1.       The yogi named Vemana hath shone forth in the world; bow to him, ye men of virtue! While ye reverence him he will bestow on your sustenence and perfection. Listen, O Vema, dear to the lord of all!


2.       When I cry "Speak, O God," why speakest thou not? O speak to me, and powerfully! Speak, O father, surely I shall recognize thy voice!
