Know and then speak

जमट्ठं तु न जाणेज्जा, एवमेयंति नो वए

He (Kubera) made the city Vinita, also called Ayodhya, twelve yojanas long and nine wide. After laying it out, the Yaksa-king, free from deceit, filled it unceasingly with inexhaustible clothes, ornaments, money, and grain. Even without a wall (as background for painting) a painting was made in the sky from the variegated light from palaces of diamond, sapphire, and cat’s eye.

Sāmbhaḷajō tumē adbhuta vātō

Listen to Sāmbhaḷajō tumē adbhuta vātō

Bhāva: 3 Varṣanā bālamuni vajrasvāmī nē ēmanā jīvana nī adbhuta kahānī

Sāmbhaḷajō tumē adbhuta vātō,
vayara kunvara munivaranī rē;
Ṣaṭ mahinānā guru jhōḷīmāṁ,
āvē kēli karantā rē,
Traṇa varasanā sādhavī mukhathī,
aṅga agīyāra bhaṇantā rē.

…Sāṁ.1
