Example text

For HE lists to mortal's prayer springing from a heart like thine, And HE wills,—a noble daughter grace thy famed and royal line! ” Vanished then the Prayer-Maiden, and the king of noble fame, Aswapati, Lord of coursers, to his royal city came, Days of hope and nights of gladness Madra's happy monarch passed, Till his queen of noble offspring gladsome promise gave at last! As the moon each night increaseth, chasing darksome nightly gloom, Grew the unborn babe in splendour in its happy mother's womb, And in fulness of the season came a girl with lotus-eye, Father's hope and joy of mother, gift of kindly gods on high!

And our sacred writ ordaineth and our pious rishis sing, Transient meeting with the holy doth its countless blessings bring, Longer friendship with the holy purifies the mortal birth, Lasting union with the holy is the bright sky on the earth! ” VI Return Home Vanished then the Sable Monarch, and Savitri held her way Where in dense and darksome forest still her husband lifeless lay, And she sat upon the greensward by the cold unconscious dead, On her lap with deeper kindness placed her consort's lifeless head, And that touch of true affection thrilled him back to waking life, As returned from distant regions gazed the prince upon his wife!

Thou art trained in laws of duty, Arjun is unmatched in war, And on Bhima in the battle kindly shines his faithful star, And the Twins excel in wisdom, born to rule a mighty State, Fair Draupadi, ever faithful, wins the smiles of fickle Fate! Each with varied gifts endowéd, each beloved of one and all, Ye shall win a spacious empire, greater, mightier, after fall. This your exile, good Yudhishthir, is ordained to serve your weal, Is a trial and samadhi, for it chastens but to heal! Meru taught thee righteous maxims where Himalay soars above, And in Varnavata's forest Vyasa taught thee holy love, Rama preached the laws of duty far on Bhrigu's lofty hill, Sambhu showed the ‘way’ where floweth Drisad-vati's limpid rill, Fell from lips of saint Asita, words of wisdom deep and grave, Bhrigu touched with fire thy bosom by the dark Kalmashi's wave, Now once more the teaching cometh, purer, brighter, oftener taught, Learn the truth from heavenly Narad, happy is thy mortal lot!
