Oh friend! Do you remember that once we went to the forest to fetch firewood as ordered by our guru's wife?
After we gathered firewood and tied them up as bundles and were carrying them on our heads, dark night fell and heavy rains poured. So we spent the night holding our hands together. Do you remember at all?
At dawn did not our preceptor, the gem among the teachers, upon witnessing the hardships we underwent due to the devotion to him bless us?
Lord Krishna, whose brilliance excels that of the sun, and who is worthy of praise by all, conversed with Kucela thus!
