Part 14: Expedition of conquest

Then Śārṅgabhṛt subdued the southern half of Bharata with the lords of Māgadha, Varadāman, Prabhāsa. In the Magadhas Mādhava lifted easily a rock being lifted by a crore of men and cheerfully set it down like a cover (of the earth). Then Puruṣottama, having a reception, as it were, given by the ocean holding high waves,[1] went to his own city Dvāravatī. There Viṣṇu’s installation as Ardhacakrin was made by Soma, Rāma, and other kings with great joy.
