ज्ञातत्वदागमोऽप्येवं त्वां पृच्छामीह यन्मुने ।
भवद्वाक्यामृतास्वादवाञ्छितं प्रविजृम्भते ॥ १६ ॥

jñātatvadāgamo'pyevaṃ tvāṃ pṛcchāmīha yanmune |
bhavadvākyāmṛtāsvādavāñchitaṃ pravijṛmbhate || 16 ||

Though thus we know this as the cause of your calling into us; yet it is our desire of satisfying ourselves with the sweetness of your nectarious words, that has prompted to propose this query to you at present.
