<< Chapter 11 verse 43


tasmāt praṇamya praṇidhāya kāyaṁ
prasādaye tvām aham īśam īḍyam
piteva putrasya sakheva sakhyuḥ
priyaḥ priyāyārhasi deva soḍhum

‘Therefore bowing and with body bent, I ask
grace of Thee, Lord and Adorable! As Father to son, as Friend to friend, t’is meet, O Lord! to bear with me, as Lover to the loved.’

Inasmuch as Thou art Father of all; the Most Adorable; the Teacher; and the Exalted above all, by thy Mercy and other virtues, I implore Thee, Lord Adorable!, —by bowing, and by stretching myself before Thee at full length,— to smile on Me in grace. Though culprit the son, yet as the father reconciles himself to him; and as a friend overlooks a friend’s (defects), and as thus harmony and benignity establish themselves, as a result of supplication, so do Thou, O most Merciful! suffer —Thou, the Lover,— with me, Thy beloved.
