yat—of which; upajosanat—because of using the fragrant water; bhavanyah—of Bhavani, the wife of Lord Siva; anucarinam—of attendant maidservants; punya-jana-vadhunam—who are wives of the most pious Yaksas; avayava—of the bodily limbs; sparsa—from contact; sugandha-vatah—the wind, which becomes fragrant; dasa-yojanam—up to ten yojanas (about eighty miles); samantat—all around; anuvasayati—makes fragrant.
