English translation

An example:
Bhīma, forcefully placing his left foot, fearful as the punishment of Yama, on top of Śiśupāla’s crown, kicked him decisively three times. This Śiśupāla had insulted the Lord whose lotus feet are lit by and worshiped with the rays emanating from the crest jewels of the Vedas (the Upaniṣads).”
