṣṇu spoke thus: ‘[...] O lord of living beings (Sarvabhūteśa), this is my humble submission. you shall kill the man, whoever it may be, who sees or hears her with lust in his mind’”.
