On an auspicious day, Ashwapathi travelled
to the hermitage of Dyumathsena with some of his courtiers. He met Dyumathsena and
enquired about his welfare. He called his daughter and said to Dyumathsena, "She is
my daughter Savithri. I beg you to accept her as your daughter-in-law."
Dyumathsena Maharaja, we have lost out kingdom and are in the forest. How can
this tender Savithri face the troubles of life in the forest? Can she live in a forest?
Can she live on the forest?
Ashwapthi Sir, please grant my payer and make my daughter your daughter in-law.
Under your protection and love she will forget all troubles. I am sure that my daughter
will prove worthy of your affection.
Dyumathsena Even before you came I wished for this match. But we had lost our
kingdom and we are in a forest. How could I speak about this marriage?
The marriage of Sathyavantha and Savithri was celebrated. They became husband and wife.
Savithri rejoiced that she could marry the man who had won her heart. Sathyavantha was
supremely happy that he had such a lovely and good and noble wife.
Ashwapthi had spent eighteen long years in prayers, to be blessed with Savithri for his
daughter. It was not easy for him to beat separation from her. He returned to his kingdom
with a heavy heart.
