Chapter 18: Verse 71-80



71.After speaking these words, the brähmanas returned home with their elevated wives and enjoyed with them.

79.. . . fair like molten gold, beautiful with smiling lotus faces, and able with a crooked glance to bewilder the minds of the greatest sages.

80.Seeing their beautiful faces, breasts, and hips, the fire-god Agni desired them. He was tormented by the fires of desire.
