Bud’dhyā vināpi vibudhārcita – pādapīṭha!
Stōtuṁ samudyata – mati – rvigatatrapōham |
Bālaṁ vihāya jala – sansthitamindubimba
Man’yaḥ ka icchati janaḥ sahasā grahītum ||3||
“Your tabouret has been worshiped by all heavenly gods. Oh sublime Lord! I have no wisdom to even begin composing a verse of prayer to you. Please pardon my insolence and lack of wisdom even to want to attempt such an impossible task.” This is like the act of an innocent child who craves or dares to carry out an impossible task of catching the reflection of the moon in the water. But still, 0 Jina! inspite of my ignorance, out of impudence alone I am trying to eulogize you, the one who has been revered by the Devas.
