(Pleasing and delicate) like a lotus petal, it is radiant (with energy) and grey in colour. It shakes with mighty and fierce currents (of energy) engaged in striking against (it) and rocking (it) all around [i.e., mahā-pracaṇḍa-daṇḍa-ugra-sphālana-ullola-lālasa] as it dries up (the entire) universe. The all-pervasive Lord of Kula resides within (this), the maṇḍala of six spokes. There is nothing devoid of that within the sphere of emanation and withdrawal”.
