Book I.-- The conference between Krishna and Na'RADA.

Salutation to the fortunate GANESA !

fa9afa:itafquifecsopofoaretag ausfal
वसन्ददवितरन्तमम्बराविरण्यगर्भाङ्गभुवंमुनिहरिः ॥९॥

1. Hari, husband of Sri, dwelling in the fortunate abode of Vasudeva, to reform the world, though himself the abode of worlds, saw descending from the sky, the sage, who sprang from a portion of the being, that was conceived in the golden mundane egg.

विधाकृतात्माकिमयंदिवाकरोविधूमरोचिःकिमयंहताशनः । गतन्तिरवीनमनूरुमार थे प्रसिवमूईज्वञ्चलनंहविर्भुजः । पतत्यधोधामविसारिसर्वतःकिमेतदित्याकलमीक्षितंजनैः ॥२॥

2. Is this the Sun itself parted into two orbs ? Is it fire shining with light divested of smoke? The motion of the luminary whose charioteer has no legs is curvilinear. The ascent of fame is a well known property of fire. What is this, which descends diffusing light around ? Thus was the sage contemplated by wonder by the people.
