I offer Siva
one Bilvapatra, Which has three leaves,
Which signifies the three qualities of sattva, rajas and
tamas, Which has three leaves like the three eyes (of

Siva),
Which resembles the three categories of weapon,
and Which absolves the sins of three births.[1]

I will pray Siva


with bilva leaves, Which have three
shoots, Which are soft and free of holes, and Which are

auspicious. I offer one leaf of Bilva to Siva.[2]


When Nandike
svara is adored with an undivided
Bilva-leaf, then all the sins get purged. I offer one leaf

of Bilva to Siva.[3]

The offer one leaf of Bilva to Siva


is possibly equal
to the spiritual bliss attained by the offer of a saligrama
stone to a Brahman.[4]
Giving millions of elephants in charity, performing
hundreds of V
ajapeya sacrifice, or giving away millions of daughters in marriage equal the offering of one

Bilva-leaf to Siva.[5]

I offer a Bilva-tree to Siva,


Which is born from the
breast of Laks.m, and Which is dear to Mah
adeva.

I offer one leaf of Bilva to Siva.[6]


The sight and touch of a Bilva-tree absolves the
sins, even the most heinous of sins. I offer one leaf of

Bilva to Siva.[7]
Having seen the region of K
a
s, having seen the temple of K
alabhairava, and having seen M
adhava in

Pray
aga, I offer one leaf of Bilva to Siva.[8]
The base of Bilva-leaf represents Brahma, the mid
dle represents Vis.n.u, and the top represents Siva.
I

offer one leaf of Bilva to Siva.[9]


Those who recite this sacred Bilv
as.t.akam near

Siva shall be freed from all the sins and will attain

the abode of Siva.[10]
