- iti labdha-vyavasthānaḥ
- putraṁ jyeṣṭham avocata
- yado tāta pratīcchemāṁ
- jarāṁ dehi nijaṁ vayaḥ
iti—thus; labdha-vyavasthānaḥ—getting the opportunity to exchange his old age; putram—unto his son; jyeṣṭham—the eldest; avocata—he requested; yado—O Yadu; tāta—you are my beloved son; pratīccha—kindly exchange; imām—this; jarām—invalidity; dehi—and give; nijam—your own; vayaḥ—youth.
When Yayāti received this benediction from Śukrācārya, he requested his eldest son: My dear son Yadu, please give me your youth in exchange for my old age and invalidity.
