गृध्राभ्रच्छन्नसूर्यांशुचिताज्वलननिस्तमः ।
शिवाशिवमुखज्वालाजालपल्लवितावनि ॥ ३६ ॥

gṛdhrābhracchannasūryāṃśucitājvalananistamaḥ |
śivāśivamukhajvālājālapallavitāvani || 36 ||

Flights of flying vultures shaded the sunbeams on high, and the burning piles drove the darkness below; the fearful glare of open mouthed jackals flashed on all sides, as they were flames of living fire.
