There the Command is very well known, it saves from the abyss of phenomenal existence and is Khañjinī (i.e. Kubjikā), the wealth of liberation (mokṣalakṣmī)”.

In the first (birth your) name (was) Subhagā and Kāladūtī in the second birth. You (were) Revatī in the third and Mokṣalakṣmī in the fourth. You (were) Durga in the fifth birth and Jayeśvarī in the sixth. In the previous birth—the seventh—you (were) Umā, my favourite. You became my wife on Himavat’s mountain. [...]”.
