वाल्मीकिरुवाच ।
अहं बद्धो विमुक्तः स्यामिति यस्यास्ति निश्चयः ।
नात्यन्तमज्ञो नोत ज्ञः सोऽस्मिञ्छास्त्रेऽधिकारवान् ॥ २ ॥

vālmīkiruvāca |
ahaṃ baddho vimuktaḥ syāmiti yasyāsti niścayaḥ |
nātyantamajño nota jñaḥ so'smiñchāstre'dhikāravān || 2 ||

One convinced of his constraint (in this mortal world), and desiring his liberation from it, and, who is neither wholly ignorant of, nor quite conversant with divine knowledge, is entitled to (the perusal of) this work.
