pura visva-srjam satre
sanuga munayo ’gnayah
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
The sage Maitreya said: In a former time, the leaders of the universal creation performed a great sacrifice in which all the great sages, philosophers, demigods and fire-gods assembled with their followers.
Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
Upon being asked by Vidura, the sage Maitreya began to explain the cause of the misunderstanding between Lord Siva and Daksa, because of which the goddess Sati gave up her body. Thus begins the history of a great sacrifice performed by the leaders of the universal creation, namely Marici, Daksa and Vasistha. These great personalities arranged for a great sacrifice, for which demigods like Indra and the fire-gods assembled with their followers. Lord Brahma and Lord Siva were also present.
