Rakshasa, thinks thee deceived and subjugated (by his superior intelligence).  It is for this that thou art pale and lean.  I think, thou art grieving for those persons who with souls overwhelmed by the lust and wrath are suffering misery in this world.  It is for this that thou art pale and lean.  Though graced with the possession of wisdom, thou art ridiculed by others who are entirely destitute of it.  Verily, persons of wicked conduct are condemning thee.  It is for this that thou art pale and lean.  Verily, some enemy of thine, with a friendly tongue, coming to thee behaved at first like a righteous person and then has left thee, beguiling thee like a knave.  It is for this that thou art pale and lean.  Thou art well-conversant with the course of world’s affairs.  Thou art well-skilled in all mysteries.  Thou art endued with capacity.  Those who know thee to be such do not yet respect and praise thee.  It is for this that thou art pale and lean.  Staying in the midst of bad men engaged together in some enterprise, thou hadst discoursed to them, dispelling their doubts.  For all that they did not admit thy superior merits.  It is for this that thou art pale and lean.  Verily, though destitute of wealth and intelligence and Vedic lore, thou desirest yet, with the aid of thy energy alone, to accomplish something great.  It is for this that thou art pale and lean.  It seems that although thou art resolved to undergo severe austerities by retiring into the forest, yet thy kinsmen art not favourably inclined towards this project of thine.  It is this for that thou art pale and lean.  Some neighbour of thine, possessed of great wealth and endued with youth and handsome features, verily, covets thy dear spouse.  It is for this that thou art pale and lean.  The words spoken by thee, even when excellent, in the midst of wealthy men, are not regarded by them as wise or well-timed.  It is for this that thou art pale and lean.  Some dear kinsman of thine, destitute of intelligence though repeatedly instructed in the scriptures, has become angry.  Thou hast not succeeded in pacifying him.  It is for this that thou art pale and lean.  Verily, some-body, having first set thee to the accomplishment of some object desirable to thee is now seeking to snatch the fruit thereof from thy grasp.  It is for this that thou art pale and lean.  Verily, though possessed of excellent accomplishments and worshipped by all on that account, thou art yet regarded by thy kinsmen as worshipped for their sake and not for thy own.  It is for this that thou art pale and lean.  Verily, through shame thou art unable to give out some purpose in thy heart, moved also by the inevitable delay that will occur in its accomplishment.  It is for this that thou art pale and lean.  Verily, thou desirest, with the aid of thy intelligence, to bring under thy influence, diverse persons with diverse kinds of understandings and inclinations.  It is for this that thou art pale and lean.[537] Destitute
