Anybody who knows and has the time:
vR^kshasya mUla sekena shAkA puShyanti vai yathA |
shivE rudra japaath prIte, prItA evAsya devatAhA ||
This is a generally quoted praise for Rudra Japa. I understand most of the verse. In this line what does "asya" exactly refer to i.e. kasya and what does it qualify? I would have thought the word "anena" would have been used to say "by this (japa)" all devataas are pleased.
Your help is appreciated.
