सुदुर्लभं दर्शन नायकानां स्वभ्यागतं ते भवरागमर्दन ।
सुचिरस्य ते दर्शनमद्य लोके परिपूर्ण कल्पान शतेभि दृश्यसे ॥ ३९ ॥

sudurlabhaṃ darśana nāyakānāṃ svabhyāgataṃ te bhavarāgamardana |
sucirasya te darśanamadya loke paripūrṇa kalpāna śatebhi dṛśyase || 39 ||

Most rare (and precious) is the sight of the Leaders. Be welcome, thou dispeller of worldly defilement. It is after a long time that thou now appearest in the world; after hundreds of complete Aeons one (now) beholds thee.
