अथ वियोगे, यथा —
अघस्य जठरानलात् फणि-ह्रदस्य च क्ष्वेडतो
दवस्य कवलाद् अपि त्वम् अवितात्र येषाम् अभूः ।
इतस् त्रितयतो’प्य् अतिप्रकट-घोर-धाटी-धरात्
कथं न विरह-ज्वराद् अवसितान् सखीन् अद्य नः ॥३.३.११६॥

davasya kavalād api tvam avitātra yeṣām abhūḥ |
itas tritayato’py atiprakaṭa-ghora-dhāṭī-dharāt
kathaṃ na viraha-jvarād avasitān sakhīn adya naḥ

English translation

Viyoga(separation after meeting):
“You protected us, Your friends, from the fire of digestion of Aghāsura, from the poison of Kāliya and from the appetite of the forest fire. But how will You protect us despairing friends from the attack of the fever of separation—which is far more ferocious than any of those three dangers?”
