Meaning: O Jewel of the solar race! This is the most appropriate time to fulfill the promise you had made me. O Subjugator of the arrogance of Kaliyuga! One with the majestic gait of an elephant! Kali Purusha has an infernal plan to stage a holocaust wherein human beings will be sacrificed at the sacrificial rites of pseudo-faiths. To bestow your compassion, this is the right time.
