He, on whose arm fame was inscribed by the sword, when, in battle in the vanga countries (Bangal), He kneaded (and turned) back with (his) breast the enemies who, uniting together, came against (him), -- he, by whom, having crossed in warfare the seven mouths of the (rivers)s indhu, the vahlikas were conquered, he, by the breezes of whose prowess the southern ocean is even still perfumed,--he, the remant of the great zeal of whose energy, which utterly destroyed (his) enemies, like ( the remnant of the greate clowing heat) of a burned out fired in a great forest, even now leaves not the earth; though he, the king, as if wearied, has quitted this earth, and gone to the other world, moving in (bodily) form to the land ( of paradise) won by (the merit of his) actions, (but) remaining on(this) earth by (the memory of his) fame, -- by him, the king, -- who attained sole supreme sovereignty in the world, acquired by his own arm and (enjoyed) for a very long time; (and) who, having the name of Chandra, carried a beauty of countenance like (the beauty of) the full-moon-having in faith fixed his mind upon (the God) vishnu, this lofty standard of he divine Vishnu was set up on the hill.
