O Crescent-crowned, please hear my words
Story Play (Attakkatha):
Having listened to her father’s impious words, Sathi returned to Kailasa in haste, prostrated in front of Lord Siva and, with anger, fear and sorrow agitating her mind, spoke thus.
O Crescent-crowned, please hear my words,
my Lord, please forgive me for my insolence
Because I left without listening to your sensible words
I had to suffer all this humiliation, O Lord and Husband
Alas! I don’t care for the abuse I received from my father
but I could not bear the scorn he heaped on you
Please do not delay killing the cruel Daksha,
he is not my father any more.
