O Handsome Lord of cidambara! Had you been endowed with Father and Mother who bore You laboriously and brought up with pride, would You have been subjected to these disgraces?
While somebody pelts a stone at You, while someone else, to the horripilation, kicks You with a cappal, another one strikes with a bow called gANDiva, yet another, unflinchingly, cuts you with his hand-axe, somebody from the crowd abuses you 'mad' and 'ghost' and the King of madurA beats you flinging a cane - O Lord, prey tell me, whom did you think of at those times?
gANDIva - arjuna - http://www.shaivam.org/siddhanta/makira.html
