    तं त्वा गताहं शरणं शरण्यं स्वभृत्यसंसारतरोः कुठारम् । जिज्ञासयाहं प्रकृतेः पूरुषस्य नमामि सद्धर्मविदां वरिष्ठम् ।। ३-२५-११ ।।

    Devahūti continued: I have taken shelter of Your lotus feet because You are the only person of whom to take shelter. You are the ax which can cut the tree of material existence. I therefore offer my obeisances unto You, who are the greatest of all transcendentalists, and I inquire from You as to the relationship between man and woman and between spirit and matter. ।। 3-25-11 ।।
