Upon the birth of the prince, the future King Kampa, nature responds with the celebration warranted for someone who will soon save the world – or southern India at least.
निश्चित्य देशेष्वपि दक्षिणेषु ।
ननर्त हर्षादिव हव्यवाहः ॥
Realising that sacrificial oblations
would soon be offered in the South too –
the fire danced a jig of joy,
weaving his mass of flames into worshipful arcs,
or so it seemed.
