If you choose to appear before me, will any material wealth of yours be lost? I am conscious that destiny is irrevocable. Will I therefore aspire for anything beyond what I deserve, and be disappointed?
Judge me on what I am really, and understand my appeals on your own. I do not seek any boon from you. O chief of the Devas! Destroyer of sins. O charming beauty, lord of Vaidehi. This is the most opportune time
to relieve me of my distress. You know fully well that I never approach any other God. Yet you want to prevail over this weakling you disregard. Is that valour? Devas and even asuras will not appreciate this.
