रक्षांस्यप्यविनीतानि बद्धानि निगडैर्घनैः ।
धर्मार्थकामैरन्योन्यं चयापचयवर्जितैः ॥ २० ॥

rakṣāṃsyapyavinītāni baddhāni nigaḍairghanaiḥ |
dharmārthakāmairanyonyaṃ cayāpacayavarjitaiḥ || 20 ||

I have manacled the lawless Rakshasas, in strong chains and fetters; and kept my cares of religious duties, and those of my treasures and personal enjoyments within proper bounds, and without letting them clash with one another.
