tās taḿ su-vigna-manaso 'tha puraskṛtārbhāḥ
kāyaḿ nidhāya bhuvi bhūta-patiḿ praṇemuḥ

tāḥ — they, the wives of Kāliya; tam — to Him; su-vigna — very much agitated; manasaḥ — their minds; atha — then; puraḥ-kṛta — placing in front; arbhāḥ — their children; kāyam — their bodies; nidhāya — putting; bhuvi — upon the ground; bhūta-patim — to the Lord of all creatures; praṇemuḥ — they bowed down; sādhvyaḥ — the saintly ladies; kṛta-añjali-puṭāḥ — folding their hands in supplication; śamalasya — who was sinful; bhartuḥ — of their husband; mokṣa — the liberation; īpsavaḥ — desiring; śaraṇa-dam — He who grants shelter; śaraṇam — for shelter; prapannāḥ — they approached.
Their minds very much disturbed, those saintly ladies placed their children before them and then bowed down to the Lord of all creatures, laying their bodies flat upon the ground. They desired the liberation of their sinful husband and the shelter of the Supreme Lord, the giver of ultimate shelter, and thus they folded their hands in supplication and approached Him.
