Natyadbhutam bhuvana bhushana! bhutanatha

bhutairgunairbhuvi bhavantam abhishtuvantah.

Tulya bhavanti bhavato nanu tena kim va

Bhutyashritam ya iha natmasamam karoti?

O Lord of the living! O Eminence of the world! It is not surprising that he who is engrossed in praise of your infinite virtues (assimilating the virtues in his conduct) attains your exalted position. It should not be surprising if a benevolent master makes his subjects his equals. In fact, what is the use of serving such a master who does not allow his dependents to prosper to an exalted position like his ?
