|His friends in
Karaikal, who resolved to compel him to receive his first wife again, knew his return and
prosperity.Accordingly they proceeded to the new residence of the merchant, taking his
saintly wife in a litter.
When her husband heard
that his first wife was staying in a grove outside the town, he proceeded with his second
wife and daughter, to the place where his first wife was camping.
Reaching there, the husband at once prostrated with profoundest
reverence before her, saying: "Your slave is
happy here and prosperous through your benediction. To my daughter, I have given your
sacred name and I constantly adore you as my tutelary goddess."
