If you still withhold your grace, how can I bear it? Can't you condescend to bless me, overwhelmed with love for you? O Spouse of SIta! You are known to have appeared as a Teacher to protect your devotees. How much can I put up with? Still, do you refrain from coming? Will men be happy with your response? Whom else can I beg? There are gods and gods, but none like you. You are the wind that dispels the clouds of evil-minded men. You are the unique God. Your eyes rival the beauty of the lotus. Holder of the GOvardhana hill. O King of Raghus! No wonder devotees look up to you for freedom from fear.
