bhāryām āha prajāpatiḥ
maitreyaḥ uvāca — the great sage Maitreya said; sva-sargasya — of her own children; āśiṣam — welfare; lokyām — in the world; āśāsānām — desiring; pravepatīm — while trembling; nivṛtta — averted from; sandhyā-niyamaḥ — the rules and regulations of evening; bhāryām — unto the wife; āha — said; prajāpatiḥ — the progenitor.
Maitreya said: The great sage Kaśyapa thus addressed his wife, who was trembling because of fear that her husband was offended. She understood that he had been dissuaded from his daily duties of offering evening prayers, yet she desired the welfare of her children in the world.
