Katha Chopais

Bal Kand – Doha 13
Byās ādi kabi pungav nānā | jinha sādar hari sujasa bakhānā ||
ब्यास आदि कबि पुंगव नाना । जिन्ह सादर हरि सुजस बखाना ॥
Vyasa and various other top-ranking poets, who have reverently recounted the blessed glory of Sri Hari, I bow to the lotus feet of them all; let them fulfil all my desires.

Bal Kand – Doha 18
Jān ādikabi nām pratāpu | bhayau sudhdha kari ulatā jāpu ||
जान आदिकबि नाम प्रतापू । भयऊ सुद्द करि उलटा जापू ॥
The oldest poet (Valmiki) is acquainted with the glory of the Name, inasmuch as he attained to purity by repeating it in the reverse order.
