vrm.7.63 I have heard, O foremost df men, that there lived in the days of yore a highly illustrious, truthful and pure minded king, ever devoted unto the Brahmanas, by the name of Nriga.
vrm.7.63 The king Nriga conferred this upon me.
vrm.7.63 The cow was old and weak so they both, With mutual consent, conferred that upon another Brahman, O Lakshmana, the king Nriga is still sufering from that dreadful curse.
vrm.7.64 Hearing the words of the highly effulgent Rama, Lakshmana, conversant with discrimanative knowledge replied with folded hands, saying "O Kakutstha, it is for a very simple folly that the two Brahmanas imprecated that curse upon the king Nriga, dreadful as the rod of Vana.
vrm.7.64 May I ask thee, O foremost of men, what did that King say unto the Brahmans when he was thus imprecated?" Whereto Rama replied saying: "O gentle one, hear, what the king Nriga said when imprecated.
vrm.7.64 Having made those arrangements and placed Vasu on the throne the king Nriga said "Do not swerve from the path of morality, O my son, and do thou duly govern the subjects according to the custom of the Kshatriyas.
vrm.7.64 O foremost of men, having given this advice unto his son, the highly illustrious king Nriga proceeded to live in the sweet fragrant den.
vrm.7.65 "I have thus given unto thee in account of the curse imprecated on Nriga.
vrm.7.69 And in that case we shall not be degraded like the king Nriga.
