On seeing at that best sage among best meditators Sage Vashishta, the great mighty and valorous Vishvamitra is highly rejoiced and obediently made an obeisance to the sage. (1 52 1) The great souled Vashishta spoke, "you are welcome," and that godly sage has indeed shown a high seat to Vishvamitra. (1 52 2) The eminent saint Vashishta then customarily offered fruits and tuber to the courageous Vishvamitra who by now has assumed a seat. (1 52 3)

On receiving that deference from Vashishta, then that unsurpassed king Vishvamitra asked after the well being of the ascesis, Fire rituals and disciples and their progress in that hermitage, and that great resplendent Vishvamitra has also asked after the well being of flora and fauna of the hermitage, and Vashishta reported to the matchless king about the all round well being of every activity. (1 52 4, 5) Vashishta the supreme one among meditators, a great ascetic, and the brainchild of Brahma has then asked Vishvamitra who is sitting at ease. (1 52 6) I hope that you are fine! And oh, righteous king, hope that you are ruling people righteously with kingly righteousness to their contentment. (1 52 7)

I hope your servants are looked after well, hope all of them are abiding by the rulership, oh, vanquisher of adversaries, I hope that you have surely vanquished all of your adversaries. (1 52 8) For you are an impeccable one and an emery inflamer, oh, tigerly man, I hope that your forces, exchequer and confederates are fine, and all is well with your sons and grandsons." Thus Vashishta asked the well being of Vishvamitra. (1 52 9) "The great resplendent king Vishvamitra respectfully replied Sage Vashishta saying, everything is fine. (1 52 10) "Both of those celebrities of conscientious then exchanged pleasantries for a long time with their rejoice heightening and gladdening one another. (1 52 11)

"Then at the end of discussions, oh, Rama the legatee of Raghu, that godly Sage Vashishta smilingly spoke this sentence to Vishvamitra. (1 52 12) I wish to offer guestship befitting to your status, oh, great forceful king Vishvamitra, to a matchless one like you and to this military force of yours, kindly accept it from me. (1 52 13) You may kindly accept all these hospitalities offered by me, oh king, for you are an important guest you ought to be reverenced effortfully. So said Vashishta to Vishvamitra. (1 52 14)

"When sage Vashishta said in this way, that highly intellectual king Vishvamitra said to him, hospitality is deemed to have been offered to me with your reverential words, it is enough and nothing more is necessary. (1 52 15) I am entertained with whatever item that obtains in your hermitage, say fruits, tubers and water for feet wash and to wet mouth. Why those petty items, I regaled just by seeing you, a godly sage like. Oh, highly noetic sage, by yourself you are a sage worthy to be reverenced by one and all, such as you are you alone have reverenced me. Now I wish to take leave, please accept my obeisance to you, and please look upon us with a friendlily regard. (1 52 16, 17) Even if the king was speaking in this way obliquely to him, that virtue souled and magnanimous sage Vashishta entreated the king repeatedly. (1 52 18)

Gaadhi" s son Vishvamitra then replied the eminent saint Vashishta, "Agreed! As it pleases the godly sage. So be it! (1 52 19) "When Vishvamitra said that way then Vashishta, the best one among meditators, and one whose blemishes are laved is gladdened, and started calling his speckled cow, namely Shabala, yclept Kaamadhenu. (1 52 20) Come on, oh, Shabala! Come quickly and listen to my words. I prepared to accord hospitality with a highly delectable royal banquet to this kingly sage together with all his forces. You arrange it for me. (1 52 21)

"Oh, Kaamadhenu, the Divine Cow, the Milker of All Desires, for my sake you shower whatsoever foodstuff is savoured by whosoever according to one s own piquancy from each of the six savour, that too plentifully. (1 52 22) Oh, Shabala, you create heaps of savourily foodstuffs comprised of masticable items like crunchy foods, drinkable items like soft drinks, tasteable items like honey like viscous dishes, squeezable items like pulpy fruits, and be quick. So said Sage Vashishta to that Sacred Cow, Kaamadhenu, and Vishvamitra continued his narration. (1 52 23)
