[...] The celestial ladies made these sweet witty remarks to Him one by one. [...] Sarasvatī said:—‘O great lord, Satī who was more than your life to you has now joyously rejoined you. O lover, seeing the face of your beloved of moon-like splendour, cast off the heat of your distress. Spend your time, O lord of time, in the close embrace of Satī. Thanks to my fervent wish, there will be no separation (viśleṣa) at any time between you both’”.
