A daughter by name Pratapadevi was born in the house of this preceptor of the gods, who
was ever in search of her beloved who * * * in the (sva) yamvara was like the heavens
without the moon, the lotus without the sun, Rati deserted by Kamadeva, Kamala (Lakshmi),
the * * * preserved by the clouds. She, the daughter of Guru Ganda, the abode of all
beauties and politeness * * * was like Sita, who came forth from the ground of sacrifice,
whom, of a worthy family and the abode of all blessings centred in one place, the best of
poets imagine variously to be a lotus-stalk in the lake of gracefulness, the wife of
Shripati (Vishnu ?), infant Sarasvati (?) and * * * ofSamararipu (Shankara).
