Kirātārjunīyam 18.25This example was recited by H. V. Nagaraja Rao and recorded by Gil Ben-Herut in 2006. Note that H.V.N.R. introduces the verse as an aupacchandasikam, following Mallinātha’s identification of the metrical form of this verse. But the meter is actually svāgatā.
That holy place which can be reached
right here, without going to a great distance,
which confers the desired results on one
after he goes to the next world,
which is outside of the ocean of rebirth,
which answers to every desire —
that is none other than you.
Kirātārjunīyam 9.26This example was recited by H.V. Nagaraja Rao and recorded by Nathan Levine in Toronto in 2018. The recordings were uploaded to archive.org by Anusha Rao. The translation is mine.
The moon rose very slowly and traversed
the sky, all the while receiving
the glances of angry women, stained
with hot tears, as if it were afraid.
