    21. Vis`ramya vis`ramya vanee drumaan`aam
    Chaayaasu tanvii vicacaara kaacit
    Stanoottariiyeen`a karooddhruteena
    Nivaarayantii s`as`inoo mayuukhaan.

    Here, the poet is describing the condition of a lass who is suffering from separation from her lover. Her body is emaciated. She goes to woods to cool herself, but suffers from the urges provoked by the moonlight. (In Indian ancient works, the poets used moonlight as a tool of poetry. They represented it a as a tormentor of separated lovers arousing passions and aggravating the pangs of longing for union.). Unable to bear her separation, she is trying to protect her breasts from the moonlight by covering them with the edges of her saree. The poet depicted her, while she was moving under the shades of trees.

    22. Aadars`anee dars`ana maatra kaamaa,
    drisht`vaa parishvanga sukhaika loolaa,
    Aaalingitaayaam punaraayataakshyaam,,
    Aas`aa smahee vigrahayoor abheedam.

    The poet discusses the stages of states of thinking of a lover.

    Stage 1: Till the beloved is seen, he will declare himself to be fortunate if he could have her vision.

    Stage 2: Once he sees her, he desires to embrace her.

    Stage 3: Once he embraces her, he desires that he should not part with her embrace.

    23. Maalatii s`irasi jrimbhan`oonmukhii
    Candanam vapushi kumkumaanilam
    Vakshasi priyatamaa madaalasaa
    Svarga eesha paris`isht`a agataha.

    Here, the poet is the describing the fortune of the man who wears in his hair a garland of fresh bloomed jasmin flowers, applies a paste of saffron and sandalwood all over his body and embraces his beloved. The poet describes such person as experiencing the blissful pleasures of heaven on this Earth itself.

    24. Praang maameeti manaaganaagata (amaanita gun`am) rasam,
    jaataabhilaasham tataha
    Savriid`am, tadanu s`lathiikrita tanu (s`lathoodyama matha),
    Pratyasta dhairyam punaha,
    Preemaardram s`ruhan`iiya nirbharaha
    kriid`aa pragalbham, tatoo
    Niss`ankaanga vikarshan`aadhika sukham
    Ramyam kulastrii ratam.

    The poet is describing the joys of intercourse with one’s own wife. In the first line he describes the stage 1 of the wife, who says ‘No, don’t, don’t!’ initially, and changes her stance, when desire is born in her.


    In stage 2, her body language changes to indicate a sort of modesty.

    In stage 3, she forgets her own state and body. She stops resisting. She sheds resistive courage. Then she gets herself imbued with love and reciprocates.


    In stage 4, she develops greater self-confidence, self-assertive by the elegant enjoying experience of active participation in the intercourse.


    In stage 5, she sheds all inhibitions and totally engages in the act, enjoying from the foreplay and the actual play.

    25. Urasi nipatiinaam,
    srasta dhammillakaanaam,
    Mukul`ita nayanaanaam,
    kincid unmiilitaanaam,
    Upari surata kheeda
    svinnna gand`a sthalaan aam
    Aadhara madhu vadhuun aam,
    bhaagya vantaha pibati.

    The poet describes the fortune of those who imbibe/suck the nectar from the lips of their beloveds resting on their chests with scattered hair and half-closed eyes in ecstasy, with forehead and cheeks filled with sweat drops arising from intercourse-born fatigue.

    26. Amiilita nayanaanaam
    yaha surata rasoo-anu samvidam bhaati,
    mithunair mithoo avadhaaritam
    avitatham idam eeva kaama nirvahan`am.

    Accoring to Hindu ethical life of a householder, there are four sub-goals of life for him: 1. Dharma (Virtuous behavior) 2. Artha (Material possessions and money) 3. Kaama (love life) 4. Mooksha (Liberation).


    The poet is discussing the third goal ‘kaama’ here. The couple engaged in embrace with their eyes half-closed in bliss and behaving accordingly in harmony, will be managing and accomplishing their function of kaama.

    27. Idam anucitam akramas ca pums aam
    yad ihajaraas vapi maanmathaa vikaaraaha,
    yad api ca na kritam nitambiniin aam
    stana patana avadhi jiivitam ratam vaa.

    Here, the poet is pointing out two injustices he observes in this Nature. 1. The Males: continuing to be tormented by lust, even after their body becomes old and emaciated. 2. Women: living and craving for intercourse even after their breasts fall off.

    28. Raajan!, thrushn`a amburaas`eer nahi
    jagati kaschidee va avasaanam
    koova arthoo arthaih prabhuu taih
    sva vapushi gali`itee yauvanee sa anuraage?
    Gacchaamaha sadma yaavad vikasita
    Nayaneendiivara aalookiinaam (kumudeendiivara aalookiinaam),
    Akramyaa aakramya ruupam jhad`iti
    Na jaraayaa lupyatiee preeyas`iinaam.

    Here, the poet is commenting on the futility of youthful persons wasting away their youth in the service of kings, while trying to earn riches. He says, as if from the voices of the servants and soldiers:


    “Oh King! There is nobody who has successfully swum the endless ocean of ‘desire’ before death. What is the use of the wealth, if a person spends all his youth in acquiring the wealth? Hence Oh King! Please permit us to go homes and spend our days looking into the lotus eyes of our beloveds, before their beauty is deprived of by old age.

    29. Raagasya aagaaram eekam,
    naraka s`ata mahaa duhkha sampraapti heetuhu,
    moohasyootpatti biijam,
    jaladhara pat`alam gnaana taaraa adhipasya,
    kandarpsya aika mitram,
    prakat`ita vividhas ca asht`a doosha prabandham,
    lookee asmin nahi anartha vraja kula bhavanam (kusuma vanam)
    yauvanaad anyad asti.

    The poet wonders: Is there any perilious fort in this world, other than the ‘youth’ which is the:


    a) chief den for ‘desire and greed’
    b) reason for several addictions, miseries, sins and hells
    c) seed for the germination of lust, passion and temptation
    d) dark cloud for hiding the moon of true knowledge
    e) promoter of intense different eight sins?

    30. S`ringaara druma niiradee
    prasrumara kriid`aa rasa srootasi
    pradyumna priya baandhavee
    catura vaang muktaa phalood anvati,
    tanvii neetra cakoora paarvan`a vidhau,
    saubhaagya lakshmii nidhau,
    dhanyaha koo api na vikriyaam
    kalayatee praaptee navee yauvanee.

    The poet is declaring. Only one exceptional virtuous individual wil not be moved by the bewitching illusions of the youth. Everybody else will be scintilated, titillated and tempted. (Last two lines). The first six lines compare the youth to:


    a) a cloud which showers and nurture the ‘plant of lust and intercourse’.
    b) a current of water which facilitates the flow of the ‘juice of the lust and intercourse’.
    c) a close kin of the God of Cupid.
    d) an ocean for the pearls of sweet dialogues between the lovers
    e) a river which delights damsels like the moon who pleases the ‘chakravaka’ birds.
