Why looked petrified and stare into my eyes 2Droupadi dear
Has my senescence
uttered anything inauspicious causing fear
Didn't I say "May you've a
fortunate son" instead of 3Mahavira
Whose peerless Valour wrests the
much-coveted title 4Lokaikavira.
Did you except me bless for a righteous raja, as that of 5Sri Rama ?
whose ethereal beauty excels that of 6Neelameghasyama ?
Or one whose intellect
settles many disputes insoluble of 7devaloka?
Or one whose tapassakti draws the
Trio on and again to 8Bhuloka?
Or one whose 9Ekachchtradhipatya keeps 10Viswavijetas in fear?
one whose 11Dhamanirnaya wrings from 12Yama many a joyous tear?
Or one whose 13astrakousalya brings 14patalagana with a mere arrow?
Or one whose 15danaseela
arrays gods with bowls to tide over sorrow?
one whose 16satyavakyapalana sold away wife and son in alien town?
whose 17ajeysakti carried 18sanjivi mount on palm for saving life?
Or one whose
soul force garnered sea in 19kamandal for 20Indiar's crown?
Or one whose
21vratadiksha scarified his son sans any mental strife?
