Glory of Bilva

(Shiva Purana - Vidyeshwara Samhita 22)

Shiva
महादेवस्वरूपोऽयं बिल्वो देवैरपि स्तुतः ।
यथाकथञ्चिदेतस्य महिमा ज्ञायते कथम् ॥२२॥
Mahaadeva-Svaruupo-[A]yam Bilvo Devair-Api Stutah |
Yathaa-Kathan.[m]-Cid-Rtasya Mahimaa Jnyaayate Katham ||22||

1: The Bilva tree is of the form of Mahadeva, which is praised even by the devas,
2: How indeed can one know the glory of this tree?

Shiva
पुण्यतीर्थानि यावन्ति लोकेषु प्रथितान्यपि ।
तानि सर्वाणि तीर्थानि बिल्वमूले वसन्ति हि ॥२३॥
Punnyatiirthaani Yaavanti Lokessu Prathitaanyapi |
Taani Sarvaanni Tiirthaani Bilvamuule Vasanti Hi ||23||

1: The holy pilgrimages which are well-known in this world,
2: All those pilgrimages reside at the root of the Bilva tree.
