DEVOTION - NON - PAREIL

"What a strange co-incidence your Holiness! you visit me at a time 
When I've completed that auspicious 1Dwadasavrata in the fixed time 
And ready going with ardent devotees gracing the function for dinner 
Kindly accept hospitality and bless me with thy presence at dinner".

"What else do I want than partaking the fruit of thy 2Naimithika karma
As thy devotion to people and dedication to God won an ever green laurel 
I deem it a great honour to dine with you the 3Dharmaswarupa non-pariel 
I'll be back before the 4Punya ghatika's past, after bath-5Nitya Karma."

Considering the sage's visit a bolt form blue, 6Ambarisha made forthwith
Special arrangements befitting his status, and waited with retinue and kith 
But the short-tempered egoistic sage cared not to honour his word duly,
With the running of sands, Ambarisha's anxiety reached the meridian duly.

To gain the merit of the 7vrata, one must dine before punya ghatika's past 
It's a sastric injunction that confers merit, if only one holds to it fast 
Seeing dilemma, 8Guru advised 9Vudakaparana-sipping of water by him 
Which amounts to neither dining, nor it allows the merit slip from him.
