भास उवाच ।
साधो स्वागतताद्यैव दिष्ट्या दृष्टोऽसि मानद ।
कुशलं तु कुतोऽस्माकं संसारे तिष्ठतामिह ॥ ९ ॥

bhāsa uvāca |
sādho svāgatatādyaiva diṣṭyā dṛṣṭo'si mānada |
kuśalaṃ tu kuto'smākaṃ saṃsāre tiṣṭhatāmiha || 9 ||

Bhasa replied:—O good friend! you are fortunately and happily met here this day; but how can we expect to have our peace and rest so long as we have to remain in this world of strife and vale of misery.
