Hymn as Romanized text
sA brahmEti hOvAcha
brahmaNO vA etad vijayE mahIyadhvamiti
tatO haiva vidA~jchakAra brahmEti || 4.1 ||
(sA brahma iti ha uvAcha
brahmaNO vA etad vijayE mahIyadhvam iti
tatO ha Eva vidA~jchakAra brahma iti || )
Meaning of the Prayer Hymn:
She (Uma) replied, "It is Brahman"!
"It is in the victory of Brahman that you get your glory!"
Then only he came to know that It was Brahman!
1. mahIyadvam - glorified; vidA~jchakAra - knew
2. The Shakti - who is both Tirodana as well as Krupa Shakti -
shows to the mature soul the Supreme Shiva. That is
what is happening in this Upanishadic episode.
