स्वयं दत्वैव दत्वैव भूतभिक्षां जिघृक्षति ।
तिमिरालीककबरी इन्द्वर्कचपलेक्षणा ॥ ५३ ॥

svayaṃ datvaiva datvaiva bhūtabhikṣāṃ jighṛkṣati |
timirālīkakabarī indvarkacapalekṣaṇā || 53 ||

The dreaded goddess Kali wearing the veil of darkness over her face, and eying all with her eyeballs, as bright as the orbs of the sun and moon, gives to all beings all their wants, in order to grasp and gorge them in herself.
