Kim sharvarishu shashinanhi vivasvata va

yushman mukhendu daliteshu tamassu natha!

Nishpanna shalivana shalini jivaloke

karyam kiyajjaladharairjalabhara namraih.

O Lord of the Universe! Where is the need of the sun during the day and the moon during the night when your ever radiant face sweeps away the darkness of the world. Indeed, once the crop is ripe what is the need of the thundering rain clouds.
