TRANSLATION
Sri Pariksit said: Arriving in Sivaloka, from a distance the sage Narada saw Lord Siva, Sri Hara, who had just finished his worship of Lord Sankarsana, Sri Hari. Entranced in ecstatic love, Lord Siva was dancing and loudly singing the glories of the Lord, while his associates played instrumental music and shouted “Jaya! Jaya!” With great affection he praised his assistants like Nandisvara, as well as the goddess Uma, who was expertly clapping her hands. The sight of all this delighted Narada. Vibrating his vena and nodding his head to show respect, he called out several times, “You are the greatest recipient of Krsna’s mercy!” and in a sweet voice he recounted to Lord Siva everything just told to him by their father, Lord Brahma.

TRANSLATION
Since the demigods are endowed with the mode of goodness, the false pride of considering oneself the Lord should certainly not affect them. When I break the false prestige of those bereft of goodness, My purpose is to bring them relief.

By My mystic power I will completely counteract this disturbance caused by Indra. Demigods like Indra are proud of their opulence, and out of foolishness they falsely consider themselves the Lord of the universe. I will now destroy such ignorance.
