यथा वा —
मातर् माद्रि गता कुतस् त्वम् अधुना हा क्वासि पाण्डो पितः
सान्द्रानन्द-सुधाब्धिर् एष युवयोर् नाभूद् दृशां गोचरः ।
इत्य् उच्चैर् नकुलानुजो विलपति प्रेक्ष्य प्रमोदाकुलो

Another example [of relatives being the object of karuṇa-rasa]:
“Seeing the intense effulgence emanting from the two lotus feet of Govinda, Sahadeva, overcome with bliss, began to lament. ‘O mother Mādrī! Where

have you gone? O father Paṇḍu! Where are you? You could not see Kṛṣṇa, the ocean of sweet bliss!”
