Indra, having come to know that Arjuna has attained the divine weapon from Lord Siva, and hence, desirous of bringing Arjuna to Heaven, told thus to Mathali, his charioteer and who was already present before him with bowing hands

Hey, Mathali, listen to my words 

From Lord Siva – swiftly – Paasupatha Arrow – having properly attained – by Arjuna now

The one with adorable qualities – a king and very valorous – my son is – know that adequately

Such a heroic one – in these three worlds – Anywhere – cannot be seen – If you consider

Great heavenly missions – several are there – by the power of Partha – to be realized – He is not a lethargic one

Leaving out apathy, you bring Arjuna here – Do not delay
