    Due to the remnants of Karmic sins, I was created inside my mother’s womb, and placed between urine, excreta and heat, and suffered a lot by the heat and smell. Who can possibly describe the suffering and pain that I underwent there in mother's womb?. Therefore, O Siva! O Mahadeva! O Sambhu! Forgive me, I pray, for my transgressions.

King, Prahlada was always engrossed in the bliss of praying and prostrating before the lotus feet of Sri Hari at all times, while drinking, while eating, while talking, while smiling, playing, sleeping and performing such other actions, while moving around and while visualizing and forgot about this world. [Context: This beautiful sloka describes devotion of Prahlada who is one with the consciousness at all times and in all activites.]

    Oh King, it is easy to get a person that always says words that please you. However, it is very difficult to find someone who can say something that may be unpleasant to hear but is brings welfare to you. [Context: Demon Mareecha says this to Ravana, when Ravana approaches Mareecha to help him to take Sita away and he is angry that Mareecha refused to help him initially.]

    Rama is an embodiment of righteousness. Truth is his braveness. He is the lord of all worlds and everybody. [Context: Demon Mareecha says this to Ravana, when Ravana approaches Mareecha to help him to take Sita away. Mareecha says that Rama is nothing but righteousness and truth and warns him not to go to Rama and that Ravana is not enough to face him.]
