On an auspicious moment, Marudwati delivered a boy & illumined hermitage 
The infinite joy of parents overflowing touched one and all in every hermitage The waxing moon of the Tapovana was baptised as 9 Markandeya a holy name 
It brought honour to parents by austerity and devotion of rare type & fame.

Streams of visitors flowed into asram to feast eyes with his beauty sans end Among the famous the reputed 10Saptarishis visit deserves mention reverent Struck with 11souseelya they said 12deerghayshman bhava' in tone resonant The grief-stricken parents then narrated the boys fate & moaned san end. 

They advised the boy to chant 13Panchakshri as the only means left for him
And offered to take him to 14 Brahmaloka for the blessing of long life by HIM
The helpless parents nodded, hoping Bramh's intercession might prolong life
Swept by 15divyasobha visible in face&robe, Bramh said "My you've long life"
