[...] Bringing with him many articles of presentation, the liberal Western mountain reached there in a divine form. The Eastern mountain (udayācala) came there with brilliant gems and jewels. He looked delighted and extremely brilliant. The highly venerable lord of mountains, Malaya, came there with his followers. He was happy with his excellent followers. The mountain Dardura came along with his wife. He was exquisitely dressed. He was delighted. He had many attendants with him. [...]”.
