O mistress of Kula, it is worshipped by the troupes of Siddhas and by the Yoginīs. This is the reality of my life, O dear one, it is my wealth. I am myself its creator and I am (its) worshipper.

He is the master of the worlds and their father. She is considered the mother. Let this proper alliance increase for ever like the moon”.
