(15) 'Is there any other yogi
perseverance and determination who, desiring the perfections that for

S'rîvatsa mark on the chest, the Kaustubha gem, the
flower garland, the disc, the conch shell, the club and other symbols. Once He as an indelible image has appeared in

intoxicating beverage. Overwhelmed by all that intoxicating drinking
she with her associates next loudly sang and danced, making fun
the heads at each other like they were balls.

men who carried him: 'Oh carriers, please walk in pace! Why is this
palanquin carried so uneven?'
