आदिपर्व :  अखिल्युस-कोप

अखिल्युस क्रोश कराल!  देवि, प्रवच अधुना सलय,
गाथा अमिट अकाल, रौद्र यवन दुर्धर्ष की!
रोषि असीम अथाह!  प्रेषित अगणित वीरगति,
श्वान-गृद्ध प्रति ग्रास, हन्ति अनेक रणिष्णु जिन!
नियति यथा विधाय, देव-प्रवर द्यौ-पितृ यत!

अविकल सकल सुमानसी, अथ तव अब आख्यान!
भिडे यदा योद्धा युगल, किम निमित्त केहि मान,
अखिल्युस अमोघ पल्युस तनय, अत्रेय आगमम्नान?

Adiparva: “akhilyusa-kopa”

akhilyusa krosha karAla! devi, pravacha adhunA salaya,
gAthA amiTa akAla, raudra yavana durdharSha kI!
roShi asIma athAha! preShita agaNita vIragati,
shvAna-gR^iddha prati grAsa, hanti aneka raNiShNu jina!
niyati yathA vidhAya, deva-pravara dyau-pitR^i yat!

avikala sakala sumAnasI, atha tava aba AkhyAna!
bhiDe yadA yoddhA yugala, kim nimitta kehi mAna,
akhilyusa amogha palyusa tanaya, Atreya AgamamnAna?

  1. Sir,

    I love your posts.. It is very informative..

    I also request you to kindly translate these verses in hindi or english so that a person like me can understand

  2. Vivek, thank you, but this post is actually in Hindi only, although uses, I think, many Sanskrit words not that common in daily speech. Let me know which lines are hard to grasp. Feedback will help.

  3. Very interesting. :-) Quite a lot of skill you must have to translate this! Especially with metre.
    “पैल्युश” and “अत्रि-सुत” are nice touches. I don’t know enough Hindi unfortunately…
    (BTW perhaps “एखिलिस” could very well be something closer to the original Greek, perhaps अखिल्लेउस ? The Hindi “ए” seems a bit long to me, but I may be pronouncing Hindi incorrectly.)
