O the jewel among women

To test his beloved Sathi, who was in deep meditation, Lord Siva appeared before her as an elderly Brahmin and spoke thus.

O the jewel among women, O good-natured
don’t consider me a stranger and tell me what you want
Do not punish your tender, beautiful body
what desire drives you to such travails?

O Neelakanta, ocean of goodness

Brought up by her parents who lavished love on her, the girl Sathi grew up and became proficient in the arts and famous. Since childhood Sathi wished to have Lord Siva as her husband and did penance with that aim in mind.

O Neelakanta, ocean of goodness, Supreme Being,
victory to you, O friend of the weak
I desire to see your auburn locks,
the crescent on your head
