Part 8: Śītala’s omniscience

The Teacher of the World went again to Sahasrām-ravaṇa and stood there in pratimā beneath a wavy-leafed fig tree. After he had mounted the second pure meditation, like a soldier a rampart, the Teacher of the World destroyed the ghātikarmas like enemies. On the fourteenth day of the black half of Pauṣa, when the moon was in Pūrvāṣāḍhā, Śītala Svāmin’s omniscience arose.
