THE UNFAILING POWER

When informed of plight, He assured of making a plea with Siva for long life
Leaving the lad with parents now death-proof, they left wishing him long life
Markandeya with redoubled zeal and unceasing efforts multiplied acts piety
Chanting 16Namassivaya even in sleep, reached the last day of his life mighty.

Noting coming of last minute, parents, seated him at 17Sivalinga for prayers Markandeya pursued an unswerving course for winning Him by long prayers  18Yamadutas coming thereto taking his life at the expiry of life's duration Were repelled by 19Tejas uncommon emanating from him, in meditation.

Hearing the report and deciding to do his duty a 20Yama himself appeared
But seeing him immersed in impenetrable 21Dhyana samadhi he despaired
Wishing to play his role in all sincerity, he threw his long potent nose
Alas! it went round Siva Linga, besides boy's neck sans his intent or ruse.
