esam anudhyeya-padabja-yugmam
jagad-gurum mangala-mangalam svayam
yah ksatra-bandhuh paribhuya surin
prasasti dhrstas tad ayam hi dandyah
esam—of all these (exalted personalities); anudhyeya—to be constantly meditated upon; pada-abja-yugmam—whose two lotus feet; jagat-gurum—the spiritual master of the whole world; mangala-mangalam—personification of the topmost religious principle; svayam—himself; yah—he who; ksatra-bandhuh—the lowest of the ksatriyas; paribhuya—overriding; surin—the demigods (like Brahma and the others); prasasti—chastises; dhrstah—impudent; tat—therefore; ayam—this person; hi—indeed; dandyah—to be punished.
This Citraketu is the lowest of ksatriyas, for he has impudently overridden Brahma and the other demigods by insulting Lord Siva, upon whose lotus feet they always meditate. Lord Siva is personified religion and the spiritual master of the entire world, and therefore Citraketu must be punished.
All the members of the assembly were exalted brahmanas and self-realized souls, but they did not say anything about the conduct of Lord Siva, who was embracing the goddess Parvati on his lap. Citraketu nonetheless criticized Lord Siva, and therefore the opinion of Parvati was that he should be punished.
