- pānīya-mātram uccheṣaṁ
- tac caika-paritarpaṇam
- pāsyataḥ pulkaso 'bhyāgād
- apo dehy aśubhāya me
pānīya-mātram—only the drinking water; uccheṣam—what remained of the food; tat ca—that also; eka—for one; paritarpaṇam—satisfying; pāsyataḥ—when the King was about to drink; pulkasaḥ—a caṇḍāla; abhyāgāt—came there; apaḥ—water; dehi—please give; aśubhāya—although I am a lowborn caṇḍāla; me—to me.
Thereafter, only the drinking water remained, and there was only enough to satisfy one person, but when the King was just about to drink it, a caṇḍāla appeared and said, "O King, although I am lowborn, kindly give me some drinking water."
