Accordingly: “... and that young prince had ten ministers of his own: [Bhīmaparākrama... and others]... They were all of good birth, young, brave and wise, and devoted to their master’s interests. And Mṛgāṅkadatta led a happy life with them in his father’s house, but he did not obtain a suitable wife”.
