to me just as you blessed ARJUNA-the son of PANDU. You are adorned with
shining yellow raiment.
You destroyed demons in battle. Your form is exquisite. You incarnated

Oh progenitor of Cupid! Conquerer of the demon MURA! Your tresses are
adorned with lovely fragrant flowers. You shine with golden crown, encrusted
with diamond and other precious gems.
