TRANSLATION
The lower part of the Lordís waist is dark and covered with yellow garments and a belt bedecked with golden embroidery work. His symmetrical lotus feet and the calves, thighs and joints of His legs are extraordinarily beautiful. Indeed, the Lordís entire body appears to be well built.
PURPORT
Lord Siva is one of the twelve great authorities mentioned in Srimad-Bhagavatam (6.3.20). These authorities are Svayambhu, Narada, Sambhu, Kumara, Kapila, Manu, Prahlada, Janaka, Bhisma, Bali, Vaiyasaki, or Sukadeva Gosvami, and Yamaraja. The impersonalists, who generally worship Lord Siva, should learn of the transcendental sac-cid-ananda-vigraha [Bs. 5.1] of the Lord. Here Lord Siva kindly describes the details of the Lordís bodily features. Thus the impersonalistsí argument that the Lord has no form cannot be accepted under any circumstance.
