caudda-śata sāta-śake māsa ye phālguna
paurṇamāsīra sandhyā-kāle haile śubha-kṣaṇa
caudda-śata sāta-śake — in 1407 of the Śaka Era (A.D. 1486); māsa — month; ye — which; phālguna — Phālguna; paurṇamāsīra — of the full-moon day; sandhyā-kāle — in the evening; haile — there was; śubha-kṣaṇa — an auspicious moment.
Thus in the year 1407 of the Śaka Era [A.D. 1486], in the month of Phālguna [February-March], in the evening of the full-moon day, the desired auspicious moment arrived.
