Hindi Title ‘Madan Dahan’ 26
Madan* is becoming a naught,
Losing his very existence,
Penance is also vanishing,
Because of your anger, Lord.
Think over the results, O Lord,
Which the anger would produce,
By destroying his very existence,
In the great fire of curse.
How the race of all creatures,
Will survive after Cupid's destruction,
Entire creation will disappear,
If Cupid is burnt alive, O dear Lord.
