- rākṣasaṁ bhāvam āpannaḥ
- pāde kalmāṣatāṁ gataḥ
- vyavāya-kāle dadṛśe
- vanauko-dampatī dvijau
rākṣasam—man-eating; bhāvam—propensity; āpannaḥ—having gotten; pāde—on the leg; kalmāṣatām—a black spot; gataḥ—obtained; vyavāya-kāle—at the time of sexual intercourse; dadṛśe—he saw; vana-okaḥ—living in the forest; dam-patī—a husband and wife; dvijau—who were brāhmaṇas.
Saudāsa thus acquired the propensity of a man-eater and received on his leg a black spot, for which he was known as Kalmāṣapāda. Once King Kalmāṣapāda saw a brāhmaṇa couple engaged in sexual intercourse in the forest.
