tayoḥ ślokau paṭhanty amū
yathaiva śṛṇumo dūrāt
babhruḥ — Babhru; devāvṛdha — of Devāvṛdha; sutaḥ — the son; tayoḥ — of them; ślokau — two verses; paṭhanti — all the members of the old generation recite; amū — those; yathā — as; eva — indeed; śṛṇumaḥ — we have heard; dūrāt — from a distance; sampaśyāmaḥ — are actually seeing; tathā — similarly; antikāt — presently also.
The son of Devāvṛdha was Babhru. Concerning Devāvṛdha and Babhru there are two famous songs of prayer, which were sung by our predecessors and which we have heard from a distance. Even now I hear the same prayers about their qualities [because that which was heard before is still sung continuously].
