44. As to this they say, “How does this Shatarudriya of his attain to (conformity with) the Great Litany?—how does it correspond to the Great Litany?” Well, those twenty-five formulas which there are on both sides of the eighties, they are the twenty-five-fold body; and where the body (of the altar-bird) is, that (includes) the head, and the wings and tail. And what eighties (of formulas) there are (in the Shatarudriya), thereby indeed the (corresponding) eighties (of the Mahad uktham) are obtained, for by eighties the Great Litany is recited. And what there is (in the Shatarudriya) after the eighties that is for him the same as what there, in the Great Litany, is after the eighties; and in this way this Shatarudriya of his attains to (conformity with) the Great Litany; in this way it corresponds to the Great Litany.
