Katha Chopais

Janam ek dui kahau bakhāni | Sāvdhān sunu sumati bhavāni ||
जनम एक दुइ कहऊँ बखानी । सावधान सुनु सुमति भवानी ॥
I will refer to one or two such births at some length; please listen attentively, O wise Bhavani.

Sāvdhān sunu sumukhi sulochani | Bharat kathā bhava bandh bimochani ||
सावधान सुनु सुमुखि सुलोचनि । भरत कथा भव बंध बिमोचनि ॥
Listen attentively, O fair-faced and bright-eyed lady; the story of Bharata loosens the bounds of worldly existence.
